Kids' birthday parties can be elaborate affairs.
There's usually a theme and parents go all-out to make that theme happen. Sometimes that involves hiring someone to come and be part of the entertainment. Gone are the days of magicians or clowns with the capacity to give children nightmares for the rest of their lives. Now there are people who make a living bringing the characters kids know (and actually love) to life.
We're not talking cheap costumes, either. From mermaids to Disney princesses, these entertainers are professionals. At one little boy's superhero-themed birthday party, however, the impersonator playing Spider-Man went above and beyond the call of duty to make his day special.
