Alice ~ Kathryn, Queen of Hearts ~ Lynette, Mad Hatter ~ Grant
"Oh my gosh! Where can I begin? They were fabulous! The costumes were great and they looked like they came from a theme park! They were very nice and took charge of the party. The kids had so much fun. The only thing is I wish they sang more. I thought when they did sing they were fantastic! The bunny game they played was so much fun for the kids. And the storytelling was my son's favorite part. All the parents loved it, too and couldn't wait to get photographs with the characters and their children. This was a party they will never forget! My daughter cried after they left and talked about Alice all the way home! Before she went to bed last night she said "Can I please see Alice again tomorrow?" Happy kids means they did a great job! Also you were very accommodating and responsive to my emails and requests. It was easy booking the characters. Oh, and by the way, when the Queen of Hearts mentioned their school teacher the kids were in shock! It was great! They all sing so well, especially Alice. Thank you again!!!"
"Just wanted to let you know the party was wonderful and Ruby had the greatest time. The performers (Rachelyn- Snow Queen and Allison- Snow Princess) were absolutely fantastic and everyone had a great time. Thanks so much!"
"Communication was in a timely manner which is always appreciated and I never was worried about the performers, Alice and Mad Hatter, getting there. I don't think there is much that you can actually improve on in this area. I think that with all the jobs that you book your performers your process is very good. Costuming was spot on down to Alice's blue eyes! They stayed in character the entire time including while they were waiting to be announced in the back. They were patient and very pleasant. I found them to be genuinely pleased to be there. The autographs were very spot on as well. They sang together as well which I think everyone enjoyed that as well. They took pictures with everyone. I thought that in terms of interaction with the guests it was perfect! Everyone was surprised and truly enjoyed the actors. They were fabulous and I think looked and acted like what they should have. I wouldn't change a thing! I would like to say I hired your company because of your special discount, but honestly it was because the photo of your Alice looked just like Alice. I work for a well known company so I want to have my characters look authentic. She does! Yes, I would use your company again."
"Thank you very much for everything! Alice was a hit for the children on Friday and as well for the parents. I really loved her, I knew her already from our private party the last time . She was the Snow Queen. I was very happy to see her again! We all loved her voice and that she stayed in the character the whole time. She did the musical craft with us - wonderful ! 😊 She bonded so good with the children and it did not concern her that our boys were not so much paying attention in the beginning. Our boys warmed up a little later in the games. Just perfect! I will definitely come back to you and your lovely artists and I recommend you all the times to my friends and business partners. Thank you again!"
" Alice and the Queen of Hearts looked realistic and acted in character the entire time. The characters also interacted and responded to the children in an appropriate manner. They responded at their age-level. Her Majesty Says was fun and interactive. The storytime and tea etiquette was fantastic. I liked the way the characters included all the guests in the story. And the tea etiquette was fun for the girls. They enjoyed talking with the characters. I am sure that younger children would also love this type of party. The interaction is fun and the characters are very realistic."
"We all enjoyed your visit very much, especially our son. He will occasionally ask if you can "come over!" You were wonderfully attentive to him. I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed your performance! When you arrived, you took the time to let my son express his joy by jumping, hopping, skipping, and trying to pull up Alice's dress....LOL! I did enjoy your story as well. Very cute how you made it interactive with the kids. And, you (Alice) sing very beautifully. When I look at the pictures from various cameras that were snapping that day, you have constant, warm, and loving smiles on your faces the whole time. That pretty much says it all! You interacted so well with the kids, even the adults! My son will not forget this birthday for a very long time, if ever!"
"Everything was perfect! She looked and acted the part. She played games, sang happy birthday with the cake serving , took tons of pictures and even did autographs. I'm amazed she got so much done in 30 mins and it was enough time to do everything I wanted and spend time with each child. My favorite was her and my daughter just sitting in floor and she sang the un birthday song to her as they were in their own little world. "
"Everyone enjoyed the characters and the musical chairs, even the adults. Thank you for making my daughter's 1st birthday a memorable one. I will recommend you guys to my friends and family. Until then, I might need your services in the near future again! Thanks!"
"They were awesome! They brought so much enthusiasm to our event and it really brought our tea to life! Alice fit the part perfectly! We will definitely keep you in mind for any of our events!"
"You guys were a hit at the party. I thought you did an excellent job with the kids. I would not change a thing. Keep up the good work and I will be sure to pass on your information to all my friends and family. Looking forward to seeing you again."
"The event seemed to go off without a hitch...it was so smooth and we truly appreciate how flexible you both were. You jumped right in, interacted with the patients and families, and were absolutely appropriate. It was such a hit!...What a great day it was for our patients and families."
"You picked two perfect people to interact with the kids."
Amulet Princess ~ Anastasia
"I just wanted to let you know that our party today with the princess was fantastic! She arrived right on time and was so sweet and patient with our rowdy kiddos. She was also such a great singer and stayed in character the whole time. I'm very impressed with your company and I'm going to give Looking Glass Entertainment a shout out on Facebook to Chicago's mama tribe! Just wanted you to know that it was a great day, and she made my daughter's birthday such a memorable experience . I will definitely use your company again for future parties as I have 2 daughters! "
Apple Princess ~ Kathryn
"First, THANK YOU SO much! My little girl, and her friends, are still talking about Apple Princess! I appreciated quick response and willingness to work together. The appearance was excellent - Apple Princess was Apple Princess! From the perfect dress, to the voice, to the hair, traveling cloak, red lips....it was excellent. We enjoyed it all! We had some unexpected big sisters and neighbors arrive because the legend that Apple Princess was at our house traveled fast....and Apple Princess dealt with it seamlessly. My daughter, the birthday girl, was shy at first (in awe really!) and Apple Princess took it in stride and kept the party moving. Thank you! My other daughter is hoping for Little Mermaid this summer!"
"Apple Princess was awesome! She was in character the whole time and so TRUE to Apple Princess! If I didn't know better I would have thought she was the real person! She never broke character of anything! Even sounded like Apple Princess! "
"My wife and I have nothing but positive feedback about the experience! the performer was great -- the children absolutely loved her. She was on time and great with everyone, and stayed in character even when I was asking her about her weekend! We have used your company for a couple of years now and will continue to do so if needed!"
"That is the real deal Apple Princess! She is so pretty!! "
"You have the best Apple Princess voice I have ever heard. I worked for theme parks for years and none of the princess's voices there compare to your's. It is absolutely perfect!"
"I wanted to email you to say thank you so much for such an amazing experience for my little sweetie! She was talking about you until she passed out! She said she wanted a Apple Princess Birthday next year too! You were perfect! Everyone complimented on how exact on you were! Again big thank you for making my little girls day so extra special! I will be sure to pass you on to all our friends & family! You were amazing and did your job perfectly! I am so glad we booked you! I will keep you in mind for next year all depending on what theme she pick! "
"Apple Princess was just perfect and my daughter LOVED her so much! It was so magical & special! I couldn't have asked for a better day!"
"You were awesome! So magical. Your interaction with the children made me and the other mom's tear up several times. It was priceless to see the look on her face. Here are a few of the things that my daughter said during your visit: "I can tell she is really from the theme park" "My wish really did come true!" and "Mommy, I'm sooo happy". I could tell that she was mesmerized by you. LOVED the song and the gems too! I've been telling everyone about you. Those girls were in awe. The moms are all still talking about it."
"It was like I had a little bit of magic in my living room. You were wonderful!"
"The authentic appearance of the character was shocking. Apple Princess looked so real that people were amazed by how she looked and dressed. I think everybody, including me, had less expectations, that's why it was a very nice surprise to see the character looking that good and all the performing done by her. Like I mentioned to you , we have to adjust to the people with the program, and I believe that you did wonderful job with that. The story and dance was enough to get those kids busy and entertained. Obviously, one of the things people were most happy with is that everybody had a chance to take a picture with the character. I'm very pleased with everything. Can't wait for another show."
"It was very nice to meet you today. I think the appearance turned out great and what you did was amazing. Thank you again for a wonderful show."
"We all had a great time especially our daughter- she's still talking about it! We were very happy with everything....The adults thought you really fit the part well. We liked how authentic the costume was and how well you related to the kids."
"I have never seen anyone act so much like Apple Princess, she was awesome!! My little girl was amazed when she saw Apple Princess. Apple Princess gave her a hug and she talked about seeing her all day!"
Apple Princess ~ Jane
"We had a great time at the party. My daughter was very surprised and the Apple Princess was terrific.The process was very easy. You followed through with what you said you were going to do. I appreciated the 10 minute heads up call that the princess would be arriving soon. The princess looked great. Her voice was fantastic and all the adults were impressed that she was able to maintain that voice the whole time. That princess's voice is not an easy one. She did a great job getting the children to interact. Some were hesitant at first and shy, and she just rolled with it and they warmed up pretty quickly. I chose Looking Glass due to the online ratings and the pricing was competitive with others. Not the cheapest, but not overly expensive either. I would definitely choose Looking Glass again and recommend to friends."
"I wanted to let you know that everything was wonderful today! My daughter and her friends had such a great time. Everything highly exceeded our expectations and I definitely will use you guys again in the future."
Beauty ~ Kathryn
"Let me start off by saying, our Beauty was absolutely AMAZING!! I cannot believe how perfect her performance was. We were so blown away by her performance. When I envisioned Beauty telling the girls a story, it was nothing compared to what we had. Our performer had a beautiful voice and told the complete story in such an interactive way. We had just visited a theme park a year ago, and I have to say your Beauty was even better than the one we met in the theme park! Later than evening our daughter said "I wonder how Beauty is doing, do you think she is on the air-o-plane?" she truly truly believes she met Beauty and that magic in her eyes is priceless. She also asked us when her birthday is again so she can invite her back! Our daughter also loved the picture of Beauty with all the gifts she gave her on your Facebook page. It makes our heart so happy that she had such a wonderful experience. When Beauty started dancing with our daughter, it brought my mother and aunt to tears. We also appreciated how special our performer made our daughter feel during the whole experience. We appreciated that the company asked us details about our daughter prior to the event, and incorporated everything and more that we asked. Our performer was perfect. She look just like the princess we had met in theme park her dress and hair were beautiful, wouldn't change a thing! I was so touched that at the end of the party, she took the time to go with our daughter to look at all our themed decorations. I knew we were running close to time but she never rushed my daughter at all. She even took the time to let her make her a bracelet before she left. We choose Looking Glass because of their performers. Looking through photos they were the best looking princesses, and truly looked like the ones we met in the theme park. Their costumes were also beautifully detailed and again resembled so closely to what we had experienced in the theme park. We can't wait to book another party with you and will HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend you to friends and family. Thank you, thank you, thank you again!
"The costume was perfect, I would compare it to the same quality as well known companies! Nothing to improve. Beauty herself was amazing, she practically looked just like her down to her voice. Beauty was exactly what I had hoped for and more. I LOVED how in her story telling she also sang! She was also perfect with the children, even when she had a bunch of little girls wanting to touch her dress and her gloves, she was very patient! I also loved that each little girl had her own personalized item from Beauty. I also loved that my birthday girls received an item at the end and I LOVED the little princess pledge that Beauty had them do at the end. Very well done! I have been able to refer you to a couple of my clients and I am so happy that I finally got to experience "Looking Glass Friends Entertainment" for myself and my family. I cannot wait to use your services again and again! Really, it was truly magical for all of the little girls and it warmed my heart to see the wonder in their eyes. Great job !"
"I have never, ever worked with such a professional party/entertainment company in my life! I have thrown a LOT of very detail-oriented, extravagant parties in my time. I am thoroughly impressed with your business in general. Working with you was a complete pleasure from start to finish. The character was like no other I have ever experienced. I've hired and have witnessed a lot of other princesses in my time. You look completely real-life and I appreciate that you always stay in character. The most important part was you were my daughter's most favorite and memorable part of her party. I teared up watching you dance with her while singing one of her favorite songs. It was priceless! On top of it all, your prices are extremely reasonable and affordable. The party was already very expensive to begin with, but my husband didn't complain when I added Belle at the last minute and I told him the price. I couldn't have been happier. I am constantly thinking about how and why I can incorporate another princess into the next party I throw, just to have you back! Thank you, thank you, thank you all around! You are absolutely the best, and I have been and will continue to promote your business to anyone who wants to listen! If you ever need me to refer you, etc. just let me know, and I'll be so happy to!"
"I just want you to know that I have been to other parties were people have hired princesses. Your Beauty is the best I have ever seen...she was amazing and everyone at the party commented on how wonderful she was. I couldn't have asked for a better princess and will always recommend you!"
"Thank you, Beauty, for making my daughter's birthday party so special. I cannot imagine ever using another entertainment company for princesses - ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Even the adults were completely blown away. Thanks again!"
"I can not thank you enough - Beauty, you did a wonderful job, let me tell you everyone is still talking about what a wonderful job you did today. Thank you!!!!"
" There was nothing to improve. All was great! We were really impressed and the princess was very prepared."
Braided Princess~ Kathryn
"I LOVED YOUR PERFORMANCE!!! And so did everyone else at my great niece’s party because it was the talk of the afternoon. Everyone asked how I learned about you, and so I thanked my friend this morning for sharing her experience with Beauty with us so that I could contact you. I wanted to share this review from my niece (the birthday girl's mom): "Wow. I still can't believe what you did for my little girl...and I want to tell you what she did when I tucked her in..it was a replay with her brother...I asked her what her favorite part of the day was. Without any hesitation, she says Braided Princess!!!!! Then, the best part, she whispers, mom did you see her hair? And she gave us gifts...she will never forget this. I can't thank you enough. I almost cried when I saw her too! ! Love you" How’s that for a review! You were such a hit Christine! I’m going to post this morning on our business intranet bulletin board, and share your business cards with friends who have small children. I hope it brings you much business. It was amazing how easy the process was, especially with only one week before my scheduled event. I was thrilled to know that you were available. No improvement necessary, you were on top of it immediately. Your appearance was perfect, from the dress to your hair to your character. You couldn’t have been more believable. No improvement necessary here either! I loved how it didn’t matter to you that the older boys didn’t care to interact with you and you just poured your attention on the 3 kids that were on the blanket with the mom. You were totally into them, and you listened to them with such kindness. Your performance was perfect, and the interaction between you and the girls during the dancing was just lovely to watch. You made them both feel so very special. I know that my great niece will never lose her memories of that afternoon. And I think I won the best aunt award too! I thank you again for your wonderful performance, and I wish you much continued success in your business. I know now what a positive and heart-warming experience you bring to these parties, and I can’t imagine your business ever growing old. Thank you again."
'Thank you for the follow up. Kathryn was amazing as the braided princess! We loved her and she was awesome, beautiful, interactive, flexible with out guests (especially when one of the little girls who "hated princesses" went off running she switched gears and got her interested and involved). I loved the gifts at the end--everything was amazing! Even her mannerisms were like the character! I really appreciated the small details that you took into consideration and forwarded to the performer. For instance, she new the birthday girl's name and her sisters' names. Also, picking up the invitation and the gift from the door. I really liked how she incorporated cues from the parent. I also liked how you asked questions about if we ever had other princesses at our parties so that the character knows if they need to incorporate that as well. Her appearance was amazing--costume and hair were beautiful. I liked her basket of goodies that she handed out to the kids. The flower barrettes were awesome for the girls and I really appreciated the lizards for the boys! Kathryn really stayed in character and spoke like the princess, sang beautifully and even had mannerisms similar to the character especially in the pictures. She was amazing amazing amazing! She even walked outside in just her costume (no coat) and parked far from the house to make it more realistic--how cool! Like I mentioned, one of the little girls ran off because she hated princesses and Kathryn was quick to try to include her in the fun and changed her plan from royalty training to story time which got the attention of the little girl. She also sang which was very pretty but I realized the girls didn't know any of the songs but they were still intrigued. I liked that she took time to take lots of photos and let the girls touch her hair and dress. From the images on your sites and reviews the actresses look so real and seem to be really into their character. For me that was important because we have been to theme parks where the characters are really well versed about their movies (even sequels) and really have an answer to all kids questions and make you believe that they are truly the character. I really wanted to keep that image and belief alive in my children and the guests so that they feel the magic at their party like you feel the magic at theme parks. It was very important to me and Kathryn really made the kids believe (even if some questioned it!). I would definitely recommend your company again. Very easy to work with, open to details and suggestions, you (Christine) were very polite, professional and quick to respond. Everything was made very easy and fun. It was just wonderful I cannot say enough! Thank you for making my daughter's party so magical and memorable!
