No Bloody Country for Old Men

no country

About a year ago I sold blood and police caution tape to the prop master for what was then called “the latest Coen brothers film”
It’s great to see they really put the blood to good use!
This is an awesome movie. Part Western, part horror, part indie.
The villain is such a bad ass.

RIP Bling Headstone

RIP bling headstone 099

I created this for a lexicographer doing a documentary on words called “The Joy of Lex”
This prop was used for a sequence on the word “Bling,” it’s origins, it’s rise, it’s overuse, and it’s rapidly approaching demise.
That was 2 years ago and people are still using the word.
Come on people! I need to finish this thing. Lets make 2008 the fatal year for Bling.

I always love carving funny tombstones for halloween

Mummy in the Maze

bones torture 2

I’m so excited, my favorite holiday is about to mash up with my my favorite show and it’s chock full of my favorite things!

The Bones Halloween special airs next Tuesday the 30th at 8pm on Fox.

Keep an eagle eye out for all the Haunted house decor we supplied them – gibbets and gallows and bodies and skull chisels, blood and electric chairs and so much more good stuff.

And if anyone pulls stills from the episode, awesome. I’ll credit you on our website.

Back in Order

Severed Head Found at Salton Sea

The new season of Law & Order is underway and already they’ve got me doing props for the flagship series and SVU. The guy above was originally created for Law & Order, he’s one of my favorite heads ever. The photo was taken by Brian Henderson in the Salton Sea as part of a crime scene photo series. The dog below is for an upcoming episode of Law & Order (the original) called “Submission”

Anybody who has screen caps from either the 3 year old episode with the mummy or the upcoming one with the dog, or any of my Law and Order props let me know or post them in the comments.
Other props I’ve done for L&O can be seen below in the following links

Dexter's Chop Shop

dismembered woman

We at Dapper Cadaver created six mutilated corpses for this season of Dexter. A lot of people have now come in and said they’ve seen the episode, but my problem is I don’t have showtime. Does anyone have a copy of the episode with the chopped up bodies or images from it? Above is one of the corpses on our shop floor.

Margaret Cho reviews my penis

Prosthetic Cho

My penis has really gotten around. Traci Lords, Kenneth Anger, and Margaret Cho have all had their hands on it. It was for Margaret that I originally created it, and here’s her review, from Alarm Press

“I went to a special effects specialist, who is a friend of my husband and made a very light yet very realistic flaccid latex penis. It was very hard to find a dildo that was like a flaccid penis!

I needed one that would fit into panties and still look like something when I stripped them off, so it had to be collapsible, and it is — fully collapsible and will stick onto my crotch with double stick tape!

The choreography is simple, just a classic fan dance really, but with a big surprise ending. The audience really doesn’t know what to do. At first I try to seduce them, being very feminine and coy with myself, a very shy, teasing kind of dance. But then at the end, when I reveal I have this very real looking and startlingly plain penis, people really freak out.

I almost cried the first few times that I performed it because the audience reacted so strongly — screaming! People were literally screaming. I love that. So that is my most exciting number right now.”

Screaming for my penis, that’s what I like to see in print.
When asked by Lawrence.com about size, Margaret had this to say
“Q: Why didn’t you borrow Mark Wahlberg’s from “Boogie Nights”?

A: That’s too big. Mine is big, but it’s not big like that.”

Thank you Margaret.

More Gore!

victim man

America’s Scariest Home Haunts has a new episode called “Gore Galore” and they paid me a visit in the shop to talk about guts, butcher shops, sheep’s hearts, and what’s the best thing to use for painting blood splatters. There’s also lots of fun footage from inside haunts where people get live autopsies, covered in maggots, and beaten in cages.

Joy!

Remember, there’s a new episode everyday, so to see my interview check out Gore Galore

Models in Straight Jackets

Models in Straight Jackets

In the words of the PA in charge of returning the 12 straight jackets to my shop, “I don’t know if you like watching sexy girls getting tied up, but if you do, this is the episode for you.”

It’s the episode of “America’s Next Top Model” called “The Girls Go Rock Climbing,” but should be called “The Girls get tied up in straight jackets first,” because really, that’s the part everyone is talking about.

It’s this weeks episode. Check local listings for ANTM on the CW.

The straight jackets are authentic medical straight jackets, the only kind still manufactured for use in mental institutions, prisons, and hospitals. They’re 8 pounds of sail grade canvas, heavy steel and leather. Everything else is a costume straight jacket.
We rent them for $50 per week and sell them for $250.

The blood is mine, but who's The Cleaner?

The blood is mine, but who's The Cleaner?

There’s a lot of blood in Samuel L Jackson’s new pic, The Cleaner, and it’s all mine. Watch the trailer here, and take a shot every time they show my blood. I did.

We created a new kind of blood just for the movie, and dubbed it
“BJ Winslow’s EZ Clean Wet & Dry Blood” It’s specially formulated to be a very realistic dark red while wet, and to darken and “brown out” as it drys, just like actual blood. We also made it one of the easiest stage bloods to clean off of sets, props, and actors. Perfect for a movie about a guy who goes into crime scenes full of dry blood, and has to wash the joint up.

Release date is still to be announced. Sometime this winter.
