About Balloon Chica Herself


My name is Maria Arias and I am Balloon Chica! Since 1989, I have been professionally entertaining children of all ages. I got my start portraying characters like Minnie Mouse and Baby Bop for an entertainment group. However, I felt limited and decided to venture out on my own. And thus, Balloon Chica was born!

I am proud to be an entertainer. I have always had a special interest in balloon twisting and face painting, but Balloon Chica has allowed me to expand my services to include talents such as glitter tattoos, sandy candy, juggling and plate-spinning. There is no greater joy than the expression on a child's face when they get their plate spinning by themselves.

When you have Balloon Chica at your party, you can expect it to be a blast! I truly love what I do and share that love of these with your special guests. They will leave your party wishing it wasn’t over.



Tattoos are waterproof, 100% toxic free and safe for the skin. I create my own stencils to customize for your party and with a variety of  tattoos, everyone at your party can show off their personal style!


I only use top quality face paints from Wolfe, Fusion, Global and Paradise and cosmetic grade glitter. I am able to paint approximately 15 full faces per hour. All face paints wash off easily with soap and water. I have plenty of designs for boys and girls!
