My Princess & Character Parties
Founder & Owner
Hi! My name is Kristie Patton, and I have been in the Princess Party industry for almost 14 years now! It all started in Dallas, where I moved with my husband when we first got married and had our 4 children. Katelynn is 19, Kylee is 18, Will is 14, and Zach is 11. However, I am very proud to say that I was born and raised right here in Oklahoma! While living in Dallas when my girls were about 3 and 4 years old, they were in love with anything and everything princess. It was then that I began researching ways to have a very special princess party for them. So, what did I do… I found a princess party business in a magazine and hired a princess! After the party, my husband gave me some encouraging words on how I should get in the business and be a part of making dreams come true for other children too! So that is where it started! I became a princess and did princess parties there for 5 years. We then moved back to Oklahoma (yay!!!), and I have been doing princess parties here with My Princess Party ever since! I truly enjoy being a part of making dreams come true!
Hi! My name is Ryan Lirley. I'm a recent Business Major graduate, and I currently work at the Underground Coffee. I'm a self-taught makeup artist, face-painter, and cosplayer.
I've worked as a gymnastics coach and as a tutor, and have always loved working with kids because they tell the funniest stories! I can't wait to bring some magic to your party or event!
My name is Sam Musser, and I am pursuing a degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Oklahoma. I am from Edmond, Oklahoma where I spent most of my childhood and young adulthood playing music or sports, but in my free time, I would escape into my favorite Marvel movies and comic books. My favorite superheroes have to be Spider-man and Captain America, and I vividly remember sneaking into the first Tobey McGuire Spider-man movie with my brothers as I was really young, and since then I have absolutely loved all superhero fandom. I enjoy being my characters’ because I remember how much I loved them growing up and how I saw them as role models that grew beyond true expectations. I know it’s a big contribution to the person that I am today.
My name is Ryan Thornton and I am currently a senior at Southwestern Christian University studying Sports Management. I currently coach at Tribe Cheer, where I get to help teach and watch athletes grow. Growing up I was an only child, and I idolized princesses and superheroes. Watching the movies made me feel like I was a part of something and I wanted to impact younger people just like they impacted me. The excitement and joy that comes to a child or even an adult when they see their favorite princess or superhero is a feeling like I’ve never experienced before. I have a blast getting to dress up and watch people’s faces light up. The people who work in this company are just as amazing as well, everyone loves what they do. It is a big family that I adore being a part of.
Hello! My name is Colton Owens, I am a student at Southwestern Christian University as well as a Collegiate male Cheerleader. I love working with kids and spent a year as a gymnastics coach teaching kids classes. Therefore, the fact that I get to Make kids happy as my job is amazing! Some of my hobbies include tumbling and doing flips! I think a major part of that is because I have always loved superheroes, especially Spider-Man. During my childhood, I spent more time in a Spider-Man costume than actual clothes and I got in trouble more than once for bringing it to school! My princess party has given people an opportunity for creating amazing childhood memories and I’m lucky to be a part of that!
My name is Brittany McClanahan. I go to the University of Oklahoma, and I am pursuing a biology pre-med degree with a minor in chemistry. I am probably the biggest Disney fan!

I am a current student at Rose State with the intention of becoming a Doctor of Physical Therapy. I have been a ballroom dance instructor of 13 years, and have recently been involved as a professional instructor for Dancing for a Miracle (Oklahoma City’s version of Dancing with the Stars, where all of the proceeds are donated to the Children’s Hospital Foundation). I am currently training in theatre arts and acrobatic dance lifts. I am a model and actor, and have appeared in numerous commercials and on billboards. I have had a love for origami and paper-folding all my life! I am passionate about the study of the mind, communication and interpersonal relationships. I feel like a kid at heart and my greatest strength is my imagination. My favorite superheroes are Ironman and Superman. When I was a young child, my mother told me I was going to be receiving a secondhand Superman suit from my cousin. I was super-stoked, and thoughts of flying in my new costume consumed my mind. Upon putting on the suit and trying to jump off the sofa, however, I realized it didn’t actually give me superpowers. So, I had to do my flying with my imagination!

It has always been my dream to be a princess and now I get to be one and bring joy to all the kids I meet. I would be honored to come to your child’s party and make their dreams come true!
