Cary Campbell Lopes
I met Cary many moons ago when I was asked to model in one of her fantastic costumes. Cary and her husband, Paulo, own an unreal company called Paintertainment, a company that takes your ideas to enhance an event and literally paints them into real life. You’ll need to check out their website to really grasp what I’m saying here.
What’s more inspiring than that? A couple duo that work together creating the most extravagant costumes.. and still adore each other!
Cary is one of those people that make your life more colorful… in all ways. From her badass cherry red hair to her bubbly, hilarious, kind and so very talented self, she is truly one of a kind. She has proven to the world that you can do whatever it is you set your mind to, so long as you work at it and never give up.
It can’t be easy owning and running the company they do, but they do it with such grace and are such huge inspirations in my life.
If you’re ever looking for an extra “oomph” for your events, be sure to check out their website and give them a shout! Who knows, maybe I’ll even be in the costume!
