Do any of you know places where to get good props, I'm looking for wake weapons such as guns, swords, knifes, blades etc. I also need fake heads and bodyparts.

For guns I use airsoft stuff. The higher quality import guns, once you "fix" the orange safety markings on the barrel with a black sharpie marker, are very accurate reproductions. I usually order from Red Wolf (http://www.redwolfairsoft.com). They're in Hong Kong, which is a bit frightening at first, but they've got good prices. I highly recommend the Western Arms stuff. Most of the gas powered ones even have blowback (just make sure the thing ain't loaded with bb's... or, well, anything...).

For medieval, do a quick search on EBay. You can get "display quality" swords for <$100, usually a lot less. "Combat quality" (and they're not kidding...) is usually in the $150-$250 range. Armor is all over the map, depending on what pieces you're looking for.

Fake body parts I don't know about... I'd check Halloween suppliers for cheap stuff. And if you want to get more advanced, and have art skills, check out http://www.monstermakers.com/ .

And, of course, standard safety disclaimers. Triple check everything. Make sure your talent is trained in the use of prop weaponry. Etc, etc.
