Clowning Around in a BIG Way

Coulrophobia (the fear of clowns) effects a LOT of people and that's great news for haunted house owners!  Lots of haunts feature clowns and we've always seen interest in our scary clown masks and props over the years.  So this year, when we came across some amazing GIANT clown heads we did not hesitate to pick some up for our line of Halloween Props .  We will have four of these heads - three are made of fiberglass and one is latex.  They're ideal for marking the entrance to your haunt.  Since the heads are 5 feet tall and 4 feet wide, they will definitely get your haunt some attention.

First up is our favorite - the 5 Ft. Deluxe Scary Clown Head.  This one has a highly detailed paint job, with a nice glossy finish.  This head is made of fiberglass so you can hang it outside your haunt with no worries about it getting wet in the rain.  With proper care, this prop will last for many, many years.

Notice the cat-like eyes and small horns protruding out around the face.  Those teeth look moistened with the saliva of one hungry clown!  A menacing sign for your haunt to be sure.

Next up is the 5 Ft. Giant Latex Clown Head.   The prop has very vibrant colors, from the shaggy red hair to the polka dot bow tie.  The eyes are like enormous buttons.  Big fangs and quite possibly the largest clown nose on the planet add the finishing touch.  Like the other clown heads, this one is flat on the back for easy hanging.  Because the material is latex, this is best suited for indoor use.  It can certainly be displayed outside, but it will be more vulnerable to the elements than the fiberglass heads.

This next 5 Ft. Fiberglass Scarface Clown Head definitely has that retro feel to it.  You can just picture this one hanging outside the funhouse taunting you to come inside.  Or perhaps it belongs over the entrance to the sideshow tent.  Come one, come all to see the freaks of nature inside!  Yeah, I can see that!  This clown himself looks pretty freaky with his one light up eye.  The other was of course lost in a most unfortunate incident.

Last, but certainly not least is the 5 Ft Fiberglass Yellow Hat Clown Head.  Also done with a retro style, this clown would look great outside of any circus themed haunted house.  With two lighted eyes, this prop will light the way, beckoning the bravest of souls to step forward.  All others will no doubt be dragged in kicking and screaming by their supportive pals.

Any way you slice it, all of these clowns would look great at a haunt.  To truly appreciate their size and detail they really have to be seen in person.  Haunt patrons will definitely be in awe of these characters.  So stop by Halloween Asylum to check out these great new props - all in our Scary Clown prop section.  We expect to have these giant heads in stock by mid August.

I have to apologize... it's been several months since I posted anything new here. Admittedly I've been caught up in our facebook page. I find it so easy to post short daily updates there, post videos and pics of new products, and it also allows for quick feedback from our customers. But the blog does allow for more in depth posts, so here I am today... breathing new life into the Asylum blog!

2011 not only marks our 10 year anniversary in business, but it also marks our venturing into some exclusive products for Halloween Asylum and we're very excited about this! Our first line of exclusive items are a line of new Scary Babies! Coming in August will be our seven fiendishly-adorable babies that would just as soon bite your arm off as give you a hug! All of these little devils are made of latex and have a metal armature inside that allows them to be fully posable. You can have them sit, stand,  bend their arms, and turn their heads. You can even change their clothes to suit your taste.

The above shot is the whole gang! They will be up on our website later this week. We just got this photo from the factory a few days ago so you're seeing them almost as soon as we are. The clown (2nd from left) is undergoing some revision to make him creepier!

For more detail, you can see closeups of Carl Cadaver and Betty Bloodthirst. He looks pretty sweet in his bib overalls and dead-guy grey skin tone.  She is about as cute as a scary baby can be in her bloody lace dress with her hands and face smeared in her latest victim's blood!  Faces only a mother could love?  We don't think so!
