Kellie Fischer DuBose is owner and founder of Kellie’s Characters. She Graduated from Fontainebleau High School, of Mandeville Louisiana, in 2004 and later moved to Lafayette Louisiana to study interior design at the University of Lafayette. In 2011, she and her husband discovered she was pregnant with their first child, and decided to move home to Mandeville Louisiana to be close to family and friends.
When their son was 6 months old, Kellie began to plan her son’s first birthday party. Being unsuccessful at finding a company to provide a Mickey Mouse to appear at her son’s birthday, she decided to take matters into her own hands by having the costume made for herself. With the costume bought and paid for she began to brainstorm about the possibilities of creating a children’s entertainment business of her own. Luckily she had married into a family that was oozing with talent. Her sister-in-Laws Olivia and Rebecca DuBose had the looks, stage presence, and the pipes she was looking for to get things rolling actor wise. Once a few costumes were custom made to fit them, Kellies Characters was born on April 1st of 2013.
After beating the pavement and doing many free gigs to promote the business Kellie’s Characters was able to grown into the business it is today. With over 65 different characters and 15 people on staff, Kellie and her team are able to bring smiles across Louisiana!!
