St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) March 07, 2013
At the Transworld Halloween & Attractions Show in St. Louis this week, Dapper Cadaver shows the results of combining Hollywood realism with Halloween thrills with their debut line of original standing characters. Based in Los Angeles, Dapper Cadaver has provided props for film and TV productions like Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Cabin in the Woods, Dexter and Supernatural.
“After seven years of creating extremely realistic prop bodies for crime shows and horror films, it was fun to bring some of my own nightmares to life as Halloween characters,” said BJ Winslow, owner and lead propmaker at Dapper Cadaver.
Dapper Cadaver’s Halloween characters revolve around classic horror themes: asylum, zombie, supernatural and all-American horror. The asylum line is inspired by the haunted sanitarium. It features evil nun, gas-masked butcher and tortured nurse tormentors as well as mental patient and experimental treatment victims. The zombie line highlights Dapper Cadaver’s expertise in creating highly realistic gore with zombies with open chest wounds, gunshot wounds and dangling jaws. The supernatural product line ranges from highly detailed takes on classics like the green witch to frightening original concepts like a demon with a horse skull head. The all-American horror characters bridge the gap between realism and horror camp with offerings like a headless Santa and facelift recipient literally lifting her own skinned-off face.
All Dapper Cadaver characters are designed with haunted house needs in mind. Most of the prop characters use a lifecast torso and arms with a durable steel leg stand instead of a full foam-filled latex body. This design makes the props less expensive and easier to ship and store. All characters are life-size and freestanding with wig, costume and accessories as pictured in the catalog and online.
Dapper Cadaver has provided Halloween props for top attractions like Six Flags Fright Fest, Knott’s Scary Farm and Eli Roth’s Goretorium. The prop shop has been featured on Travel Channel’s Halloween Crazy. All Dapper Cadaver props are available for sale and rental online. Visit http://www.dappercadaver.com for more information.