"Everything was truly great! From the first moment I contacted the agency, I received immediate responses and knew that the attention from the get- go was a sign of good quality service. And it was! The princess was prompt, engaging, warm and friendly and interacted so beautifully and professionally with all the kiddos. The costume was gorgeous, the attention to detail. I would and plan to use the services again. Thank you for everything! "
"We had a great experience with the Braided Princess at our party. She was early to the event, which was perfect, and the entire time went smoothly. She was well-prepared, looked great (just as she should look) and entertained the kids the whole time. Even though I only requested that she sing one song, she sang several, and told the her story, during any downtime. This was great, as it probably would have been awkward had she just stood there the whole time. She also gave each girl a gift, a special gift for my daughter and an autograph to each girl. None of this was requested by me, but definitely appreciated and a nice touch. At the end, she posed for pictures with each girl, and they loved it. Overall, it was a wonderful experience, and she made my daughter and her friends very happy. I would not change a thing! Thank you so much!"
"You were quick to respond and stay in contact with me. She was very “real” and mesmerized the children with her singing (I have never ever seen over 30 kids under 5 be so engaged). The kids were drawn to her the minute she stepped through the door."
"Thanks again for everything today! It was above and beyond my expectation. Everyone was thrilled and it was an exceptional Braided Princess."
"What a special day- thanks so much! The planning process was easy. All went very well. Braided Princess was great. She really looked and dressed the part. Stayed in character the whole time. The kids just loved her and she was great with taking pictures etc. "
"I cannot think of ANYTHING to improve our experience. It was absolutely perfect and everything I hoped it would be. My daughter LOVED having Braided Princess and the look on her face was priceless. There is not a thing that I would change! Communication with the whole event planning was quick and everything was explained thoroughly. Braided Princess's voice was AMAZING and the interaction with the children was fabulous. You were great going from place to place and letting the kids drag you around. Everyone who attended had nothing but great things to say. Thank You so much!!""
"She was wonderful! My daughter and her friends had a fabulous time with her. They loved dancing and singing with her and her story. Her voice was amazing, sounded just like the movie! My daughter asked me that morning how Braided Princess would be getting to our house, and her walking up the driveway and parking down the street was perfect. They watched her walk away when she left and waved from the doorway till she disappeared. That was priceless! After her story was done I was worried the kids would lose interest, but she kept them interested for the whole hour. Thanks for a great experience!"
"The girls, and I had a wonderful time!!!!! Braided Princess looked perfect and was sweet as pie!!! The smile never left Braided Princess's or the girl's faces. She was spectacular. I can't say enough about how cute, sweet, and perfect Braided Princess was!!!!!!!! Braided Princess was one of the sweetest, most amazing girls I have ever met. You made my daughter's birthday magical!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My daughter loved every minute or it!!!!!!! The dancing, singing, and every thing about Braided Princess was perfect. So happy I found your company. Thanks again!!"
"I would like to say thank you for giving my daughter the best day ever. Braided Princess was perfect , even the adult guest were amazed how exactly she sounded like the character. The kids enjoyed it and really thought Braided Princess came over the house.
I think the 30 minute session was great, the kids enjoyed the interaction they had with Braided Princess . My daughter liked the fact that she danced with Braided Princess. I would like to say it was wonderful, the birthday girl and the guests (children and parents) were very happy and excited with the whole entertainment. I highly recommend it to other parents who would like to make their childs day special . Thank you for coming."
Braided Princess did an amazing job. The girls were mesmerized by her. The minute she walked through our door she was in character. She was very pleasant, very patient, sang beautifully and the girls had an absolute blast. I am definitely going to recommend your website and services to other people. Thank you for making my daughter's birthday so special. "
"We want to send our deepest thank you for Braided Princess on my daughter's 1st B-day. It was truly the highlight of our celebration! All of the children were in complete awe of her, they didn't stop talking about how excited they were that she was able to find out where the party was. It was so adorable to listen to them talk about how pretty she looked & they really loved the singing & stories. My poor little daughter was so tired from the day, but I could tell she was shocked to see Braided Princess at her house! She got 3 new Braided Princess dolls with her presents & she has been playing with them nonstop, giving them kisses & hugs. Everything was absolutely perfect from beginning to end, honestly, at least 10 people wanted the name of your website, they were so impressed! My niece & daughter watch the movie whenever they're together & always tell us how exciting it would be to meet her. Braided Princess made all the kids so happy! Thanks again for making my daughter's 1st B-day so very special! "
"First, I just want to Thank Braided Princess so much! She truly made our event special. It was definitely a birthday my daughter will remember for a long time! I was absolutely amazed at how quickly the time went by! The hour just flew by. Everybody seemed so impressed by Braided Princess's appearance & personality. She even had neighbors running down the street to get a hug! Everything about her visit was perfect & priceless! We look forward to planning another event with Looking Glass Friends Entertainment! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you so much! From the moment Braided Princess walked in, she knew who it was! Looking Glass Friends Entertainment has really set the bar high for fantasy performers! I don't think we'll go anywhere else for special character visits! Our Braided Princess was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Her costume was amazing. My 3 year old bday girl knew right away who she was. Braided Princess's personality was perfectly sweet. And she was very patient in getting the birthday girl out of her shell. Also, her hair was fantastic. I've never seen such beautiful hair. And the performer moved so naturally with it. Seemed as if she's had it all her life. I thought everything was fantastic.
Braided Princess was just so kind! And very sweet to all the girls. Even to my son, who was "tired of silly princesses." But he wasn't too tired to watch the movie after everyone left. :) I felt like Braided Princess really tried to make all the guests feel special, especially our daughter. Braided Princess was even sweet to our crazy neighbors! Lol"
"You were FANTASTIC with the children and we appreciate you being understanding that they are young and a little goofy at times. Our daughter absolutely loved seeing Braided Princess and my husband and I got teary eyed seeing how excited she was. She is normally a shy child but seeing her light up made it all worth it. You did a phenomenal job staying in character and your appearance was perfect! The hair, dress, etc was lovely and we were impressed with your singing as well :) No need to improve, everything was wonderful!! You were flexible and professional and you just went with the flow when the little ones got giggly. Thank you for your patience as well with the cupcakes and pictures. We loved everything and hope to hire you again in the future for our other daughter's birthday party. I know our guests were also impressed with your professionalism and appearance so I'm glad you distributed your information to them as well. I am an elementary school teacher and you can bet I will spread the word about you!"
"Very easy process. All forms were easy clear and precise. Character was amazing. She corralled the girls and was able to hold their attention the entire time. The story was great and the singing was awesome. I choose looking glass because the other companies didn't have this character and they were more costly. I have recommended looking glass to the other moms and I would definitely reuse looking glass.
"I just wanted to say that you are amazing!! You make the perfect Braided Princess, you were in character from the moment you came in--I think the girls were in shock at first! My daughter tells everyone who will listen how the "real" Braided Princess came to her birthday party. I had other parents asking for your info from the time you started, and were still going on about "the best birthday party" they've ever been to as they left. You have a beautiful voice-my husband didn't realize you were actually singing at first!! Thank you so much for making my daughter's birthday so special. I really can't tell you how impressed I've been with everything, from your professionalism and attention to detail planning the appearance to the appearance itself. Everything was incredible."
"I'm still on cloud 9 after our visit with Braided Princess last night!!! And so is my daughter, she told me this morning that she dreamed of Braided Princess all night!!! And we just finished up watching the movie!! Everyone had a great time! The girls were all so excited. I have to say that I set high expectations for our visit, and honestly, you blew me out of the water!!! Way more than I even thought!!!! You walked in, to the time you left you were Braided Princess!! Your appearance was spot on, and I loved that from the time you walked in, to the time you left you were Braided Princess!! Your interaction with the girls was amazing!! Some of the questions were out in left field, and you responded so quickly! I absolutely loved the fact that you ask about the child's interests and activities, giving parents the option to inform you on things that you include in your performance. The two girls that you wished happy birthdays to were so surprised that you "knew" their birthdays were coming up. And my daughter, with the theme park pen....PERFECT!!! I'm one happy camper, and so is my my daughter!! And she is the reason I did this!!! Each and everyone of our guests have been an important part of our lives in one way or another, and this was an experience that I'm so happy was available for me to share!!! Thank you for making it all possible!! And I'm sure you'll be hearing from me in the future!!! "
"The costuming and makeup was done well. She looked great and I appreciate the great singing voice and storytelling. She was in character the whole time and truly engaged the kids. I appreciated the autographs for everyone and the favors she handed out the kids and taking the time to pose for pics. I thought she did a wonderful job for the half hour she was there. My daughter is still talking about Braided Princess and will always remember this party, I'm sure!"
"The kids at the party truly were mesmerized by Braided Princess. She was very captivating and held the kids attention for the entire time she was with them. We enjoyed her storytelling, singing and games. She was very pleasant and nice to the kids. The appearance was fantastic! We enjoyed her pace, slow enough for the kids. Favors/birthday girl gifts were great. The kids asked a lot of questions after story time and we were glad she had the patience to answer them all! The meet and greet took a little longer than expected but I think a lot of the kids wanted individual pictures with her. Overall, very pleased with the visit. Thank you!"
"Just wanted to say thank you for entertaining the kids this weekend! They loved it! My daughter is still talking about Braided Princess!"
"You really took the time to know what my daughter likes! You also really listened from the beginning to exactly what we wanted. The performance was great and you stayed in character the whole time which was awesome!!! Very real like! We liked when you entertained the children the whole time. And you really listened to what my daughter wanted to do before and after. All the kids enjoyed it. The boys and girls had a great time. Thank you again. They all had a blast!"
"Thank you for coming to our facility last week I know it was difficult with the first session with our little ones, but I thank you for your patience. You did a beautiful job!! One of the things that stood out the most was the great spirit you brought from the moment you walked through our doors. Braided Princess's attire was beautiful from her hair to her shoes, very professional. Her interaction with the guests was fabulous! We enjoyed Braided Princess walking around the entire stage so that all children could see her during her story time. We really enjoyed the dancing time where all the friends were able to get out of their seats and take part. Thanks again for coming to visit us!!!!!"
"Thank you so much for the beautiful performances you put on for our child care. You are such a talented actress! Thank you for bringing such a happy spirit as well. We would love to have you next year!"
"We were so surprised by Braided Princess's authentic appearance! Before seeing you I was worried that my child would instantly know someone who wasn't the "real" Braided Princess. You made her believe and to her you ARE the real Braided Princess!"
"Thank you for being the favorite part of my daughter's day! I was happy how things worked out. The girls were very excited about your visit and now you have several more flowers to decorate your hair :) In fact she's asking when she can see Braided Princess again! Thanks again for a wonderful experience and I will definitely recommend you in the future. Cheers!"
"We very much enjoyed our visit from Braided Princess. We thought she was great and my daughters and her friends were just beside themselves!! Thank you for helping us create a wonderful memory. I won’t hesitate to refer your company to friends/family. I thought the booking/planning process was very streamlined and thorough. Braided Princess had a sweet demeanor and a great singing voice. The kids really loved the sing-along and dancing. Her costume/wig were GREAT! I was impressed w/ the high quality."
Braided Princess ~ Allison
"I cannot say enough about how positive an experience this was, not only for our daughter, but for us and everybody at the party as well. I believe it was Allison who came to our house and she was remarkable to entire time. She was engaging and easily captured the magic of the moment. Not only were the kids just in a trance, so were the adults too as we all were just captivated by the story telling and acting. She really made our daughters fantasy come true. As for the princess herself, her acting and voice are amazing. She sang two songs, presented a gift, took photos, taught the kids how to be a princess and sang Happy Birthday. She just expertly interacted with the kids, never breaking character once. There isn't one thing that I can think of for her or you guys to improve upon. The whole experience, from the ease of reserving a character to the character's arrival and the grace with how she exited, it left nobody with any regrets, expect for the obvious fact nobody wanted it to end. We immediately were telling ourselves how it was totally worth doing this. We met Looking Glass Friends Entertainment at a prior Princess Party event at the Darien Park District. That is where I got your contact info. After seeing how well the princesses interacted with the children at that party, we knew we had to do something similar for our daughter's birthday party later that year. With the experience with the characters at that event, posing for pictures and dancing, it didn't even cross our minds to look at other performing groups or shop around. We wanted Looking Glass Friends Entertainment. And another note about Allison, I am pretty sure that at the Darien Park District event, she was the Apple Princess character. At that event, she and our daughter seemed to create an instant bond as she kept going to visit her character. So when we recognized her when she came to our house for the birthday party, we knew we were in for a great experience. I think we definitely will be doing this again for future parties. Thank you again and please, a special thank you to Allison for making our daughter's birthday party extraordinary!"
"Thank you for following up! My daughter literally had "the best day ever" when the Braided Princess arrived to her party. My husband and I had never seen her so excited, we were nearly brought to tears just watching her reaction. Everyone commented on how wonderful she was! Honestly I wouldn't have changed a thing, everything was perfect, from her appearance to the singing, story telling, dancing and princess training, I was so impressed. I didn't worry about her not showing up because of the email interaction I received from the moment I inquired about hiring her. I appreciated the attention to detail and everything that I requested was followed through. I wasn't expecting her to bring little gifts for the kids, that was such a pleasant surprise! She absolutely loved her little gift and has been wearing it in the house ever since. The kids loved wearing their gifts and they all were so excited to look just like the princess and take a picture. I found this company when searching online and decided on it because of price and reviews. I liked that you weren't over priced, like some of the other companies I had contacted, and all the reviews were positive so that made me more confident when I booked. I'm so glad that everything worked out because I will definitely use you again for future parties, as I have 3 girls :) and refer to family and friends. Thank you so much for making her day so special! I will be sure to tag photos/video on facebook."
"I just wanted to start off by saying how absolutely perfect this experience was! From the moment we contacted your company we were extremely happy and pleased with the process. I was contacted very promptly upon my initial request and everything was very thorough. And whenever I reached out with questions I always received an answer back very quickly. You were so organized and made sure we got exactly what we wanted. I honestly don't think the process could have been any better when booking. As for the performer I was extremely satisfied with her performance. She was PERFECT! She not only looked liked the Braided Princess in appearance, her costume was spot on. She was so friendly and sweet with my girls and guests. My girls are experts and know the movie inside out and she knew her stuff! Her sing-a-long portion had my guests all amazed as she had a terrific voice. I would give her performance an A+++++. As for the activities we loved the sing-a-long. The kids were singing and just in awe of her. All of my guests commented on how wonderful of a job she did. Princess training was so cute and the girls really enjoyed participating. What I liked most about the entire experience was how easy everything was from start to finish. I was worried because this was my first time ever hiring any kind of entertainer so I really didn't know what to expect or who would be walking through the door. But I must say your company is fantastic! It couldn't have gone more smoothly. When I originally decided to hire a Princess for my party I had contacted yourself and one other company. And right from the start I knew you were the right choice. You responded to my request very quickly where the other company took 3 days to call me back!!! Which I thought was unacceptable. Even before that I was leaning towards your company because I loved how you had your performers pics and bios online. So I can see the types of performers that could come to the event. I have been to other parties and some of the princess have been very sub par. Where the girl looked nothing like the princess she was dressed up to be or their costume was a disaster. Having all those pics online put my mind at ease that the girl was going to look the part. I would use your company again in a heartbeat. And I will absolutely be recommending you to all my friends and family. Please thank our performer again for us as she truly did a fantastic job. She made my daughters party so magical. I can't sing my praises about her enough! Thank you all!"
"Thank you so much. Our princess was amazing!! She was beautiful and she had the girls totally entertained. My husband's friend already asked where we found it! The braided princess was great and her voice was amazing. My 10 year old son was so impressed too, he could not believe that she was so talented. The girls said they could not believe that a princess came to their party. She was a real hit.
THANK YOU so much! Every thing was easy and so well done. Again thank you!"
"Once again your company has made another Birthday unforgettable for my daughter. This is the 2nd year we have used you & I couldn't be happier with the performer, performance, & professionalism that she had. Dealing with you from the start has been a joy & I would absolutely recommend your company to my family & friends. Thank you again so much for everything."
