Princess visits for Barnsley youngsters

By Mike Cotton, Town Reporter Tuesday 4th March 2014

A BEAUTIFUL princess has been making surprise appearances at little girls' birthday parties across Barnsley.

Laura Davies runs fancy dress business CopyCat Costumes, and launched a sideline in dressing up herself as a princess to surprise children for birthday parties and other special occasions.


She got the idea for the princess visits when her friend asked her to dress up as a princess for her daughter.

"I arrive usually in the second hour of a party, when the children have settled, and I can only stay an hour. That's part of the princess theme - when the hour's over, the princess disappears.

"I never intended to work with children, but I absolutely love it. It's brilliant."
