The 2012 Collection
The Pale Man (Pan's Labyrinth), Frank (Donnie Darko)
We decided to do these designs a year ago. The hubby carved Pale Man and I did Frank. These were our first major non-cut-through designs. We used templates we found online, although I modified mine to make the eyes a lot freakier.
For this one, I modified a template I found online to make the spider creepier. This was my "test pumpkin" for my first non-cut-through design.
This was the hubby's test design for his first non-cut-through. Our daughter requested something that wasn't scary!
Jack Skellington (A Nightmare Before Christmas)
Jack was my "test pumpkin" for my new carving saws.
The 2011 Collection
I'm really proud of this one, because I created the design from scratch using various online images for inspiration.
This was my husband's attempt to exorcise his demons. The Headless Horseman scares the bejesus out of him!
The 2010 Collection
Sleeping Beauty, Ash (Army of Darkness)
These were our first attempts to branch out beyond creative faces for our jack-o'-lanterns. The hubby wanted to honor his beloved Bruce Campbell and I wanted to do something fun for our daughter. These certainly whet our appetites for more challenging designs!
