About Custom Fantastic / Hennatopia

hired 12 times on Thumbtack

Whether you are looking for entertainment for a younger or an older audience, I have you covered. I provide all natural (NOT BLACK) henna that I mix myself, Face Painting for all ages, glitter tattoos which everyone loves, and basic balloon twisting to spice up the party.

You can choose up to two of these services for every two hours that you book me and each one gets an hour, or more, of time devoted to them. Great combos include face painting and balloon animals, glitter tattoos and henna, and face painting and glitter tattoos. All services are billed on an hourly basis and parties are a minimum of two hours.

My henna services can include everything from small intimate gatherings where everyone gets complex designs, to rowdy Grad Night Lock-Ins where I'm doing fast and fun designs for as many students as want them. The line usually never ends on a Grad Night!

If you are wanting face painting I offer everything from complex special effects to fast festival faces. I started painting faces when I was a teen and am always improving my skills through online courses, practice, and working with other artists. Your company picnic or birthday party will be the talk on everyone's lips with this great addition, and kids of all ages love it.

Glitter tattoos are a fun add on, but can be great all on your own. Oh sure, you've seen the kits on TV, but they can be difficult to work with and they fade quickly. I use a higher grade body-safe glue as well as having 100, or so, different designs to choose from. In addition to the stencils I offer, I also can do freehand designs of most of the henna designs in my extensive design booklets.

While I don't claim to be a master balloon twister, I can bring you the basics and a bit more. Kids love having swords and shields for their imaginary battles, or poodles to lead around on imaginary leashes. Flowers and wands can make for a magical party as can super silly and crazy hats. This is a great add on to any of the above services offered.

Hourly rates vary depending on the size of your event and what supplies I need to bring, so please contact me for more information, or check out my website.

Kelly had this to say, "Thank you to Ana Warren of Blooming Lotus Henna and Veronica Lacquement of Hennatopia for the beautiful Henna rose and decorations on me and my daughter's hands today at the renaissance faire. We had fun and love our henna designs."

    Face painting at our company picnic. Veronica was fantastic, this kids absolutely loved her painting! We already had a report of a child crying because she had to wash her face before bedtime! Her skills were an amazing plus to our picnic!

    Veronica at Hennatopia helped us out with our company picnic and she was a huge hit. We decided to get both the henna and face painting services and she was in such a high demand that we had her stay even later. The only thing that could have been better was that the henna stain stayed a light color on several people even when left on over five hours. Other than that I would definitely recommend her!

  • 5/5 stars Henna Tattooing Verified Review

    Veronica came to our company summer picnic and was amazing! She showed up early to set up, did an amazing job with both the henna and the glitter tattoos, and was very personable. I would definitely recommend Veronica to others and I will keep her in mind for future events.

    We loved Veronica! She was fast and WONDERFUL, all the paintings were amazing. She had a line of kids (and parents) waiting for the fun, and she handled the craziness well. I would recommend Veronica for any party or fun event!

    I have loved every henna piece that I have gotten. It is always intricate and beautiful, and she always makes sure to explain how to make it last the longest. I am actually really excited to get it done again!

    Veronica did a fantastic job and my granddaughters birthday party!

    My first experience with Hennatopia was when I purchased an "artist's choice" henna design at a fair. I couldn't have been happier with the beautiful art she created. The quality of the henna used was very good, and lasted much longer than I've experienced from other henna artists in the past. My second experience was at an intro to henna class she conducted, which was a ton of fun and incredibly informative. I can't say enough good things!

Question and answer

Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

A. I recently attended a henna conference where I learned from some of the leading artists in the country.

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. A few years ago I was going through a medical procedure. I wanted to decorate my body with good luck charms, but wanted to use something that was natural, safe, and would last for several weeks.
I knew about henna and so got some and used it. I was impressed and pleased with the result. It was also something very fun to do. Over the following years I practiced on myself, friends, and family.
The last step that made me decide to make this a business was when I decided to do henna at a small fundraiser. It went very well and from that I was hired to do a birthday party. Everyone kept telling me I should pursue this as a profession. I finally decided to follow the advice!

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. Parties are probably the most common event that I am hired for. Usually these are birthday parties for teenagers. Henna makes a great activity for any party, however, and will allow guests to remember the good times they had for one to four weeks after.

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. Avoid black henna at all costs. Black henna is not henna. It uses a chemical known as PPD which is not approved for use on the skin. While some people may not have any reactions, others have serious reactions. Some of these reactions are swelling, pain, scarring and nerve damage.

Henna should always be a brown color and when it dries look raised up on the skin. Real henna is made from a powder that is green in color and mixed with an acidic liquid (lemon juice, vinegar, tea, etc) and sometimes essential oils. If the pictures shown to you are black and flat, that is black henna and dangerous.
