Jen was great. She kept the kids attention for almost 45 min with an adorable puppet show and sing-a-long. She made the birthday girl feel special with a special necklace. But two things. My daughter really wanted to show her a book and I get that wasn't part of the show but she just ignored her. I wish she would have just acknowledged it. And she gave herself a 10 min window to be late and was then ten minutes after that. So it started 20 min after I wanted it to. She did call but I think she was a bit overbooked. All in all it was great and I would do it again in a heartbeat. My daughter loved it and my friends and I thought she was one of the best performers we have seen.

Annie was very friendly and the kids enjoyed her. She has an artists syle to her graphics and the characters were nicely painted. The color on some could be more vivid. I would hire her again. She may want to include in her post that the fastest way to communicate with her is via electronic mail on Thumbtack.

He was very entertaining. He did a wonderful job entertaining children (ages 2-11) for my son's 7 year old birthday party as well as entertaining the adults at the party. He showed up early to the party and was very professional and reasonably priced. We are very satisfied and would recommend him to anyone needing quality entertainment!

Miss Amber came as Wonder Woman to my daughter's superhero 4th birthday party. It was her first time coming as Wonder Woman and she did a great job with her costume. She had 19 superheroes to tend to and she used all her two hours making awesome balloons and facepainting--most of them superhero themed-- for the kids. I had nothing but positive feedback from all the parents. They said she was amazing. Super Amber even went out of her way to make another balloon for one of the kids whose balloon had popped and repainted another girls face(because her father accidentally washed it out). The only reason why I'm giving four and a half stars is that I wish she had done more than her face painting and balloon making. Engaging the kids in a superhero themed activity or short game before her balloon making would've been awesome. I was a little disappointed she didn't do this as we had discussed it over the phone when interviewing her. However, given that she had only two hours and 19 kids under the age of 6, it probably would've been difficult to do. Her hourly rate is very reasonable compared to other entertainers I've checked out online. I would probably add another hour, though, if you have a lot of kids in your party. If she adds more games as part of her package or something to involve the kids in (to maker her character more believable)-in addition to her signature face painting and balloon making, I think she will become more successful. Thanks Miss Amber for making my daughter's superhero birthday party memorable!

I was very pleased with Angela. Her face painting was excellent and she was great with the kids and very easy to work with. My guests commented positively on her face painting skills and a couple of the moms got her card so they could use her in the future. She would very pleasant to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone. She also made balloon swords for the kids.

Connecting with Alan for our kid's first birthday event turned out to be one of the best decision. He has lot of tricks up his sleeve and keeps the guest entertained non stop. He was very accommodative with some of the events running over time. He did a walk around magic tricks and center stage entertainment. Everyone totally loved him. He's also good hearted and a very nice person to interact with.

I had an absolute blast on my wedding. Everyone was gushing about how memorable it is because they saw a live caricaturist at work while she drew the guest in real time. Sharon is so amazing! I booked her a month before my wedding since I decided last minute to have a caricature artist. She told me that I would need to do/have so I had an easy time coordinating with the wedding planner/venue. Very easy to work with and was very clear in our communications so she was one of the vendors I didn't have to worry about. She was very popular and probably never had a break because everyone wanted to have their caricature drawn - she was that good! I originally had her for 2.5 hours and had to extend because she was so popular. She even accommodated my guests crazy requests and my not so prompt guests who sat in last minute. Seriously, I was watching her draw one of my guests and I was in such awe of what she was doing, my husband had to remind me to eat my salad because they were about to bring the main course! She chatted my guests up and made them feel comfortable while she drew them even though we were blasting music on the other side of the room! She drew everyone with a smile! Thank you Sharon for making our wedding day an absolute perfection! We are already thinking of our next big party and the one thing my husband and I decided was to have Sharon entertain our guests with her lively caricatures!!!

My company hired a balloon artist through All Star Showgrams for our holiday party this past weekend. I could not be happier with their service! Our artist was on time, came dressed up! and was very professional. Her work was great and the few kids that attended our party loved her as well as our adult guests! Thank you All Star Showgrams for the fantastic entertainment and thank you Thumbtack for connecting us with them!

Everyone really enjoyed the face painting and detailed designs. The metallic/chrome balloons were also a hit. My son fell in love with Elmo and didn't leave his side. I was glad to have all 3 services from one entertainer. I will definitely use her services again and highly recommend for affordable and good quality work.

Thank you "My Once Upon a Time" for making my daughter's 1st birthday party such a success!! Belle and Superman were absolutely wonderful!! It was such a pleasure and so easy to work with Loni when I contacted them, and they arrived on time and stayed in character the whole time. They were so sweet with the kids, and really kept (all ~35 of them!) entertained and engaged :). Also, we had parents telling us that they were the best looking characters they'd seen!! Kids (and parents) were so happy and excited to have them there. The kids kept entertained with balloons, tattoos, story time and bubbles =). We're are so happy they were part of making our party a success~ we would high recommend them for everyone and look forward to working with them again for our future parties =)

She is a real life sprite capable of lighting up a party simply by walking into it. The kids all gravitated to her incredible life force. She entertains while keeping the children calm and engaged.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a fortune teller do?

A fortune teller offers insight into people’s past, present and future through private readings. Some fortune tellers read palms or use tarot cards, runes, or tea leaves to see into a client’s future. Other fortune tellers consider themselves psychics, numerologists and mystics who look for patterns and meaning in seemingly random events, such as stirred tea leaves or the draw of a tarot card. By interpreting what they see in the cards or leaves, fortune tellers answer their clients’ questions about their lives, such as who or when they’ll marry, whether they should quit their job, or whether they should have a baby. Tarot card readings are a particularly popular way of having your future told, because they’re such a familiar method of fortune telling. More importantly, you can guide a tarot reading by asking the specific questions that are most important to you. By interpreting the cards you’ve drawn, the fortune teller may give you new insight into yourself and help you make an important decision. For some people, fortune tellers are simply amusing, but for others, they offer helpful guidance and spiritual nourishment.
