I have been cosplaying (dressing up as characters) for more than eleven years. I work at Walt Disney World, so I am rather familiar with the treatment little princesses and princes deserve! I have several characters I can come meet and greet as, and I just love spending time with children! I'm also a singer, if that helps, so besides meet and greets I can perhaps do some performing for the kids. :)
$50 per half hour.
$10 extra if the party consists of more than 10 kids.
$10 extra if the party consists of only kids 3 and younger (because let me tell you how hard that age group is, haha.)
$15 travel fee if distance exceeds 20 miles (+10 every additional 30 miles).
Both the little girls and parents enjoyed having "Elsa" at the birthday party. She is very engaging with the little ones. I highly recommend her.
The children and adults really enjoyed the experience! I gave her 5 stars because she engaged the children in a caring and compassionate manner. She stayed in character and the children are convinced that Elsa came to the party! Thank you for doing such and amazing job!
She was always in communication with me which made me feel more confident in her.
Quick response and all the kids loved her. She was in character the whole time and dotted on the kids.
I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
Couldn't have asked for anything more. Hideyo maintained excellent communication with me leading up to and after the event. She was very flexible with arrangements and requests. My daughter does not warm up to strangers easily, but she was smitten with Elsa from the moment she waltzed in the door. Hideyo was playful and at ease with the children even when they swarmed her with hugs and questions. She played the part beautifully and the smiles on everyone's faces will be remembered for times to come.
Everyone loved her, grown ups AND children! I was told that she was the best part of the party!
Hideyo promptly arrived at my four year olds birthday with excitement and ready to e terrain! The children were enthralled with her costume and beautiful voice! She even mailed my little a package after the birthday to say thank for inviting her and my little princess was thrilled to have recieved a little note from the real Elsa!
Our daughter had a great time with the "real" Ariel! Fabulous performer.
We have an incredibly shy 3 year old, however I'm pretty sure she found a new bestfriend today. Our daughter doesn't warm up to anybody overly quick, but Ariel was so far beyond kind, loving and nurturing, that our little one was in tears when it was time for the princess to go back to the ocean.
Thank you for the memories you created today.
She did an amazing job, I had toddlers that have very short attention spans but she was really nice and patient and the party had a very relaxed go with the flow feel. She was good at paying special attention to the birthday girl who has been talking about Elsa ever since. Thank you so much for coming and making my birthday girls special day amazing!
Hideyo Mochimo did such an incredible job as Elsa for my daughter's 5th bday party! She was so much fun, great with the children, lovely voice, very creative, looked Gorgeous as Elsa, even has the most beautiful big blue eyes too. All the girls just loved here and all the time she spent with them. She is so friendly, easy to work with and affordable! You don't have to break the bank to have a fun authentic character come to your kids bday party with Hideyo Mochimo. Skip the corporate middle man, hire her directly through GigSalad. She also gave my daughter the most thoughtful hand written bday card and gift as well. She engaged all the kids so well and she even brought her own ipod with speakers so that they all could sing and dance together. It was so much fun! She worked at Disney Land for 4 years and it really shows. She was a true delight, so professional, and incredibly kind with such a warm smile!! Hire her ASAP!
She was amazing with the kids and my daughter is still telling everyone about Ariel visiting. The costume was right on and she was able to answer the kids as if she really had just walked out of the movie. She was professional and prepared and I couldn't be happier! I got calls from the other moms wanting to know about her!

What to Expect
Having worked at Disney for two years, I know how to act like I walked right out of the movie! My favorite thing to do with the little ones are read alongs - the way their eyes light up is just wonderful! I also have been singing for half my life if a song is necessary, and I just love playing games with little ones, too! Hide n go seek, tag, musical chairs, ANYTHING! And, of course, taking pictures. I love just making those special keepsakes for little ones to cherish forever.
Like I said, I dress up as Disney Princesses and love meeting and greeting with children! Coming from a Disney background, I've been told I'm amazing at getting into character and improvising stories with the little ones.
I'm a very eccentric and outgoing girl, so I'm honestly fine with doing anything upon discussion. Most common is just showing up and taking pictures with the little ones, but I can read stories, sing, or just participate in the party spending time with the adorable kiddos!
Characters I Do: Ice Queen, Mermaid Princess, Long-Haired Princess, Princess Swan, Disgusted Emotion, French Peasant Princess (Those were hard to name, oh goodness.)
Additional Booking Notes
