Aloha from Texas. Actually, we are in Hawaii. We got into Lost due to the SciFi channel showing all the episodes and instead of waiting for the weekly shows we watched them all online or rented the dvd. Good show. Here, we have visited some of the locations used in your show, especially the one on the pier at the Macademia store. Cool place. Look forward to seeing your next season.

Those are awesome! I don't have that much patience. I'm still trying to decide on my costume too. At this point I'm thinking I'm going to get a t-shirt and a sharpie and write "The Economy" or "Your 401k" on it. That's got to be scarier than anything else I could come up with! ;)

AMAZING Pumpkin work, you two!
What are you going to be for halloween? Any ideas yet?
I can't even figure out a costume for myself, although I know it will have to be a homemade creation. I guess I can always be a good old fashioned HOBO. Complete with bandana on a stick to hold all my worldly possessions. lol!!
Have a good one!

Whosit5Casie said...

Stupid question:

Why pumpkins? Why is that Americans carve pumpkins on Halloween, where the tradition come?

WatsonCrick said...

Awesome pumpkins!! As for a costume: I made once a costume of the Oggie Boogie man (know it only from nightmare before Christmas) out of old coffee sacs for my boyfriend. Hell lot of work but it looked really cool on him, he had the right figure for it... I myself went as table...glued a plate, glass, silver ware and food on a square piece of cardboard that was covered with a table cloth. Then cut a hole into the plate to stick my head through. When I sat down it looked as if my head is presented on the plate. I wore it all evening while drinking. Now I think I was crazy to do it, could have slipped and broken my neck while stuck in that cardboard...

Jorge,

Nice Jack-'o-lanterns. As for a costume for Halloween I suggest going as the grim reaper (like the pumpkin).

Mark said...

Laura, You can find an outline on wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack-o-lantern

Under North American Tradition, it says "In America, the carved pumpkin was first associated with the harvest season in general, long before it became an emblem of Halloween."

Makes sense. as does the explanation of where the name comes from under Folklore.

Only justifying 'cause wikipedia, anyone can edit, so it could all be crap.

Amy said...

I can't believe no one has suggested you dress up as Hurley.
(sorry, but it had to be said)
Great jack-o-lanterns though - carving one is enough for me, especially when they're fairly intricate like yours & not just the triangle eyes & nose & a mouth with 3 teeth.

Mark said...

...Oh, yeah. And Jorge, as for a costume idea-my wife and I are going to a costume party Saturday night. It's mostly couples dressing as famous couples. We are going as Shrek and (Ogre) Fiona. Shrek might work for you too. I know-a couple years outta date, but we're trying to keep the cost down by kinda throwing something together. Went to a costume store Tuesday night. Costumes are freakin' expensive, man. Anyway, that's my input. Cheers!

Ramon Mineiro said...

JABBA?
SORRY...

redhotjezebel said...

wow.

rude.

Laura CaƧoeiro said...

OBRIGADO, Mark.

Jorge, you can dress like the Spike of Buffy!

Kiss, Beijos.
