This is my version of a Death Star Pumpkin. Standing about 1 1/2 foot tall, I grabbed this pumpkin from our local yearly Pumpkin Patch last night and started cleaning and carving just after 9 this morning. Finished I believe 9:30 this evening. I had three short 10 minute breaks. I used Brite Lite Pegs for some added pop. I have seen many of them online and felt it was time to make one for myself. So, with a warm heart, sore bottom and worn out arms and hands, I'd like to wish you all a very Happy Halloween 2012. ^_^

It's a crappy picture, but I didn't want to leave y'all hanging on Halloween. ;)
I'll replace it with professional snaps when I get some. In the meantime, be good and don't eat all your candy at once.

I'm sorry...the image quality is poor. I've been sick for nearly a week and barely got this out in time for Halloween. Looks pretty cool in person. Not so much in the photo...

But yeah...Happy Halooween.

Arrr mateys! It be th' time o' year fer me late piratical pumkin! One o' these years I be plannin' carve up sumthin' for International Talk Like a Pirate Day proper, but this be not the year!

Since me treasure chest be gettin' low on yer pirate patterns, I had to be makin' do with th' scurvy Cap'n Jack Sparrow. Th' catch be from off the port o' Zombie Pumpkins: [link] This here salty pumkin be makin' him look a migh' bit strange, an' I couldn't decide if he should be walking the plank! But we best be startin' off th' pumkin season right, so I threw him out onto th' poop deck instead o' the brig!

Obligatory group picture time! I'm a little late with it, since uploading all the pumpkins was really a chore. And this picture didn't turn out as well as I would have liked, so I was feeling meh about uploading it.

With all the other ones being cut through, they shine so bright that the Hogwarts crest doesn't show up as well. Honestly I should have thinned it more from the back, but that thing was so huge it would have been a pain. Voldemort could have used another soak before I took these too, his nose had gone all funny. And Snape has some super candle action going on. I have no idea why Dumbledore is so bright either, he was using the same candle type as the others. And to top it all off, my camera was running out of room! I used up the last of it taking these. Complain complain...

It was a good Halloween though. I had decided on a Harry Potter theme back in the summer, when I went to Leakycon. I actually had 10 pumpkins planned, but ran out of time. There was supposed to be Hagrid, two owls, and a Dark Mark to go with these guys. I also tossed around the idea for another really big detailed one like the crest, but I ruled that out pretty early. While carving, I watched the first six movies. I didn't have the last two on DVDs, so instead I watched Nightmare Before Christmas and Advent Children to finish it up on Monday.

I'm hoping for a less busy Halloween next year, so I can bring an even better display!

Ciruelo's Dark Dsurion ended up making a terrific pattern. I spent about 20 hours massaging the pattern to give me something to carve.

I consider this one of my best. I spent 11 1/2 hours carving him , and could count my mistakes on one hand with fingers left over. People were pretty floored with this.

Dragon pumpkin carved for my boyfriend. Instead of punching out all the pieces he liked the outline effect.

Never did attempt to do this one again. I am thinking of redoing on a "fake" pumpkin to keep forever and ever. Carved in 1995. Pumpkin Masters pattern. Animals Category. :pumpkin:
