Excellent!!! Ashley. We're very satisfied in her service ( balloon twist & face painting ) and we would like to recommend her service if you are looking for event activities. We had two times in March and our customers were very happy and enjoyed having face painting & balloon twist during open house. We definitely do again. Thank you soooooooo much!!!

Jennifer did and incredible job for our daughter's 3rd birthday party. She is so great with kids and really helped even the shy ones give it a try. A lot of the adults got in on the fun, too! Her work is so beautiful. I have never seen someone do such intricate work on such little kids. Everyone agreed it was the best face painting experience they had ever had! I highly recommend her!

Celia came early to our 2nd birthday party and was a big hit! She was really easygoing and even offered to help set up. The kids' face painting designs were adorable and she did a great job even with moving participants who could not sit still. She was patient and got along with all the kids very well. Thanks, Celia!!

Marcela is very talented. We hired her for my son's second birthday party-- Star Wars theme. She not only nailed every Star War character request but also every other request ranging from Sponge Bob, Power Rangers, unicorns, butterflies, to sports logos. All the kids were ecstatic and all the adults were impressed. There were quite a few adults in the face painting line. I highly recommend Fascinating Face and Body Painting

It was for my daughter's 4 year birthday. Kim showed up right on time and did an amazing job. Kids love the balloon especially the mermaid. And her face painting was even better. Definitely recommend her.

Ms. Griffin was a clown for my son's 1-year old birthday party. She made balloon animals and did face-painting and a magic show, and was a wonderful spirit for all of us there. I'm so grateful for her work and highly recommend her to anyone wanting a special touch to their party!

I had the pleasure of working for Lisa Smiley during the summer of 2013 at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk as a member of her face painting staff. I performed opening and closing duties, as well as the face painting both at the Boardwalk and for private events under the auspices of Smiley Orca. Lisa Smiley is far and away the best employer I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She consistently puts herself on the line for her employees and maintains a level of professionalism rare in today's market. Her passion for her work is an inspiration to all in her employ and serves to foster a warm, coherent and productive work environment. She is neither a ruthless taskmaster nor a pushover, finding a comfortable balance of flexible and firm. Her commitment is unparalleled, and the dedication to her own business and those who work for it is truly astounding. The team she handpicks and trains provide face painting services on a level which to this day I have yet to see echoed in the open market, and her fellow managers help to reinforce that same level of professionalism and commitment. I can only recommend Smiley Orca and Lisa Smiley for any and all face painting needs, because anything else is settling for for the scraps.

On time, kids and women did a lot of face painting and henna. Everyone enjoyed. No kids complained of any allergy to face painting in the following days. Would highly recommend divya.

I hired Estrella as a face painter for a special event for Amazon and she has even filled in for me at Facebook when I was unavailable. She is so sweet with the kids and families too. She is definitely an artist that will go above and beyond to make you happy. She also has an awesome open-air photobooth service. I hired her for my daughter's 5th birthday party. It's great to have space to add more to the picture and it also helps that the booth manager is sweet and engaging as well. I always receive great feedback from guests that she has worked with and I highly recommend her for any type of event.

We had a wonderful experience with Happily Ever Laughter and recommend them to anyone looking for something special for their child's birthday celebration. The entire experience was professional and enjoyable from booking to the big day. Miss Monarch was perfect! She had a magical presence, sang and performed beautifully and delighted all the children (both boys and girls) aged 1-5. We reserved face painting, a magic puppet show and sing-along. The children were all mesmerized by her show and singing and the parents were thrilled to sit back and enjoy as well (and later raved about her as well). She ended the show by gathering everyone together for cake and a sing-a-long of Happy Birthday making it a perfect birthday party from beginning to end. By far my favorite part was when she arrived at our door and surprised my daughter. She was completely enchanted by this beautiful Mermaid who showered her with special attention and began talking with her in character from the very beginning. She never broke character, even in our conversations leading up to the event. Prior to the party we had several questions and the fairies were always prompt and courteous in responding. Miss Monarch as well as the other fairies in the team were very helpful in making recommendations and answering questions to help us prepare. We would happily book them again for a future celebration.

    Erin did a fabulous job for me . I recently moved to the Rocklin area and wanted a painting depicting the surrounding terrain. She knew exactly what I was talking about. We went back and forth with a few sketches, a preliminary and then the final product. It was beautiful. The painting has so much depth, and the sky is phenomenal. Can't say enough good things about my experience.

    I used Kool Kidz for my 1 yr old Minnie Mouse Party, they were able to accommodate my last minute request. They were absolutely fantastic, they got here exactly on tome and ready! They ring the doorbell and my 1 yr old girl was so excited to see Minnie, they played games and other activities and took pictures with the family and cake! Minnie took a picture with us in the photo booth before she left. Moments that we will have forever. I highly recommend Cool Kidz and Tiffany for your event! Once again Thank You!
