Halloween Laser Lights!

scorpion_-dual_6
You already know from those late nights at the disco that laser lights add fluidity and movement to a venue, encouraging people to socialize and get dancin’! And if you use them in a haunt, you’re certainly aware that laser lights for haunted houses add an eerie and almost supernatural effect that can generate anxiety as well. They’re great for evil laboratory scenes, make super cool alien abduction effects, and add extra depth to those UV painted rooms. But actually there are tons of cool ways to use lasers that sometimes people forget about!

TransWorld 2016 blew our mutated minds! We had a blast hanging out with our best pals in the universe and enlightening haunter after haunter with our new How-To Workshop! Our cash & carry booth was busier than ever – so busy, in fact, that we ran out of a few super low-priced items! Bah!

That’s why we decided to drop our prices on a few select essentials for just a week only – from March 31st to April 7th, save some dough on some of our TransWorld favorites.

Horrornaments: Your New Favorite Christmas Ornaments!

horrornaments_newsletter

Mourning the passing of Halloween isn’t easy for most of us. Realizing that special season that we truly belong in isn’t going to be coming around again for a WHOLE YEAR is fairly daunting. It’s enough to bow your head, sigh, and decide to just give in to the whole holiday spirit. May as well bake a ham, buy a Santa hat and go knocking on doors to sing happy songs to the neighbors you hardly know, right?

We here at FrightProps totally get it. We do. But that doesn’t mean we’re on board with the idea. We’re haunters. Halloween freaks. Horror nerds. I mean, heck – our name is FrightProps, would you really expect us to fall in line with this whole happy holidays thing?

Nah, not us. Nope. Instead, we’ll be creating our own horrific holiday creations and just blending in a little Halloween. One of the ways we’ll be doing it is with these freakin’ awesome horror ornaments – or should we say…HORRORNAMENTS?

badclown_5a0f8a2e-53f5-4a18-b8c0-38643804983f_largeaxe_1024x1024chainsaw_1024x1024coffin_1024x1024jack1_1024x1024

Instead of spicing up your holidays with cinnamon and nutmeg, do something a little different this year. Cover your tree in coffins, jack-o’-lanters, severed limbs, and bloody weapons! There’s a ton of weird tree ornaments that aren’t pictured here, so head to FrightProps and give ‘em a ghoulish gander!

Mobile Packs for Haunting!

mobilepack

Us wacky weirdos at FrightProps certainly didn’t invent the haunted house. We didn’t invent fake blood and we didn’t event pneumatics. However, one thing we pride ourselves on is taking these fairly standard things and adapting them for the purposes of helping everyone creep out millions of people a year!

One of the more simple things we’ve put together is our Mobile Pack system. Whenever we go out to conventions, we usually bring a few of these with us and when people see them, they have about a million questions. So we figured we’d do a little write-up on our Mobile Packs to give you a better understanding of what these things are and how they actually work. (more…)

There’s also the option to order multiple pre-made tombstones and signs at once with the ten tombstone package or upgrade to the complete package and get a customized sign as well. There’s a ton of different styles and options – check them all out on our TOMBSTONES & GRAVEYARD section of our site! (more…)

FrightProps: Scaring Criminals

While we all work hard every single day to plan out ways to horrify our audiences, there are times that we forget that what we do is a little strange. To the average person, playing around with fake blood and trying to create realistic corpses on a budget isn’t exactly a common hobby out there. It’s funny to sit and think about how many times we’ve really frightened someone just by doing what we normally do – having a great time and loving Halloween.

Perhaps you remember a post we did a while ago about how two FrightProps employees scared an entire freight train by carrying around some gross props. While that’s a story we all love to re-telling over and over again, our pal Will Acree out in Louisville, KY recently shared our new favorite tale.

Will

 

Here’s the message that Will sent us:

“I tested some of your blood formula on a platform next to my work station in the garage (just wanted to get a feel for how it would flow) and placed the sliced piglet on it (really great looking!). Apparently, someone was trying to break in the garage the other night. I had police at my door about an hour or so later…they found my “theft deterrent system” to be both effective and hilarious. Apparently, the guy who was trying to break in called the police due to the “fresh blood everywhere.”

We lost our minds laughing when we all read that! And of course, because we had to see it for ourselves, here’s a picture of Will’s “Theft Deterrent System”:

sliced piglet

Seriously – this is the kind of comedy we only dream of! But hey, maybe this could be a new business for FrightProps! We’ll put together some packages of fake blood and sliced piglets and get some sort of late night infomercial going!

Thanks to Will for sharing his cool story! And if you happen to have something freaky and funny to tell us about, hit us up on our Facebook!

Shock Mats for Haunted Houses

Shock Mat Sale

We’ve got brand new and improved SHOCK MATS in stock! At the same affordable price, these mats now come with a power supply and retain the option to use them with a 9V battery!

That’s great for two reasons – first, we’re able to offer a better product. Second, it means we’re dropping the prices on the old model (which ONLY offers use with a 9V battery) to give a great deal on anyone who knows they’ll just need the remote capabilities of the Shock Mats!

Shock Mat

“So, what’s a SHOCK MAT?

Every trade-show, we get this question about thirty times each day. And of course, we never get tired of explaining it to Halloween enthusiasts and haunt owners alike. Why? Because, we get to watch people shock themselves! (more…)
