I just ordered ten of these. I've been wanting to do a zombie horde maze in the driveway that people would have to walk through to get to the door, and have mannequin zombies with some live ones thrown into the mix, but I having a bunch of mannequins didn't make the prop 11/1 compliant for me so I didn't do it. I'm thinking with these I just blow them up, dress them, put the masks, shoes, and gloves on, and make a rebar stand for them and on 11/1 I deflate them, pack them up with their clothes and masks in some boxes and all is well. :)

I bought 15 of them from Halloween Asylum a couple of years ago. Beats messing around with stacks of PVC and pool noodles and rolls of chicken wire and bubble wrap. I think it's important when you're trying to do something on the cheap that you consider how much it will cost just to buy what you want to begin with.

Plus, as you said, they don't take up any storage space!

I have one of these, and it tends to be pretty droopy under the weight of clothes + mask, even with very light clothes and a good stand propping it up. I use it in scenes where I have multiple figures. I'll have good figures with PVC skeletons and quality masks in the foreground, then use this in the background where it gets noticed less. It might be pretty challenging to build a scene of multiple standing figures relying primarily on inflatable mannequins. They're pretty great for figures lying down though.

Yep, that's what our 11/1 compliance is all about. If it can't be stowed away in Nov 1, we don't build it. Fortunately I've got a lot of horror freak kids who say "it can go in my room!" :)
