About Me

This is US...

You'll find us at MARKETS & EVENTS typically wearing rainbow.
As of 2022: We are Mr & Mrs OFFICER
Rachelle (rachel) & James
The company is mine & I have grown it to where it is today from 2015, when I first tried my hand at facepainting. We all started somewhere & this was my result... EKK...

Anyway...
I grew up in TeAnau
Moved to Dunedin (aged 10?), Moved to Timaru (when I was 22?), Moved to Chch with my ex husband & fell pregnant at 23, had my two babies & wouldn't change that for anything. Love them both to pieces!

2015 I started for my kids school disco with the PTA

2016

(left my ex husband, not that important, kinda is...)
I'm now with a man that supports what I LOVE TO DO, no matter what I do !! 
Even though he admits that living with a CRAFTY person, its a MESSY job.
hahahaha.... & started to be hired for facepainting at birthdays, I attended many weekend markets to get my name out there

2017

Is when I started my facepainting fb page & so many-many markets that I attended back then. Like EVERY weekend. Where ever I could get in! To try & build up my lil business & to help put FOOD on the table.

UV comps were held at an amazing venue in Christchurch: HALO & such a fun crowd of people to be among! xxx

2018

(Nov) I expanded my business to include AIRBRUSH TATTOOS, temp tattoos that last 3-10 days if looked after or if you don't get hot when you sleep lol. I'm now able to cater better towards CORPORATE EVENTS, we have 2x AIRBRUSH KITS, 2x Artists - corporate events can be anywhere between 2 & 8hrs & MANY attending. Airbrushing is much faster than face painting. We also do private parties. All ages love it & get in on it. #loveitwhenadultsjoinin
I've also made many friends in this line of work.
So if I'm not available, I will find someone for you.

2018: I placed 3rd - I was pretty proud of myself !!! ps. The elephants ears & feet moved, hope you can imagine that! :p

2019

I opened my SHOP, got an importers license, import face paint supplies & biodegradable glitter, I did my research to get the BEST GLITTER on the market for you in large amounts so you can purchase in small amounts :)

2020 Covid hit, not as many jobs coming in, still was able to work a few birthday parties, so THANK YOU for all the support xoxo
2021 (still covid) but got to be apart of a few amazing jobs! eg. AIR NZ, along with other amazing new clients & repeat customers (love that kind)

2022

I'm fully Vaccinated & all Events have slowed...

Ways you can support me:

  • A like / love / smile, a share, on any fb post, share my website with any family & friends. 'Cos we'll get back out there face painting etc soon.
  • You can purchase products to make DIY kits at home for entertainment during holidays, I can give you printed help sheets for you or lil ones
  • I sell glitter tattoo kits fun for all. The glitter can be swapped out for BioGlitter.
  • You can purchase a gift card & keep or give to someone, they can be used for anything in my shop, you can even GIFT A PARTY (for face painting or airbrushing) if you didn't want a party, they can still be used on items in store

a BIG THANK YOU for any purchases you make or hiring me, in the past & in the future. Look forward to working with you at your next party or big event & getting everyone's orders correct & out quickly!
