I thought it would be interesting to see what everyone's favorite new products were at the 2011 Transworld Show. I know I'll forget some, but I'll probably be reminded by the posts of others. Here, in no particular order, are some of my favorites:
Night Frights - www.NightFrights.net
Bloody Mary Mirror
Ghost Bust Live Deluxe
Pale Night Productions - www.PaleNight.com
AtmosFearFX - www.atmosFEARfx.com
Shades of Evil
Edge Designs - www.EdgeDesignsOnline.com
Creature Corps - www.CreatureCorps.net
Dead House Designs - www.DeadHouseDesigns.com
Pretty much everything they were showing for set design!
I'm anxious to hear what everyone else liked as their favorites!

Dark Raven Designs blew us away this year, very cool stuff...in fact we spent about 65% of our budget there! That hallway they had was amazing, hard to describe to someone who hasn't seen it, but I can't wait to start playing with ours!
Pale Eye was great as well, the chainsaw doors were cool, and the portrait with the pissed off prairie girl, loved it!

LOL! Pale Eye.. that's a new one for Kip/Pale NIGHT.. Someone wrote "Pale Mike" on a jug of his PermaBlood here & the name stuck with us.. :) ( sorry Kip! :D )
I think his Portrait Panic girl was one of my favs at the show. I was impressed by Hazard Room's things too.. There were a handful of new vendors there & I was impressed by a lot of the new products.

Defiantly agree with Kel on the Bloody Mary Mirror, my number one. Number two would be Dead House Design, and then I really liked the Wolf German Shepard by Scare Products.
Great show all around though!

FYI the German shepherd was from Scarefactory.

Personally hands down Dark Raven had the best new original stuff. Now that one booth Pale Eye, Pale Mike, Pale Prairie dog they had an awesome Prairie Night Portrait. LOL! How can anyone get that name wrong?

LOL! the name of the company is Pale Night Productions - www.PaleNight.com
A couple of years ago I was confusing their name with Pale Eye Productions as well. Pale Night Production is Kip Polley's business and Pale Night is the company that introduced the Asylum Door to the haunt industry.

I liked too many things to list here, although I agree that Pale Night, Night Fright, and Distortions all had some great stuff...

I didn't get to go, so I cannot say. I'm sure that the show was amazing. Thank you for the links, Raycliff Manor.

Thanks DR...I always get those two names mixed up!

I didn't get to see much of the show but hands down Dark Raven had the best overall booth. I liked all the masks and costumes, and I will say MORE MORE MORE! Keep them coming!
I loved the maggots from the House of Shock guys...that was cool.
I liked the hand that came through the window from Scarefactory... we did basically this same thing many years ago at TW but Scarefactory hand through the window looked good and reached out pretty far. I might get one.
Ghost Ride's booth was bloody good! LOL
The one thing I like about the show is we are getting different kinds of companies like lighting companies, insurance companies, ATM, to ticket agencies, to everything between. This is good four your business.

Just a home haunter here but these were my favorites from that perspective:
Midnight Studios FX: The whole booth!
Immortal Masks: The Immortal mask
Haunt Tactics: Zombie King
Dark Raven Designs: Wall worms
Pale Night Productions: Girl in the fan, window breaking and Chainsaw
Poison Props: Skeleton on the flailing girl
The Scare Factory: The spooky electric motors props (especially the FCG versions)
Night Frights: Bloody Mary Mirror
Gore Galore: Giant Goat Head
Every year I make a compilation video of my favorites that good on video. Here's this year:

The ATM idea was pretty cool. That would be the kind of booth I would usually pass by figuring it would be too costly or a pain in the rear, but they actually had a really affordable set up that could generate good amount cash.
