Many artists specialize in creating unique items as art or as props. I have found prop makers through Craigslist and by searching online. Also, if you have a friend who is an artist (particularly one who likes 3D art and sculpture), you may be able to hire him to create the perfect prop. I regularly had one of my photo assistants, who was an artist, create props for me, from wreaths of flowers to unusual headpieces. Another place to find artists is on deviantART.com. deviantART is a social network for artists, whether painters, photographers, sculptors, or computer artists. I have borrowed or commissioned props from artists who have created incredible surreal and eye-catching pieces.
