My name is Valerie B., co-owner of Phantom Foundry Productions, a costume and prop company currently based in Atlanta. We specialize in high-quality, handmade costumes and props for the haunted attraction industry, as well as Mardi Gras, Ren Faires, etc.
My husband, John, and I met a lot of you guys at MHC a couple of weeks ago, and we wanted to introduce ourselves here on the forums. ;) This seems like the best place to post new product updates and other news.

I have over thirty years of sewing and costume-making experience, and I've been in the haunted attraction industry for the last seven. John has a great deal of electronics and computer knowledge, and is the "techie" and main propmaker/sculptor. We are both lifelong Halloween fanatics!

Please check out our website: www.phantomfoundry.com
For the next couple of weeks, we will continue to offer the MHC convention prices to anyone on this forum. Just e-mail me and I'll send you the convention pricelist.

Our turnaround time right now is three to four weeks and we always give you an estimated shipping date within 24 hours of receiving your order. We pride ourselves on meeting our shipping deadlines, as well as creating high-quality, unique products. We've been in the industry long enough to learn about many vendor problems and issues. We will NOT take more orders than we can fill in a reasonable time! When we get close to our maximum order volume for the season, we will post that here on the forums and on our website. Our reputation is our most valuable asset and we intend to keep it that way!

We would LOVE any input you folks have, as well as what you'd like to see us offer. We want to make what you want to buy!

I would also like to add that all of our products are easy to clean and care for, and most are machine washable!
