So, it may be time for us to throw a TLO Princess Party…

Yesterday, I was browsing through some local YouTube videos and stumbled across one of a girl dressed up like the Little Mermaid. She was promoting something called "My Princess Party of Oklahoma." Apparently, it's a business that sends costumed Disney characters to your kid's birthday party.
Now you can have your favorite princess, prince, or character come to your birthday party to play games, tell stories, take pictures, and have ever-lasting memories! We have one of the largest selection of princesses and characters to choose from in the state of Oklahoma!! Choose your princess, prince or character and your package and schedule your party today!!
I brag about this every now and then, but I can say with about 98% confidence that I don't have any children. That means I get to basically do whatever I want, whenever I want, and not feel guilty about it later. It's pretty awesome, but it does have a couple of drawbacks. For example, I'm going to die alone. That blows. Also, I had no clue that you could rent a hot princess to be your friend. That's more fun than getting stoned and watching Yo Gabba Gabba. How much does it cost?!
The Basic Princess Package price is $195, in which she will spend approximately one hour for up to 15 participating children (if there are over 15 participating children, there is an additional fee of $10 per child). This includes the story, games, treasure hunt, face painting/make-up/nails, party favors for everyone, and a princess gift for the bday girl!
If you would like to add a little more to the party, you might want to choose the Premium Princess Package for $235. Your princess will be there for approximately one and a half hours!!! It will consist of everything that is in the basic package, but your princess will also bring a princess craft for everyone, where they would either get to decorate their own princess crown with princess foam stickers and jewels, or make their own beaded necklaces and you could have your choice for everyone to get a balloon animal or you could choose for the birthday girl to receive an additional birthday gift of a pink crown-shaped princess pillow, autographed by the princess!
If you would like for your princess to stay for 2 hours, this is the Grande Package for $250 and would include everything in the Basic and Premium Package, but your Princess could also stay for cake and presents too!
A Customized Princess Package for $195 might be the party for you,in which your princess would be there for the amount of time you choose and this is also a great choice if you just want to simply customize your own party.
Remember when those guys placed a Craigslist ad offering to pay a clown $50 to get drunk with them? You don't? Well, it happened in 2008 and those guys were awesome. It makes me wonder how much they'd pay to get drunk with a princess. $100? $200?? $300???
Seriously, this group is missing a massive marketing opportunity. Instead of focusing on kids and desperate parents, they need to go after the bar crowd. Name me a bachelor or bachelorette party that wouldn't pool together $200 to have the Little Mermaid and Cinderella get drunk and party with them for a couple of hours. That would be awesome. Hell, I may contact them about co-hosting some TLO Trivia Nights. I'd like to get the chick from Aladdin so we can sing "A Whole New World" together.
Anyway, here's the video that originally got my attention. It's of the Little Mermaid chick showing off her new mermaid seashell bra:
Well, that's some authentic craftsmanship.
Anyway, there are plenty of other awkward videos and photos of these parties on the internet. For example, you can have Sleeping Beauty come sleep in your bed:
Cinderella leave her shoe:
Or have the Little Mermaid and make out with the world's scrawniest prince in your lawn:
Yeah, that's one thing I forgot to add. They have dudes that do this, too. It doesn't have the same impact. It's easier for a girl to look like a princess than it is for an OCU musical theatre major to look like Thor:
Or, uh, Superman:
When Superman has a camel toe, there's a problem.
Anyway, if you want to book a princess or the world's least impressive superhero for your kid's birthday party or guy's night out, I guess go over to their website. Tell them you heard about it on TLO. Maybe they'll give me a discount for a trivia night.
