Party Tips

Before you book

Choose  your party theme and a coordinating character(s)
Have several dates and time options if you are wanting a specific character, as we book fast
Please try to book about a month in advance if you are requesting a  specific date/time and character
Please note all appearances should be held indoors in a climate-controlled area. We have a lot invested in making our characters as real life as possible and this helps to preserve our look.

How To Prepare

It is very important to update us two days before your event for a final guest count.. For more information, please check our FAQ page.
Have guests arrive a minimum of a 1/2hr to 1hr BEFORE our appearance, we wouldn’t want anyone to miss it!
As much as we love animals please have them put away during our appearance.
To make for more magic (and great photos) encourage your guests to dress in your theme
Please have your contact cell phone near you as we arrive, we will send a text before coming to the door!
Please have an area set aside for the backdrop and a table for us to put supplies. Remember that your character may have an attendant with them to aid in setup. They will not interfere with your party in any way.. Their sole purpose is to make sure things are running smoothly and to help our character.
If you have not already made payment arrangements, please pay your attendant or performer discretely. Understand that they may not be aware if you have tipped them until after they have left. Please know that the performers appreciate this greatly.

What to Expect

Have those cameras ready! We have realistic characters to help create magical memories lasting a lifetime.
Reliability - we are proud to say we have never let a child down by missing their event.
Safety - we have done background checks on our performers.
Our performers know and love children. Our event mission is to give personal attention to your child and bring their dreams to life!
Our characters arrive in full costume to best preserve the magic.
Please return your completed booking contract asap, as your event will not be confirmed without this.

Photography Tips and Tricks

The backdrop looks best if it does not have a window or light behind it. It is fully adjustable, but please set aside room. It is a free-standing setup and will not require attaching to walls in anyway. Because of this, please take care in keeping children from going near it. We are not responsible for damage or injury involving our equipment.
Be sure to take some pictures zoomed in as well as zoomed out. The zoomed in ones will have better quality when retouching later. And the zoomed out ones can better be cropped to include the backdrop.
Please take clear turns taking photos of the posed pictures, as it can be hard to keep little ones smiling and we aren't sure who we are supposed to be looking at when five parents all have their camera out.
We believe in making your child's dreams come true by bringing the magic of a real princess or super-hero to your home
