I see your artistic talents reach into many disciples. Fantastic work here. You really went all in on the Twin Peaks idea. I usually have such a mishmash of characters in my pumpkin displays. It takes some discipline to stick to one theme. Cooool. They're all good, but for some reason I'm drawn to t...

Ha! Adorable. Fleece and felt are great materials for this. The movie characters have similar textures on their simple clothing. And I agree with April - smart way to accomplish the hair! Lightweight material to allow for comfort and height! I hope other people see these photos and use it for inspir...

April, your makeup work is inspiring! Like you, I often do flat painted face makeup for Halloween. It's faster and more comfortable, and you can get a surprising amount of 3D effect with shading. I also like making my face painting cartoony and exaggerated. That said, you really blow people away whe...

That’s a shame about the Mario Bros taking a tumble, but your efforts to fix it paid off. You still have the carving and learned some lessons in the process. Great selection from you and the family this time around. Very classic Halloween, with lots of jack o’ lantern faces. :jack_o_lantern: I actua...

Welcome Luigi! Yes, things are quiet here during the off-season. But there are plenty of old posts that you can read, learn from, and use to get excited for the coming Halloween season.

So... what was your “failure that happened last Halloween”? :thinking:

I think the largest pumpkin I've carved was just a bit over 50 lb. So some of you surely have me beat. :surprised: I'd like to tackle one of these several-hundred-pound monsters someday. I'm not scared! I imagine the process is familiar. Just takes more time and larger versions of the usual tools.

Dadja - That's the nature of a surprise secret contest, I guess. You can win a prize for something you posted on the forum years ago. :lol: Congrats on all that you have going on. But never forget your pumpkin roots! I realized that for you, international shipping is involved, and there's a chance y...

Whoops! I started a post about the winners of this contest, and then left it sitting as a draft. Here are the surprise winners for this makeshift 2017 forum contest. Each winner can choose any (currently available) item from the Shocking Shop to receive as their prize. To the winners listed below - ...

Probably not, I'm sorry to say. While I love the "side business" of selling ZP products, most people are just here for digital carving patterns. At this time, I don't sell quite enough physical merchandise to justify stocking large quantities. These items have to be made in bulk amounts and paid for...

If anyone is still having trouble with this, let me know. I've been trying to recreate the problem, but I can't seem to see it now. I'm hoping it's something that has corrected itself (maybe there was a browser update for iPhone browsers since this was discovered) but I'll keep an eye out for it.

I actually started a George A. Romero pattern a few years ago. Even before his passing, her seemed like a perfect candidate for a pattern, with his iconic look (those large glasses, especially). But I wasn't happy with the likeness on my first attempt. I'll definitely have to revisit this idea.

I'm humbled by the support every year, thanks to all you minions. After a little personal hiatus, I'm hard at work again, planning for Halloween 2018. I know I say it every year, but I'm so excited for the new ideas. I think it will be the best year yet (year 16, by the way, wow!)
