SickHouse Sisters is a variety act performance and art studio. Our members are a few dedicated artists and performers who love to live their craft.
We provide unique makeup services such as body painting, face painting, henna, and character makeup for many applications such as parties, weddings, festivals, films, photo shoots, or fashion shows. Our makeup has been featured in plays (such as Essential Theater's Bat Hamlet), and several short films and web series' (including the Uncanny X-men web series, and the 24 hour film festival's Crimes of Passion). It has also featured in many parades, conventions, photo shoots, and gallery openings where we have performed and been seen. We have two available artists with years of makeup experience in the industry and airbrush availability, and up to three with experience in all sorts of face painting, henna, and crafts.
But on the stage and in the crowds is really where we love to be, and so we also offer our talented performance art, including fire spinning, snake charming, stilt walking, and character/crowd interaction.
While SickHouse Sisters is in it's nature a dark themed studio, specializing in Gothic, steampunk, and burlesque styles, we are versatile and avid costumers and can accommodate any theme from princess to pirate, and even zombies! We are a pleasure for adult events, but we are also very child friendly, and can happily keep to whatever appropriate rating is established, be it "G" or "R". We are seasoned actors in entertaining crowds and parties and we love kids, so whatever the age of your party goers, we can find a character that will inspire and entertain. We currently have only origional characters available, with limited expansion into more well known characters such as Belle, Princess Fiona, Scarlet Witch, and a few others. We are currently an all female cast, and we do not offer mascot-type characters.
Our principle members have many years experience as monsters and characters in various haunted attractions (such as Netherworld, Folklore, and Nightmare's Gate) and in several short films. They also are jump stilt performers, able to walk, sprint, and bounce through crowds and parades. We also have available some lovely snakes for Tam and Fayth's snake dancing in modern belly dance, or steampunk/burlesque style.
Tam Songdog has been fire performing in multiple disciplines for over 13 years, and can use fire poi, fans, staff, and fingers. She can also spin while on jump stilts.
We will make your event one to remember! Whether we are the characters, or we are making YOU into characters, we are an experience you won't forget! Let us wrap you into our world of mystery, art, and twisted delight!
