Full Version: ~jack-o-lanterns.. =D
Apocalypse Tribe HQ > Headquarters > The Lounge
~since this be the month for spooky things to temporarily rule the gamut, jack-o-lanterns also add to the ambience; this has always been my favorite part of halloween.. ^^ a chance to carve a personal symbol of what the holiday means, & seeing the finished work lit up during the evenings inspires an eerie atmosphere of haunting beauty or, just plain haunting.. ;p

~i was searching for potential ideas for this year (yah, i'm carving a pumpkin ~ 'tis tradition.. ;), i came across this site; nowadays, i guess i shouldn't be surprised.. =. if i think it, then chances are for certain that someone has it listed somewhere on the internet.. anyways, here is the link.. ^^


~now here be a dedicated soul - there are galleries for pumpkins, melons & visitor submissions...this individual has wicked ideas for carving pumpkins, & melons to boot; enjoy ~ if i come across others, then i'll post 'em here.. =)
ha! cool site. Horrible design, but still fun.
I liked reading about the origin of the jack-o-lantern.
My wifw and I have two pumpkins that we are going to carve up this weekend. I will take some photos after we are done.
The best part for me isn't the carving, but the roasting of all the seeds and having a nice snack for a few days afterwards.
~cosmic, scu.. =) you got any ideas on what to carve? i'm thinking along the lines of a section ID ~ most likely, OraN.. ^^


& not because the pumpkin is orange, of course.. ;p
HA! Section ID! That's great!!
For some reason, we always do some sort of cat like thing, and then somewhat traditional.
Here's a pic of a good idea. ^^

Yeah, held this contest every year starting in 2001. Not sure they're doing one this year, as I haven't been over there in a while. It's amazing what one can do with a pumpkin, a knife, and an imagination these days....
~the following individual takes pumpkin carving to the next level.. Oo
pumpkin sculpture.. Oo
