For those with a more spooky bent in need of background art, ranging from gothic to gory:

Quality of photographs/material is VERY high and for what they are, they are priced very fairly too. They are great for quick background scenes or cover as well as wonderful photo op pieces.

I'm not the company owner and all of the typical disclaimers, but I did promise a friend that I would spread the word about his wonderful new products to some people who might actually have use for them. Please do so, and tell them that you saw it through a post on The Magic Café and that Scrye sent you!

Chris -- do you have any experience with how opague these might be -- say taped in front of a fully lit outdoor facing window to create a black-out in a room?

I'll check w/ the manufacturer.

The vinyl is pretty thick, but I can't say 100%. When they were hung at the show, they were on pipe and drape w/ a black curtain behind them. There was no bleeding of light with this particular setup.

Wayne (owner-photograhper) tells me that light will show through the back of these. You would still need to mask off a window if you are trying to establish a true blackout effect.
