This recommendation comes highly for Maryanne Popovic & Rhiannon Popovic of The Face Painters, Body Artists and Balloon Benders, as Children’s Entertainers and Educators, for event, after AFL Cairns has had a three-year working partnership with them.


AFL Cairns hired the organisation to provide entertainment for children at Cazalys Stadium for the Toyota AFL Premiership match of the Western Bulldogs vs Gold Coast Suns game held in Cairns in 2016. In attendance to the match was over 9,500 that attracted a crowd of various ages and demographics that the organisations catered to with ease. Maryanne and Rhiannon work patiently and can instil peace and harmony to the children through entertainment, which brings added value to the event. Entertainment of this sort has many benefits to our event; it heightens spirits, creates a fun atmosphere and creates engagement and a memorable photographic experience for all involved.
Maryanne and Rhiannon have a great work ethic, are very honest, professional, reliable and capable entertainers.


The interaction and entertainment go beyond face painting as they often incorporate the children into their work by allowing them to learn some new skills and express their creativity through ballooning or painting. The children and parents get to learn the language of ballooning while testing their fine and gross motor skills making their own balloon animals to keep. This is a great experience, when children physically see what they can accomplish in just a few minutes.


Most recently Maryanne & Rhiannon have offered help to our AFL community by donating a gift voucher and toy prizes to help assist in fundraising for local AFL Club Pyramid Power who’s building was vandalised. Maryanne is also kindly donating her time to entertain at our upcoming fundraising event, in effort to further raise funds to help the club rebuild. This voluntary involvement helps restore faith in communities like ours at a local level.


Maryanne and Rhiannon are a very talented pair of entertainers, and I have no hesitation recommending their company, The Face Painters, Body Artists & Balloon Benders. I believe they would be a fantastic addition to any event; expanding not only on a child’s social and emotional development, but also speech and language development, motor skills and their problem solving.

Glitter Tattoo Parties

 

Glitter tattoos are not so taboo.

All you need is a little faith and trust with some Pixie Fairy Dust. This magic amount of BLING is all the required for an outstanding week of standing out from your peers.

 

Our easy care Glitter Tattoos may last longer depending on how delicate the detail of the design.

 

Choose either themed Stencils to enhance your party mood or ask us about Custom Cuts, we will make something specific - like company logos - that's what we call "Market Branding" :)

"We have been coming to the [The FacePainters] for years because my children insist on having their faces painted by the best Face Painter in town. There really is nobody else that can compare to your talent. You really are amazing, and you can see that when my children's eyes light up after each face paint. Thankyou for giving us many memorable moments over the past few years. "

"Nice to catch up with you today. Your artwork was really quite something. Our staff and customers have been talking about it days after the Community open day. I think the Northern Pride players got a little more than they bargained for with their faces painted also. It was very nice having you in attendance."
