Nice job, TheDon! I haven't carved mine yet, usually it's afterwork the day of Halloween as it's getting dark . I'm going to try to get to them tomorrow, though. I tend to go gruesome with mine, big ones eating little ones, oozing brain material, etc.

If you want some crazy ideas check out extremepumpkins.com ! The dude makes some cool stuff some complete with fire and pyrotechnics. I got some ideas to play around with.

Nice work! Anyone else see that Halloween special on cable last night, there was a guy featured in Michigan who carved really outrageous pumpkins to the tune of $1500.00 a piece.

I might have just the one to scare you, Mistress. Think red. Think socks.

Great work!!!

But then again, we expect nothing less from the designer of the obk and Mercedesshop grille badges.

BTW, when are those grille badges coming anyway? Any word?

And a scary one for our Mistress


My kids' ones came out cute and I tried to get a pic with them all lit but my camera wouldn't cooperate. These I took with my phone and aren't great but you could at least discern what the hell they were.
