The Fireman and the Sweetest Lady in the World

Oh how great it feels to be back in the swing of things. It's been a long, cold, lonely winter (see what I did there, Beatles fans?)... and while the winter season is still present, the face painting season is finally coming back to life. The main aspect of my job that I miss the most in my "slow season" is I miss the kids. I miss all the little smiling faces who want to hang out with me, and let me transform them.

Last weekend I had the pleasure of painting at the birthday party of a lovely little princess named Olivia. She had a lot of cool kids at her birthday party, a couple of familiar faces too!
So I arrive at the party, and do what I do...Greet Olivia, hang out with cool kids, and paint.

Enter The Fireman. 4 years old. Cute as all get out. And oh so loquacious. He talked and talked and talked. Well... he wasn't a fireman yet. That was up to me. Yes, he stumped me. He wanted to be PAINTED as a fireman. I struggled to come up with a design, but managed to paint somewhat of a fireman's hat on his forehead, and some flames coming up on his cheeks. Pretty cool, I think. Well, The Fireman talked his little heart out while I painted him. I listened intently as I painted through all the wiggles. He talked. I painted. I painted. He talked. And talked. And talked some more. He told me all about what he liked (general boy stuff) and what he wanted to be when he grew up (a police officer like his uncle). It didn't bother me any, I love to talk and listen to kids! When I was about to finish off his design with some black outline I said "Ok, sweetie, for this part I need you to not talk because it moves your whole face, and you have to be really still for this part, ok?" He nodded. I started the outline. He spoke. Again.
The Fireman: "Can I just say one more thing?"
Me: "..... Yes"
The Fireman: "You're the sweetest lady in the world."
My heart stopped. I held back instant tears. I blinked, then squealed, then grabbed him in a hug!
"Oh my goodness, I adore you! Can I take you home with me?!"
The Fireman: "No, you wouldn't want to do that. I do bad things sometimes.:
Me: *heart melts even more* "Honey, all kids so bad things sometimes, and some grownups do too!"
We chatted a little more as I finished up his design.
He looked at it in the mirror, scrutinized it even, and I asked... "Is it ok?"
He said "Yup! It's good!" and hopped off the chair and ran off to play with the other kids.

I feel so lucky and blessed that I can be "the sweetest lady in the world" to that little fireman. I am so blessed to hear kids say "I want to be like you when I grow up" and "Can you come over tomorrow too?" That's why I do that I do. Face painting is so much more than entertainment or a party favor. It's a connection. Art is love. Face painting is art. Face painting is love.

*note: To the parents of the fireman, if you're reading this, I would love a photo of your little man in his fireman face paint. If you're comfortable sharing, please email me at Oh and also... way to go on creating a sweet, loving little human! You must be very proud. Thank you for him. He made my day.*

Paint, Glitter and A Colorful New Year

Hello again from The Face Paint Lady!

I am hoping everyone had a spook-tastic halloween, a wonderful holiday season, and is enjoying the beginning of a new year!

Now that the chaos of the season has died down, I am looking forward to painting many smiling faces in 2014. There is a lot of fun to be had this year. I am already signed up several public events for the spring and summer, so keep checking back or follow me on facebook as the dates will be announced shortly.

I am introducing some wonderful new products and services this year.

Starting in March, I will be using cutting edge NEW face paint products that are 100% vegan, lanolin free, paraben free, and made right here in the USA, so you can feel even BETTER about what is going on your child's face.

For the hot summer parties and pool parties, we will be offering waterproof, sweatproof airbrush faces that stay all day, even in the pool! These makeups last for 12 hours but still remove easily with soap and water.

In a brief reflection of 2013... I  had my heart touched by so many wonderful children and amazing parents. I am so very thankful for you, your children, your patronage, your support. Thank you for allowing me in your home, thank you for allowing me to to share the special joy of face art with your children and family, thank you for your referrals, your recommendations, and for helping my dream job thrive. Thank you friends and fans.... thank you for YOU.

Scare A Con 2013

The Face Paint Lady would like to thank Scare A Con for having this crazy girl at the northeast's premier horror and sci-fi convention and film festival. 

If you didn't get to check it out, here is what you missed. 
A psychic fair, a film festival, a ton of REALLY friendly people, crazy and elaborate costumes, vendors and crafters bearing some of the most insane wares I have ever seen (it was hard to not go broke there!), and celebrities. Lots and lots of celebrities. If you're a horror fan you might recongnize a lot of the names at this event. 

I got the pleasure of face painting Miss Kylie Szymanski, from The Walking Dead...

...and put face makeup on Jake Busey...
