Pumpkin Carving for Halloween: Do You Go for Scary or Funny Faces?
Wallace and Gromit
Wallace and Gromit
Nothing says Halloween like the two claymation characters Wallace and Gromit.
This pumpkin is a little creepy... but certainly gets an A+ for creativity!
Drunk on Seeds
Someone got a little excited a little too early. We like this one a) for its humor and b) come on, when's the next time you'll ever see a sick, puking pumpkin? We're sure this inspired copycats all over the nation.
Osama bin... Pumpkin??
We're not sure why anyone would be inspired to have OBL on his or her doorstep even if it is for Halloween but hey, to each his own.
This pumpkin-man seems to have gotten a little angry and taken it out on his other pumpkin friends. NOT COOL.
It's a Pumpkin Eat Pumpkin World
What can we say? It's hard out there for a pumpkin.
Close Your Eyes
Don't look! Oh... too late. They got you.
Creepy. Don't want to run into him in a dark alley.
Night and Day
If I were the pumpkin on the right side, I'd be making that face too.
The pumpkin ran away with the baby. If you like dark humor, I guess?
Mr. Potatohead Meets Pumpkins
While this doesn't look like it took a lot of skill, it's still pretty cute.
These guys are going to get you!
I have no words for this one. I can't even look at it it gives me the creeps.
See, there's a pumpkin for everyone.
This one's done by Ray Villafane. You can see more of his wacky and awesome stuff here: http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/39527582/ns/today-today_halloween_guide/.
And last but not least, we leave you with a Hannibal Lecter pumpkin. Hannibal likes humans, so make sure if you stumble upon him in your trick-or-treating adventures you steer clear.
Every year it was tradition in my family that I carved the pumpkins that would sit on our front doorstep. Sadly, the only ones that saw the pumpkins were me, a few moths and the lone UPS truck driver or plumber -- our driveway was super long, windy, steep and scary and we didn't get a lot of trick-or-treaters -- but this didn't stop me from honing my craft. I won a pumpkin-carving contest in the third (or was it fourth?) grade for my pumpkin covered in cottonballs. I called him "Snowman" and he even had a carrot nose to boot.
So it's only appropriate that the first Halloween-themed post from SodaHead fun be about pumpkins and the best creative carvings I've come across online.
Send us some of yours and we'll compare notes.
