    Maureen was so great with the kids at my son's first birthday party. She was a total hit and probably my best investment at the party. Highly recommended!

    We hired MoMo to do face painting for my daughters birthday party last year (sorry took so long to review). We ABSOLUTELY loved her work!! I to this day can't stop raving about her work. I have given her contact info to a few people I hope they contacted her because she is well worth every penny we paid. Thinking about hiring her for an adult only party!! Lol
    Thanks MoMo!!

    Maureen was great! Very professional! She came in costume and was so popular she had a long line all night long!! She had to cut the line off at the end of the event, which was unfortunate but understandable- or she might have been there all night!! I would hire her again and recommend her to others! Thank you Maureen!!

    Maureen is fabulous, people person, and truly gifted at what she does! In addition, she is a generous, kind hearted, and sincere person. She is the kind of person who comes early & stays late and never abandons her work, which exemplifies her passion and dedication! I have already spoke to Chamberlain college about using her exclusively for future events! Thank you so much for sharing your passion with us and making the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer walk stand out!

    Could not have had a better experience with Momo. She exceeded my expectations. It was my sons first birthday and I had no idea what to do. She came in and took charge of all the kids and they were entertained the ENTIRE time! Her face painting skills are amazing and the kids kept going back for more. So glad I found her. She dressed as theCat in the Hat for my cat in the hat theme and brought along two adorable helpers as Thing 1 and Thing 2. They entertained while she face painted. Will definitely be using her for future parties and if I could give more stars I would.

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. Balloon Twisting
Face Painting
MoMo Silly Magic Show
Song & Dance Routines, Interactive Games

Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.

A. Doing the MoMo Magic Show for a three year old's birthday; face painting and balloon twisting as a fairy godmother for a little girl's birthday party;
Doing face painting for a one year old birthday celebration;
Providing airbrushed and glitter tattoos for a Tween Slumber party.

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Talk to the business owner. Ask questions! Get a feel for the person coming to entertain your friends, family and children.

Are they willing to work with you to tailor their services to match your event?

Look out for "yes men". If they don't have limits, they arent' being honest with you. No performer can single handedly entertain 100 children in an hour where everyone get a balloon and/or face painting. It's also fair to ask, just how many guests can be serviced in an hour? Ask what their limits are, and compare when you are shopping around.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. Be sure the performer is insured and is using child safe standards such as professional grade face paint versus acrylic paints on the skin. Another thing to watch out for: we don't give balloons to children under the age of 1 due to choking hazards. Our motto is if the child isn't old enough to ask for a balloon, they might be too young to have one.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. Is this their career or just something they do on the side? Are they professional? Are they insured? Do they work with you to customize their services to your event? Do they have a website they can refer you to look at? Do they have a variety of pictures for you to look at? Can they give you referrals?

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. I am considered an entertainer in my professional field, which means that I can provide multiple services for my clients. I am continually educating myself to grow professionally so that I can provide not only the best skills for my clients, but offer them a wide variety of options to choose from. I work as a professional clown, face painter, body artist, balloon twister, balloon decorator, magician, temporary body artist, henna/mehendi artist and airbrush artist.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. I love making people laugh. The looks of awe that I get when performing are so worthwhile. Seeing a child's face light up over a face painting or really great balloon sculpture is so fun. Also when the kids run and hug me at the end of a show - priceless.

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. Can I get a combination of services? Absolutely, just make sure you allow enough time foe everything. If you have 20 children and you'd like both balloons and face painting, remember an hour for each service. That gives us approximately 3 minutes for each service per child. If you are looking for premium services, you'll want to increase the length of our stay or bring in two performers, which we will happily accommodate.

Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?

A. I routinely attend conferences geared toward the entertainment community. I teach at face painting conventions and regularly attend balloon and clown jams, conferences and meetings.
