WEST CARROLLTON, Ohio (WDTN) — A West Carrollton resident is gaining attention after “Running Up That Hill” for her Halloween decorating this year by creating a yard display based on the Netflix series “Stranger Things.”
“I’m a big fan, and I have been since the beginning,” Amber Windle said of the show that inspired her display.
Windle’s Halloween yard display captures major scenes from the fourth season of Stranger Things.
“After this last season, I got enough inspiration to pick up my brushes and try and make it happen for Halloween,” Windle said. “I know there’s Stranger Things fans everywhere, so I just wanted to put something out for everyone in the community to enjoy.”
Windle recreated the “Running Up That Hill” cemetery scene with Max levitating above her friends Lucas, Steve and Dustin.
Eddie Munson is on the roof warding off “demobats” with his guitar.
There are also a few other show references around the home that fans would recognize.
Windle made all of the decorations on the house herself, including hand-painting the characters. She said it took approximately 24 hours per character to paint. Her husband, Mark Windle, helped with the installing the characters in the yard.
“A lot of plywood, a lot of patience, a lot of drawing and erasing,” Windle said.
She said that she welcomes people to stop by and take photos with the display, which is located at 5323 Ormand Road in West Carrollton.
“I know there’s Stranger Things fans everywhere, but just to actually see them come and see my house and see my art, it’s been amazing,” Windle said.
The house lights turn on at 6 p.m. and turn off at midnight, but the character lights stay on all night.
Windle asks that people use the hashtag #WCSTHouse when posting photos, as a way to credit her work on social media.
On Halloween night, trick-or-treaters are expected to experience music from the show, fog machines and other added extras.
She said that the display will be set up until the week after Halloween.
