Re: Happy Halloween!
I didn't see any Star Wars related costumes, oddly enough. I saw two brothers as the Joker and Batman, a family with a pioneer theme (they were actually pretty cute), a dad and his son as sumo wrestlers, some of the standard stuff you see at Halloween, and beyond that a bunch of half-assed "costumes" (if they even wore any...). I don't like it when people come and don't dress up. I don't care how old you are if you come to the door, as long as you're in full costume. Otherwise, no, go home and try again.
I'm really glad you guys like my pumpkin, it means a lot to me (even though its going to get thrown out in a few days XD). I might try and take another picture, this time with flash so you can clearly see what I carved. Though its starting to look a little messed up now. I made it by first carefully sketching out my idea on paper (an hour or so to get it right), and planning out how to carve it. Then I re-drew Scrooge onto the pumpkin and carefully carved him out, and then carved out the background. That took about 3 hours. I used a reference, but did it entirely freehand. The carving itself was based on the Moon level from the first Ducktales NES game.
Oh and I like yours too, Cin. But, how do you light it? Is the hole in the bottom? Just curious.
