I set out to write a generic “props” round-up, but quickly discovered that our props tag is pretty deep, and covers a wide range of subjects including haunt props and/or prop furniture, elaborate costumes, and display props. I narrowed my focus, then, to props a person might carry around as part of a costume, and found, even then, there was more cool stuff than I could fit into one roundup. “Prop weapons,” it then became, and my highly scientific method for formulating “Top 10″ involved paging through the archive, selecting my personal faves, and arranging them in arbitrary order. The result, in all humility, is pretty awesome. I hope you enjoy it, and maybe find some inspiration, too.
