The first official FrightProps baby!

KATHY AND BABY
We’re so proud to announce the first official FrightProps baby! Please welcome Oliver Anthony Austin Bibus, born October 18th at 2:54am! While Oliver’s parents are Kathleen (Shipping Guru, Warehouse Manager) and Scott Bibus (Creative Director), he’s definitely coming into this world with the weirdest extended family ever.

Thanks to everyone who has been so great to us this season. We knew Kathleen was one of the hardest working people on the planet, but after seeing her make sure orders got out even a few days before she had the baby, there was a minute where we were questioning if her baby would even be human!

Sure, you may have your decorations planned and a few new props that’ll make ‘em shriek, but how’s that costume coming along? Is it REALLY as scary as you think it is – or could it use a little something special?

Basement FX masks are selling fast and highly sought after – but we just got word straight from the company that there’s still time to get the sickest silicone masks before Halloween!

The 2017 FrightProps Catalog Contest!

catalog_contest_2017

Can you believe that it’s almost time for the second most magical time of the year for haunters? That’s right, ya little creeps – the 2017 FrightProps Catalog is on the horizon, jam packed full of new props, horrific technological innovations, and everything you need to make Halloween 2017 the scariest one yet!

The only thing we’re missing is COVER MODELS!

Although us fine people of the haunted house and Halloween communities are famously good-looking, we want something GENUINELY SCARY for our cover! And what could possibly be more frightening than the FRIGHTENERS OF THE FUTURE?

To enter, from now through February 24th, submit pictures of the scariest up-and-coming haunters of the future using one of our social media channels using #FrightProps2017 as a hashtag!

Maybe the scariest future haunter is your two year old cousin, whose favorite bedtime story is the FrightProps catalog! Or maybe it’s your own kid, who got suspended from junior high after biting into fake blood capsules during a pop quiz! Whoever you choose to nominate for The Future of Haunting, just make sure they’re scary – and if they’re under 18, make sure you get their parent or legal guardian’s permission before you go crazy posting their pictures all over the place!

Enter as many times as you want – just as long as you truly believe these fine folks are the future of Halloween!

Lightning Simulator: The Perfect Storm!

perfect-storm_1_1

You’ve set up strings of pumpkin lights and made the place look totally spooky and haunted for your party. Cobwebs are a hanging, bloody shower curtain is in the bathroom – the whole nine yards. Your makeup and prosthetics are finely adjusted and you’re sure you’re the scariest ghoul on the block. Maybe you’ve even gone that extra mile and prepared a bunch of Halloween-themed desserts — gummy eyeballs, marshmallow ghosts, and cookie gravestones. The only things missing are thunder and lightning effects.

And of course, more fake blood.
