My largest pumpkin carving endeavor ever. I took the Shepard Fairey designed poster, put it in CS, made it 3 shades in B&W and resized it to 8×10. Used carbon paper to etch the pattern onto the pumpkin, then used an exacto knife(man i wish i had dremel tool) and carved the 3 layers to make the pattern. Total time 8hrs
The level of Halloween stuff currently online has steadily risen over the last few weeks. Because it coincides with the week before election once every four years, I guess that means political pumpkins are quite common, but the one above is a particularly neat piece of carving.
We don’t do the carved pumpkin thing here in Australia (we don’t do Halloween much at all really, except for a few little kids knocking on doors at unpredictable intervals), but I’m annually astonished by the amount of work some people in the US put into creating works of art or commentary to accompany the candyfest.
What other impressive pumpkins have people seen online? Does everyone remember the Death Star pumpkin that got mailed to a gazillion inboxes last year? While we’re on the theme, what about costumes? I know some of my readers have sprogs with great imaginations in the costume department, so what are they going to wear this year?
