Hello my friends, it’s been a while since we’ve had any visitors down in The Archives.

One of the big horror/haunted attraction conventions, Trasnworld, was held last weekend.  Your humble Tombkeeper was not able to attend, but I was able to flip through some catalogs of some companies that other intrepid travelers brought back.  If you are ready to start planning your Halloween display now, you might want to check out these sites.  Or you could check out the websites so you how much you need to save up.

We haven’t mentioned either of these places before.

The first is prop manufacturer Beyond the Grave Productions (http://beyondthegraveproductions.com).  The create quality static props but they are a little on the pricey side.

The other is a local mask manufacturer The Murderforge (http://www.murderforge.com/index.html).  The artist does amazing work, creating small masks, half masks, and static props.  They are constructed out of a special latex and polyfoam mix which makes them more durable than your average latex mask.  The best part?  The artist is a local boy who started in his parents’ garage in Dearborn, MI.

We’ll be adding some more websites as the year rolls on.  Stay tuned!
