Brown & Caldwell, Take Two

If you've been following along, you know that last summer, I face painted at a corporate picnic for Brown & Caldwell.  Well, I was glad to get a call again this summer, especially since they moved the picnic from June to August and I was starting to think they didn't want me.  Happily, I was wrong.

This time around, the weather was much better, not too hot and with some cloud cover, so I got to play and have some fun.

You know I love creative kids, so when my first two requests were for a dragon, which is always fun for me, and a neon pink zebra with purple stripes, I knew it was going to be a good party.

I did, of course, have the requisite Spideys and butterflies.

 And you know I love my zombies!

But the young man attached to this arm had never allowed anyone to paint him before (I got to be first!) and wanted a tattoo like dads, a race car with a lightning bolt.  Even as I was painting it, the little guy kept exclaiming, "I love it!  I love it!"  Best customer ever!

And another young'un my last "customer" of the day, loved his dinosaur.

I had enough time to do the kiddos' faces and arms.

And characters are always fun.

Including the newest popular one, Elsa.

She wasn't the only princess, though.

And I had one beautiful adult who was game to get in on the fun.

Looking forward to next year!

Dream Team

On Friday night, I had the privilege and honor to paint faces at the Franklin Lakes Dream Team Baseball Program summer party.  It was probably the most amazing thing I've ever done.  The people were phenomenal and the event like nothing I've ever attended.  Everyone was wonderful.  I only hope I get to work at many more like it.

Zombie Land

I recently painted and did glitter tattoos at a 7th birthday party at Frank's Pizza in Oakland, NJ.  It was a fun place for a party, actually; the kids got to make their own personal pizzas in between getting their balloons from the twister the family hired and face painting and tattoos from me.

The birthday girl chose a leopard, and her little sister a lion cub.

They were so cute.  My little lion kept roaring, even through the singing of Happy Birthday!

I had a couple more cats, too, of both the wild and house variety.

This time, the odd faces out were the monkey, butterfly, and smilie.

Why?  Because even more popular than my cats were my zombies!  We had a whole zombie horde, all shuffling and moaning and groaning.  They were out-and-out hilarious.

Better watch out!
