Lydia Hayden Rella

Inspired by her grandmother’s love of costuming and Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion, Lydia’s passion for all things Halloween has evolved into a lifestyle. She has haunted Simi Valley for more than twenty years as Mourning Rose Manor, a yard display/home haunt that is open nightly the entire month of October. In January, 2013 she co-founded SoCal Valley Haunters with Derek Young to share the creativity, passion and skills that goes into being a home haunter. She enjoys sharing her passion to help new members learn how to create unique, low cost props to haunt their own homes.
