Elf-arazzi - Christmas Elf Paparazzi Characters

Snap! Flash! "Have you been naughty or nice this year?" "Look over here!"

The cutest and cheekiest Christmas party entertainment you can find! The Christmas Elf Paparazzi is great for corporate events and Christmas parties with children, and really helps propel everyone into the festive Christmas spirit!

What is the Elf-arazzi?

It's the time of the year when the North Pole is awash with excitement - anytime someone is celebrating Christmas in the world, a fleet of Elf Paparazzi - Elf-arazzi - will be arriving to take photos! Bringing them back to their North Pole magazines, the Elf-arazzi can't wait to find out how everyone feels about Christmas!

Elf-arazzi is a blend of the Applause Entertainment favourite paparazzi entertainment with the coolest, cutest, Christmas elves in town. Dressed in fantastic Christmas elf costumes, they'll be at the door of your next Christmas function or party, greeting the guests as they arrive!

Paparazzi entertainment is a tried-and-true method to kickstart an event. No matter what mood the guests arrive in, by the time they've met the paparazzi, they're guaranteed to feel fantastic and be excited for your event! Christmas Elf-arazzi adds an extra Christmassy aspect to your event - and they'll definitely get the kids giggling and having fun.

We can supply you with photos taken on the night or mix in our real professional photographers for added professionalism. Ask us about our "Live Camera Feeds" to the event inside!

Elf-arazzi performer hire is available across Australia in major capital cities: Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Adelaide, Perth, Hobart, and surrounds.

It will really set the tone for some Christmas cheer throughout the event, and is a great way to help everyone unwind after a long year. Kids will love being greeted by the friendly elves, and it's a great chance to get some family photos in as well!

How about elf-arazzi hire as promotional entertainment? When your customers are arriving at your venue for a special Christmas promotion, sale, or event, greet them with the Elf-arazzi! Then, pair the elf-arazzi with On Site Printing, and by the time customers leave, they'll be able to take home a souvenir! What a fantastic way to promote your brand!

Don't forget the other star of Christmas - Santa! Imagine the headlines now - SANTA ARRIVES TO TAKE PHOTOS WITH EVERYONE!

Perhaps you'll want to complete the picture by inviting Mrs Claus to join Saint Nick, the possibilities are endless!

Straight out of Sci-fi...

While technology advances every time we blink, but a part of us will always dream of the aesthetically stunning visions created by Tron, Back to the Future, Blade Runner and Robocop to name a few. This is exactly what we provided to our clients, who asked for a futuristic costume and entertainment design to match their futuristic theme.

Firstly, we called together four beautiful fembots, complete with aesthetics inspired by The Fifth Element, Tron, and enhanced by the wildest of our designer’s imagination. Arriving on segways, these four fembots greeted guests with their cool, sterile, mechanic appearances.

Next, we recruited an Android Magician, painting makeup designed to emulate hotchpotch headplates of an android. With matching glowing costumes, the Android Magician also rocked a pair of kicks from Back to the Future. Reminiscent of a Daft Punk character, the Android Magician performed tricks that seemed humanly impossible – almost with the magical precision of a machine.

What this event needed was entertainment that suited the unique style of the atmosphere, and required some design and performers who broke the mould.

Watch the video below to see how great it looked:

What to get when they want nothing: The Art of Gifting

What do you give to someone who wants nothing and has it all? Today, find out how you can give someone the gift of experience - a timeless present:

Some people are gift giving wizards – we all know at least one person who always seems to know exactly how to put together a gift that perfectly plucks the heartstrings. This article isn’t for those wizards – it’s for the mortals like the rest of us, who dread this time of the year, when we're stuck for gift giving ideas and the perfect present. Do you need some guidance on how to give the perfect gift? Read on:

The most treasured gift is fond memories

things end memories are forever

Remember this when you are wondering what to get someone who "has it all"

The most frustrating thing to hear from someone for whom you’re buying a present is, “I don’t really want anything”. It eliminates your options down to a box of chocolates, a gift card, or something equally impersonal and generic. What you may not have thought about, is that they said “I don’t really want any physical thing." They want something more than material goods - they want an experience!

Holiday souvenirs aren't popular because people need another snow globe - it's because they are reminded of a wonderful experience. Gifts are exactly the same – the most important thing is the experience of receiving a gift. So why not give someone an experience in gift form? Give them a favourite memory that they’ll love to retell over and over again, and still keep the intimate personal touch.

The reason that Applause Entertainment events are so popular and filled with laughter, is because we craft entertainment ideas that are larger-than-life, so guests are treated to an experience that breaks the monotony of the day-to-day. Now, you can give that unique experience as a gift to your loved ones.

Celebrate your unique relationship

inside joke

Do you have an inside joke, or a special memory? Use it for inspiration!

Presents and gifts should show your appreciation for the recipient in a way that is unique to you. The best presents are ones that are based off a shared memory or an in-joke. Remember when you went to a restaurant and came across the worst waiter in the world? Or maybe you’ve always dreamed of going to Paris? Our fun experiences give you the chance to recall those times, such as our Hoax Waiter, who will dress up as a member of the staff and be a terrible waiter, only to reveal it was all a prank later. Bring the romantic atmosphere of Paris to you with our professional accordionist to perform a sweet serenade. What other memories do you want to express in your gift?

Don't be boxed in by something in a box

use your imagination

Gifts aren't restricted to a box. Use your imagination!

Don’t be bogged down by tangible gifts. Go-to presents such as houseware, décor, or tech gadgets are fine if they have explicitly put it on a wish-list, but if you don’t have any specifics, it’s often liberating to move your scope to beyond the gift box. Have they always envied talent show contestants who can juggle? How about giving them a chance to attend a juggling workshop with the promise that they’ll juggle three balls by the end of the day? That’s bound to put a spark in their eyes.

No two experiences are the same

surprise them with something different

No one has "seen it all", not even talk show hosts. Find a way to surprise them!

Every experience is unique, and no one has "seen it all". Even if they have already had a “surprise popping out of a giant box” in their lives, there is always a way to enhance that experience. Perhaps a Marilyn Monroe impersonator pops out of the cake? Or an Elvis Presley impersonator? We have had years of experience consulting with countless types of clients to come up with entertainment ideas that creates the wow-factor, so it’s only natural that you can trust us to provide the same for your loved one’s experiences.

Share the love - and experience

 photoshoot with the whole family

Photoshoots are more fun when you can share it, with every member of the family

Gift experiences are something that can be shared, it’s a gift that keeps on giving. Applause Entertainment experiences allows the recipient to share the experience with everyone around them – like a paparazzi crowd that can greet everyone before a party, or a photoshoot for the whole family. Pay it forward, and spread some love by giving the gift of experience


We are so excited to be launching our Applause Experience gift ideas and vouchers in the coming days, just in time to make Christmas 2016 truly special. Make sure you Like our Facebook page for all the latest updates on events entertainment news and offerings.
