Some people decorate outside their house for Halloween. Others decorate inside. We love both types. But we’ve got a special place in our heart for those who do BOTH. And, when we say both, we’re talking about those who are so all-in, they’re willing to put a full size animatronic in their living room. That’s what we have here.
To be sure, that’s not all we love about the Halloween display that Stacy Paskett put together at her Roy, Utah, home. There’s a little bit of everything here – and because this is the case, it is loaded with great ideas for the rest of us who are beginning to prepare for Halloween.
We can’t even count how many digital decorations that Stacy deploys are her home. But we can count all the different display modes – in fact, we see them ALL! (For those counting, that would be: Window, Wall, Hollusion, TV/Monitor and Prop modes.)
For starters, we count two different prop modes, including the classic display of Jack-O’-Lantern Jamboree Digital Decoration on uncarved pumpkins. But we really love the projection of Halloween Moon Digital Decoration onto the globe of an outdoor pathway lamp at the front of her house. We’re big fans of anytime you can project onto something slightly different – and it certainly works here.
Stacy also does a great job with her Hollusion Projection Material stretched over a faux archway, nestled among other props and colorful lights. When the material is stretched tightly and there is no projector light “spill,” the effect of a floating transparent ghost is really powerful.
There are several wall projections throughout the video, inside her house and out. We do like how Stacy makes a ghoulish gallery by combining the “Possessed Portrait” individual decoration (from Paranormal Passage Digital Decoration Collection) on her wall with a TV Mode display from UnLiving Portraits Digital Decoration.
Stacy tells us that she plans all year for a Halloween party she hosts with her family, and the results certainly show it. The neighborhood seems to appreciate it, too – Stacy said they had kids posing for photographs in her yard, and others come by in the daylight to take pictures.
“We usually don't get many kids – we usually open our door maybe four times,” Stacy adds. “This year we gave out stuff to 70 kids. We watched car loads drop off kids at our house.”
We love your year-long planning effort, Stacy! Your hard work shows with your great displays, lights and color. We can’t wait to see what you do this year!
