TikTok videos featuring spooktacular Eras-inspired decorations are going viral. And, creating your own creepy-cool Eras displays is easier than you might think, whether you are decorating inside or outside.
Just ask Katelyn McLaughlin, who turned her front yard into a tribute to Swift and her many iterations over the years. She dressed skeletons in costumes inspired by a few of Swift’s most iconic looks, including her cheerleader outfit from “You Belong With Me” and her red-and-black catsuit from the “Reputation” era.
On her TikTok account @witchyswifty, McLaughlin shared the final product, setting it to the tune of “Look What You Made Me Do.” She adds a caption that says that she hopes Swift sees the video. Same, girl!
“The old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now… why? Because she’s dead!” My ScarEras tour #lwymmd halloween display is up! Light show is NEXT! Omg, I hope @Taylor Swift sees this! #erastour #halloween #taylorswift #swifttok #diy #reputation #lwymmdtaylorsversion #witchtok #FYP #taylornation
And she’s not the only one. Check out this example from TikTok account @mags_reverie. The Michigan-based TikTokker showed off a video of a Swift-centric Halloween yard that she stumbled upon in her neighborhood. Watch it here:
As you can see, this Swiftie created a skeleton display featuring a bony tribute to each of Swift’s iconic eras. A skeleton display inside the house features a spooky Swift in a blonde wig holding up a sign that asks “You OK?” which is, of course, a nod to that iconic scene in her 2009 “You Belong With Me” music video.
There is also a light-up letter board (like this one) that reads “Halloween (Taylor’s Version).”
If you want to create your own Eras-inspired Halloween display, you could go a similar route by dressing up a few skeletons in blonde wigs and costumes like the above examples. Or, consider making a Travis Kelce and Swift display by dressing up one skeleton in a Chiefs Kelce jersey with a football helmet.
Then deck out another skeleton in an Eras outfit or Swift’s laid-back game-day apparel. For reference, she wore a black shirt and Area crystal-cut jean shorts to last Sunday’s game. Naturally, the shorts sold out on retail sites almost immediately … although they’re now in stock at Area at least and you can buy them for $695. She also wore Christian Louboutin boots that Page Six says cost $1,795.
Now, those prices really are scary. You might want to substitute in some cheaper alternatives for the skeletons in your yard.
