Thread: Help!!!

  1. #1

    Default Help!!!

    I'm looking for a talented actor to be Spiderman for a child's birthday party in July. Spiderman is his favorite of all time and I'm hoping someone can come forward to make his day extra special. I'm looking to purchase a costume online so the sooner the better as I will need measurements before I order it. Here's hoping that two months is enough time to find someone brave enough to do this and to get it all organized. Ofcourse this will be a paid gig and the costume will be yours to keep, hopefully so that you can come back for the next couple of birthdays.

    I have mentioned this to my grand-son-in-law as he has quite a few "geeky" friends into the movie genre, if anything materializes I shall let you know. Nightingale, please, PLEASE, let me go to your next costume party?

    I really can't see a search for Spiderman on this forum having a happy ending.

    Now, if this kid was a Homer Simpson fan, you could probably muster a small army for a full scale invasion! Of course, you will have to hire extra security guards to protect the little guy's birthday cake, so there would be an added expense to going this route.

    Keep it in mind, as an emergency back-up plan!

    Still looking for someone with enough senses about them to make a child's birthday wish come true. Even if you're a flat chested small framed woman, as long as you can pull off the acting, please let me know.

    No luck at all trying to find a slender and talented enough spiderman. I had a couple of people call me, one person was a crazy fired up Italian kid that thought he was Elvis, and the other was a short hunch backed butch looking woman with really short hair that could have passed as a man but her voice was too nasal. she smiled too much and her laugh was annoying. I guess I'm gonna go with the inflatable jumpers to entertain the children. Thanks for nothing soonet.

    So, you're pissy because there are no children's entertainers available to meet your needs?

    Go rent a costume and do it yourself. Bam. A new career.

    Can I have their phone numbers? Coincidentally I am throwing a duel birthday party for a child and his Grandma. To save money I am combining parties but he loves Quasimodo and she loves Elvis. I will provide sideburns for both. Thanks a bunch in advance this is fantastic.
    The cat didn't come back the very next day but he does check in every now and then.

    Were you aware Quasimoto rang the bells by slamming his face into them? A friend and I were walking one day and Quasimodo was coming toward us the the chap with me asked who that was. I replied I did not know his name but his face rang a bell........................
