Where to find creepy old wallpaper?

In years past, my haunt has consisted of basic black walls with a few rooms having 'Scene Setters' up to make it look like a kitchen, dining room, etc. which added some needed variety but still wasn’t super impressive. One of the things that always gets me about Pro Haunts is how realistic their rooms are. You really could believe you are in a freaking deranged mansion about to be murdered because the walls are cracked and crumbling and the walls all look like you are walking through a Victorian home.

So the question is - aside from painting, how do you make your walls and scenes look more realistic? Does anyone know where someone can buy vintage looking wallpaper for bedroom scenes, etc. similar to the picture below? I'm fine with distressing it myself I just don’t even know where to start here. Any pointers or links would be much appreciated!! Thanks!

Over in TK421's home renovation thread, someone recently (with the past two or three weeks) posted the link to a site selling Victorian wallpaper patterns.

Here we go. Cutting-and-pasting from that thread below: http://www.halloweenforum.com/gener...ouse-maximize-halloween-architecture-133.html

Try this also www.victorianhomesmag.com I used to have a subscription to this when I owned a victorian many moons ago. Also www.bradbury.com for victorian wallpapers and such. Hope you find what your looking for. :)
make your own ..i got some free online and then painted it to what i needed.then taped two strips together and tacked onto wall.easier than you may think.make a stencil and off you go.good luck.
I repainted my haunt walls and used a stencil to look like old Victorian paper. Don't have pic with me today, can post later.

The guys at Doombuggies did up this one; http://www.spoonflower.com/wallpaper/2049564
OMG that Doombuggies one is awesome! How creepy would that be having all of those eyes looking at you! GREAT share, thank you!! And thank you to everyone else for your suggestions so far. I think the stencil would be the cheapest but would be super time consuming... lots to think about.....
