Some people are working this Good Friday, while others won’t be (and are probably going to have a Great Friday).
For those of us who WILL be working, it’s good to have a list of shops open. Some people will be open for half days (leaving after lunch) so we have split up the list into two with partials closing around lunchtime.
As American as John Wayne and Apple Pie. It can be as over the top fantastical as the Wild Wild West (steampunk anyone?!?) or as gritty as The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.
There are countless productions that need the look of the Untamed West, from your run-of-the-mill Western to a contemporary but remote Mexican village. But what prop houses do you get these items from, and where can you film them?
Caravan West Productions
The absolute go-to for Western Dressing. From hand props like straight razers, whiskey flasks, and authentic Native American items including pottery, tomahawks, beadwork to a full blown Western filming location within the Los Angeles studio zone that includes an old barn, a 19th century house and mining shacks. Period weaponry to fit the times, wardrobe, animal skins and all manner of other dressing are at your fingertips in their inventory as well.
Omega/Cinema Props, CP Valley & CP Two
Western barrels, horse troughs, water pumps, cast iron stoves, Western tools and oil lanterns. For decades Omega has been collecting props to fulfill production needs, and Westerns are certainly one of them. Call them up to find out what location you need to swing by to cover your needs.
A prop house that specializes in horror and dark themed props has Western Dressing? You betcha. Apothecary props, rattlesnake props, animal and animal bone props, gallows and more are available at Dapper Cadaver. Servicing the Haunted House circuit for years has encouraged them to amass many Western items to cover your needs.
Jackson Shrub Supply
Split rail fence, wagon wheels, various cactus varieties, hitching posts and more (including wagons and the ever-important tumbleweed for rent). Part of what a Western needs is the proper foliage, fencing and more. Jackson is a proper source for it.
Green Set, Inc
Not to be outdone by another greens company, Green Set also offers the proper foliage, greens and dressing for many Western themed productions. Straw bales, carts, fiberglass barn animals (cows, buffalos, horses), and more rustic decorations. Don’t forget that prop houses including Green Set are perfect for events too!
L. A. Party Works
Mechanical bulls, cantina poker, tomahawk throwing, archery and more. If it is a Western Themed Event you are throwing you can’t go wrong reaching out to Party Works. They’ve got western themed bars, games and entertainment that is bound to lasso in a smile from the biggest curmudgeons.
The Master’s of All Things Spooky and Gross hosted the latest Set Decorators Society of America General Membership Meeting, and as is custom with them, Dapper Cadaver had a delicious spread good enough for Count Dracula himself (with less actual blood of course).
Oh, and there was a costume competition that many participated in too!
After everyone schmoozed and explored rooms filled with jars of specimen, body parts, and tombstones, the SDSA had their usual meeting.
A special thank you goes out to BJ and Eileen for hosting a great gathering.
If you’re ever in the need for skeletons of all kinds, caskets, creepy dressing and more they are your first stop.
Here’s to another great start to the Halloween season from Dapper Cadaver (and for them that’s all year)!
