    Anyone carve pumpkins this year?

    Anyone carve any pumpkins this year? I really enjoy carving pumpkins but haven't had the time the past few years, but I had time this year!

    Our idea was to get 3 pumpkins and all carve them with Batman/Arkham City video game in mind.. my fiance wanted to do the Bat Signal/Symbol, and I wanted to carve The Riddler and Batman. Unfortunately the bat signal didn't make it due to impatience, RIP bat signal pumpkin.. lol.

    In the end, I am pretty happy with the outcome of both my pumpkins. I wasn't expecting anything near this awesome because I haven't carved a pumpkin in quite a few years.









    If anyone carved any pumpkins this year, I would love to see! Please share!

    I scrape the inside of the pumpkin where I am going to carve, so much that the pumpkin wall is like and inch-1/2in thick. It makes it really easy to carve really detailed images, the only problem is, the image won't last as long and will start to droop sooner. I did both of these over the past 3 days to avoid drooping before tonight.

    I didn't know how to make my own pumpkin stencil so I googled photos of batman and riddler spray paint stencils and used them as guidelines to make the pumpkin. I'm glad you like them!

    Makes me do this cause I wasn't expecting them to turn out so awesome.

    I have a friend who does this sort of thing,
    and he helped me find this "article" & photos:

    Biggest carver I have ever seen!
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.
