Re: Updated Rick Grimes

 by Zombie Pumpkins! ¦  Sun Nov 11, 2018 5:03 pm ¦  Forum: ZP Pattern Discussion ¦  Topic: Updated Rick Grimes ¦  Replies: 2 ¦  Views: 193

It's tough to keep up with patterns for an ensemble cast on a long-running TV show. So many characters come and go, and those that stick around change their look. Clearly Rick is (was) the main focus, but I may have missed the timely opportunity to give him an updated pattern. Ah, well it was good w...

Thanks for continually carving Zombie Pumpkins patterns! I see that you took advantage of a lot of the themes sets (as did I) like Coco and Hocus Pocus. Since you posted a collage and not a single photo group shot, I'm wondering if you carved these over time, or were they all on display at once? Sur...

Awesome yard! You can tell you put a lot of thought into the little things. So many various scenes happening. Spiders building webs over here, skeletons riding their skeletal animals over there. Bathed in so much colored light. And of course, pumpkin carvings mixed in too. This is the kind of displa...

Perhaps a slight stretch (are we suggesting to eat Camilla for Thanksgiving dinner?) but I love the Muppets so I'm open to any excuse to make patterns of them.

Awesome job, Raven! I'm not surprised that people wanted to take photos with you and your husband. Isn't that fun? You're a bit like a celebrity, and you're free to act as strange as you want, because you're in character. Valak is a nice choice. Popular this year, and really effective with the crack...

Ryan's 2018 Halloween Costume - The Goblin

For Halloween 2018 I was a goblin. Goblins don't have a sweet tooth for candy. They prefer bad food. Specifically naughty children. I left my forest hut to go trick-or-treating in human neighborhoods, going door-to-door collecting kids to fill my bag. https://www.zombiepumpkins.com/images/forum/2018...

Thank you. :orange_heart: I haven't tallied up the numbers quiet yet, but it looks like it was a successful year, so we should have a nice donation to make to the National Heart Association. I will make the donation at the end of 2018 (which will be here before we know it), so there will be a full y...

It's hard for me to stop creating and doing all the other duties for Zombie Pumpkins, but time is up! The day is here. Time to step away from the computer, light my pumpkins, and put on my costume. I look forward to filling my trick-or-treat bag with lots of naughty children to eat later. I'll be ba...

Thanks Ajax. I hope your aunt will be okay. :orange_heart: And yeah, it was the same friend of mine that inspired the elephant pattern. She left her mark on this site, that's for sure.

I have at least a couple in mind, but not ready to release. And if I get slammed with emails and shop orders in the next few days, I may not have time to finish them. These last few days are always up in the air for me. All I know is that I'll be kept very busy... with something!

Ooh, I notice it's available on Spotify: Universal Monsters Maze Soundtrack Yeah, this is really good.
