Zombie Pumpkins For the Win!
Ahhh, all y'all are gonn' like this year's pumpkins . . .
An unexpected diorama outside the house . . .
Strangely discoloured, and this one's face can just barely be recognised . . . what happened?!
I'll tell you what happened: the dead pumpkins rose from the grave!
Stay away you soulless pumpkin freaks!
(Chk-chk!) Enough is enough! I've had it with these muthafuckin' zombie pumpkins!
Let's see, extra info . . . the shotgun is various pieces of cardboard and packing tape (my two favourite construction materials). The pumpkin gibs that are on the "orange hero pumpkin" are noticeably from the white zombie pumpkins (and splattered on him as opposed to coming out of him). Zombie pumpkins don't have pupils (just like real zombie people!). Also, this year I actually carved canines into my pumpkin teeth (ridiculous amount of pointless detail, but it happened!).
And for those of you who don't know, all of these were carved with only a single old, deathly-looking filleting knife with a weathered wooden handle. I refuse to use stencils or carving kits with the little saws. I can't bring myself to do it. So yes, that's Halloween 2007.
Oh, and the kids were sad there was no ninja this year. A shame, but also cool that they care to remember. So yay!
God I love carving pumpkins . . . . .
