- A Brief History of Awesome Possum Kids Superheroes
When Jessica first contacted me to enquire about my Awesome Possum Kids Superheroes party packages in Brisbane, we talked about her to be 5 year old son who is a big fan of everything superheroes. She told me about how he loves wearing his superhero outfits and pretends to be different characters like superman or power ranger or his favourite spiderman. She also flicked through to me a cool little WhatsApp video of her 2 boys practicing superhero moves at the front of their house, with the younger following the steps of his older brother. It was super adorable and as always, I was looking forward to entertaining them and their friends and make everyone’s day extra special and fun. This blog post is inspired by my encounter with this lovely mum and her family from Brisbane’s Centenary Pocket, when I went there last weekend to perform for her son's 5th birthday. On Saturday I finally got to meet them at the birthday party. Spiderman was the choice of the birthday boy’s so that was me for the morning - one of my favourite superheroes too, definitely. I love performing as him for the cool moves! I climbed the fence for them - an Awesome Possum signature climb, and we got into active games and magic and balloons and dance and more action packed fun with lots of superhero tricks. It was a small group of 8 kids, all their best friends came together, it was really cute. They all loved spiderman and the show and all got super excited and very into it for the entire hour. So after all the fun superhero action we had, the next day I received a thank-you message from Jessica. She also made an awesome review for me on Google and Facebook and sent me some photos from the party and you could see the birthday boy was over the clouds. And then in another WhatsApp message she asked me how I got into my kids party superhero career and the whole Awesome Possum Kids Superheroes entertainment gig. And I replied “you know what it’s actually a good story but I will tell you all about it later on when I’m back from the day’s party shows”. So really she just inspired to write this, the story of Alijah Forrest and a brief history of Awesome Possum Kids Superheroes! It all started a few weeks after I moved to Oz from London to study at university. A friend of a friend invited me to a house party where I met this lovely couple who were performers, doing kids superhero shows. She was doing all the girl party princess characters, fairy and super-girl and he performed as spiderman, batman, pirate and all the other boy party characters. They told me all about their gigs and how much fun it was and mentioned that the agent that they work with is currently looking for new talent for boy party entertainment. I wasn't seeing it coming but I just moved here for uni and needed work and I just said I'll be happy to meet their agent. When I met with the agent from that boutique kids entertainment place it didn't take much for me to get excited over the idea of performing fun characters and get playful and active with kids at birthday parties all around town. I was particularly excited about learning all about magic and balloon twisting and have new skills to perform with. In the following 3 months I was training with them. I joined other performers on their kids party show adventures, I observed and took notes and then I joined in the shows as a second character and began getting interactive with the other characters and the kids. I was getting really good at it, possibly because I had experience working with children before and attending drama lessons growing up. But definitely because it was fun and exciting and I was re discovering myself in a new and creative way. For an entire year I was evolving and becoming a kids party entertainer who was getting great feedback and reviews and I loved it. At the end of that year I decided to make a move to a new city to finish my studies. In 2009 I moved to Sydney to study at a design college where I did graphics and animation. The kids party agency I worked with in Melbourne weren't covering Sydney although my agent encouraged me to start my own gig there. So I did. The next 4 years in Sydney was me establishing Awesome Possum Kids Superheroes, with my own website, social media and a great deal of following. It was incredible. I was running my own show. And then, a short holiday in Brisbane made me fall in love with the place and some time after that, possibly my sense of adventure and a great deal of intuition, made me make another move, and here I was. Awesome Possum Kids Superheroes made its new home in Brisbane City, capital of the Sunshine State! Queensland was very welcoming, for one the good weather and beautiful nature and also the locals' laid back attitudes and a sense of new world city. I quickly found myself performing at kids party shows and gaining momentum in Brisbane, Gold Coast and as far as Noosa on the Sunshine Coast. It was super exciting. I was discovering new locations and making new connections. Life was a holiday. Since then, about 7 years now, Brisbane is home to Awesome Possum Kids Superheroes. I find my extensive experience in performing for kids on the many platforms including stage shows, and with an extra teaching qualification and more experience, Awesome Possum is now a local legend and a trusted brand. They call me the 'Pied-Piper' of kids! Definitely a massive compliment and a testimony. Brisbane is my city and my home and I have to say, it is a truly exciting place to be. The city is grandly up and coming, growing and expanding in many ways, and you can just feel fresh, creative, good vibes and oozing energy all around the place. The demographics are vibrant, multicultural and the place is supportive and fun. What makes Awesome Possum so unique and exclusive I think is, I've kept it authentic to myself as a performer and creative. Yeh I've had a few attempts training new performers and collaborating with others, but I find that keeping it exclusive to me and not turning it into an agency as such just for the sake of business, retains the core essence of the experience and keeps it truly special for me and my audience. I'm truly passionate about what I do with Awesome Possum Kids Superheroes and making dreams come true is the name of my game! And if you are looking for that extra special, extra fun, extra zing of kids entertainment - talk me! And I'm going to finish with a wee little marketing tagline for you lol .... If it's Awesome Possum - It's kids Entertainment by a PRO! Thanks for reading my brief history. Yours with a WAM BAM!