"EVERYTHING IN THE BOOKING PROCESS WAS VERY SMOOTH! THE CHARACTER APPEARANCE WAS FANTASTIC! ALL THE LITTLE GIRLS THOUGHT AND BELIEVED SHE WAS THE REAL PRINCESS! EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT, SHE DID SUCH A GREAT JOB! HONESTLY I CAN'T THINK OF ANYTHING TO CHANGE. YOUR CHARACTERS LOOK AND ACT REAL FROM BEGINNING TO END! STRAIGHT OUT OF THE MOVIES! BOTH LOOKING GLASS EXPERIENCES WERE FANTASTIC. WE WERE AT A SNOW QUEEN PARTY AND LOVED IT AND BOOKED THE BRAIDED PRINCESS. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOUR COMPANY! THANKS!"
"Everything went smooth. The costume was just like at a theme park. The girls loved her. They thought it was really her. No change at all. She sang beautifully. Our favorite songs. She hugged the girls, talked. Took pictures. It was perfect. The characters look at act like the ones in real thing. They can sing!! And they are the character. I would use you guys again, At the party parents asked for your information."
Captain Quigley the Pirate ~ Grant
"We very much enjoyed Captain Quigley. My kids are still talking about him! We booked Pirate Quigley pretty much at the last minute. The whole process was easy and professional. All of my emails were responded to quickly and I was provided with all the information I needed upfront to know what to expect from our first character experience at a party. I also liked that everything was able to be completed through email and online payment! Pirate Quigley was fantastic. We liked that he was a friendly looking pirate for our younger guests. His costume did not look cheap, but of good quality. His ring and necklace were a big hit, as well as the swords! One adult even commented on how authentic his boots looked! I personally loved his hat! Pirate Quigley stayed in character and rolled with questions and comments smoothly and appropriately. He was also very funny! The adults and kids liked his clean jokes and responses!! He did a nice job keeping the kids entertained. The two years olds, of course, did not engage much, but some watched in awe. The 4 year olds to 10 year olds had a blast; their smiles never ending through the performance. I was amazed at how quickly the hour went by. It was the right amount of time to hold attention, and Pirate Quigley did an amazing job balancing the hour with activities and pictures. He had to compete with a pirate ship bounce house and was able to still keep attention and the kids coming back for more. He even incorporated his ship (bounce house) into it! The whole experience was really cool and one that our guests will remember. There is not anything that I feel needs improved on. Pirate Quigley knew how to go with the flow and engage the guests. We could tell that he really enjoyed what he was doing, which made his performance even better! Yes, we would choose to use your company again and would recommend your company as well. We went with Looking Glass Friends for four reasons. One, the price was right! Compared to other companies, you were affordable for us. Two, you were located much closer than companies out of Chicago, which made it convenient since there were no added travel costs. Third, your pirate was authentic to the times, but also very friendly looking! We felt the Johnny Depp type pirate would be too scary for the younger children. Fourth, we were able to read comments/reviews on Pirate Quigley on your website. I believe, your princesses were at an event we attended at the Avalon Manor. This was a totally different experience as a pirate is far from a princess. :) The princesses were beautiful and my girls enjoyed hearing them sing. All your characters are professional, clean cut, and stay in character the entire time!"
"It was good. I like the personal questions regarding the birthday girl because it made the day more custom and special. He also really complimented her throughout the party, her boots, outfit, etc., which was so sweet for a birthday girl. He was very nice and SUPER patient. The boys, and an unexpected younger brother of another guest, were much more physical than expected during the sword fight training (which was great) and Captain Quigley was such a trooper, looked great and had an awesome personality and sense of humor. I knew that my daughter would be well behaved, but it's tough to anticipate how other children interact. The trunk with the gift especially for her was just magical. SHE LOVED THAT! The treasures and diamonds were an awesome touch.We were super pleased with Captain Quigley and what he brought to the party. He, without a doubt, was the reason the party was so special and memorable. We will be using Looking Glass again, no doubt.
"I liked that I was able to do everything electronically, including payment. His costume was very realistic, and he showed up in character and remained in character the entire time. He did a great job with the children and even got the adults involved. The birthday boy loved it! I would definitely recommend your company!"
Glass Slipper Princess~ Kathryn ~ and Fairy Godmother ~Lynette
"You were very prompt in replying to all of my inquires, that was much appreciated and made it easy on me while I was party-planning. The performer couldn't have been better! Physical appearance was absolutely on spot, costume was perfect and very clean (my mother-in-law actually commented on how clean her dress was!), the performer was in character the whole entire time, she honestly couldn't have been more perfect! Even all of the adults at the party thought she was the real Glass Slipper Princess! She just did such a wonderful job, I honestly don't think that it could have been more perfect. The story telling was so wonderful, she made my daughter feel like a special little princess. Even her singing was amazing, we were all expecting her to lip sync and she just had the most perfect princess singing voice! We were all so impressed! My expectations were truly exceeded. At one point my sister said that her cheeks hurt from smiling so much watching the princess interact with the kids and it was true... everyone in attendance young and old had a smile on their face the whole entire time the princess was there! I chose your company based on the reviews. Also, your performers looked more "real" than the ones featured on on your competitors websites. I also liked that all of your performers had excellent credentials in terms of education/experience when it comes to acting/theater, etc. Even though you were priced a little higher than the competition, I actually liked that because it made me feel like I was getting the best-of-the-best and wasn't going to get a "cheesy" princess to come to my daughter's birthday party. YES, I would absolutely choose to work with your company again and YES I will absolutely recommend you company to family/friends. We saw the Snow Queen and Snow Princess at Briar Ridge CC last year (I'm pretty sure they were through your company) and they did an amazing job. The two events were so different that it's hard to compare though, both were excellent for each respective environment/event. Thank you so much for everything and please send a special thank you to the performer, she was truly amazing and made my daughter feel so special! "
"We had a wonderful experience with Glass Slipper Princess today at our daughter's birthday party. Even though the birthday girl had a bit of "stage fright" today, she has been talking about the "real" Princess all evening! She made all of the children at the party feel special and she did an amazing job holding their interest! Beautiful voice and great storytelling. It was fantastic and I will be recommending this to all of our friends!"
"The party on was perfect! Both Slipper Princess and the Fairy Godmother were wonderful. All the kids had a blast and the parents felt as if the Princess left a theme park just to come to this party. The owner was very accommodating. She pulled through and sent us both the fairy godmother and the princess I've used Looking Glass Friends before and will use them again and again. Thank you again for a wonderful party!
"The birthday party was GREAT! The princess was a BIG hit! I would highly recommend the Glass Slipper Princess (and your company) to family and friends. She did a great job greeting the birthday girl and other guests at the party. She arrived on time, she was perfectly dressed in costume, she presented herself well, she spoke like a true princess, and she interacted with everyone, including children and parents. We saw her at Kids Town over the summer and we were hoping to get the same gal and WE DID! I was so happy and she did a great job with pictures and story telling. We have 2 girls, so we will definitely be booking in the future!"
"I APPRECIATED THAT YOU WERE INTERESTED IN MY DAUGHTER, HER INTERESTS, LIKES, ACTIVITIES, ETC. SO THAT SLIPPER PRINCESS COULD INCORPORATE PERSONAL MATTERS INTO HER PERFORMANCE. I HEARD HER TALK TO MY DAUGHTER ABOUT A FEW OF THE THINGS THAT I SENT TO YOU, SO THAT MADE ME REALLY HAPPY. THE BOOKING PROCESS WAS EASY AND THE PRICING IS GREAT. THE PRINCESS WAS FULLY PREPARED - SHE DID NOT SEEM AT ALL FLUSTERED BY CHANGE IN PLANS. SHE WAS BEAUTIFUL. HER COSTUME WAS PERFECT AND MY DAUGHTER WAS COMPLETELY ENTHRALLED. I CAN'T THINK OF HOW YOU WOULD IMPROVE THE PRINCESS AT ALL! SHE INTERACTED WONDERFULLY WITH THE KIDS. SHE TOLD HER STORY, SANG A SONG AND DANCED WITH THEM. THEY WERE THRILLED AND COMPLETELY ENCHANTED. HONESTLY I COULD NOT SEE / HEAR A LOT OF IT BECAUSE THE KIDS DIDN'T LET ANY OF THE ADULTS GET TOO CLOSE. EVERYTHING REALLY WAS PERFECT. THANK YOU AGAIN FOR HELPING US MAKE MY DAUGHTER'S 4TH BIRTHDAY ONE SHE WILL NEVER FORGET!"
"We had a wonderful experience with your company. Booking Slipper Princess went well and we were thankful we were able to find a date that she was available. Responses were timely and contained all of the needed information. She was fantastic. We could not have imagined a better time with her. She was able to manage all of the children during the activities with little help from the other adults, which was amazing. She was flexible and had enough activities to keep the children engaged. We would highly recommend your company to all of our friends and family and hope to have another event with you!"
"Everything was great, as usual, I hope to see you again in the fall for another party! Very smooth, very professional. Everything was perfect. Kids all loved Slipper Princess. I would use you again in a heartbeat, and I hope to this fall. I don’t know of any other companies, but I don’t need to. "
"We had a great time with the princess! She was incredibly friendly and included all the little girls at the party while paying close attention to the birthday girl. She looked exactly like the original and she had a great voice. She really made the party fun!!! This is our third time using Looking Glass Friends and we are always very pleased with the professionalism and acting of the characters!"
"Our experience was wonderful -The princess was just perfect. She entertained the girls the entire hour, kept their full attention with her games and music and wow can she sing!! It was awesome- the girls were in awe. I can't say anything negative- her costume was beautiful and her demeanor was right on. Her timing was perfect. I would recommend you guys to anyone. Thank you for a perfect experience!"
"Thank you for the follow up email. My daughter and the other children at the party had a wonderful time with Slipper Princess. She was very professional and played the role perfectly. We found the entire process of booking the entertainment very easy. The communication with the company prior to the event gave us confidence that there would not be any problems on the day of the event. The entertainer that came as Slipper Princess did a wonderful job. She was very attentive and was able to keep the attention of four year old girls for an hour and a half, which was amazing in itself. The girls at the party enjoyed the interaction with Slipper Princess and enjoyed participating in the activities that she suggested. We definitely plan on using Looking Glass Entertainment in the future and would recommend the company to others. Thank you to you and your staff for making my daughter's Birthday memorable and magical. "
"I just wanted to give you a huge thank you to Slipper Princess and fairy godmother (Lynette). You made my daughter's birthday dreams come true!! She hasn't stopped talking about you since you left! You were beyond professional and definitely exceeded our expectations! I am sorry it was a little crazy we had more family come than expected and all the moms wanted to stay to see you both:) My daughter had a birthday that she will remember thanks to you both! The experience for her was absolutely priceless and the look on her face when she opened the door. I will definitely spread the word about your company!"
"I just wanted to send you a note to tell how wonderful our experience was with Slipper Princess. She was amazing in every way! She arrived on time, looked beautiful, acted and sang the part so perfectly that we all thought she should work for a theme park. My daughter's 3 year old birthday was such a positive experience and the awe and admiration on her face seeing Slipper Princess was priceless. Please pass along a huge thank you to her and just know that whoever is in need of a character party, I will surely be recommending your company."
"The planning process was very smooth and easy. I was blown away by her appearance. The dress, hair, makeup, all amazing. I truly was impressed. And the voice! Just like a princess! I was curious how an hour was going to be filled, but well done. Smooth, effortless. Perfect. We truly were amazed and appreciated you helping to give our daughter a wonderful birthday.
"You (Slipper Princess- Kathryn and Fairy Godmother- Lynette) were both wonderful! Everyone thought you were amazing, the mothers couldn't stop talking about the quality of your performances. You both stayed in character perfectly, and were very engaged with the children. The event planning went very well. You kept me informed about everything. You were also able to get my daughter a birthday video on short notice, announcing the arrival of her princess gown. Which might I add, she loved. She was sooo surprised that Slipper Princess sent her a special birthday video. She hasn't stopped talking about her party yet! I love how the Fairy Godmother talked about manners. my daughter has been even more polite, she had pretty good manners to begin with. But now is saying "May I" and "No, thank you". Very cute! You have brought theme park quality to Illinois! For a fraction of the price, with better acting quality. Thank you so much for making her party so special and unforgettable!"
"First off, I would like to thank you so much for such a wonderful time. The kids really enjoyed the time they spent with the princess. The planning process was so smooth. The appearance and personality was super! The kids loved it. I will for sure contact for a future event. At first the kids were a little shy but I'm glad to see the amazed faces, giggles and interactions. Overall an amazing time!"
"We all were so pleased with the warm and professional appearance your Glass Slipper Princess presented. The children were just absorbed and the adults were like children again. Our event was a "back to School" surprise event with boys and girls. Everyone had a wonderful time, and Glass Slipper Princess kept us busy and interested. She was right on time even though the weather was so wet. This did not dampen her spirit. I received your information from a co worker who had used your service previously and was very pleased.
I will pass your site name around because I believe your princess gave a wonderful presentation, was respectful and interacted well with the group. Keep up the great work-Loved It!"
"We really had a ball with Slipper Princess yesterday. She did a great job telling her story and singing. The girls absolutely loved that they all got to dance with the princess and take pictures. She handled the room of 4 year olds wonderfully. When they would get antsy she would just redirect their attention and keep everyone happy. Thank you for helping out daughter have a fantastic birthday. Email was a nice and simple contact method, thank you. Loved her costume. Dancing was a great idea for my four year olds party.We chose a company that someone else used and had success with so it was a no brainer."
"I had to write you this email and tell you that Slipper Princess was AMAZING. She stayed in character from the time she hit the door until the time she left. She mesmerized the kids and the adults with her singing voice and story from memory. There was a little girl that had far to many questions as she walked out the door and I knew she was staying in character :) Thanks again. I will recommend your company to EVERYONE."
"She did a great job and I was very happy! We will definitely be returning clients! The Perfect Princess! She was very patient with my daughter. Yes I would recommend your company to my family and friends, we're very happy! It was great and she stayed in character the whole time."
"I cannot emphasize enough how much we enjoyed Slipper Princess's appearance at my 4-year old's Princess Party. I appreciated the timely response to my initial inquiry surrounding the event date and all of the descriptive information provided by the owner. I feel like I received all of the information that I needed and she also asked a lot of specific questions to insure that we had the experience we wanted. We enjoyed everything about her appearance – the physical appearance of Slipper Princess is impeccable and spot-on; the costume is gorgeous – all of our adults at the party commented on what a beautiful, professional-grade dress it was; and the princess was amazing, staying in character the entire time. We have not yet taken our children to a theme park to have a “meet the Princesses” experience and I am almost afraid that they will feel let down b/c of the professional appearance provided by Looking Glass Friends Entertainment. Slipper Princess staying in character was excellent – and I greatly appreciated that she stood for pictures with the “dads” – she was a very good sport and I hope that none of them ogled her. The dads were enamored with her – they thought she looked gorgeous and all of the moms said the same thing. In fact, one of the moms booked Apple Princess from our party for her daughter’s party in September upon seeing Slipper Princess with the kids. Another friend of mine inquired about booking an appearance by Beauty at her daughter’s party upon seeing the photos of our experience. I am hard-pressed to mention anything upon which to improve! We were incredibly satisfied with the appearance – everyone had a great time, we captured adorable photos of the birthday girl, as well as some dear pictures of she and her little sister interacting with the princess. We will certainly pass them along once we organize the many photos we have. Thank you, again, for such a tremendous experience for our girls!"
"Everything about the performance yesterday was terrific. It was just absolutely perfect! The fact that you remained in character the entire time was awesome. I thought it was great that you gave a "heads up" phone call before arriving and made a graceful exit. I felt I may have thrown a few curveballs at you, like when I asked you to play my daughter's favorite song - but was glad to see it didn't even seem to thrown you off! I didn't realize you'd have your own music and we actually had some ready to go in a boom box - but it went SO MUCH smoother with you having your own, so I'm so glad you did! I enjoyed your interaction with the children and involving them in the stories and activities. Several of my guests commented on your appearance - how beautiful and authentic-looking the costume/hairstyle were. Keep up the great work! =) Again, thank you so much. I most definitely plan on using your company again soon and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone - which in fact, I've already done more than once. "
"Slipper Princess was spot on in every way possible. We could not have been happier with her. She was so beautiful, polite, and never broke character. We had some guests at the party that had gone to a theme park a few weeks before the party and they said she was better than the princess they saw there! Thank you so much for making my daughters 3rd birthday an event she will never forget"
"I just wanted to let you know that Slipper Princess was AMAZING. Everything was perfect. She did a fantastic job. She moved around the room and interacted with all the children perfectly. There is nothing she could of done to improve her performance. She was just perfect!!!! I just can't say it enough. Thank you so much. It was just perfect, the whole thing."
