Dapper Cadaver is a specialty prop shop offering the finest death-related props, Halloween props, haunted house decorations, and oddities. We take pride in manufacturing and stocking the most realistic, high quality props available. Most of our props are either lifecast, scientifically accurate, or real items put aside for prop use. Dapper Cadaver brand props are designed and manufactured in the United States. All props are available for sale or rental. We also do custom prop fabrication. We are open to the public as well as to prop masters, set decorators, haunt professionals and Halloween party planners. If you aren't able to make the trip, take a look at some of the pictures below to get a feel for the shop.

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, KeiSha, 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 Airforce 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.

We look forward to hearing from you and helping you make your most fantastic or horrific dream a reality.
