Myself, the owner, our employees and their families where very pleased with the services that were provided by Awesome Family Entertainment for our company winter party. I must say they have the best Santa Claus I have ever seen. He was full of the holiday spirit and his wife knew how to interact with the kids. The song they sung for their farewell was a nice touch. The face painting elves were amazing and I thought elves were just good at making toys, but they can faceprint amazedly and play games very well. The popcorn machine was a nice touch in addition to the wonderful visual of the machine sitting on an old style cart, the smell of fresh popcorn was very refreshing and add to the flair of the party. The operator was very professional and clean cut. Everyone had a blast posting photos and video's of each other dancing around with the snowman. Again, everyone was very pleased with this company! EXCELLENT JOB

Cristol (with Fantastic Faces by Cristol) is one of the most amazing face paint artists. Not only can she deliver a variety of characters and designs, she is absolutely awesome (not awkward at all!!!) with the children. They love her. She did face painting at our fundraiser and by far, it was every child's favorite part of the event (better than bounce houses, games, football throwing, cupcakes, etc). My little boy still talks about it days later! Her heart is pure, her talents are real! I can't wait to plan another event and have Cristol be a part again. ❤️

I really enjoyed working with Sam Antics. She is very kind and professional. Everytime she creates a look on my face, her products are always clean. I also always get many compliments from others. I personally think that she is talented because she takes direction extremely well. When I have described a look I wanted, she is able to use her creativity to perfect the desired makeup look. I will definitely work with Sam Antics again in the future, I also recommend anyone wanting to recieve high quality service to work with her as well!

A Face Painting Mom (or in the end the dad, a balloon twister) came to our kids birthday party and made balloon animals for an hour engagement. He did a great job, the kids really enjoyed it. We are a little far for them, so we paid an extra transportation fee, and he was a little late trying to find us. But he actually stayed a little longer than an hour trying to make sure all the kids (especially the smaller ones who hadn't pushed ahead at the beginning of the party) got a balloon. He was very patient and sweet especially with the not really talking yet contingent. All in all, we thought it was a great success and would definitely recommend the family (I think their daughter also does balloons and as the company name implies, the mom paints faces!) to anyone looking for entertainment for a children's party. Very good experience.

Erica was very responsive, personable, professional, and did a great job with the kids. The children had a great time. Overall it was extremely easy to book her and she took care of her own setup and clean up.

A lot of other face painters require their customers to pick their paint designs from a menu board. Kabuki allows our customer's imaginations to be the limit for how they want to be painted! We are always participating in paint jams and workshops to develop and refine our skills as artists and so the quality of our work only improves and allows us greater understanding of our craft so that we're able to offer better quality and selection than our competition.

I am a Columbus based illustrator and fine artist. My career began in high school, where I was the makeup artist for a variety of shows and theater productions. After I graduated, I attended the Columbus College of Art and Design and supported myself doing makeup, balloon animals, and face painting for kids' parties. I love to transform both children and adults into whatever fun and fantastical creation they can imagine.
