At MHC, June 2009
Phantom Foundry Productions, LLC was founded by John and Val in 2009. We specialize in unique, handcrafted costumes and props for the haunted attraction industry, Mardi Gras, Renaissance faires and the general public. By blending Valerie's many years of sewing and design experience with John's electronic and technical expertise, Phantom Foundry Productions is able to present unique costumes and props of the highest quality. We are constantly working to offer exciting new designs, as well as hard-to-find basics, at reasonable prices.
Our New Orleans & Atlanta weddings
After several years of friendship, dating, and creative collaboration (including working with Netherworld Haunted House in Atlanta - Val as a costumer and set dresser, with John doing sound, lighting and various technical work) we decided to make it official. We had our "courthouse wedding" in New Orleans in April of 2008, a couple of days before the HauntCon pre-convention tour. We've told many people that our honeymoon was at The 13th Gate in Baton Rouge! Our "family wedding" was a couple of months later at the historic Plaza Theatre in Atlanta. The guests enjoyed popcorn and drinks during the 1920's style ceremony. We never miss a chance to dress up in costume!
