Day 108 ~ Puppets, Painting & Party
WHAT: Kids, Project 365 (2009)   |   WHEN: April 21, 2009
Saturday was another installment of a Trinity birthday party. Those that have been around the blog a while may remember the hugely popular Cinderella party on her third birthday last year.

This year's gig was held at Slappy's Puppet Playhouse in the Galleria where the kids got to enjoy a puppet show production of Charlotte's web and I got to throw some graffiti on the kiddos' faces. Yep, I was one of the designated face painters... an obvious choice based on my experience level of, let's see, none. Good thing these weren't paying clients, 'cause I'd be shelling out refunds left and right.

In the end, good times were had by all... I know I gotta good laugh outta the painting gig.





Here's one of the few relative success stories I can share from my rookie outing as a face painter. Why this girl - or better yet, her parents - trusted me to create something remotely recognizable after seeing the half Pocahontas, half Richard Simmons head band I painted on Trinity to start off the day (it was supposed to be a princess tiera) is beyond me.


Not bad, though, right? I think she turned out okay. A little rough on the edges, but she was definitely a satisfied customer.


This poor little guy just wanted a little piggy face. Unfortuantely, I gave him one that looked like it was workin' the local red light district. Man, has his mascara run amuck or what?


So, while I'm strugglin' like you wouldn't believe to muster up something that remotely resembles harmless puppies and pigs, Tina's behind me gettin' her friggin' Picasso on crankin' out Marvel comic book heroes like Spider Man. It didn't long for my customer base to fall to , oh I dunno... ZERO, after the kids got a whiff of her super hero clinic she was puttin' on.


Trinity giving mom Tina a big ol' kiss after the party. Very sweet.




Happy birthday, Trinity!
