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. ❤️

Caitlin painted a hummingbird mural for me and it is absolutely beautiful! It was a pleasure having her work in our home. Will be asking her to do another soon.

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 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!

Excellent service from Awesome Family Entertainment. We had a family day at our business and they added lots of AWESOMENESS to it with their bounce houses, clowns, face painters and costume characters. The kids went crazy for Elmo and Mickey. The costume was very good and the actors were interactive and friendly. The clowns were a huge hit with their magic and balloon making. Connie did amazing face painting. The kids had to battle the line with the adults! I would recommend two face painters if you are going to have lots of guests. It was a huge hit. Our day was a total success and it is because we used the most Awesome Entertainment company in Columbus! Thank you.