'Amazing, absolutely wonderful. I wouldn't change anything!!! We were so impressed and everyone else did too. All the parents were talking about it too. Your voice was beautiful. You were prepared on all levels and remembered everything we had talked about and we had requested. Thank you sooooo much. I appreciated that when asked for a call, you did in a timely manner. Made it easy to email so that was helpful. I wouldn't be concerned about improving anything. I LOVED everything!! Costume was beautiful. Others even commented on how you stayed in character the whole time..even to the car. That was great..my daughter is in love with Slipper Princess's headband and your's looked just like it. No detail was missed. I even noticed your shoes. We felt the activities were well planned out. didn't feel rushed and was very adorable. The musical part was great how that was worked into everything and could be heard very well. Wouldn't change anything. Thanks again for my making my daughter's birthday so magical and so memorable."
"Everything was AMAZING! Unfortunately for us though, my daughter has asked every day since when Slipper Princess is coming back. In regards to the planning process, I was extremely satisfied. I felt that there were no surprises, which was a great thing. Slipper Princess was perfect! Every guest at the party was sooo impressed with the realism and professionalism. Our only fear is that the princess at a theme park next month won't be as good! All the interactions were perfect. I was very impressed with the princess's patience, even with rowdy boys. I'll send over pictures this week and provide a review for you. Thank you again for everything. It was an amazing experience! I would recommend you to anyone."
"Slipper Princess and Fairy Godmother were very true to character. We felt like we had a high quality performance. We enjoyed fairy godmothers sense of humor. Fairy godmother was an excellent performer and the costume was great. The fairy godmother was very good interacting with children and adults. Slipper Princess is an excellent performer, at the well known company level! I booked the party for my daughter because of a princess performance I saw prior. Both Slipper Princess and fairy godmother made my daughters birthday magical! Thank you!"
Thank you so much for a wonderful birthday surprise for my daughter and her guests! I totally appreciated the availability of the character we chose, how thorough all of the information was to book her, and the continual updates from Looking Glass Entertainment. She was amazing and the princess came to life in her. All of the adults commented on how much they enjoyed her Story! She was truly kind and gentle and everyone loved her! We had met the princess at some of the DSA of NWI events and they referred me to your company for my daughter's 6th birthday party. I would highly recommend your company to everyone! Some of our guests have asked for your information already for their own parties to come. This was extremely amazing, for it included one on one attention to our daughter, but we all enjoy all of your characters always! "
"I was speechless, Slipper Princess was perfect in every way. Even to the point of the words she used when having a conversation with my daughter was so her. She was current on all the princesses and current shows, it was wonderful! She was able to move from conversations between child and adult seamlessly and never out of character. I cannot think of one thing to improve. The Fairy Godmother (Lynette) was a perfect side performer. She made the moment complete. The appearance would have been missing something without her. Her song was one of my daughters favorite. The communication was very prompt and detailed regarding the initial phase. The call 15 minutes before arrival is GREAT! I think the best part of pre-planning was the Q/A. Being able to tell you specific things about my child so you could use in your planning of the event was fantastic. It made me confident that our experience would be special and unique. This party was absolutely FANTASTIC! Multiple guests were brought to tears because it was unbelievable. It was better than I had hoped. There were so many things I did not expect to happen. Every detail was thought of prior and taken care of. Even the walking down the street to our house was so exciting. I had multiple age groups of kids at the party and they all loved it. I have been thinking since the party what other reason I could have a party to do this again or who I can suggest this to. Slipper Princess was perfect perfect perfect!!!!!"
"I thought the process was great. I really appreciated the fact that Slipper Princess just went with the flow and I wasn't needed for direction. She was perfect. Her outfit was beautiful and well-made and her performance was impeccable. There isn't anything you could improve on. It was amazing! I loved the special interaction my daughter received. She loved having special one on one dancing time with the princess. The girls had so much fun and the integration was perfect. Overall, the girls and the guests were so impressed. I can not say enough things about our experience. I would love to help you get your name out in my community so let me know how I can help! I can't wait to use your services in the future!"
"I just wanted to THANK YOU very much for the wonderful time you gave our little girl! (and the adults too). You were so professional and lovely! My family and friends were so AMAZED by your beauty and acting. I was as well! Everyone wanted to know how to get in touch with you, I gave them your cards. "
'I wanted to write and tell you how wonderful of a job you (Slipper Princess) did yesterday at my daughter’s party. It was really so much better than I imagined it would be. Seeing all the girls faces light up... especially when my daughter ran to you at the door. It was priceless. Money can’t buy those moments. It was really so much more than I thought it was going to be. Thank you for that. My daughter is so very shy and does not adjust well to changes in her routine so she had a hard time the first hour of the party. It was all tears. She is so sensitive and ...well, it just wasn't a good start to her party. Until Slipper Princess walked in!!!! It was like night and day. You really made all the difference to her birthday and to her party. Everyone asked questions about how they could get a hold of you and what your website was and I was so happy to pass that out. You were just so amazing! I was blown away by every detail, from the hair, the GORGEOUS dress, shoes, your amazing voice... I just want everyone to know about you!!! Thank you again. It was something we will all never forget!"
"I can't tell you how wonderful our experience was with Slipper Princess, and I would recommend your company to all of my friends ad coworkers. The experience was wonderful for my daughter, and like a dream come true for her and her friends! The things I appreciated most about the event planning process were the level of communication (email is preferred), response time was wonderful, and the activity choices on the paperwork gave me a great idea of what I could ask for and expect. My favorite part of the visit, the singing. I loved that Slipper Princess parked down the street so she walked down the sidewalk to our house, wonderful touch. My daughter and her friends saw her out the window, and this made them so excited! Her dress, cape, etc. were perfect, and character was just what I could have wanted. I can't think of any ways to improve. I enjoyed the way the princess involved the girls in her story (what is your wish; dancing), and her singing the most. I like the extra little time with the birthday girl. I will definitely recommend and call on your company in the future."
"I think everything was wonderful. I wouldn't change a thing. Being that I have never had performers/actors/characters at an event, you were more than helpful with giving options of what you could do with the group. I like that you were flexible and willing to let the event happen, and take direction as things happened. A+! I think the costumes and appearance were spot on! Very believable, very true to the character. Absolutely wonderful, I have had only positive feedback about how great Slipper Princess and the Godmother were. I really loved seeing the characters always smiling and having a great time with the girls at the dance. I am more than impressed with the outcome of the event and the characters. Not know what to expect is always a little nerve racking, and trying something for the first time also brings up nerves, but I am smiling ear to ear thinking about how wonderful it really was. Thank you so much again for everything."
"I felt Slipper Princess did a wonderful job of engaging the children and getting them involved with the story and playing games. She posed for pictures and helped direct her time to make it full of fun. She showed extra attention to my daughter as the birthday girl."
"I just to say thank you (Slipper Princess) very much for coming yesterday. You have a true gift with children and you were SO well liked and we thank you. It was a very special moment. Especially the moment when you were dancing with girls, it was so dear. We thank you so much and we wish you all the best."
"Slipper Princess and the Fairy Godmother were truly wonderful! I thought everything was perfect. I was worried about you needing to wrap things up and you were seemed as though time was not even an option and you really made the most of the time you spent by doing so many wonderful things with the kids. I looked around before booking you and your costumes are wonderful, your appearance is perfect and you both looked so close to character which is important to be believable to the little ones. I did upload a photo to facebook that was very sweet of the three of you, and I had even friends on my facebook page that were asking where I found you. I do hope it generates more business for you! We do look forward to seeing you all soon. Thank you so much for your time and availability to be at my daughter's birthday party! I may book one character for a wake up and dress session soon! Thank you so much again and we look forward to seeing you soon!"
"First I would like to say thank you again for making the party an even more special day for our daughter. We know she was truly joyful to see her favorite character at her party. Everything was excellent from the beginning to end. Professional and prompt is what I appreciated the most and, of course, Slipper Princess's voice! :) Thank you over and over again. "
"I was just watching the video footage and I thought it was just wonderful! I couldn't have asked for anything more. Even from the knock at the door , you really made my daughters day and for that I say thank you ,thank you, thank you ! We will see you soon! Thank you again!
"I can't imagine anything to improve our visit. Expectations were met and exceeded! I have gladly shared your information to quite a few people and will not hesitate to continue doing so. Your visit has been talked about since last Saturday and I can't imagine that ending any time soon. My daughter especially loved when Slipper Princess sang with her. I wish you continued success and I hope that might run into a looking glass friend again very soon.Thanks again!"
"She was very professional. She interacted and was very pleasant with all our guests! She played the role of Slipper Princess from the minute she walked through our door! We enjoyed every activity as well as all the kids!! We had a good amount of guests (kids) and she handled it without a flaw!"
"Fabulous job yesterday!!! Thank you so much! All the kids were so enthralled and the adults blown away!"
"I just wanted to thank you for making my daughter's birthday special! Slipper Princess was amazing! Many thanks!!"
"I just wanted to say thank you. You are amazing. You did an excellent job and I look forward to having you back next May."
"Thanks a lot for making our daughter's birthday a memorable one. Other kids had lot of fun listening and dancing with you. We will definitely refer to our other friends birthday parties too. Hope you see you again in future."
"Thank you so much for donating your time at our client fun fest. You were a huge hit!!! I will let all my friends with young kids know about your group. Again, it was a pleasure meeting you and good luck!"
"I was so happy with the performers. All the kids were literally speechless. They were all in awe. Everyone is still talking about Slipper Princess (Kathryn) and the Snow Princess; I couldn't be happier. Their voices were incredible. I LOVED the communication between the owner and I since the moment I submitted my request via email. The professionalism is incredible. Everything was wonderful. The costumes were truly incredible. I have shown my friends and co-workers the pictures and they all have said how beautiful the performers look and realistic. The interaction was incredible. The children enjoyed the games and were sad to see the princesses go. They were incredible with all my guests. From all the companies that I found online you were the only one that were true to character with very reasonable prices and I just fell in love with your company when I started looking through your webpage. I then saw your videos on YouTube and that made my choice even more easier. Looking Glass Friends Entertainment is by far the best company. I have recommended you to all my friends and family. Thank you so much for a job well done. The princesses were AWESOME so awesome I thought I was at a theme park. Thank you for making my little guests dreams come true. I will be hiring you in the near future for my son's birthday. ♥"
"She was amazing! She did an absolutely wonderful job with the girlies. They all loved it despite some of their shyness. All their Moms have been telling me that they can't stop talking about her. I will definitely be recommending your company to all my friends. Thanks again!"
"Slipper Princess (Kathryn) and Amulet Princess are amazing. It was a true Royal experience. It was breath taking. The girls and the Birthday girl were so HAPPY. I am ready to have another party and bring all of the Princess. It was truly amazing. I could not Thank You enough! My daughter Isabella love's Slipper Princess so much. She loves all the princess. And so do I. The appearance the dress was perfect. I could not ask for more. Slipper Princess and Amulet are perfect. My husband and I are so happy. I would not change anything. "
Glass Slipper Princess ~ Rachelyn
"Everything about the experience was wonderful! I can honestly say I don't have any constructive feedback at this time. Rachelyn/Glass Slipper Princess was absolutely amazing and she was so great with the kids. Everything, her dress and hair was perfect and she played the character wonderfully/ I was a little worried she wouldn't be able to fill 30 minutes of time with activities but she played hide and seek with the girls and stayed to sing happy birthday. Great! I was at another party where Rachelyn was "Snow Queen" and she was terrific. I would and have recommended your company and would use you again. It was even better than the last time!
Intergalatic Wars Knight~ Grant
"The party was a HUGE success! The Master was just awesome! We have done the training down at theme parks and he was just as good! The kids just loved him and he was funny too!"
Mermaid Princess~ Kathryn
"I wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed the Mermaid Princess. The kids loved her and she was the highlight of our party. She was simply great! I appreciated the simplicity of booking the princess for my party. You made it easy to book and your communication was great! The princess appearance was beautiful, from her gown down to her shoes. Her interaction with the children was the best part! When she was singing and telling stories, she had their attention and they loved the bubbles that she was shooting from her bubble gun. They did not want her to leave, so I wished that I had paid for 1hr instead of 30 min. She made sure that she paid close attention to their questions and listened to them. They were still asking for her the next day, asking me where she had gone? I was recommended to you by my co-worker who had the Glass Slipper princess at her party. She had the same performer come to her party and she said she was wonderful at her party too. I would definitely pick your company again and will recommend to all my friends. This was my first experience with your company and it was terrific! Christine, a special thanks to you too for making this process of getting a princess so easy. I will be in touch soon to book another character. Thank you and have a great day!"
"We loved having the mermaid princess come to celebrate our 5 year old's birthday. My daughter has been in love with her for a while now, and having this surprise for her was something we will never forget! Everything was simple on my end. I love that she had read the email I sent, and knew some things about my daughter when she came in! She was spot on! Fabulous look and voice. Even the moms were very impressed and said she was the real deal. My daughter tells everyone that the real princess came to her house. I loved how engaged the kids were. For a group of 15 3,4 and 5 year olds, they all sat and listened to the story and song, and to see them all practicing to be princesses was precious. I asked on a moms facebook group and found a few companies. Yours seemed the most reasonable one to work with. I would choose your company again for sure, and I have recommended you already. I believe one person has already booked!"
"We wanted to thank you soooo much for your visit for my daughter's bday! Everyone, kids, parents, all.... Just loved you! Appearance, costume like that at a theme park! Songs, games, were all wonderful! My daughter wants to have you back! We can't thank you enough! Have told everyone about you. Thanks for everything!"
"The costume was incredible, just as good as the characters at theme parks. I wouldn't change anything. The singing is wonderful, as well as the bubbles. It was so sweet that the birthday girl got something special and the other kids got something as well, that was a nice touch. The character was great and she stayed in character the whole time. The kids loved her, and she really interacted well with them. If they went off topic during her story, she went right along with them, and then would bring it back to the story. She allowed them all opportunities to participate and share. Wonderful interactions with all the kids. All the parents said how wonderful it was and how good the performer was."
"Just wanted to let you know that everything went great with the Mermaid Princess on Saturday. She was amazing just like our Glass Slipper Princess last year. My daughter told me that it was the best birthday ever!!! You do a great job with your girls and we will be in touch next March for another party. Take care!"
"I just wanted to thank you for the tremendous job you did this past Monday as Mermaid Princess at my daughter's Birthday Party!!! She cannot stop talking about it, and a couple of the other moms called me today to tell me that their daughters couldn't stop talking about you as well! You really made her "year" with your performance! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I hope our paths cross again some day! Take care!"
"Oh my goodness! I don't think you could be any more adorable!!! Thank you again for a magical evening!"
"We had the best time with you on Saturday. The girls (and their cousins & friends could not stop talking about Mermaid Princess's visit). I really liked how detailed you were. You asked me so many great questions which made your visit as personalized as it could be which made the girls so happy. You looked just like the Mermaid Princess. All of our guests commented on your voice and how you interacted with the kids. They were very impressed."
"Your singing and voice sounded just like the Mermaid Princess's! It truly made every little girl at the party believe!"
Pixie ~ Kathryn
"You guys have a great company!!! Truly amazing! From your quick communication, details are on point, costume was fabulous, the actor stayed in character from beginning to end and we were ALL beyond amazed with everything!! She was interactive with all of the kids even with the story and so sweet to the birthday girl! The majority of the guests at the party have never been to a party with a character and they were all BEYOND impressed!!! Overall A+++!!! I am beyond happy and would gladly recommend your company to anyone!!! My daughters and their friends had so much fun and will remember this party forever!"
"Pixie did an AMAZING job with the kids. my daughters loved her, I couldn't be happier with the outcome and I heard nothing but great comments from my guests,the kids loved her and had a wonderful time. Overall my experience with your company was great from the first email (responding so quickly everytime) to the time Pixie walked out the party. Her costume was really incredible I loved how detailed it was, she looked fantastic. The kids enjoy the story the games and just have her around. Also heard a lot of complements of her singing I would definitely recommend you and the reason I chose you from other companies was because I really liked your website compared to others, you could come to my address with out charging me extra money, and how fast you responded to my email. Thank you!"
