Our Favorite Environment Scares

Ah, the walking stick insect. Perhaps one of nature’s greatest marvels – specially designed to blend into the scenery for the purposes of defense. Can’t fight what you can’t see, can you?

Spotlight: When Hinges Creak, Haunted House Hardware!

When people ask me what I do, the response is always the same – “wow, I guess I never thought about the fact that these haunted houses have to buy their stuff from somewhere.” What we do here at FrightProps is certainly a niche market. Selling haunted house supplies from vampire teeth to motion platforms definitely isn’t a common line of work.

FrightProps Is Your Halloween and Haunted House One-Stop Shop!

evil clown

Maybe you knew this already, but we work with a lot of people in a lot of different industries. It’s kind of the way our company was built – one day some dude named Doug, a haunt-builder himself, rubbed his temples in confusion and said, “why isn’t there one place where I can buy all the stuff I need for Halloween and haunted house supplies?” (more…)

5 LED Lighting Myths DEBUNKED!

 

68DHEF6YYVnxeau5KSz414gSatzYzGy_PPOrC3-RyikWhen it comes to LED lighting, a lot of people think getting as many lights for as cheap as possible is the best way to go.  But that’s about the same idea as buying fast food cheeseburgers as opposed to going to buying one at a good restaurant. Sure – they taste pretty good and they’ll get you by (especially if you’re on a budget), but you absolutely notice the difference when you step it up a bit.

It’s the same concept with higher-end LED fixtures. Products like our Nano Spots are an excellent and totally economic solution, but there’s a reason we also offer higher end products. Invest in the right thing from the start and you’ll end up saving yourself money.

To hammer this point home, we’ll take a look at some of the myths that keep people on the “the cheaper, the better” school of thought. (more…)

Our New Handheld Air Horns

ghoul zombie

Greetings, boys and ghouls! This manic monday, we figured we’d take a moment out of your day to discuss something which is VERY EXCITING – to us, at least. But probably to a lot of you haunters as well!

 

Recently, we partnered with a company named after one of our favorite Ozzy Osbourne songs – Shot In The Dark Scare Tools!

We can all agree that having a good haunt means creating an immersive environment where your patrons/victims get lost in what’s going on. In order to do that, you undoubtedly have to take the time to properly decorate your halloween haunt. But decorations aren’t the end all of the process, are they? Everyone’s been inside of a haunt where the scenery and environments looked great, but for some reason the haunt was mysteriously lacking that feeling of urgent terror.

Breaking News From FrightProps!

cat in battle armor

Ladies and gentlemen, to celebrate the beginning of the work week, we have a very exciting Monday announcement for you! After much deliberation and consulting our official Halloween think-tank, FrightProps is revolutionizing the way we we do business!

You see, running a company that provides Halloween decorations, pneumatic props, fake blood, and all the nuts and bolts in between isn’t easy. And it especially isn’t easy to do without some sort of terms and conditions.

Who would do such a thing to such a noble creature? A mad scientist? Some barbaric beast?

FrightProps Now Proudly Carries Hot Wire Foam Factory Products

FoamGravestone

 

Look, I’m not about to dog on anyone that goes out and buys a ton of pre-made products for their haunted house or haunted yard. Heck, we proudly build and sell our own animatronic skeletons and other scary creatures every single day. But there’s something magical about rolling up the sleeves on your stained hooded sweatshirt and getting your hands covered in fake blood. As the punk community says: D.I.Y. or DIE!

But seriously folks – we know not everyone is too handy with a hammer or great at using pneumatic cylinders and we respect that. Still, we always try to encourage all of our customers to challenge themselves and learn something about making Halloween props. One of the best places to start is by carving haunted house scenery like gravestones and statues using foam. It’s a lot cheaper to mess up a thing of foam rather than to accidentally set fire to an animated werewolf prop.

20% Off All Masks! SIX DAYS ONLY!

You smile at your annoying co-workers as they pass by your desk. You say “thank you” to the check-out clerk that ignored you when you asked them how their day was. You nod your head and tell everyone your day is “fine” after locking your keys in your car.

Truly, aren’t we all wearing a mask of sorts? Like, a metaphysical one, man.

galaxy

Nah. Not really. After all, we’re a Halloween store. Masks to us mean vampires, zombies, and crazy mutant rednecks. Heck, a couple holes in a white sheet is a mask as far as we’re concerned. Luckily for you, we’re not a fabric store. We don’t sell sheets. We sell masks – and we’re offering a heck of a deal on them, too. You see, our mask prices are already marked down, but from February 13th to February 16th, we’re going to give you an opportunity for record-smashing savings.
