    Hows it goin everyone? We at Wicked Woods Haunted Forest would like to introduce our new company "GorEfx Productions". We have started this company 6 months ago so we are working very hard and quickly to get new stuff up. Our products will have their debut at Horrorfind March 28! Wicked woods and GorEfx will both have tables there. We are making mainly latex and silicone masks, but we have a few other props we are working on to have for sale asap, including pneumatic and static horror props.

    Being haunters, we know what it's like to find overpriced items everywhere you look so we want to keep our prices as low as possible, and we are proud that everything is handmade in the USA by us!!! Please bare with us, as we are still making and updating our product line,so there isnt much on there yet. Below is a list of what we have available as of March 08-pictures and ordering info can be seen at- www.Gorefxproductions.com Thanks much for looking and check back frequently for updates and all that good stuff.

    SILICONE GOREROTTED ZOMBIE MASK

    As posted on Hauntedattractionmag forum, this is obviously a complete knockoff of twistedtoyboxes work,which for the record is copyrighted, You are about to get yourself into a world of trouble with this, just because you add a shirt, it doesnt mean that you arent knocking off someones work.
    I was polite on HAM but point blank its NOT COOL to Liberate someones idea so obviously, then make mention that you are doing it to COMBAT OVERPRICED products. Vendors come and go in this industry and the ones that go the quickest are the ones that think they are going to make the worlds most affordable props.
    Industry priceas are what they are, not because vendors are sticking it to the customers, but because there is alot more involved in producing a prop than slushing latex around. for the time, material, overhead invested in producing a piece of this size, are you telling me that your time is only worth a few dollars a hour?
    If per chance Chris sees this you are gonna get hammered by his lawyers.

    so with that said come on, If you want to produce some props, sit back, grab some clay and let it talk to you... next thing you know you got a awesome design all of your own, then COPYRIGHT it or else youll be having this talk with the NEXT NEW KID ON THE BLOCK.

    Knockoffs= NO SKILL, If you have to knock off someone else's product, and can't come up with your own, you need to find another line of work!

    As I have posted in MANY THREADS , I am a firm Believer that it is HARD to do something ORIGINAL these days, I honestly feel like anything that Can be done has been done, People just put their own spin on it.
    Last year Chris came out with a Original Idea, Thats Great! Its rare to see new Ideas hit the market.
    Last Year Edge designs took a centuries old illusion and gave it a new spin.....
    was it a NEW IDEA no, Just their spin on a OLD IDEA.... For the record I Voted it best new prop of 2007 because it was a GREAT SPIN.
    The point im trying to make is, before you copy someones idea, think about what you are doing and then ask yourself how would you like it. Thats just about the nicest way I can put it.
    As for the Brain Hat Im not pressed, it wasnt any Rocketscience needed on my part to make it, IT DOES MAKE YOU LOOK BAD that you have TWO VENDOR KNOCKOFFS out of your line up of 7 items tho.

    Ok, we have taken the chestpiece down, so everyone can stop thinking I'm intentionally trying to rip people's idea's As a matter of fact I have never heard of Twisted Toybox until now,and either has anyone else that I know. and to further information, the opened chest piece has been done way before this one that you speak of. I recall a company Dimensions Of Terror having a similar chestpiece in 2004! I try to research whats out there before I make it, but this we just did not find, we did find this however...

    As a matter of fact I took our chest piece down because I don't want to sell anything else someone "thinks" is a knockoff, and to respect others in the industry. As I said before, Im not out there to do any harm. We sculpt our props from pictures of actual medical procedures, not someone else's props. And if you were to look closely you would see our piece is nothing alike to Twisted Toybox. Boddybagging,I am 100% dedicated to the haunting industry, and as a matter of fact I even ordered your dvd, and I look forward to it very much.. if you want me to stop selling the brain hat, thats cool. But instead of giving me a bad name, atleast let me have my side of the story.

    Just for the record, we havent even sold one, and his piece looked nothing like ours, and we were only going to be selling it for 35.00 bux because we are tired of knowing people pay ridiculous amounts of money for foam and latex. Yes I am aware of what it takes for the costs, and Im not intentionally trying to underprice others, but make it affordable for haunters that are starting out and dont have much money. It's new business promotions. WE are keeping prices low to start, for promotional purposes, not to f*** someone else over.

    But, it's done, we are not selling it anymore.Its off our site, and everyone can stop being so upset. I may be a NEW KID ON THE BLOCK as you state, but wasn't everyone? So, hope there's no bad blood between anyone, we are haunters and business people too, but we are not A**holes intentionally trying to ruin other peoples business! We appreciate it coming to our attention!Thanks

    Just for the record, I was making zombie chest pieces and advertising them for sale in "Fangoria" magazine back in the mid 80's. So there!

    So, where's my royalty checks, you ripoff artist, you. LOL

    Actually, if I got money every time someone copied one of my early ideas, I could be retired and living richly on some South Pacific island now. Que sera sera.
