  • I always loved princesses.

  • I loved watching the movies about them.

  • I loved dressing up as them.

  • My job is to make people's dreams come true.

  • I own the Los Angeles Princess Company.

  • These are all my costumes.

  • These are all the wigs.

  • I have a section for each character.

  • And then each of them has their own makeup, which is really important to me because nobody

  • naturally looks like all these characters.

  • You kind of have to know how to make yourself look like them a little bit.

  • I always thought I was going to be a professional actor, and I was for a long time, but I quickly

  • found that this was the thing that people were willing to pay for.

  • And I still kind of consider myself a real actor, but I can't really, like, go on auditions

  • all the time anywhere or anything like that.

  • My specialty is really performing.

  • So I always try to really bring the character to life.

  • I used to think it was really extreme to wear colored contacts for this job.

  • But kids notice everything.

  • This is Cinderella.

  • Alright, I think we're ready to go.

  • I need coffee or else I might not make it through the day.

  • I'm not selling myself as a Disney princess.

  • Cinderella's in the public domain.

  • Not every other character is.

  • But I don't use their copyrighted names.

  • But I play by the rules.

  • Going into my first party.

  • Hello everyone!

  • Wow, that dress is beautiful.

  • Wow, I think it's even lovelier than mine.

  • Rapunzel.

  • Okay, I probably will have to ask someone to help me.

  • I usually do.

  • Hi, could you do me a big favor and zip me up?

  • What?

  • And zip me up.

  • Oh, sure.

  • Thank you so much.

  • I just can't do it myself.

  • Thank you so much.Yeah, sure.

  • You're a pro.

  • Hi, princess!

  • Oh, my goodness I'm so happy to see you.

  • But then I didn't care because it was the best day ever!

  • Yay!

  • Bye, princess!

  • I am dead tired.

  • I'm not going to lie.

  • We went from North Hollywood to Tarzana, back to North Hollywood.

  • And then I had two parties in Beverly Hills very close to each other.

  • And now we're in Northridge and we are going to be done for the day after this.

  • Hi, Princess Riley!

  • Happy birthday!

  • Mother Gothel was so jealous of my hair that she stole me and put me in a tower.

  • I really try to bring the character to life.

  • With theater, it was all about me.

  • Look at me. Look at me.

  • But with this, it's like my job is to bring so much happiness to people.

  • Oh, yay!

  • Can anyone guess how we all lived?

  • Happily ever after!

  • Alright, good job!

  • It's not a job that you do forever, but I would really miss this job if one day I couldn't

  • do it anymore.

  • I'm hoping by the time I get there that I will just be tired of it.

  • But like, I haven't reached that point yet.

  • My parties start at 180 dollars an hour.

  • But a lot of that money goes back into business.

  • So this is not a job you get into if you want to be rich.

  • I definitely live very humbly, but it's worth it.

  • I'd rather be just making it by doing something I really love.

  • But definitely, it can be a little stressful.

  • I've been doing this five years already and I know that you know, my time is coming up.

  • And hopefully, when I reach that age, I'll be able to know when it's time to hang up the crown.

I always loved princesses.
