Huge file warning! You have been warned!

This is part 3 of 3 of the Pumpkin Carving Tutorial that I have spent the past week working my butt off on. I've been trying to make a proper tutorial with pictures for years now, and I've finally come up with something I'm proud of.

Many thanks go to my friend ~TamIsMyFather for proofreading these for me, making me use hyphens, and helping me make sense!

I'll do my best to answer any questions that may come up, so ask away! I'd also love to see any pumpkin carvings that you guys make, so feel free to send those my way!

If only I had know about this when I was younger! I could've had my mom doing more anime carvings for me!! Oh well, maybe next year I'll have the time to try carving a pumpkin myself!

Another year using your sweet advice on a pumpkin. I still need to build a decent set of tools for this (when I can spare the cash). Anyway, had to come back and remember what to do to preserve the pumpkin. Let's see if the fridge can handle this...

I'm glad I could help again! I've been wanting to upgrade some of my tools myself, but I am also lacking the spare cash for it this year.

Aaaah my poor fridge is totally devoid of food thanks to the stupid pumpkins. Like I have some soda at the bottom, some milk and a bunch of sauce stuff stuck in the door, and then pumpkins all the way xD

Who needs food when you have the Halloween spirit to feed yourself with?
johwee's avatar

I needz no food, I have personal reserves. Yeah, I'm a fatass, fuck me, right?

Well I was going to use this guide... But, I kid you not, every single store is sold out of pumpkins.... Which also means no delicious pumpkin seeds for me... T_T
johwee's avatar
Oh no that's terrible! I really hate when pumpkins disappear early :( It's like the worst possible thing!
Pokeeeveegirl's avatar
Yeah I know! What really sucked was the fact that I'd just found an awesome pumpkin seed recipe that my friend showed me. Cinnamon and Cajun pumpkin seeds! I HATE cinnamon but these... it may very easily have been the greatest pumpkin seeds I've ever had... Hopefully stores will keep them stocked for Thanksgiving (for homemade pumpkin pies and such) and I'll be able to make the seeds myself...
johwee's avatar
Dude that sounds delicious! Do you still have the recipe? I'd like to try it myself!
Pokeeeveegirl's avatar
Basically you just cook them like regular pumpkin seeds, but instead of just salting them, you shake on some Cajun seasoning with a dash of cinnamon! So easy! And the stores are still not selling pumpkins... I'm scared that they aren't restocking them anymore. *sigh* But I'll find a way!
johwee's avatar
I'll have to try that on some of the pumpkins I saved from this weekend! And I hope that you'll find pumpkins somehow! Are there any farmers markets around where you live?
Pokeeeveegirl's avatar
Nope. Not for a good few hours drive. Oh well. If I don't find any, I can keep my hopes up for next year.
johwee's avatar
Definitely bummer! Maybe closer to Thanksgiving they'll have some.
