Good news, everyone!

More Gross Stuff Around the Office

We don’t have a particularly large team here at FrightProps. Fortunately, what we lack in numbers we make up for in character.

Cone Heads

Poor little shop-dog Kensey has a hurt eyeball and needs to wear a dumb-looking cone for the next 3 weeks. She’s a bundle of cute, depressing and hilarious!