"Hi Kathryn - thank you so much for yesterday and for joining us at our party. Olivia and all the girls had a wonderful time!! In fact a few moms emailed me afterwards saying what a great time their girls had. You did such an amazing job. Your costume was beautiful and your interaction with the girls was so lovely. My daughter always wanted a Tinkerbell party and I loved how realistic you looked on your facebook photo. Response time to my emails was very quick and all communication was very clear. You were absolutely perfect - voice, costume, THE WINGS!! Yes I would recommend you- a few moms already asked for your details. Thank you for making this day so special for us! Hopefully see you again soon!"
"I'm so glad we were able to work out the date so we could have you as the Pixie at my daughter's party. The guests all had a great time! We had Kathryn for a Braided Princess party about 3 years ago. We met you several times at a play cafe, as well as at our Braided Princess party and felt comfortable with your style. You have a great appearance for playing so many of the characters, always stays in character so well, and connect well with the children and keep them entertained. The communication was great! It was all great - the kids had a wonderful time and, when the parents saw the photos, they were impressed and said that the character looked like a great Pixie. Yes, would definitely recommend and use again if my kids desired another character that is available!"
"Thank you so much for yet again, another amazing pixie party! Your characters are wonderful! The costumes are beautiful and authentic, I particularly loved her winter coat, very cute! The wings were beautiful too, they looked so realistic! I choose you over other companies because of the beautiful costumes, make up and amazing talent your characters bring. We look forward to more birthdays with you in the future. The entire experience was so magical and real for my girls!"
"Everyone always does have a great time! As always we were very pleased with everything. Pixie was wonderful. She was great at engaging all the little girls, letting them touch her wings, and hair. Playing pixie chase with the birthday girl is a memory she won't soon forget. In addition to showing a genuine interest in what my daughter wanted to show her around the gym, the Pixie did extra special things. We are loyal customers, and have/will use this company again, and again, because quality counts. We love Looking Glass Friends, great management, and extremely talented actresses. Thanks so much!"
"We really enjoyed having the Pixie at our party. My daughter is still talking about it! There is nothing that I see need for improvement! Everything was perfect! One thing I really loved about our performer was her answers and replies to the kids questions or statements. A child said to her "you can't fly" and she said to them "well no, I can't fly when I am big like this, I have to be fairy sized to fly!" It was such a good quick comeback!! All of the adults were very impressed with how she played and interacted with the kids. We will definitely use this company again and refer you to others. I posted some pictures to your facebook page, but had a photographer there as well. I will send a few more when I get those pictures from her! Thank you again!!"
"Our party was a definite success! Your Pixie Fairy was absolutely adorable and all of the children (including the adults) enjoyed having her at the party. Her costume was spot on. I wouldn't change a thing. She never left character and her voice was magical. Your Pixie Fairy made my daughter's 4th birthday party that much more special. I look forward to using your company for future events."
" I can't thank you enough for the adorable message for my daughter. It made her feel so special and brought so much joy to our daughter. You really went above and beyond. Thank you so much. You will definitely be hearing from us again in the future and I will be sure to spread the word about your amazing services!"
"The owner was so helpful on this new program for us. We have been doing daddy/daughter program for years, this was the first time we did mom/daughter program. Gave us some great ideas for Pixie next year and for other characters. I liked when Pixie waited in the car so the little pixies didn’t see her. The costume & appearance was perfect. Pixie stayed in character the whole time around the little ones. She interacted with all the little ones. Some were shy and by the end of the program, they went up to Pixie. The mom’s loved that you were “genuine” with the girls. Never came out of character, interacted with all."
"My daughter had a great time. Pixie was very interactive with the kids~ cute story & dance. She was great. She was very enthusiastic. OUTSTANDING"
Scottish Princess ~ Kathryn
"The Scottish Princess was such a delight! She was very engaging and the children just adored her. We had the Snow Queen and Snow Princess last year and they were exceptional. Looking Glass Friends is superior to other company's I have tried in the past. You respond quickly to all emails. Characters are on time, engaging and professional. You guys rock!"
"As last year everything was fantastic. Gave out several cards. Very professional and wonderful with the kids. Thank you for making our party so special for my daughter. I'm glad we had our party around the Scottish Princess. Definitely worth it.. We will be in contact again!!"
"I was very pleased with the entire experience! The process was easy from the get go, you were responsive and I really appreciated the choice of activities so I could tailor the party to my daughter's interests. The Scottish Princess was excellent! From her dress/hair and accent to her quick sense of humor, and how quickly she engaged the children (they loved her story!) She was lovely. All the parents were engaged as well. She was fully in character throughout the event and presented herself as the real deal. Very authentic and professional. Clearly this is someone who enjoys working with children and families. Honestly, I cannot say anything but good things about the entire experience. She was flexible with the activities and how the time worked out, so that we got a lot of activities in and the children were always occupied and enjoying. She even stayed until every child who wanted a turn with sword play had a chance. She asked me if I needed anything else before getting ready to leave. I so appreciated her gracious attitude. Also, my daughter was particularly delighted with the gift that the princess gave her before she left. All the parents who attended the party were impressed and I will highly recommend you all to everyone I talk to about the experience. Thank you for helping make my daughter's birthday a success and one that we will remember fondly. "
"Thank you so much for joining my daughter's birthday celebration. I wouldn't have changed a thing!! The kids were just thrilled to see her. After the party was over, my daughter told me that "more than all her dreams came true" because she attended the party. I don't think there is a better compliment you could get."
Sleeping Princess ~ Kathryn
"We had a very lovely time with Sleeping Princess. From the moment she arrived, to the moment she left, she was gracious and kind. That sounds so cliché, but there is no other way to describe how wonderful she was. True to character from the very beginning and as a mom, I really appreciated that. The planning process itself was a breeze. Feedback was very prompt and thorough. I was very grateful that you were on top of reminders, because I would have totally forgotten to send everything that was needed prior to the event. I'm not sure there is anything that needs to be improved. I had zero issues. She was perfect. I'm sure the littler ones weren't 100% sure who she was, but the older ones helped out with that. She was the perfect Sleeping Princess...from her dress, to the way she interacted with the children, she was on point with the character. She was extremely patient with my lack of taking charge and being organized. She never rushed anyone and was always asking if there was anything else I wanted her to do during the party. I think the parents had a great time watching their children in awe of being in front of a princess. There was one little girl who got so excited watching her walk up to the house. That made my heart melt. She was very kind to everyone. Every child got a turn hiding the toy when they played the game if they wanted one...which was very nice. I missed the song and dance and have yet to watch the video, but I am sure she was just as kind as she was before they started that portion. She didn't just come, do what she had to and leave. She stayed and interacted with the children. Every girl was a "princess" and every boy was a "prince". When it came time for pictures, she talked with every child, asked questions and had a little conversation with them. Each child had time with her which I'm sure made them feel super special. It wasn't just my daughter's party, it was everyone's party. I loved that no one was left out. We have been to other parties who have used you and those princesses were always so wonderful. Costume and attitude were exactly the same as the animated princesses in the movies and shows. I've been to other parties and events in our community where the princesses neither looked nor carried themselves like the princesses we've seen in the movies...the princesses we are used to seeing all the time. The autographs and little "presents" designed for each character really add to the experience and make the party extra special. Other companies (that I have seen) do not do that. The little things make all the difference. For those reasons, I would definitely choose Looking Glass Friends again. I'm sure by next year we'll have a new favorite princess...or event where we have a bunch of children who would appreciate meeting a princess. I will most certainly recommend your company to other parents looking to book a special character. Thank you so much for creating such special memories for my child and children everywhere. Everyone can not afford to go to a theme park to meet their favorite princess/character...your company is able to bring that excitement and joy at a reasonable price. It is obvious that you and your actors/actresses put a lot of love, time, dedication and passion into what you/they do...it does not go unnoticed. =0) It was a pleasure working with you (and Sleeping Princess too)."
"I wanted to thank you for the wonderful experience that Sleeping Princess provided. My daughters were thrilled. You don't have to go to a theme park for the princess experience - this is the real deal! And boy, could Sleeping Princess sing! It sounded just like the movie! The planning process was so thorough! Sleeping Princess truly wanted to know her audience before her arrival. This was someone who truly understands kids. I tell people if they don't believe me to read your credentials on your website. There really is nothing she can not do! I have already recommended your business to my friends. I am sure we will want to meet more of the characters in the future. Thank you, thank you, thank you. My husband and I could not come up with anything that you could improve on."
"This is my third experience with you and all of it has been wonderful. I appreciated how quickly you would get back to me so as hard as I know how that can be, thank you for doing so and keep it up. Sleeping Princess was exactly how she should be - the girls were in awe. I think everything was spot-on - and I loved your shoes! I think everything went fine - I wasn't sure how we would do with 30 minutes but it turned out to be the right amount of activities and I loved how you kept everything going without a hitch and was able to fit in pictures and autographs as well. I honestly can't think of anything to improve with this experience or prior ones - you did impress the moms at the party so I hope you are able to obtain more business from us. You also have a very lovely singing voice. :) Thank you!"
"Thanks so much. You did a WONDERFUL job. All the girls loved you and all the parents were impressed! I loved it all, perfect, wouldn't change a thing."
"Everything was wonderful-thank you so much! Everything was very easy and I was so impressed with the communication. Nothing to improve. The princess was wonderful-looked like the Sleeping Princess, was very interactive with the girls, her appearance and likeness to the princess was amazing. She played games and danced with the girls and really did a great job of including all the girls. I had seen another girl at a friend's birthday party and was so impressed. YES, I would choose your company again and recommend your company. Our event was just as good as past experiences! Thank you for everything!"
"Once again, we were very impressed with the Princess! Sleeping Beauty was wonderful with all of the girls. Everyone had such a great time! Thank you for making my daughter's birthday one that she will never forget."
"Thank you very much for being a part of my daughter's birthday party.We, all of us, liked you so much. As much I will like to help you to improve your development, I can't do it because we just liked everything from the beginning until end, and I did not have difficulties in any way. So, I do believe you are doing everything from your heart and everything is coming very naturally.Thank you one more time and hope to see you next year!"
Snow Princess and Snow Queen
"The party was amazing! My little princess could not have been more excited to have the snow princess (Allison) and queen (Kathryn) at her party. They were very professional and held all the kids attention for the entire hour they were there. From the beginning of the process the responses have been quick and very informational. I really liked that you asked for all the party information in advance and the performers knew who the birthday girl was. I believe your process works well. The performers were spot on. From their costumes to their actions, they were wonderful. Their voices were great. I loved how they told their stories with the songs included and they involved the kids in song and dance. I had multiple mothers tell me this was the best performers they have seen. The games were great and we loved the snow making! We had a friend use your company and they raved about it. That is how I chose your company and I was extremely pleased. I recommended your company to several friends at the party! We will definitely go to your company again if we hire performers! Thanks again for making my little princesses 4th birthday amazing!"
"Where do I start? From the call confirming their arrival, meeting them and going through the "plan" and everything after was PERFECT! The princess (Allison) and queen (Rachelyn) were amazing with the kids, they took extra special care of my daughter on her special day, and the entire performance was priceless. Change nothing. The costumes, make-up, personalities, interaction and presents for all of the kids were spot on! I will recommend your company to all of our friends and family!! Please tell them they did an amazing job in making my daughter's 3rd birthday very special! Thank you!! "
"The princesses were fantastic!! This was my first time ever using princesses so I was fairly anxious about how it would turn out. We have met the princesses at theme parks and I have a high standard, which made me worry more that my daughter would not accept anything that looked shabby. I scoured the internet and chose your performers because of the positive reviews I had read online via multiple sources. As soon as I saw Snow Queen (Kathryn) and Snow Princess (Allison) I knew everything was going to be great. They looked fantastic. Their dress, their hair-- everything looked perfect (and I know the Snow Queen hair is hard to do). They were also terrific with the kids and really great performers. I was pretty busy with a party of over 20 kids and was running around like a maniac, and I thought it was great that once the princesses came in they could entertain the children without needing my attention. The other thing I thought was fantastic was that the Snow Queen would suggest things to do next-- I never hired performers before and I didn't know exactly what I should be doing... For instance, the Snow Queen would ask if we should take pictures next and of course all the kids lined up for individual pictures with the princesses... I thought that was great because I would not have thought of offering that...The performers themselves were very professional and great with the children... My daughter was being a little shy and they were really good about including her... Other parents also were very emphatic about how great the princesses were... and they really made this birthday party special ... I cant say enough great things about the princesses... I placed a favorable review on your facebook and also on yelp with photos. Thanks again!"
"I just wanted to thank you SO MUCH for your performers visiting our library. Snow Princess (Allison) and Snow Queen (Kathryn) were FABULOUS in every way possible. They engaged with each and every child, sang, and their storytelling was amazing. The small details-- photos, autographs, and smiles-- made the experience special to our community. Some of the kids had never seen anything like it! I know we were a smallish crowd, but I promise you that you guys changed kid's lives! Please extend my gratitude to the performers."
Snow Princess ~ Anastasia
"Thank you so much for sending the Snow Princess to my daughter's party. She was wonderful with the kids and she was a perfect princess. The kiddos were thrilled and I'm so grateful to have been able to give them a little magic. I'll try to find a picture for your FB page. She had a beautiful voice. I will highly recommend all princesses to my friends."
"It was a wonderful experience for the children and the adults a like. The performers were great with the girls and were talented singers in their own right. The girls LOVED singing all the songs with them. Thank you for a wonderful day!"
"Everything was absolutely wonderful with the performers (Snow Princess ~ Anastasia) on Saturday! I can’t think of anything I’d change or try to improve. My daughter was thrilled as were all of her party guests. Thanks for a wonderful birthday experience!!"
"Thank you so much for your services today. My daughter was in so much awe and was totally shocked to see the princesses in person. It took her awhile to warm up to them but they were able to pull my daughter into the activities. I also liked how patient your staff was with the "rowdy" kiddos. Some kept interrupting the story time and they smiled right through it! The Snow Princess (Anastasia) and Snow Queen were on time and ran the hour smoothly. They told a story, played a game, took pictures, sang "Happy Birthday", and stayed a few minutes to talk to the kids. They both had beautiful voices. Thanks for making my 3 year old's birthday something special!"
"The process was very smooth. The costume was excellent and matching to the photos shown and general appearance of character. Characters (Snow Princess- Anastasia) were happy to go beyond the scheduled time for few minutes for photos and very accommodating on time. Main reason for booking was the appearance of character and availability but later on very pleased with the defined process."
Snow Princess ~ Allison
"My daughter had a blast and is still on cloud 9. I thought everything about the timeliness in your responses to your follow up after we booked were fantastic. I can’t say I can give any additional advice on how to improve. The princess was adorable, her skin tone, to the highlights in her hair down to the makeup that she wore made her look just as she should. Her voice was awesome and the kids just loved her. She was so professional and prepared. I thought that the interaction was planned out very well. We only had her for 30 min and she did such a great job entertaining the kids for that 30 min. The game, the singing, the questions she asked and the pictures she took were awesome. She was very good! I would highly recommend her. My friend, who lives in Naperville, said that she has, I believe, hired you guys before, and I know she has been to parties that have hired you before with her daughters. You were the only company that she actually said she feels comfortable recommending. Based on that information I was confident that you guys were the best and my expectations were exceeded. This was my first experience with Looking Glass but I will be sure to recommend you to anyone that I can."
"Everything was great. Looking Glass Friends did a great job at figuring out what I wanted and providing just that. Allison looked just like the Snow Princess, it was awesome. All the children were mesmorized by her. She sang and played a game with them and every child enjoyed every minute. It was so sweet that she handed out gifts to all the children and the gift she gave the baby was beautiful! I chose looking glass friends because I could see pictures of all the characters and a detailed description of what each package offered, though I could see what I was getting I was still blown away by the service I received. Yes we will be using Looking Glass Friends, again and again. I will definitely recommend Looking Glass Friends to everyone I know, parents at the party were asking about Looking Glass friends while she was performing because they were so impressed. I cant express enough how wonderful it was to have worked with your company. Everyone is still raving about the princess and how spectacular it was that she shared my daughter's birthday with us. I most definitely will be contacting you again. Allison was so sweet with the children and patient, I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Thank you SO much!"
