Cool. My pumpkins always end up looking like the ones in the old Peanuts Halloween tv special.

This year I gave the tiki pumpkin carvin a try...

I made a Jack-KU-Lantern and a Tang-O-Lantern:


then I took my efforts down to the Newberry Springs CoC Halloween festival with Crazy Kelly O and set up the Mojave Oasis "Haunted" Tiki Shack:

A lot of people couldn't believe they were real pumpkins. The High Desert Times took a bunch of photos of them

at first we didn;t take the fire torches, but we were overcome with the spirit of competition and went and got them:


4WD tiki and skull by Big Ed:

On the table is a floating candle in a pool of BLOOD!

We also had fancy lighting and a soundtrack playing. It was much more impactful in the dark, during the actual festival



Our efforts were rewarded when we won Second Place in the booth decorating contest!

Best part was I got to cop a cheap feel off Miss Teen Barstow when I posed for the newspaper shots!(Yes, newberry springs actually had to import a pretty girl from barstow for the festival)

Winning Rules!
Buzzy Out!

Well I suppose only Disneyland nuts like me are going to get this...I am going to just post it and see if anyone can identify what it is before I tell... (note: I did take a few very minor artist liberties).

Took another stab at carving last night after a couple of cocktails, it's been a couple of years since I carved anything,I'm fairly stoked at the outcome.


And here's the inspiration image from an ebay auction last week.

Correcto-mundo Klockwork! I am glad somebody "got" it I was worried it was too much detail to make out. I actually considered making copies of the cards you get from Ned and making a slot in the bottom of the pumpkin where they would come out, but it is already just was too thin and has too much detail; some of the pumpkin has started to cave in so I had to repair it with toothpicks.

AlliTiki: that is pretty awesome! I love the deep carving in it. How does it look lit up?

Dustycajun: Hilarious...disgusting... but hilarious!
