In my sophomore year (ie the year of the pumpkin) it snowed for halloween so I decided to make a snow pumpkin using candy corn as its eyes and mouth and nose.
Keeping along the pumpkin train of thought, over my freshman and sophomore year I carved two pumpkins from nightmare before christmas. I drew both first (looking at an image) then carved them. I’m also reposting my pumpin from this year since it shares the same theme.
In case you couldn’t tell I find that Nightmare Before Christmas and pumpkins go super well together!
In my sophomore year we went to Keane, NH for the annual pumpkin festival. In case you don’t know what it is, it is a small town in New Hampshire that holds the world record for most lit carved pumpkins in one place. I’m talking thousands of carved pumpkins lining the street! So, we decided to add our own pumpkins to the mix and this is mine.
(In case you cannot read what the teeth say it spells out the game).
I was reaaaallly procrastinating the weekend before Halloween 2013 and I made this pumpkin. The text does go all the way around; unfortunately the only video I have to prove this has me tripping over things in it so I’m choosing to save myself the embarrassment of my clumsiness and leave it to pictures.
Every year I try my hardest to carve an amazing pumpkin. This year I was lucky enough to carve two, one of which weighed 70 pounds (for reference I am 5’10” and the pumpkin is still that size)! On the larger pumpkin I carved Jack and the on the smaller one I carved Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy, both of which I free drew stencils for first.
