Still more pumpkins!

I have three more to carve tomorrow. But so far I've also carved these.

This one had really gnarly bumps all over it. So I knew I wanted to carve a face on it. But damn that was the hardest carve I ever did. The skin was so thick I broke two pumpkin knives. I was sweating like crazy and my arms were sore when I finally finished. 
This one was an experiment in carving a pumpkin in reverse. Where you look through the shell. It reminded me of those dioramas we used to make in school.

Love the reversed one, those are some awesome pumpkin-carving skills you have there! And theres even such a thing as a pumpkin knive? Well, you learn something new everyday :P

Those are really cool. That last one really looked difficult to do.

I have to say it is great to see all your hard work. It is nice that you enjoy the holiday so much. Have fun today!

Wow, those are fantastic! After hearing about your carving party I was inspired to throw an impromptu one of my own. I thought you might appreciate the pumpkin I carved...

Happy Halloween!

Jorge el Pumpkin Supremo have you ever posted any photos of yourself when you were a little boy??
maybe one with an early pumpkin carving winner?
Your 'child within' seems alive and well.....Did you do triceratops noises? for the kids...
