Looks truly stunning, love that back wall, reminds me of wooden cut out tombstones I've seen pics of, real ones. Provocative and breathtaking display, absolutely gorgeous, but terrifying nonetheless.

And um....THEO, you've been holding out on me!!!

Chris D said...

Incredibly spooky as always! I find so much inspiration in your work! Happy Halloween!

Countess VonRauber (Heidi) said...

Happy Halloween!!! This looks amazing! Love the candle and the incense burner details. Can’t wait to read the story of your and Marrow’s collaboration🎃

Haunted Eve said...

The color combinations are fantastic! Your haunt this year is a "pièce de résistance"!

S. Rohde Hill said...

Amazing! Exquisitely detailed as always. You make me want to do my own display outside next year (even though no one would see it).

Amy said...

H O L Y...WOW! Looks incredible, cant wait to see the full set of pics.

lady M said...

Hmmm - I was thinking when you posted those crosses a few days back that you had found religion. Happy Halloween Rot!

Colleen Townsend Harris said...

Hauntingly beautiful... Made me feel like I had stumbled upon and abandon church. Great Collaboration!

broevil said...

It's stunning...
Happy Halloween, Bean and Rot!!

Jeanne Wright said...

I got up early to see your post. Like my own private christmas morning. Well done!

Justin D said...

Wow! Just wow. Great as always Rot. Can't wait to read about all the fun details. Great colors and textures and what a creepyfun theme for the season. Thanks for posting!

Sara said...

Stunning. That figure with the jar light near her heart is already my favorite!

Mike V. said...

Spectacular. So much to see in each pic. Layers of props. Love the lighting color choices really makes an impact and sets the mood and tone. Must feel so creepy walking into it. Great Idea for the religious candle lights where the heart is on those figures. Astounding achievement once again Rot. Awesome awesome awesome.

Philip B said...

Happy Halloween! Display is awesome as usual..love it!

Willow Cove said...

Wow, this is truly amazing! I was hoping you and Theo were going to collaborate when he was visiting the states. Can’t wait for more pics and stories, of course!

Carapace_Clavicle said...

So stunning. The story and characters are perfectly clear. Beautifully macabre and superbly executed. It’s definitely a departure from what I usually see in your work but keeps the same elements and style. I hope to see more photos from this display. Do you keep this for trick or treaters or do you change it up?
Happy High Holiday, Happy Hallowe’en, Rot!

Staci said...

Well done!
I can't stop hunting the details in each pic. The backdrop, crowns, postures, robes, rosaries, incense burners, devotional candles... I could look at this for hours.

Yes, the figures with the sacred-heart-esque candles... absolutely stunning!

Will you be burning a little frankincense and myrrh?

joy said...

You out did yourself!! Amazing!
Happy Halloween!!

Liz Dearth said...

Effing WOW! Happy Halloween to you guys! Always a delight to see your haunt!

Rot said...

Thanks so much, everyone.
Been a crazy few months getting all of this ready.
We worked for three days to get it set up. Couldn't be more pleased.

Each incense thurible is loaded with real Frankincense on a charcoal.
Smells really neat.

So far no one has been offended.
So that's a plus.

Jay's Shadow said...

Absolutely WONDERFUL.
And how great it is that you had a special guest helping out this time. Kudos to him.

I have been following your blog for 15 years now? Each year your design tops the one before. It’s like watching my child grow. :D

Happy Halloween.

sumrtym said...

Really like this! In the bible belt here, my neighbors and HOA would probably go into hysterics though.

Denise Strong said...

Just jaw dropping as I have said many times about your work! Love the look of each one and those skull kinds/ holy men? Just amazing! Those crowns are the bomb in detail work. I could go on and on about your work, think I will go back to the pics and stare for hours, lol consider this mind blown, once again! Thanks for sharing!!!

The October boy said...

Stunning as usual. Hope you have a very happy Halloween!

Autumnleaf said...

SO freakin' awesome Rot! And I love the collaborative surprise! This is (as usual) way beyond any expectation. Can not wait to hear the behind-the-scene story on this one.

The photos are pure eye candy.

Thank you so much for sharing your collective talents.
Happy Halloween!!
ps I have to go with Sara...the being with the jar light is a favorite!

Adam said...

To say you have raised your own bar would be an understatement. Truly amazing!

Autumnleaf said...

The trinity centerpiece is absolutely jaw-dropping.

SharonF said...

I have no words on how amazing this installation is. Oohhhhhhh Myyyyyyyy Goddddddd.

The Mick said...

Steve Ring said...

Glorious!

VenomStorm said...

Stellar work once again! As many have said, you have out done yourself. Your attention to detail on every aspect of the scene is what sets you apart. The lighting again is some of the best I have seen, brilliantly done.

Theo demonstrated himself a talented haunter long ago. I am jealous of both of your talents. I can’t wait for the story of how you worked together on this haunt.

Bring on more pics!

NecroBones said...

Man, I'm loving this. Great job this year!!!

Vintage Seance said...

Incredible!!! So impressed and amazed as always. Thanks for always being an inspiration!

K.O. said...

Incredibly stunning!!!!!! Unbelievable work this year. You've really outdone yourself.
So many jaw-dropping elements, lovely details, and colors, all blending together perfectly to create a truly breathtaking display. I am just blown away by the work y'all did here. This is what Heaven looks like in my imagination. =]
This haunt will go down in legend, for real.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

MorbidMariah said...

WoW! This is incredible! Soooooo spooky! And something really new and unique! I have always found religious iconography to be pretty unsettling, and this takes that to a whole new level! Gorgeous!!!

Deanna Trippler said...

Wow! Just Wow! I love this theme!

highbury said...

Wait. You do collaborations!? Once again you set the standard. My god, those figures are incredible. This is by far your best work, and now I go back to the drawing board again... :)

Grim said...

Wow! Great theme, and amazing work, as always!

Michael Cabaniss said...

Amazing pics and setup this year!! I love it.

The Creeping Cruds said...

Had a friend come by yesterday wanting to know how to do haunt pieces. I showed him this and his face almost turned inside out. I think you have anew fan!
