What our clients say...

Adjwoa, Texas, USA

"I loved the road march (Kadooment Parade). The whole experience of getting my Carnival makeup done, wearing an outfit I would never wear...oh my gosh, I just marched 7 miles in the sun dancing...the whole experience was fun.  I gotta learn how to put on sunscreen though; I forgot (lol)!"
