*We are OPEN for the 2024 season!*
We are excited to announce that we are now open for the 2024 season. We thank you all for another fantastic 2023 Halloween season and look forward to showcasing some neat 2024 NEW RELEASES soon. Stay tuned.
Important 2024 updates to our services…please read below.
*NEW for 2024…Over the years we, gratefully, experience a very high order volume earlier and earlier with each passing season. Similar to the 2023 season…for the upcoming 2024 season we are going to try to accommodate as many orders and custom requests as possible as we will now be offering 2 large seasonal windows of new order availability. During these windows we anticipate the majority of the season’s orders to be placed as we will open up the vast majority of our website designs to new orders and custom work during these specific dates (Please note: some costumes such as our Living Dead lineup , Vs and Maniac characters and others will now remain open and available ALL season long to ordering with the similar, slightly shorter projected production time frames.) This will allow us to service more orders more frequently throughout the year as we will then close off many products of our catalog website to ordering to address this new high volume of orders until the next window reopens. *Due to our volume we will no longer have ANY definitive individual set deadline dates available for ANY orders of ANY kind unless its discussed and agreed to by both parties in writing PRIOR to ordering.*
Please also visit our website Home Page and social media platforms for periodic updates and up to date information concerning current 2024 ordering options.
***NEW Production Times for 2024***
Orders placed on open, specific products that are now available year round from our website during our our short LOW SEASON (November 6, 2023 thru Jan. 14th, 2024) require, on average, a 12-16 week (or sooner) production time. This time frame is an approximate estimate and NOT a guarantee due to high order volume even during this time frame. We always strive to accommodate semi-specific time frames but unless discussed PRIOR TO ORDERING please allow for the aforementioned production times. We, as always, will reach out via phone contact or email prior to shipping to confirm destination.
Orders placed during our our 2 new 2024 seasonal windows heading into our HIGH SEASON (1st larger window…Jan.15th thru Feb.15th, 2024 and 2nd window…April 1st, 2024 thru April 15th, 2024 ) require, on average, a 16-20 week production time. This time frame, again, is an approximate estimate and NOT a guarantee due to high order volume. We, as always, will reach out via phone contact or email prior to shipping to confirm destination. The 1st larger window orders will BEGIN to ship late May early June and into the summer months. We will contact you during the process ONLY as needed and prior to shipping to confirm destination and product pics. The April window orders will BEGIN to ship late/ August and into September.
Prop orders, now offered year round, have a significantly shorter production time at approximately a 6-8 week time frame. Ready to Ship items will have a 48-72 hr. turnaround to ship.
Custom work requests are always welcome and will require consultation to determine production time frames needed based on concept and detail.
***Please note: Once again, if work is needed at a specific time frame or needed earlier other than the stated production times please contact us prior to ordering. We do NOT offer refunds of ANY kind.***
* Based on previous seasons our current turn around time frames are anticipated estimates. In some instances your completion time could take longer (or shorter) than normal due to possible supply chain shortages and/or delays in materials. Additionally due to our our level of professional detail large multi-orders and/or custom work may require longer production times than stated regardless of season.
Similar to our 2023 season we will be offering a significant and steady amount of In-stock / Ready to ship custom items for 2024. Along with our standard ordering options there will be many costume and prop items (with many sizes and variants to choose from) that have been popular staples in our catalog continuously added to our Ready to Ship section throughout the 2024 season. Also look for some extremely neat, uber detailed one-off costumes, props and accessories to be added…but remember its first come first serve for these as once they are gone they are gone! Also in addition to our growing In-stock options we will be offering new costume ensemble packages of some of our most popular current costumes along with new releases to create a well-rounded group theme for any haunted attraction or feature film. We have also implemented the Affirm “payment plan” POS platforms this season to help you effectively budget for your favorite DCATX costumes. Lastly we will be lending our services more this season to unique individual custom and film work. We offer an exceptional (and consistent) level of professional craftmanship in all of our work so let us, as our company tagline states, bring your imagination to life!

With the present letter, we are informing the public that the costumes for our movie: “The House of Evil“ were made by Adam Lane and his company Dark Creation ATX We are VERY pleased by the quality and we will order soon from them for some costumes for our TV series, now in pre-production called : “The Omega File”.Massimiliano Cerchi, Producer/Director Dark Mountain Pictures
We are a professional haunted attraction located in Leeds, Alabama. Atrox had an opportunity to work with Adam and Dark Creations ATX this year and it was an amazing experience. The quality of workmanship and detail that went into each and every costume was impeccable. No small detail was overlooked down to the shoelaces. All of our costumes were custom sizes and they all fit our actors with no modifications. We took a chance on this company that we found on Facebook and it was a chance we have loved every second of. Adam and his crew are highly talented and a pleasure to deal with. We look forward to working with them in the near future for more custom work. DCATX costumes made our local news for our haunt season and they can be seen in the phot below. I would highly recommend him and his staff for any custom costume work.Brian Anderton, Atrox Factory
It is my pleasure to have the opportunity to speak about my experiences collaborating with Dark Creations ATX (DCATX) and to recommend their work for any custom character/costume projects they may have the opportunity to be a part of. Last year, my movie production company hired Adam Lane and DCATX to design and create the costume and overall look of the title character in our upcoming horror feature, Bonejangles. We approached DCATX with the project at the very last minute during the height of Halloween/Haunt Prep season and not only did DCATX ensure us that the costume would arrive in time for principle photography to start but that it would look outstanding and hold up throughout the entire 30 day shooting schedule. When the final costume was delivered to us it was very evident the quality was incomparable and exceeded our expectations. The design and color palette of the costume translated beautifully on screen, and the construction of the costume held up over the course of production, which included many stunts and long, hot summer days. DCATX demonstrated effective communication with us throughout the entire design process, which included phone calls, text messages, and photos of progress. Overall, our business dealings with DCATX have been fantastic, and I would not hesitate to hire Adam and DCATX for any of my upcoming projects. Additionally, I would not hesitate to recommend DCATX to any other company looking for a reliable and brilliant character, costume, and/or prop designer.Brett DeJager, Owner, Mystery Library Productions LLC
Simply put..we are BIG fans of all the great horror movies and their distinguished list of characters that have come and gone over the years. Some people may like scary movies because they enjoy the adrenaline rush of being scared while being safe at home or in a theater, some for the high suspense factor, and some to simply “escape” from their grinds of daily life.
