Halloween is more than a month away, but already, someone has won the season’s best lawn decor.

Over on TikTok, a Halloween ornament has gone viral after it successfully recreated that iconic scene from “Stranger Things,” wherein Max Mayfield is floating up in the air as she struggles against Vecna in the Upside Down. 

In the video, you can see a mannequin dressed to look like Max levitating above a woman. What’s mindblowing about the lawn decor is that it doesn’t seem to be propped up on a platform or attached to a wire.

Suffice to say, the illusion has baffled and impressed many. “#001 fan for sure,” commented Netflix’s TikTok account, while Fallon Tonight added: “This is amazing!”

When asked how they did it, owners Dave and Aubrey said that they’ll reveal their secret soon. That hasn’t stopped everyone from speculating, with some believing that the prop is attached to a fish wire and a tree that’s hidden off-frame, while others say it involves a mannequin made out of pool noodles to keep Max’s weight down.

The couple is not yet done weaving their sorcery, either. They’re still coming out with new pieces, such Vecna’s grandfather clock and those tentacles commonly seen in the Upside Down. 

Give them a follow to see their complete setup come Halloween . If you’re in the neighborhood, don’t forget to bring your Kate Bush cassette with you!
