Why is face painting so expensive? Why do you have to pay so much to have a princess come to your party? Why can’t you just have a 30min mascot visit?

Because almost all of our clients are party parents on a budget (although most of our income is actually from corporate clients on an even tighter budget) we’ve always put a lot of effort into keeping our prices down and our packages flexible enough for everyone to afford.

But we also understand it can be frustrating when you don’t see a package or price you had hoped for. So in the spirit of transparency in our business and respect for our clients, we published a breakdown of why, exactly, party entertainment can be so pricey.

Ever wonder what’s in face paint? (Is it really paint? Does it have any peanuts, soy, milk, or animal products? What about latex? Heavy metals?) What about perfumes? Is it okay for sensitive skin?

We use only 2 supplies for 2 brands of face paint–“face paint” being a misnomer, since what we really put on children’s faces is kid-friendly makeup.  Face paint should never be done with actual paints! Our makeup is free of cancer-causing metals, unlike actual paint, all safe for skin, and cruelty-free.

Below is a full list of all of our face paint brands and their ingredients lists. If you have any additional questions, please contact our office during the booking process and we’d be happy to answer them!

At Kaleidoscope we specialize in custom combination packages–whether that’s a balloon twisting princess or a face painter who also does caricatures.

One of those options for the past 4 years has been balloon twisting stilt walkers–something no other company in the area has been able to offer.

However, after an incident in the balloon twisting line this past weekend lead to a stilt walker falling (the second time this year) we have to discontinue this product.
