    Some of the Great Events we got to bring Entertainment to this Month included:

    Chinese New Year Tech Party

    We brought some great color and excitement to a Chinese New Year themed party at a Tech company in San Francisco.
    The red and gold costumed entertainers represented the Fire for the fire monkey year… and we had a Stilt Walker, Living Table, and Champagne Skirt.Asian Empress Champagne Skirt and chinese new year asian stilt walker in SF by Catalyst Arts

    Wedding Pop up at the City Club SF

     Our fabulous golden Deluxe Champagne Skirt Lady greeted guests as they wandered into the charming Wedding Pop up produced and hosted by San Francisco City Club. Guests got to sample many options available to them for wedding rentals including hair/makeup, drinks and nibbles, photo booths, cigar rolling, and of course the champagne bar perched on the costume of our performer.
    Their official blog about it- with fabulous pics!

    Mad Science themed event at the Exploratorium

    Our favorite Entertainment Agency client Entire Productions brought us in as part of a highly customized Entertainment package for a corporate event at the Exploratorium in San Francisco. Entire Productions worked closely with the client to come up with the beaker skirt concept and then we got to bring it to life!

    It was a Mad Science theme and all the catering staff were in lab coats. We got to create a futuristic new costume and bring out a Champagne Skirt specifically designed/created to carry glass beakers- which can be used to hold flowers or messages- or in this case bubbly with flavored liquers. More on our Champagne Skirts

This is what we love to do- have fantastical characters that also serve practical functions.

    Great Gatsby Party at Mountain Winery

    We were brought in under Rick Herns Productions on a gorgeous Gatsby themed corporate soiree up on the hill in Saratoga at the Mountain Winery.
    As always Rick Herns did an incredible job with all the Decor. He has props and decor for almost every theme and custom made some new ones for this.

    Our Gatsby Showgirl Champagne Lady was a greeter and bubbly hostess… making guests feel special as they arrived. Rick paired her with 2 other character actors that gave out “money” for the gambling tables and hair decorations for the ladies to get into the theme.