"Thank you for your follow-up. We had a great event and the Snow Queen and Snow Princess (Allison) were awesome! They did a wonderful job and my daughter and her friends were thrilled to see them. I thought the whole process was very straightforward and smooth. This is the first time I have hired entertainment for a birthday party. You made the process very easy, the contract was in plain English so easy to understand and very professional. I really can't think of anything else to improve on from my standpoint. The girls were beautifully dressed and really looked the part. I was really impressed with their singing ability (even my mother and mother in law who were helping out commented on that too). I thought they did a wonderful job and couldn't be happier. They were very kind and sweet with all the girls and stayed in character the entire time. I chose Looking Glass based on a recommendation from someone who had used you in the past. I did do a little additional research and found that your company was very reasonably priced based on what I wanted compared to what other companies charge. I would definitely recommend your company to anyone I know who might be looking to hire a character. Thank you for a great experience and wonderful birthday memories for my daughter."
"I liked the detailed email correspondence as well as asking info about my daughter and her likes. They (Snow Queen, Snow Princess ~ Allison) looked amazing and did a great job! I loved that as they were leaving they stayed in character the whole time. That was really top notch. It was perfect and they knew what they were doing! They kept the kids in line and entertained! I chose your company based on price and your packages. I would absolutely use you again and yes I would recommend your firm. I had never hired a performer before. This was a great first time experience! "
"The event was wonderful the characters did a great job! I thought the planning process was great and pretty simple. I thought everything went very smooth. I thought the performers (Snow Queen, Allison~ Snow Princess) were excellent, people were saying "they look exactly like the characters from the movie"! I think the interaction between them and the kids was excellent, they weren't pushy if the kids didn't like something or were shy. I would definitely choose your company again, I thought the performance was perfect for what we needed it to be. Thank you again for making my daughter's birthday very special!"
"Hello! We had such a fantastic experience. Thank you for assisting in making the evening special. Everything was smooth from start to finish. I wouldn’t change a thing. The performers (Snow Queen, Allison~ Snow Princess) looked A-MAZING from head to toe! Make-up, wigs, dresses, smiles, etc. were fantastic! Their voices were incredible! They were so sweet and seemed genuinely interested in each child, which was wonderful and magical. It felt like a theme park experience when talking to them. Loved that they memorized a story and could sing! I chose Looking Glass because I could view photos and see videos online. I saw good reviews and it was affordable for my event. I would use the company again and would recommend the company to others. Thank you for providing a wonderful service. I am excited about next year’s event mainly because I know I have a good company that I can work with and hope to work with you guys again in the future."
"The girls (Snow Queen, Snow Princess ~ Allison) were amazing! They were so professional and exceeded my expectations. If you need a reference or referral/testimony I would be happy to give. It made my daughters day! "
"Thanks! We had an amazing party. The characters were very engaging, and we loved the songs and dancing. The gift for my daughter was great, and she loved being between Snow Princess (Allison) and Snow Queen during the activities. It was a nice touch that they parked down the street to keep in character, and the Snow Princess checked in with me at 15 minutes and 5 minutes to end time, which was great to coordinate pictures then the birthday cake. We used your company at the recommendation of a friend and would gladly recommend others! Thanks!"
"Good morning! Thank you very much for everything. The performers (Snow Princess ~ Allison, Snow Queen) were excellent, beautiful singers. They did a wonderful job. I will definitely recommend and will get them again in the future for my family parties.."
"The appearance of the performers as perfect. Their interaction was great. Many little hands that want to hold them and hug the performers and they were cheerful through it all. Yes, we would choose Looking Glass again. We would recommend your company to others."
Snow Princess ~ Kathryn
"We definitely wanted to take the time to write our experience in detail, and more importantly, commend the performers for their talent! We first had the pleasure to be a guest at two parties our friends hosted. We were absolutely blown away with how true to character each performer stayed with their "regular" speaking voice and singing voice. After the party last year, I always had Looking Glass Friends in mind for the one day our daughter would get into the princess phase. I knew that anything with this snow theme was in such high demand, and I'm sure that these characters in particular would be just as high to make an appearance for parties. As soon as we had the concept of a princess themed party, I immediately contacted LGF more than 2 months in advance of our ideal event date. Looking back at the entire email trail, I was satisfied with the professionalism in correspondence. Personally, I think every single reply email makes a difference, as far as customer service, if any possible client would want to pursue working with the company. I was pleased with the response time, as well as tone in the email and I cannot stress how important that is, especially if we would want to work with them again in the future. As informal as it is to have an "email conversation" to conduct business, there certainly is a tone in response that can still be read, and this can make or break a business transaction. I was happy that my emails were answered in a timely manner, as well as the accommodations that were made to pursue a contract. I am so relieved that I inquired well in advance to make sure the specific characters would be available. On the day of the party, we received the call from the performers 15 min before start time, and we were very happy to hear from them and their arrival time. We informed them of the multiple entrances that were available, and suggested a closer entry that may be easier. They were very punctual, which was extremely appreciated, and their entrance was perfect. It was a relief to know that we would receive a call of their arrival, and we appreciated that. They were able to accommodate enough time for autographs and pictures with guests and continue with the planned activities. It was absolutely perfect! We, along with our guests, enjoyed the realism of the appearance of the characters and costume. I think the Queen and Princess (Kathryn) characters were quite simple in the story, and they were perfect during their appearance...they didn't require props. Both of their costumes, hair, and makeup were very beautiful and detailed. It was so comforting to see that the performers naturally had experience working with kids at the specific age group we had- mainly 4 year olds. I appreciated them really being very personable with all the kids, especially our celebrant, and I was so happy to see both the Princess pick her up for a hug, and even the Queen carrying her while singing "Happy Birthday" to her. She absolutely LOVED them and made her feel SO extremely special, thank you!!! It was a surprise to see that they came prepared with gifts for each kids, and a special gift for our daughter. Thank you! We really appreciated that and no one felt left out. With our particular age group, we knew it would be hard to keep them still for a long duration of time and so we only requested 3 particular songs. There was a lot of interaction of our little guests during the story time singalong and we appreciated that they were not told to hush or be completely ignored, and the characters managed to kindly go with the flow. We definitely observed that the characters were familiar with the interruptions and were pleased to see how they handled all the various situations. We could see that there had the familiarity in working with kids at this young age, and they were the perfect pair for our event. The kids really enjoyed listening to them and especially singing along. We ALL enjoyed listening to their voices, and even their movements were very much in character during the songs. We absolutely loved every moment of it! I've had only one other experience as a guest from a different character party, and Looking Glass Friends definitely sets the bar. The difference with the other company I witnessed is that it was not a professional acting company and they were completely out of character and just overly acted out as typical dramatic teenagers- definitely not storybook characters. The other company played the music and sang along, but it definitely was not true character voices that were pleasing to the ear. With LGF, we were all entirely impressed not only for the ability of the performers to stay in character the entire time, but to have such talented voices to sing as well. What struck me the most is that the main song, is such a sing along hit that our little guests were singing along so loudly together with the Snow Queen, which was so fun to watch. However, I must admit that I felt a little worried that their little voices (about 30+ of them) would overpower the performer's voice. That was not the case. The Snow Queen was able to continue to take control of the room of just under 100 people and belt her heart out, without a microphone, and sing over them. VERY IMPRESSIVE!!! I really commend her performance and was absolutely stunned at this. This absolutely demonstrated their ability to adapt to any (loud) sing along environment and work with the crowd. I cannot say enough of these two performers, and I was so pleased that these two were the characters we had the pleasure to watch and hear before at other parties. Overall, anyone can book people to come dressed up in any character and show up at a party, but we chose LGF for their ability to not only walk in with the poise of princesses, but also for the ability to transform a regular party into a fairytale event with their talent. Aside from mesmerizing the little ones with their costumes and presence, they also captivated the entire audience of all ages with their voices. We felt that it was almost as if a theme park came to visit us at the party and it just melted our hearts to see the expressions of our little guests. They were beyond thrilled to be surprised by the characters and this will definitely be a memory that will be in their hearts to treasure. This was such a beautiful experience for our daughter and our guests of all ages. They have all had such pleasant things to say about the performers and were so happy to be a part of the experience. Thank you, LGF, and a huge THANK YOU to the performers!!!
"The party turned out great and Snow Princess (Kathryn) and Snow Queen were fantastic! I really appreciated how quickly you responded to emails and the flexibility to change venues. I thought that the characters were amazing... The costumes/ appearances were probably as good as when we met them on a cruise. I appreciated that they sat the birthday girl between them with the rest of the girls circled around.... She clearly felt so special. I also really appreciated that they made sure to ask if there was anything else we wanted to do while they were there several times before they left. We chose you after getting your info from an event you did at the Darien community center. We will definitely recommend you likely will use you again next year for my daughter's party! Thanks again!"
"The afternoon was magical and delightful and incredible and wonderful and full of smiles, hugs and happy tears. The Snow Princess was truly amazing. She told the best stories and sang my daughter's favorite songs. She didn't stop looking at the princess the entire time she was singing. It was a moment that will be imprinted on our hearts forever. The princess spoke of the importance of the sisterly bond and how special it is. Your performers go above and beyond and are so talented and engaging. We will spread the word to everyone and hopefully be able to send some business your way. THANK YOU for doing this for our family, for our special girls. My daughter who goes through so much physically and her sister who goes through so much emotionally as the older sister who is aware and knows so much more than any almost 9 year old should due to my daughter's medical condition. Words cannot express our true gratitude. please know how delighted and surprised the girls were and how much love filled the room. What you have done is a gift that means the world to us. THANKS a million times over. We are blessed and so very thankful for your part in the most magical of days."
"Looking glass is great! So easy to set up everything is clear cut and every detail is planned out perfectly. Snow Queen and Snow Princess (Kathryn) were just fabulous! Enjoyed by the youngest to the oldest! My daughter had so much fun as did all the kids! Thank you for having them sing Happy Birthday to my daughter. For the first year she enjoyed blowing out the candles and was not shy at all :) Thank you for a fantastic party! I will definitely refer my friends to you and will call you again for another party."
"I was going to send you a Thank You note but got your email first ;) The planning process was excellent. I was contacted timely, given
alternatives of event options and also got contacted prior the party for details. Great customer service. The performers (Kathryn- Snow Princess) were AMAZING. The costumes can only be compared with those we have seen in theme parks! I don't need to wait in a two hour line at theme parks anymore :) The actresses were in character the whole time, so nice and kind with the children. I thought they were very professional. The best part of the event was the story telling and singing. All girls sang with them, even the ones that were a little timid. Great voices! I will recommend you to all my friends, this is a great party alternative. The girls were entertained and loved the singing and craft. It was also nice that they did not only gave my daughter a gift but also included all the other girls. I will recommend that you continue with that practice, it is very thoughtful. The princesses let us took tons of pics with kids and even some parents ;) they were nice and kind at every time. Please give our thank you to both of them. You have a great team. Congrats!! And thank you very much"
"I appreciated Christine really helping to find a place for our event in the schedule. Given the popularity of the Snow characters, I didn't think we would book in time. The characters' (Snow Princess ~ Kathryn) appearance was absolutely perfect. There was no denying who they were once the walked down the street. The Princess's hair looked so real, and her costume was incredibly accurate. The Queen's costume was beautiful and sparkly, and there are few women who can pull off a platinum blond hair, but your performer did. The performance was perfect. I felt the performers really did an excellent job interacting with all the guests, and I don't think any child felt left out. I also appreciated the way the performers dealt with the slightly more rambunctious kids. They were kind and humorous. Honestly, there is NO other entertainment company that can compare to Looking Glass Friends. I've found that with a lot of other companies in the area, it's basically a meet & greet/photo-op. With Looking Glass you not only get to meet and take pictures with your favorite fantasy characters, but it's an entire experience! The performers embody the characters they portray. The performers at Looking Glass don't just dress the part, they are incredibly talented. At our event, all our guests kept commenting on how amazing the Snow Queen and Princess sang! It was magical! Looking Glass Friends Entertainment has this amazing ability to bring some of that "Magic" directly to your home. There is no comparison. I am quick to recommend Looking Glass to anyone seeking a fantasy character for their event! There are not enough words to thank you for helping to make our little girl's birthday a truly magical one! Thank you very much."
"Everything from the party was wonderful. I can't say I would have changed anything. Your girls (Snow Princess ~ Kathryn) did a GREAT job with the songs and interacting with the kids. I was quite impressed with the singing voices as well. We chose your company because we were so happy with last year's Glass Slipper Princess performance. Also, I am SO PLEASED to see that your prices are so competitive and in some cases even better than other companies in the area (some even being located closer to where we live). I appreciate that a lot. I would (and do plan to) use Looking Glass Friends Entertainment again and have recommended it to several friends and family members. Thank you!"
"I appreciated the prompt response with each contact. The characters (Kathryn- Snow Princess) were authentic in appearance and roles, a delight for the young and the young at heart! Sing-along and dancing were perfection. Kids enjoyed the gift and games. The birthday girl loves her unique gift, a special touch. We chose this as an option for interactive entertainment that would be enjoyed by guests of all ages. I would absolutely recommend this company to anyone. The performers were phenomenal. Thank you for helping make our event extra special!"
"All was perfect. The characters (Snow Princess- Kathryn, Snow Queen) were perfectly dressed and they were very talented. The kids loved it and the parents raved about it as well as asked for the name of the company because they were so impressed. When looking I found that Looking Glass seemed to be the most reasonably priced for the quality. The reviews were great and the characters were available so everything was aligned! I would definitely use you again! I have even talked to my girlfriends about getting our daughters together and just doing a little get together play date and splitting it! With 2 little girls, I am sure there is another princess party in my future :) I would definitely recommend Looking Glass and actually have already done so on yelp! Thanks again for everything!"
"The planning process was fast and simple. I thought the characters (Snow Queen and Snow Princess ~ Kathryn) were great, the costumes were perfect and true to the characters. I chose the 30 minute package which was perfect for my event. The characters told the story and sang the songs. The children and the adult guests really enjoyed the performance. The ladies had lovely singing voices. A family friend, who has hired Looking Glass for several of her daughter's parties, recommended me to you. My daughters and I attended her party where the Glass Slipper Princess came and I was impressed with the character, her performance and her costume, absolutely perfect! I thought the prices were very reasonable, I looked into others and they were quite expensive. I would recommend your company and would also hire again for future events."
"We all had a great party with Snow Princess (Kathryn) and Snow Queen. The performers did an excellent job. Both of the ladies looked beautiful and had wonderful singing voices. They stayed in character and entertained the children and adults. They were especially thoughtful with my 2 year old, the birthday girl's little sister. They paid attention to her and still kept the focus on the birthday princess. We would love to use Looking Glass Friends again in the future. Thanks for everything! We loved the performance!"
" The Snow Queen and Snow Princess (Kathryn) were both FANTASTIC!!! They were wonderful and "made" the party. As far as feedback, they were both so professional and always in character...they both had lovely voices when they sang. The girls squealed and jumped up-and-down when they walked into our playroom, and both performers were so warm and hugged them all and were so patient. I thought their outfits and wigs were excellent, even their shoes, and they both looked very "authentic" in the face to the characters, which was awesome. We were so delighted the gifts that were handed out and especially the beautiful for my daughter. It meant so much to her and she wore it for the rest of the day (and then some!). The Royalty training was so cute and they each sang a song too which was amazing. The kids all loved the autographs too. Just totally top-notch. I will definitely be using you all again and recommending you. I sent a picture of my daughter with them, she was "over-the-moon" and I'll try to upload it too to Facebook and write a recommendation there as well. Thank you so much, again, Christine! Their appearance really made our party and we so appreciate you sending them. THANK YOU!!!!"
"First of all, the kids had the best time with the princesses! I don’t think any improvement is required. Your response time was more than sufficient and I appreciated everything was done via email. I liked that the actors stayed in character the whole time they were in the play area and both actors were able to interact with the kids. Both actors had the best answers to any question that was asked and did not ignore anything that was being said by the kids. The only improvement I would suggest is maybe have the actors come first before any activity. This is more from a party planning perspective for the parents and not any criticism towards the actors. The kids at the party were kind of tired from all the running around and at first were not interested in the actors, but I think the actors may have felt the fizzle and tried their very best to pump the kids back up. I would definitely recommend your company to other parents and if I plan another event would definitely use your company again."
"Thank you for everything. my girls had a blast and a party to remember forever. I will keep your information and recommend you to all my friends. Your employees were on time and they knew how to entertain the kids. Thank you so much!
"The Snow Princess was great! The kids had so much fun! I will definitely recommend her! One more thing! My daughter loves the gift the Snow Princess gave her. That was a very cute idea."
