Happy Halloween!  
HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Hope everyone is having a good one. Mine started off rather slow. I did chores during the day like mopping and got the house cleaned up a little more. Chris didn't get any calls so after I was done with that I watched him play Fallout New Vegas for a while. I've started my own game in that too and made Owen in it already. More on that next post though. Then I started carving the last two pumpkins and I'm quite happy with how they turned out. Here's one of them in the daylight.

This was inspired by one of the drawings that my friend Killer Pumpkins made. I have my cute pumpkin as the budgie, and I've got a fun silly one so I needed the cool evil pumpkin too and this is it. Lots more pics behind the cut and a video.

Here it is with the candle in it.

My space pumpkin. I like this one so much. It's the most fun of the pumpkins and when you spin it it casts the shapes on the wall. This is my favorite side with Saturn. This was hard to make so I'm happy it turned out so well.

A shooting star and a rockt.

The sun.

A better view of Saturn and the moon.

Evil pumpkins rock!

A tiny glittler pumpkin in blue and gold.

A purple and gold pumpkin with two warty gourds in the background. So much seed saving this year from all the pumpkins and gourds I bought.

And my video of the pumpkins and my ghost lights.

Happy Halloween!

I love your evil pumpkin. I like it's reflection, too. And the space one is awesome! I love the shadows on the wall it makes. You could put it in the middle of an old fashioned record player. Actually that would be too fast :P

Have a great time :)

That one was fun to make. Fairly easy too. I don't have a record player anymore, but that would have worked.

It was a very nice quiet time.

Nice collection of pumpkins there! I like your astro-pumpkin the best.

Thanks. That's my favorite one too. It's just the most fun.

Really cool looking, of course the space one is my favorite ;)
I didnt do much, I made a butternut squash stew and had friends over for DnD.

Thanks. It's the most fun of the three.
Yum, I still need to make a pumpkin pie. Perhaps today.

I like the space pumpkin and the sparkle pumpkins. We didn't have much either, but we had a record number of 16 trick or treaters come by last night.

Thanks. The sparkle pumpkins are fun to make. That's cool. We didn't get any because we're pretty much in the country. I enjoyed my quiet Halloween though.

Awesome pumpkins! The evil one's my favorite--I love those eyes--but also I'm becoming increasingly fond of that glittery gold and purple one. What a nice color combination. I also really like the sun pattern on the space pumpkin.

And I like the setting you had the ghost lights on there. I like how their flashing made it seem kinda like they were disappearing and reappearing out of thin air.

Thanks. I needed something dark to offset the cute ones. Those glitter pumpkins are something totally differnet and fun to make. I made those with a drill. Easiest part of all the pumpkins.

I should have filled all the settings but it takes to long as some start slow then build up fast. They're a very fun thing though.

Happy Halloween! A bit late I know lol!
Those pumpkins are awesome. I've never done one that's carved all the way around. It looks effective. Nice video too!

Happy Halloween to you too. It's ok. It's good you're still in the spirit.
Thanks. I did this last year too with my other space pumpkin that was just stars and moon. I wanted more variety this time. Thanks, I made the video so people could see how they all shinned differently.
