Our friends recommended Jen to us, and she exceeded expectations! Our twins were thrilled that "Elsa" came to their 4 year old birthday party. Jen kept around 15 children occupied with magic, face painting, balloon twisting and of course, many Frozen songs! The twins were so happy that they have asked for "Anna" to come their birthday next year...

The Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) Police Department's 2nd Annual Halloween Trunk or Treat was another huge success with thanks to so many people. The department showed up in full force to provide a safe, fun, and positive Halloween event for the communities near the South Hayward and Coliseum stations. Thank you so much to everyone who provided donations and also to those who attended the event with their families. Everyone’s participation was appreciated and contributed to the success of Trunk or Treat. At our South Hayward BART station, we were lucky enough to have two special guests: The Hayward Fire Department, Station #7 and the most incredible artist and face painter: Sarah Joy of Joyful Expressions. From the time Sarah Joy arrived, there was a long line of excited children waiting to have their faces painted. While they patiently waited, Sarah Joy provided pictures of her designs for the children to choose. She brought smiles to faces of the children and their parents as they watched sons transformed into batman and pirates or daughter into butterflies or Dia de Los Muertos. Sarah worked quickly and was able to accommodate a continuous line of children for 2 hours without any break. She was the highlight of our 2017 Trunk or Treat. We would highly recommend Sarah Joy and Joyful Expressions to other police agencies, community groups or families looking for a dependable, professional and creative face painter to add to your events.

I hired Celia for face painting at my daughter's 1st birthday party. Celia is a very nice young lady who is very good with children. The quality of her paint and the art that she draw on the children's faces were beautiful. My party had more than 150 people and about 1/3 were children. Celia managed to turn around many cute faces without sacrificing any quality!

For my daughter’s 12th birthday, Amulya did henna tattoos for the kids and adult guests. Everyone was fascinated on how fast Amulya worked in creating different designs for everyone. Thanks for making our first henna tattoo experience a delightful one!

The children and adults, including myself, loved her work. We had more children then expected and she worked very diligently with them all. The glitter tattoo artist had plenty of choices too. We will utilize her services in the near future. It was well worth the value.

We had an excellent experience with Lisa from Pacific Face Painters. She was very personable, and did an amazing job working with over 20 children (and a few adults). The quality of her work was very detailed. Both children and parents were impressed by her artwork. I won't hesitate to hire Lisa for any future events. Thank you, Lisa. You are a rock star!

WOW, WOW, WOW! The magic, the illusions, the crowd interaction & the over all "WOW" factor, ANDY AMYX has it all! From the start he was quick to answer, more than fair prices and professional. He made my daughter's graduation party a moment to remember, not just for her but all of our guests. Everyone from from small children, teens, adults to the wonderfully matured seniors, we had a large age group to please. He did so seamlessly and with ease, including everyone. Leaving us full of laughter and amazed. I can't recommend him enough. If your looking for a seasoned, well educated magician (illusionist) Andy is your guy. We felt privileged to have had the experience of seeing him and can't wait until we can think of another function to hire him at once again. We have already begun recommending him to friends, family & co-workers. Want a truly memorable experience, then hire Andy Amyx, you will NOT be disappointed! Thank you Andy! Suzanne

All Star Showgrams was amazing to work with! They were quick, very professional, and made the process of booking very easy. We were SO THRILLED when Batman (Tom) came to our twins' superhero birthday party. Not only was he not scary in his Batman costume for an audience that ranged from infant to 9 yr old, but he was super friendly and entertaining. His costume, attitude, voice were all on point and I'd highly recommend him and this company to any family that needs a character...especially Tom for Batman. He entertained a rowdy group of 14 kids (mainly preschool age) for over 2 hours!!! Money well spent!!!

I had a Marvel Black Panther theme birthday party and what she had never done that facial design before. However a couple days before the event she had found a design showed it to me and on the day of the party the kids loved it. I loved it the parents loved it she did an awesome job. She was a very nice always smiling very professional I'm extremely happy that I hired her for my son's 5th birthday party. Though all of the children decided to get black panther she did do a couple other the designs that came out wonderfully as well. Her prices are also super reasonable. If you need a face painter that does arm designs and glitter tattoos and all that fun stuff I would definitely recommend her. I'm sure she'll probably beat this design so I just want to say thank you again so very much. Signed very happy mom.

I hired Kaella for my daughters 5 th birthday mermaid party. She came dressed as a beautiful blue mermaid and was so sweet and professional with everyone she encountered. I really appreciated that she utilized her time well and even blew bubbles and played games when there was time between face painting and balloon making. (Which are the only two things I was expecting/paying for) also she was VERY patient with the kids. There were several special needs children that needed extra attention and then of course the dozens of popped balloons by all the children, and still Kaella was sweet and accommodating. Even teaching the kids how to not pop the balloons by making up silly stories about cloud Ballon puppies. All the kids were happy and entertained. And for me I felt a lot of party entertainment needed relief. I was actually able to sit back and have some pizza and enjoy watching the happiness on my daughters face. Good job kaella. I would recommend for any kids party.
