Hi. I'm Marty, the owner of Cathy's Characters. I started Cathy's Characters back in 2004 because I was looking to start a business and hearing horror stories from my friends about the character visits they were getting at their children's birthday parties. I couldn't believe my ears. Disgusting costumes, boring routines, lack of enthusiasm and outrageous prices. I even heard of a fairy tale princess showing up pregnant. So I said to my wife Cathy,"Let's start a costume character business with the best costumes around, character music, an exciting routine, animal balloons and an MC along with the character to run the whole thing!" My wife said,"Fine, but only on three conditions."
1) I name it after her.
2) I do all the work.
3) She keeps all the money.
So for some reason I agreed and here we are several years, 2 daughters and 100 costumes later with what I think is the best costume character business around. So if your having a character themed party for your child, give me a call. Just because you don't see your character on our website doesn't mean we dont have it. Remember, when you get a character for your child's party, the kids should run up and hug it, not run for their lives! Thanks and I hope to see you at your party.