"The event was AMAZING! Wow, it just exceeded any expectations I had. Thank you so much for a perfect event! All of our guests were so impressed by their talent (Kathryn- Snow Princess). Everything was really organized. Costumes were great! Really high quality. Actresses looked fabulous. Perfect, really. I loved that they had a storytime and sang. I thought that I would have to figure out things for them to do to fill the time but they were so well prepared. And their singing voices were fantastic! Our guests couldn’t believe the quality of this appearance. They signed the names beautifully too! I actually found Looking Glass Friends online randomly and I liked the look of the characters costumes. But now I would definitely use your company again. I have already recommended today because I got questions from photos I posted on Facebook."
"I was completely satisfied with the ease of the planning process. So easy and quick responses. The fact that they (Kathryn- Snow Princess) stay in character is great, the costumes were stunning. The interaction was great, personal and fun. But the activities of a sing along and snow magic making was great. I was beyond words when they helped the birthday girl with her cake. and pictures. Even the gift given to the kids. My number one reason was the price, but the pictures shown of the characters are the ones that made me want to book for sure. I especially wanted to book when you were able to be patient with me on choosing the dates."
"The planning process was so simple and convenient. The information on the website was an excellent place to start the process. The email follow-up/communication was outstanding. It was timely, precise and left no room for confusion, all the while being helpful and courteous. I'm sure you get the same questions over and over. You never felt annoyed with me for asking, which is awesome! I can't say enough good things about the appearance by Snow Princess (Kathryn) and Snow Queen. The costumes were dead-on, the demeanor and actions were right on target. The faces of my little guests lit up when they walked in. They were patient from the moment they walked in, till they left. It was a hot day and the performers didn't complain once! They are so very talented as well. They had 24 6 year olds sitting as quiet as could be for an hour and half while they engaged them through song and story. It was an amazing afternoon, as evident by my daughters 'This is the best birthday ever' screeching the whole day! The performers were amazingly patient. I loved the activity. The girls (and a few boys) had fun building snowmen. They answered questions and stayed in character the whole time. Everything was timed so well. We had enough time for singing, story telling, pictures, singing happy birthday, activity and a lovely little princess ceremony at the end that really made my daughter feel special. Kudos to time management by the performers! Your company came from a recommendation from another client. They were having a party and said to stop by and check out the performers. We did, and booked soon after. I have recommend to many others in the neighborhood. Folks saw the performers walking down the street and asked me for contact info! I seriously cant say enough about your company and the performers.Thanks!"
"The performers (Snow Princess- Kathryn) were excellent! Their costumes, appearance, character… everything… absolutely amazing! Myself and my guests thought the Princesses were fantastic. They interacted with all the children and no one felt left out. They were extremely accommodating. I chose Looking Glass Friends Entertainment because they were referred by a friend who had nothing but good things to say about them. I did look into other companies, but ended up going with the referral. I would certainly use you again if I have a need for characters and have already recommended you to several friends."
"I was very impressed and loved everything about the performers (Snow Princess- Kathryn). They did amazing. I would definitely use them and the company again. 100% satisfied. Thank you again."
"Outstanding performances today for our daughter's 7th birthday party. Great control in captivating and maintaining the attention of the children (ages 3-10) and the singing skills (Snow Princess ~ Kathryn) were exceptional. This is the 3rd time we have utilized your unique and professional services and I'm sure it won't be the last. Thank you."
"I just want to say I'm so impressed with Snow Princess (Kathryn) & Snow Queen from my party today. They did such an amazing job & my girls haven't stopped talking about it! I will definitely be recommending your company, great experience! Thank you!"
"I just wanted to let you knows that Snow Princess (Kathryn) and Snow Queen were absolutely amazing at my daughters party today. Their performance exceeded my expectations. They were professional and their love for children was evident. I know that my daughters birthday 5th birthday will be one she remembers forever. Thanks again for helping to make her day so special!"
"Oh my so much I would like to say, all good things, all good things. I can think of not one moment I was not happy. My guest's are still so amazed and already asking how am I going to top this. I have no idea, this was pretty darn awesome.
I will shout from the hill tops how awesome your girls (Kathryn) were, and on Facebook as well. From the moment they arrived, they were in character. I loved it all, the story, the singing, photos...and the small trinket surprised and awwed me. I don't know how specific some of your clients are, but I loved letting them do their thing, and being surprised right along with my kids.. I am sending a couple photos your way, a couple of the ladies with my party guests and one of my daughter's face....the reason it makes it so special. Thank You."
"We had an absolutely amazing experience with the princesses. I never imagined my daughter would love it as much as she did. It made the party – and it was just perfect! I think the planning process was very smooth. I mostly appreciated the very detailed contract. It made it super easy to communicate exactly everything I needed/wanted. The appearance of both princesses (Kathryn) was impeccable. Hair, makeup, costume - it was all very, very well done. We only had a 30 minute appearance, which was perfect for a bunch of 3-5 year olds. I absolutely loved the storytelling – they were very animated telling the story and had beautiful singing voices. They kept the kids so engaged with their energy and animation. I’m sure any other activities you do for longer sessions are great as well. I chose looking glass because of the value based on reviews online. It was one of the most reasonably priced with overwhelmingly good reviews online. I would highly recommend using your company and I will be calling again if we have another princess themed party in the future. THANK YOU!"
"There are no words to describe how wonderful our performers (Kathryn) were yesterday! Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience. My children, along with the others in attendance at the party, had a wonderful experience that I'm sure they'll be talking about for quite some time. The event planning process was extremely smooth. I appreciated that communication could be done via email, as that's what's most convenient, and the communication was extremely fast! In my eyes, the system was flawless! The performers were wonderful in their characters. The costumes seemed to be of high quality, and they really looked the part! The interaction was fantastic! The performers made sure to include all the guests, and at the same time made sure to let the birthday girls feel special. They were so friendly to all. I chose Looking Glass based on experiences I'd had with the company at Kids Town in Wheaton. We'd seen a variety of characters, so I went with what I knew. I found the prices to be reasonable, particularly for the experience that we had. I would absolutely call Looking Glass Friends again in the future. The selection of characters is wonderful! I have shared pictures of yesterday's party with my friends on Facebook and have already been asked numerous times what company I went with, and I have been enthusiastically passing along the referral! "
"I just wanted to let you know how thrilled we were today with the performance that your actors (Snow Princess- Kathryn) gave. We had experienced another company at a birthday party this summer, and they did not compare to what we had today. The actors were spot on, so friendly, and the package went above and beyond. Thank you for giving my daughter and her friends a lasting memory!"
"I loved every minute of the characters (Kathryn- Snow Princess) being at my daughters party. They both looked fantastic. Amazing voices. Most importantly they were phenomenal with the children. This is the best birthday party my daughter has had so far. Thank you SO much!!!"
Snow Queen ~ Kathryn
"Hi! We had the Snow Queen come to my daughters fifth birthday party on May 4th at 6pm. Everything about our experience with Looking Glass Friends was so wonderful. Communication was so fast and easy before the event up to the day of and the Snow Queen's arrival. Her coming to the party was not only a surprise for my daughter but to all of her friends and their parents as well. She arrived on time and was so wonderful with the kids through out the whole hour she was here. My daughter gave her the biggest hug and I think she was in awe that her this magical person was at her house.The girls loved singing "Let It Go" and dancing so much. What a special touch to give the birthday girl special gift and something not only for her but all her friends. The girls truly cherish those gifts. Something that really sold me about your company is that all of the performers are educated and passionate about what they do. I think it is also great that you are so involved in the community. What a wonderful company. I have nothing but positive things to say. Seriously I have no complaints and would hire a character from your company again in the future!"
"Everything was great- My husband booked the event and had all the information I needed to plan and get ready for the princesses to arrive- really nice party- did not have to entertain! The princesses (Kathryn ~ Snow Queen, Snow Princess) did not leave character once- just like the theme parks! The performance was awesome- they did an incredible job – singing, dancing, playing games, and of course telling the story. The timing was perfect- they lead the activities and I really enjoyed the party sitting down waiting to see what was next. The ladies really did a fabulous job with the children. Even the two year old who liked to be next to the Snow Princess. They kept in character and everyone old and young was amazed. Definitely recommend- This is the first time we had a company in our home- we have went to a lot of performances- and never booked any prior. My husband reassured me that it was real deal and the girls would be taken away to a magical place- and we all were. We would definitely use the Looking Glass Friends Entertainment in the future for quality and truly amazing experience. Thank you so much and we are excited to see the next performance in Chicago! AWESOME!"
"She was fantastic and my daughter and her friends absolutely LOVED her! Thanks for making the birthday great! In addition I found communication and response of your company very good and made the whole process super easy and low stress knowing that your performer would be there on time and as promised."
"When I first started contacting I had a lot of questions. All of my questions were answered promptly and effectively. I was very pleased with that. Booking was easy and I was kept in contact up until my party date. Right before Snow Queen was set to make her appearance at my party a huge thunderstorm hit the area and she was still prompt and right on time! I felt horrible she had to drive in those conditions. She arrived on time and ready to entertain! She looked a lot like the Snow Queen and the costume was great! She was wonderful!! Interacted with everyone at the party even my one year old son. The children loved the entertainment all were singing along with her and watching her intently. Looking Glass had gone to a family member of mine's place of employment to do an event. She had told me they had done a wonderful job. I also appreciated the reasonable prices. A lot of these types of places I had looked up were charging way too much for entertainment. I would DEFINITELY use your company again and have already recommended it to a few of my friends who are thinking about booking. Thank you so much again for such a memorable experience!!"
"The snow queen was amazing!! Loved everything about her, how softly she talked, how friendly she was and she had her own music. She carried out all the requests perfectly like singing, posing for pictures, etc. Your service was great, you replied to my emails promptly. The reason I picked your services is because it was for the half an hour that I needed and due to price and also good rating. Thanks again. I will recommend your services to everyone!"
"I LIKED THE FOLLOW UP, CONFIRMATION EMAIL, AND THE CALL BEFORE SHE CAME TO OUR HOUSE. THE SNOW QUEEN WAS GREAT! ALL THE GIRLS LOVED IT! THEY LIKED HEARING HER SING AND TELL THE STORY. I LIKED HOW SHE TRIED TO INVOLVE THE KIDS IN THE STORY AND ASK THEM QUESTIONS. THEY ALSO LOVED TAKING PICTURES WITH HER AT THE END. WE SAW THE SNOW QUEEN AT ANOTHER PARTY AND MY DAUGHTER REALLY LIKED HER SO WE DECIDED TO BOOK IT. I THINK THIS IS A GREAT BIRTHDAY IDEA FOR YOUNG GIRLS. WE ALSO LIKED HOW SHE PASSED OUT GIFTS AT THE END. GREAT JOB THANK YOU!"
"We had a GREAT event yesterday. The Snow Queen was perfect and really played the role well. The kids all adored her. One thing I really appreciated is how she was with my younger daughter. She is 3 and was very timid with all of the bigger girls around. The Snow Queen asked me if there was anything else I wanted her to do before she left (when she had a few moments left on her time) and I told her it would be great if she could spend that time with my little one. She made such a great effort to make my little one comfortable and it was five minutes my 3 year old will not soon forget. We all loved her so much. The birthday girl’s face was priceless when she walked through the door and the kids all loved singing with her. The planning process, as always, was seamless. And we would definitely use Looking Glass again. Thank you for everything."
"I appreciated how you contacted me at every step as promised. It was good to keep in touch and made me feel very comfortable everything was on plan since this was my first experience! Loved the performer. Her voice was amazing.. next time I'll request more singing if its the same performer! Her costume was gorgeous and real looking and appropriate in terms of her being nice and covered up - a few guests noted this as a positive. She was sooo sweet and the girls loved her.
I chose your company via a recommendation. Yes I would definitely use you again and I already have referred one person to you to hire the Snow Queen."
"Your company is astounding and so many parents want to book events with your company. I truly believe that your company is very efficient. From the moment I contacted you, there was a quick follow-up. I cannot say that there is any room for improvement. You honestly have exceeded my expectations! Everyone was astounded with the appearance of the characters (Snow Queen ~ Kathryn)! They looked and ACTED just like the characters and it honestly was astounding!!!! Their behavior, speaking tone, affect, and overall demeanor was the epitome of the characters! I am astounded and continue to speak in the highest regard about your company. Honestly, it is a true skill working with pediatrics and your actresses were perfection! They seemed to engage the children like child clinicians/child psychologists would engage a group of children. They interacted with the children so well that it was noticeable to all of the adults in the room. The activities were perfect for their age group. I would HIGHLY recommend your company over and over again! It was beyond spectacular and I market your company constantly and truly believe your company makes the dreams come true for all of the children. It was an honor to meet your actresses and I will definitely contract your company again!! "
"Thank you so much for booking the Snow Queen for my daughter's birthday party. The girls had a blast!! There was great communication and flexibility with booking my event. Nothing to improve on! I have been telling everyone I know about the Snow Queen. Her voice was beautiful, the girls were in awe! She spent the time answering any questions the girls had and even pushed my daughter on her swing in our back yard. : ). She was able to keep 12 girls, ages 6 and under captivated for the whole time she was there, I've never seen that happen with this group of girls! She interacted with everyone at the party. She kept the girls busy while doing individual makeovers, which was great! You had great reviews and your website was easy to navigate. I had most questions answered before I even reached out to you.I could not have been happier with the Snow Queen and your services! I have and will continue to recommend your company with pleasure! Thank you so much! I'm sure we will be talking again for future events. : )"
"Everything from beginning to the date of the event was clear and precise. First impression is everything and her smile was very inviting and warm. Snow Queen was very presentable as pictured on company and facebook photos. Her costume was beautiful! I truly respect the character stays in character upon entry to her departure. This definitely maintains a magical experience. The whole experience was amazing! Due to the space limitation at the venue, Snow Queen was very flexible and patient. I didn't not expect the singing but definitely a nice addition to the event. The performer had a beautiful voice. The special gift given to each and every guest was a nice surprise and I love how my daughter received an extra special gift. Based on photos only, the entertainers/characters appeared to be close to being authentic. I appreciate the performers are skilled entertainers and able to provide a variety of options. I will most definitely be using your company again for future events and will definitely be recommending your company to others from parent, families, companies and non-profit organizations. Because of our experience yesterday, I have already posted your page/website on my timeline on Facebook. Being a former entertainer/performer, I can appreciate and understand the obstacles we encounter as each event. I want to repeat myself by saying how professional, poised and patient Snow Queen was at my daughter's birthday. Being a public venue and competing against 5 year attention span, the indoor playground, the loud music/voices and the crowd, she was positive the whole time and was very open-minded and made the best of it. Thank you so much for all the memories and magical experience you bring to kids."
"Hello! Yes everything was perfect! Thank you! I appreciated the quick replies and in depth description of the process. Nothing to improve on there! The snow Queen was great! Her costume was fabulous and there were some little snow queens in the audience that loved how they matches her! It was as I expected! The interaction was great. She was great with the kids. She was patient and kind and made everyone feel included. She did special things for the birthday girl but not too special so that other guests would get upset--she did just the right balance! The story, singing and dancing and etiquette and games were perfect for the theme. She also perfectly timed all activities. Yes I would use your company again and would recommend to a friend. I chose Looking Glass Friends based on a recommendation from a friend and I thought your prices were good. I will get some pictures together and check out those websites! The little girls loved her so much! My daughter has been talking non stop about Queen Elsa being at her house and really enjoyed the party. And Lynn, the face painter, was super talented and well organized too! The party was a success! Thank you so much!! "
"Snow Queen was a hit! My daughter loved it. Her wish was for the Snow Queen to be at her party and it came true. Thank you for keeping her to continue to believe. The location may not have been ideal but she made it work. The Snow Queen is professional and flexible and was able to adjust to the surroundings. She was there for photos, birthday cake and treated my daughter special. The special gift to the kids was a nice touch and surprise; definitely a keepsake. The next surprise was her voice. Everyone enjoyed her songs! I will definitely spread the word about Looking Glass Friends Entertainment to others."
"The Snow Queen (Kathryn) and Snow Princess who entertained at my daughter's party couldn't have been better. They were very talented and had a room full of 5 and 6 year olds believing they were truly with the real characters. I wouldn't have changed a thing. It truly was very magical. Everything was very professional with your company from day one. I learned about your company from a friend. Thank you and I've already been asked for your name from two guests at my daughter's party."
"Thank you thank you so much! Such an epic experience! 10 out of 5 stars! The video was the final touch as my daughter has been asking if the Snow Queen can return. So glad a friend recommended your services."
