Inspired by the Carnivale fashion and the charisma of superheroes like Batman and Robin, Flash Fire specialises with fire. From fire eating, fire tracing and manipulation of small tools.

A great act to have at your next Carnivale/Samba, Mardi Gras or Jungle/Tribal event!

MARKUS FROST MIGHT:
Wisdom, whimsy and wonder are the spells this artic wizard casts on his audience through a diverse range of enchanted trinkets. Hailing from the icy cold lands, Frost Might tries to warm the hearts of his audiences while braving the raging weathers of the Australian heat. Whether he is summoned for a medieval themed event or aiding his good friend Santa Claus, Frost Might helps kids discover the magic within themselves with his array of juggling and LED acts. Think of Mark Frost for your next Medieval, Fantasy, Christmas, Winter Themed, and family events!

ELF CHARACTER:
This elf can 'sleigh' boredom with a few simple circus tricks and a smile! Twirling with Christmas coloured LED lights including staves, poi, juggling balls and S shaped staves along with silver and clear baubles all the while wishing patrons happy holidays and letting kids know to be on their best behaviour!

PIRATASENOR & FERDINAND THE BULL:
"Olé"! Get ready for some fun for the kids. PirataSenor and his bull Ferdinand love to run around and chase each other when holding their red poi flags. Either a one man bull fight or getting a volunteer to hold Ferdinand/the flag, the two can be seen running into the distance, a great touch for your next Mexican/Spanish Family Fiesta event!

ARRR SRIRACHA (FIRE SKULL):
Reawaken the imagination of your guests when they cross the thin border between the spirit world and the world of the living. With plenty of tricks and a slightly creepy demeanour, this fire inspired sugar skull character will definitely get your bones moving throughout the night. With a large range of amazing fire, circus, juggling and LED performances, this character is a must have at your next Halloween, Day of The Dead and/or Mexican event!

APARATO (CLOCKWORK SUGAR SKULL):
Appearing at nearly every Steampunk Ball since 2011 in Perth, it was only a matter of time before Pirateman began a new alias. Within the depths of his gallows gears ticked away and with many years of engineering and circuitry, he has created an automaton that does basically what he does. There are still a few g-g-g-glitches in the system and some rusted parts, but other than that this clockwork vaudevillian is r-ready to p-p-p-p-perform! What more could you want for your upcoming Steampunk, Fantasy, Vintage, Sci-Fi or Halloween event!

JARETH THE GOBLIN KING:
A cosplay character with the same name as the goblin king from the 1986 movie the Labyrinth. Performs crystal ball contact juggling. Jareth also has some “helping hands” puppets stashed away but primarily focuses on being the villain and offering gifts not suitable for girls who take care of screaming babies.
