Topic tags/keywords: pumpkin carving

Happy Halloween LJ’s! One of my favorite Halloween traditions that I look forward to every year is pumpkin carving. Keith and I always try to do some unique ones, and get a kick out of hearing all the ooohhhss and aaahhhsss when people come up to trick-or-treat and ask us “HOW did you guys MAKE THOSE!” :-)

Recently we’ve become fans of the AMAZING pumpkin carvings of Ray Villafane (http://villafanestudios.com/gallery/the-pumpkins-2). If you haven’t ever seen his work, then you should check it out! Anyhow, it’s always cool seeing what type of pumpkin carvings everyone makes, so lets see what YOU came up with this year….show us your pumpkins! :-)

Here’s our 1st attempts this year at doing “3D” pumpkin carvings. I did the hand with the screaming mouth, and Keith did the eye with the fingers coming out of it.

And the “normal” one I made this year…