"I want to thank you and Snow Queen so much for making my daughter's birthday so memorable! All kids and adults were in aw the entire time she joined us! She catered to all kids but mainly focused on my daughter which made her feel so special. I can't thank you enough for such an amazing time. We enjoyed the experience, the singing, dancing, and look forward to doing business again with you."
"Snow Queen was great! Kids loved her! Costume was amazing and she sang great too! Thanks for helping make my daughter's bday special! "
"Thank you so much for the entertainment--the kids LOVED the Snow Queen--she was a huge hit!! My favorite part was she really had every single kid AND ADULT singing--it was beautiful. Thanks so much--I'll be referring others to your company---Great work!"
"We had so much fun with the Snow Queen. Your company is so good with kids. We are pleased every time we use Looking Glass Friends and we would never go anywhere else. I am so glad to have found you!"
"Thank you so much again for such a wonderful party! Everyone absolutely loved the Snow Princess and Snow Queen (Kathryn). You were extremely professional, organized, extremely easy to reach, and very responsive from the beginning and throughout the process. I also liked that you can provide a deposit online through Paypal. It was very easy and hassle/worry-free. Physical appearance and the singing was perfect! No improvements. Everything was perfect. I really liked how they sang and engaged the audience. I was a little nervous when the kids started touching the Snow Queen's hair, but she was so gracious and nice about it! I chose Looking Glass Friends Entertainment based on the pictures on the website - the characters looked a lot more realistic than the others that I had looked at. This was a year ago when I was planning my daughter's 5th birthday. You did such a great job as Cinderella that I called again and booked two parties with Snow Queen and Snow Princess for my daughter's 6th birthday. I will definitely be booking again next year, and absolutely recommend your company to others! I've actually already posted on Neighborhood Parents Network (npnparents.org) message board what a great job you do (there was a post asking for character recommendations). Also, I have given your name to other parents who have asked, including my friend's coworker who asked for your name after seeing my friend's daughter with you on her Facebook page. Thanks again for a wonderful party, and we will see you again!"
"The performers (Snow Queen- Kathryn) were very professional, stayed in character and had witty and character responses to the children's questions. The singing was our favorite part, as well as how the characters engaged the children in conversation during the craft activity. The princesses made the birthday girl and all the guests feel very special"
"The party was wonderful! Of course the best part was seeing the girls' faces light up when seeing the Snow Princess and Snow Queen (Kathryn). The Snow Princess and Snow Queen looked wonderful. Perfect, makeup, hair and costume. An added bonus was their incredible singing voices! My favorite part was the sing along. As a mother it was a very special moment that brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for helping bring such joy to these little girls that just love this movie! I would of course recommend everyone use Looking Glass when wanting to book that special party. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
"The planning process was smooth and my questions were always answered quickly! You guys were a pleasure to deal with the entire way! Costumes, voices and everything were perfect! The characters interacted so well with all the children and were just enchanting! I loved how engaged the princesses (Kathryn- Snow Queen) were and how they genuinely seemed to enjoy interacting with the children! The games were fun and went alog with the theme of he characters! Your characters are so realistic looking and by seeing and hearing them, you would think they were straight out of a theme park! So perfect!! Everything about the process was wonderful! The children had an amazing time! I would definitely use your company again and recommend you to anyone!! Thank you for everything!"
"My daughter and I just got home from a "Princess Training" at the Roselle Park District with special guests, the Snow Queen (Kathryn) and Snow Princess. She could not stop talking about them all the way home, and could she see them again tomorrow, and they were so nice, and maybe they would like some tea and cookies, and can they come to her birthday, and ...? (We may have to discuss that in future, Looking Glass Friends!) As a parent, I thought the ladies were very patient and competent at keeping the kids focused, and I was super-impressed that they never broke character! Not a rolled eye, not a frown, just constant character! Wow! My daughter and I both enjoyed the singing led by both Queen and Princess-- you have lovely voices, ladies, and again, great control of the group. I really appreciated that they took a little time to sign their autographs for my girl. Thank you so much! Job well done!"
"Thanks for a wonderful 5th birthday party for my daughter! Snow Princess and Snow Queen (Kathryn) had the girls - and parents - mesmerized, and I received many compliments from attendees, young and old! The event planning process was very clear, timely, and thorough. The highlights were definitely the re-telling of the story and the singing along - the participation of the party guests was priceless! I thought everything was very well-paced and age appropriate. I can't think of any improvements. I have recommended Looking Glass to two different friends because it was such a positive experience. I chose Looking Glass because I'd been to a party several months ago in which Mermaid Princess was the entertainment from Looking Glass and thought she did a great job of engaging the girls! Keep up the great work!!"
"My daughter absolutely LOVED the Snow Queen (Kathryn) and Snow Princess characters. They were wonderful. All the kids just had a blast! Her party was the talk of the class Monday morning. The event planning process was good. The questionnaire covered all the info and I liked that that followed up when got closer. The costumes were great and they looked just like the characters. They were always in character. I enjoyed that they led all the activities during their scheduled time and I didn't have to worry about the agenda. All the activities flowed nicely and the kids had a great time. I chose your company over others because everything just looked so much more professional and authentic. I liked all the information on the website and the fact that the character performers had wide range of experience. I would definitely recommend your company and use again in the future."
"Thanks! The event was a success!! Nothing to improve, everything was great! Costumes and voices were great! Loved the surprise gift! I heard that your princesses (Snow Queen - Kathryn) look real! Very clean and professional. I have recently seen others and they don't compare!!!!"
"I found the planning process very smooth. The performers (Snow Queen - Kathryn) looked great and none of the children questioned their authenticity! The children loved getting autographs and having their photo taken. We chose your company because of your generous discount for schools. We would love to work with you again and will definitely recommend you to others! Thanks again."
"Great! Everything was perfect! They (Kathryn ~ Snow Queen) were amazing with the kids! They could not have done anything better! I liked the way your characters looked on the website!
"It was the best party ever!! Snow Queen (Kathryn) and Snow Princess were fantastic!! We loved it ! Thank you again!"
Snow Queen ~ Allison
"Everything was clearly communicated from the pre-contract e-mails until the final reminder e-mail a few days before the event. I really liked the list of things to consider that was sent to me after the contract was signed. Nothing to improve. The Snow Queen was perfect in every way. She was very warm and friendly, her appearance/costume was gorgeous, and her singing was excellent. Nothing to improve. She was great with the kids and the game was very fun. Nothing to improve. I considered 3-4 companies. I really liked that I received a response to my initial inquiry within a couple of hours. There were many positive reviews on Yelp. Also, an acquaintance of mine has used the company for her kid's parties, and she spoke very highly of the company. The personal recommendation was the main deciding factor. I would definitely use your company again and I would recommend it to friends/family. "
"The Snow Queen was FABULOUS. Our guests (both young and old) were all amazed. My daughter was a bit shy, but she was really happy that she came, and she has watched the video several times this evening. Please let the performer know that she did an excellent job. Our neighbor asked for your company's contact information as well. Thank you so much for making our daughter's party so memorable and special."
Snow Queen ~ Jane
"Oh my where do i start! I can tell you that it was the best choice I made for my daughter's 3rd birthday! My daughter has been all about the Snow Queen for over a year, however this past August she went to theme park and didn't get too close to any characters. So I was uncertain if she'd be scared or cry or just be happy to meet the Queen! For weeks she kept telling me, "Mommy, can the Queen come to my party". So as the Queen was approaching the entrance, I whispered to my daughter, "Do you still want the Queen to come to your party". she said "yes Mommy", I said, "Well, I think I hear her walking in the snow, do you see her". She looked & looked out the window, and then she walked through the door... My daughter's face just lit up in excitement! She said "Its the Queen" She started jumping for joy! She was ecstatic! She was filled with nerves, joy & Happiness & kept flapping her dress of excitement! My daughter loved that the Queen knew it was her Birthday & knew her name! She truly believes the Queen is her friend now! This completely made my daughter day! Her year! It was definitely the highlight of the party! Everyone enjoyed it! The kids had so much fun! The adults thought it was the best idea! Parents asked for the info! I absolutely loved the games she played with the kids! They all seemed to follow the Queen's commands!
Loved loved loved the special touch of the Snow Queen having a gift for my daughter! My daughter felt so special and still does! The storytelling was great! The singing was excellent! She sang beautifully! My daughter loved it! The dress & cape were gorgeous! She looked beautiful! The kids loved that they could take pictures with her too! The parents appreciated it too! My daughter's 3rd Birthday party was a success! Thanks to you all for the great performance! I am absolutely happy & satisfied with this experience! We will definitely choose your company next year for another character! Thank you so much for making my daughter's 3rd Birthday so special!"
"The planning process went extremely smooth. No complaints. The performer was FANTASTIC!!! I wouldn’t change a thing. She has a wonderful singing voice as well. We couldn’t have been any happier. Her interaction with the kids was great. She got all the kids involved. She was fantastic with my older special needs nephew as well. She was awesome! I chose Looking Glass based on reviews I read. I would most definitely choose Looking Glass again and I would highly recommend your company."
Snow Queen ~ Rachelyn
"I like the quick response and easy payment method. It was good to have reminders throughout until date of event. Contract was easy to agree! You even respond at night hours or weekends! Everything was beautiful. The performer was in character and very real to the kids. She sang to the kids and they really enjoy the singing part. The weather was bad but the performer arrived on time! The interaction was fun. She made the birthday girl felt extra special by asking her to sit next to the Queen That made my daughter smile all day. The gift was very pretty, very thoughtful. I've already recommended you to a lot of friends at the party. A few had chose Looking Glass Friends for their kids party last year. It was good. She didn't mind when I ask if the kids can take pictures with her in the snow and the kids will cherish this moment for a lifetime. I really appreciate it."
"I'd like to start by saying that your actress was amazing! She was beautiful, in character from start to finish and very friendly. My daughter had an amazing time and I intend to use this company again and recommend it to friends with children. She was fantastic! I'm sure I'll be using this company again for my next event! "
Wendy ~ Kathryn
"She really did a great job! My daughter was so thrilled as were all of the other kids there! Thanks for having her as a character, it was hard to find but your company came through again! I am sure we will use you again in the future! My daughter loved her, just let her know that!"
"Just a quick note of appreciation to our guest, “Wendy”, on Tuesday’s visit to the DeMotte Library Summer Reading Program! I want to add my comments: YOU WERE GREAT! I know that I talked to you for a moment before you had to leave, but I am still so impressed with the calm and collected manner you displayed, and that your “character was never broken”…..not even for a second! Your answers to the many questions that were asked were brilliant. (even the Justin Bieber ones!) All in all, I was extremely impressed with how well prepared you were as the character of Wendy, and I am eager to see other members of your ensemble whenever possible. I am hoping that you gather other contacts for additional bookings from your trip here to DeMotte Library. *I know that I will be “dropping your name” whenever possible! :^) I wish you continued success in your programming efforts."
"We saw the Wendy performance at the DeMotte Library. We were early and 'Wendy' sat to have a bit of a chat with my little girl. My daughter just fell in love! She told me later that she was just so excited and nervous that she really didn't know what to say! Too cute!"
"Hi! Thank you very much for your service with my daughter’s birthday. She had a great time and I have nothing but good things to say about the princesses. The planning process was simple and easy. The princesses (Mermaid Princess ~ Kelly, Braided Princess ~ Allison) had the perfect costumes and hair so that the die-hard four year old fans could easily recognize them. About half of the kids at the party were boys, and of the girls, there were only about 5 or 6 that were interested (or not too shy). Even with the small group (the birthday girl included) the princesses kept the fun going and engaged the girls the whole time they were there. The dancing and the flowers that were given were great. We used Looking Glass after attending a party where they were as well. Both experiences have been great. I will recommend you to all of my friends.
"Last night was amazing! The Glass Slipper Princess (Kathryn), the Snow Queen (Stephanie) and Amulet Princess (Anastasia) costumes were fantastic! Not only were their appearances great, they were so warm, friendly, and professional. They gave the guests their undivided attention and interacted and danced with them every moment they were there. The girls will absolutely never forget meeting them. I am so glad we used your company, you are all so professional, easy to work with, and know how to add an extra special touch to make the event special and all at a very reasonable fee. I greatly appreciate you checking in during the planning processes and appreciate your attention to detail. I hope the characters had fun! Thank you for everything!"
"Thank you so much for being a part of my daughter's birthday party. Not only did the performers look incredible, they were so realistic and not once did they lose their character. From the moment they arrived to the moment they left, everyone was in awe of the professionalism and patience they had with the children. This event was everything I hoped for and then some! This was a wonderful memory that my daughter will keep in her heart forever. Thank you so much for making her birthday wish come true. Her wish of becoming a True Princess. I would definitely recommend Looking Glass Friends Entertainment to everyone I know. There is no doubt about it! Everything was planned out perfectly. From my point of view, there is absolutely nothing to be improved.
Once again thank you for coming."
"Thank you, Mermaid Princess, Glass Slipper Princess (Kathryn), and Snow Queen, so much again for coming out to visit my daughter at the hospital. She has had such a hard time in the hospital everything has been so scary that this just lifted her spirits. She was a little scared for a while but once the tea party started she had a blast! Also after the princesses visited her she actually wanted to start moving and playing around the hospital. This really just meant so much! Thank you again and I will always highly recommend your company and will probably contact you guys for another one of my daughter's parties once she is feeling better!"
"Can I just begin by saying, oh my gosh!!!!! You guys were great!!!!! My guests loved you....and couldn't stop talking about how great and beautiful they were. Thank you once again. I loved Apple Princess and Glass Slipper Princess (Kathryn)!!!!! They really looked the part and their costumes were amazing!!! All the guests fell in love with theses ladies!!! I will definitely hire them again. As well as letting friends and family have their information so they can hire them too. I don't think they need to improve on anything !!!! The children loved the princesses and they were extremely sweet and very interactive with the guests. Again nothing they need to improve on.
Once again thank you so much for making the party a success."
"My daughter and all of her friends truly enjoyed the party. When I asked my daughter if she enjoyed her party, she looked at me and said, "Mom it was amazing." That melted my heart!!! All of you did a wonderful job and I was completely pleased with the outcome. I was very pleased with the response time throughout the event planning. You were prompt and very thorough when responding to my emails. I was so nervous the day of the party because I didn't know how everything was going to turn out. However, all of my worries went away the moment the three princesses walked into the room. All of the children were memorized. The princesses' costumes were perfect as well as their interactions with the children and parents. Many of the parents are still talking about the party and I'm forwarding your information to some of them because they want to look into hiring you all in the future.
Thank you so much for making my daughter's birthday a magical one!!!!"
"Thank you so much for appearing at the party. First of all, I want to apologize for the late response. We loved it so much that we couldn't express exactly how we felt. 3 months later and we are still talking about it. My 3 year old daughter still thanks us for having her party with Braided Princess (Kathryn) and Beauty. It was an amazing time. We booked the photographer as well. She did an amazing job as well. Got some great pictures, thank you. We appreciated everything! The princesses were amazing. We really appreciated how even though we gave an estimated kid total, there ended up being a little more and they really seemed to be ok with that situation.
Braided Princess and Beauty were great. Everything was perfect. No improvement is necessary. The two princesses that we had looked great. I can not express how amazed we were. They played the part better than we could imagine. The singing was the best part of the performance, we were surprised when the princess sang, great voices and a great job. The kids, as well as the parents, loved everything that they brought. I can not stress how great of a job you guys did. The singing and story telling was unbelievable. Again we would like to thank Looking Glass for an excellent job and we are truly sorry for such the late reply. Truly the best out there. We would definitely be booking again. Thank you for the great memories that we are going to have ."
"I just want to say that your company is amazing! I heard so many wonderful comments about how the princesses included every child! I cannot begin to tell you how grateful our organization is for the effort and time you gave to our families that have children with special needs. I will be sure to put your name in our newsletter, on our website and extra business cards in our office. We appreciated every aspect of the way the princesses took their time, were patient and made sure all the kids and adults with disabilities were included! There were so many positive comments and we even added your logo to our website to promote your company because everyone thought the princesses were amazing! The costumes were the REAL THING not a fake imitation. They were as close to the real theme park princess characters as you could get without going to a theme park! Perfect! I would highly recommend using your company and will be sure to get the word out! I think your princesses do the promoting themselves by taking so many little steps to make each and every one of the children/adults with Down Syndrome at our Awards Night feel AMAZING!Thank you so much!"
