Frequently Asked Questions

What FX are used in the making of the costumes?

We use many Fx ranging mostly from high end acrylics and sealants, fabric and light spray paints to professional fabric safe blood fx and various gel fx to get the precise accurate desired effect on each costume. We are not responsible for any allergies or skin sensitivities to the costumes and we always recommend wearing undershirts for a comfortable fit.
