Good fun though with the keiki...

Excellent work carvers! It's great to see the tradition alive and well.

Joe, I REALLY love your carvings - the removal of the rind really gives it a wood-like appearance. I was amused at the position of the top pic - looked like a giant carved pineapple! Hey, there's an idea - a very STICKY idea! Nice carvings all.

Thanks Bongo...love love love Halloween and too bad the original pix in this thread are gone...they were awesome. I recently watched a professional chef carve off and their creations were unbelievable. They had mechanical aspects to make the pumpkin animated. The most amazing one was a Medusa with snakes moving in and out of the pumpkin. I have trouble just cutting a lime in half!!!

Go to the Ghoulishly grand carved pumpkins and it is the picture in the second row, 4th from the left...it is crazy!!!

You carvers always have the best jack-o-lanterns! All I can do are those patterns you pin onto the pumpkin, poke holes around the pattern and then try to play connect-the-dots with a carving knife! I just light up one of my cheap-o Big Lots Tiki candle holders and let it go at that!

My friend Judy came over with a nice Aloha pumpkin.

The front with a Hawaiian beach scene. Palm trees, clouds, a Tiki torch and a turtle.



Left side with a Volcano.



Right side with a double stacked Tiki.




She copied this off a Tiki product label, can you guess which one? (Hint, those are Tiki dogs).

We did a Flaming Tiki (no not that kind) a couple of years ago in Jasper, AB over the thanksgiving week-end. Came in first place ... Wish I could carve detail as well as Tiki Tony or Al, would have been much better (fortunately you couldn't tell how badly carved it was at night when it was roaring with fire). Sorry about the picture, my wife took it. Basically, soak a roll of toilet paper in Kerosene and drop it inside a can, then into the pumpkin, light it up and voila. Really awesome.
