YOUR NEED FOR ATTENTION Your event is calling for attention to one or more things: a sense of celebration, demonstrating a new product, corporate morale, gathering attention to a tradeshow booth, etc. How can you fulfill these 'attention' needs? Click here.
Snake Oil Productions makes all of their own costumes and props, which means it can accommodate almost every theme. Mardi Gras, Black Tie, Renaissance, Futuristic, Western, Roaring 20's, Caribbean, Tropical, Safari, Edwardian, Civil War, Victorian, Spooky, Seasonal, Artsy, Wine Festival, Classic, Americana, etc. Don't see the theme you need? Perhaps this can be created for your event!

The name of your game is ATTENTION. How can you get your point across to clients, potential clients, and your own personnel? What is the most effective visual or interactive manner to demonstrate an important principle?

...and this is only a small list of what Lauren has performed in her 25 years as a professional corporate entertainment specialist.

Live "mannequins" or display: Entrepeneur Magazine featured an article about live "mannequins" in storefronts or as display. A live mannequin (a living person who is able to move like a doll, marionnette, or stand still) is an excellent choice when a business wants to garner attention but yet still feature its products. Perfect for trade shows, store windows, in-store displays, or other locations where pedestrians are paramount. Don't know if this is a good choice for your event or situation? Just ask! Lauren will be happy to help plan your best need.

Simply contact Lauren with your theme and ideas and ask her what she can offer you!
