I'm excited to announce that our little project with Creature Skin suits has landed us this Best New Product award from IAHA.

With the large amount of orders we got before Transworld I figured we were on to something that would be well received. The amount of orders we got will most definately mean we will continue to grow our product line. The ideas are wild and I'm excited to bring more new products to this industy. This next time I will not reveal the new items until right before the show. As I figued we had a vendor copy our idea, however I'm please to see it was not at the same level as I predicted due to the huge amount of time we put into R&D and the sculpting of our product.

Thanks to all the haunters that gave us orders!

They look great! Are they designed with thinner actors in mind? What would you recommend as far as height and weight ranges? Most of the people I work with tend to be calorically challenged. :)

I'm the proud owner of one of the first Creature Skins! Awesome stuff!!! Can't wait to see what they come up with next!

I wore mine on the Transworld show floor and at the haunt tour where I had some great reactions from the haunt actors. I actually startled a couple of them. They would pop out not not expecting to see someone in a costume. Especially that costume! It was pretty funny! I also wore it on the casino floor of the Venetian (security didn't seem to mind). That too was hysterical. The reactions ran the gambit from people totally ignoring me or looking away to people stopping me for a photo op. When I walked out of the Venetian the valet parking dudes freaked because at first glance it appeared that I was truly a walking skeleton or so they told me.

The suit come standard in XLarge. I'm 5'11" 188lbs and they fit me. However, you really want to cast a thin person to make the overall look real. When is the last time you seen a thick zombie? LOL

We cast actors that are around 135 to 185lbs 5'7" to 6'2" and they look amazing in it.

We also have the suits available in 1X Large for taller actors.

I have truely been amazed at the response from our fellow haunters. I also haved to say the vendors in this industry are also some of the nicest people.

We are planning on coming out with more styles and I'm excited to see our booth grow with more products. We are planning to go to Midwest to show all the haunters that stayed away from Vegas these suits in action.
