Top quality props and prosthetics for cosplayers and collectors.

Hi! We're Desirée and Brian, the artists behind Locked in the Cellar Creations. Each of us has loved making our own decor, costumes and - in Brian's case - Halloween make-ups since we were little. After we met, we quickly discovered that we make a great team inside and outside the workshop, and we used our combined skills and talents to set up our little creative business. Our workshop has always been in the basement of our home, and since we spend more time down there than anywhere else, we aptly named ourselves Locked in the Cellar Creations.

Our business officially started in 2014, after my love for cosplaying led me to work in a Halloween store for a season. It was during that period that I realized exactly how poor the quality is of mass produced props and prosthetics, and for perfectionists like ourselves it was hard to grasp why these products were so popular.
We had all these designs for make-ups and props that we had made for ourselves in the past, and when offered an opportunity to have a booth at a pop culture/cosplay convention, we decided to run a few copies and see how they would be received. Customer response exceeded our expectations. Everybody loves the quality, the detail and the super thin edges of the prosthetics.
We consult with haunters, cosplayers and horror fans, and we work hard to expand our retail product line with new and exciting products each year!

We also work as prop makers and SFX make-up artists for local, independant film productions.

    I grew up in The Netherlands, where Halloween isn't very big, but I have always been fascinated by it, as well as being a big Fantasy lover. Owning a creative business has always been a dream of mine.

  • Brian

    Owner, Creator

    I have been making my own Halloween props since I was 8 years old. Back then there weren't a lot of Halloween props in stores, so I had to learn how to make everything myself! After going to film school I decided my real passion is horror-makeup.

Frequently asked questions
Can a prosthetic be reused?

If you take good care of it and clean it carefully after use, you can usually reuse it a few times. However, the first application will be best as the edges are still perfectly thin.

Can one of your products be customized for me?

Unfortunately we cannot accept customization requests during the Halloween season.
Please check back with us about customization options after Halloween.