- A Weekend of Kids Parties in Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast
Hola friends, how was your weekend? Hope you had a fantastic one! Alijah the Awesome Possum here.. the performer who does all your favourite kids party characters and magic shows. Awesome Possum is of course my artist name. This weekend only just past, I’ve had the pleasure to present and deliver some five adventure shows across Brisbane and on the Sunshine Coast! I thought I might tell you a little bit about them and how fun it was and also for you to get the picture of how I perform and engage the kids in my adventure shows! My show itinerary began on a Friday afternoon, presenting Minecraft Game Hosting party in Norm Buchan Park in Bardon. It was a birthday party for a boy who was turning 6 and he invited his whole class for his birthday. Cute!! I also like the idea of kids birthday parties after school on the green in your local park. They are just so exciting for the kids, bring parents together and builds connections in the community, and they’re casual enough, kinda like picnic style. After doing several shows with the official Minecraft cardboard box headpiece of Steve (the Hero), I now deliver my Minecraft parties as the game host! The box really limited my act, especially it made communication with the kids challenging. My new Minecraft character is pretty much a cool Minecraft gamer fan (attired in Minecraft fan outfit) who engages and inspires the group with fun interactive Minecraft activities and adventure games, with mini plots incorporated throughout the activities, musical game and challenges, magic and giveaways. A unique way for kids to play and get active, well-structured and extremely entertaining. On Saturday morning I got up early and travelled from home in Brisbane to the Sunshine Coast for my ninja show I did for a boy who turned 7. The party was at Lillyponds Park across from Mapleton library. It’s an awesome spot for kids party and a picnic if you are local to this area of the coast. My ninja show is an active ninja training adventure with games and balloon ninja swords, fitness activities, running games, hide n seek, basic martial arts and more. This show incorporate entertaining narratives about a villain called Robo-Panda (an oversized panda bear mutant created by an evil scientist) and the little ninjas are assigned to a mission – to protect the emperor’s palace and the villages around it. The concept sparks the imagination and with active games and play it makes the adventure even more fun! On the same day I travelled back to Brisbane to Stafford Community Centre for my second show, this time as Spiderman. It was a joint birthday party for 4 boys, all turning 5. All their friends from preschool came to the party and we had the best time! It was very high energy as each birthday boy was keen to be the center of attention in their own cute little ways. It was an awesome superhero adventure. On Sundy I had 2 more shows and that was exciting, a ninja adventure kids party in Cox Park in Lota in the eastern Brisbane suburbs and then, a Captain America kids party in Shailer Park for a 5 year old little boy who I did a party for last year as well when he turned 4! I love getting invited second time (and sometimes even third and for one girl on the Sunshine Coast I was invited to entertain her 5 birthdays), and visit the house and to see how the birthday child changed in a year, grown a little more, got taller and of course, the family is always good to see again! Seriously now, being a kids birthday party entertainer and a superhero, is all about bringing the magic and creating sweet memories and dreams come true! I mean it’s the best day of the year, right?! Time to celebrate!! Awesome Possum Kids Superheroes presents amazing superheroes and characters for your kids parties. My specialty is being a versatile performer who can pull off just about any character for your kids party. If you can’t currently find the character you want on my website just have a chat to me and I will see what I can do. I have created special requests characters, I can hire costumes and I love being challenged with new characters and birthday party themes. I am a Brisbane kids party entertainer and get to the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Ipswich and Toowoomba! Call me to today and let’s plan your mazing kids party itinerary! Have an awesome day and I look forward to it! Alijah – Owner / Performer Awesome Possum Kids Superheroes
