The Death-Related Prop House & Prop Fabrication Shop

Dapper Cadaver is a death-related prop house and prop fabrication shop. We are open to the adventurous public as well as to prop masters, set decorators, haunt professionals and Halloween party planners.

We've provided props to thousands of film and TV productions, including hit TV shows like Bones, Dexter and Law & Order and major motion pictures like Nightmare on Elm St, Transformers 3, Pirates of the Caribbean 2-4, Water for Elephants, several Saw movies, No Country For Old Men, Hurt Locker and more. Dapper Cadaver has also done both stage and video props for such musicians as Alice Cooper, Slipknot, Korn, Insane Klown Posse, Kesha, Brittany Spears, Kanye West, Ozzy Osbourne and Marilyn Manson. We've also provided props for a wide variety of independent productions, student films, music videos and advertisements.

Our props and decorations have also been used by top haunted houses and Halloween parties. In 2010, we were honored to provide props for the White House Halloween party, and have been providing props and décor for Universal Halloween Horror Nights, 6 Flags Fright Fest, and the Playboy Mansion Halloween Party for years. Every year we provide props to both home haunts and professional haunted houses across the country, and have done décor for such celebrities as Tiger Woods, Paris Hilton, and Martha Stewart.Our props are so realistic that we have even supplied forensic institutes and science classes. We have worked with every branch of the US Military, as well as Homeland Security, FBI, CIA, and nationwide police, fire, forensic training, disaster preparedness courses. In 2011 we received a medal from the US Air Force Office of Special Investigations for outstanding products and service during a forensic training exercise. We also work regularly with Canadian, UK, and Australian institutes and forces, including Scotland Yard.

We love to receive pictures and clips of our props in action. If you email us and allow us to share your project with our fans, we'll give you a discount on your next order. See a selection of our props in action below.
