Introduction: Working with children for 30+ years has given me a rounded understanding of children from special needs to highly intellegent. As a children's minister, I was director of all the children's programs including camps, VBS programs, and ministering at other children's ministries. Bringing laughter while teaching has been a part of my life's goal. Entertainment review: "Gigi was and IS the best! This was our first time hiring someone to entertain at our sons birthday party. Let me just tell you my 7 year old felt so special by Gigi! She has a way of lighting up the whole room. She made balloon animals for all the kids. We had a blast. I even had a balloon animal made for me! Gigi is talented and we will 100% hire her again for our next birthday and/or event. I’m so thankful she put such a highlight on my sons birthday that I truly believe he will always remember." I enjoy providing my skills as a face painter, balloon artist, glitter tattoos, Stuffing Balloons and making Candy Cups to entertain and bring joy to others. It is my delight to bring huge smiles and wonder as I entertain. In the 90's I taught and formed a Christian clown group. We went to nursing homes, festivals, revivals, and church events. After moving to Virginia Beach in 2013, I joined a clown group in Virginia Beach and have continued working. My work experience includes festivals, birthday parties, holiday events, The Tides, The Admirals, business events, church groups, festivals, neighborhood gatherings and corporate events. I welcome you to contact me with any questions or to book an event. Thank you, Susan Beach Beach Children's Entertainment GiGi the Grandmother

Face Painting

This is the second year we’ve used Susan and her team for our 1000+ person event. The kids love it and wait in line for a long time to get their faces painted and/or twisted balloons. I highly recommend Susan for your event! Brian Owens Lead Pastor Vertical Church, Chesapeake

Face Painting

First, my granddaughter is terrified of costumes, Ms Gigi came dressed perfectly. My granddaughter first face paint was done with creative artistry. Gigi patience ensured that my granddaughter ( autistic) would want another face painting. Patient, fun, happy, and truly artistic. The other kids loved it too. The balloons were adorable and she took the time to create personal experience for everyone. We will hire again. Thank you, Gigi

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Face Painting or Animal Balloon for 1 hour with 12 or less children is $100.00 It is $50 for every hour thereafter for 12 or less children. When there are more than 12 guests the quote will change according to skills requested and hours worked. I do try to be reasonable with the prices. A non refundable deposit will be required to reserve your event date. A travel fee of $50 will be added when traveling over 40 miles and toll charges will be added to as well. Payment can be received through PayPal with a $25 CC fee. However, cash is preferred as payment. Military clients receive a 10% discount.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    When a potential customer contacts me, I get pertinent information: What type of event are you planning? How many guests are you expecting? What type of skills are you wanting at the event? How long do you want entertainers for the event?

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

    Worked as a children's director for 10 years at Life Tabernacle. Trained clowns for a clown ministry during this period. After moving to Virginia Beach, VA, I began clowning with a clown group in 2012 for events. Other Training: Entertainment festivals 2012, 2013, 2015, Clown Abbey 2012-2016 and online training.
