Opt for a plastic tiki mask with your Hawaiian lei and luau attire. Grab a mai tai and you'll look like a Hawaiian god ready to party. As with grass skirts, just be careful around the tiki torches. Don't try juggling tiki torches while wearing a mask. Your luau clothing may be breezy and comfortable, but your mask will get hot, especially if you're dancing around the barbecue pit. Make sure you have some slack in the band around your head, and take your mask off regularly. Otherwise, you may give off so much steam from your hula costume that people might mistake you for Mauna Kea about to erupt!
