I tend to cut the lids pretty close to the stem on the front, with more of the opening behind the stem. I figure that leaves more room on the front for the carving, without the lid line getting in the way.

Heh, well I did find myself saying "Howdy" a lot. Usually in a gruff, intimidating voice. A few of the trick-or-treaters had guns with their costumes, which they immediately aimed at me and starting saying "bang, bang." I said, "Hey kid, look at my chest, don't ya think I got enough bullet holes!" The kids then giggled, and continued filling me with imaginary lead.

Not bad at all, actually. The mask had slits above the false eyes to see through. I cut those slits a bit larger to help with vision. Unlike previous years where I used a mask, I didn't walk into anything or trip over any pumpkins, so that's a good sign.
It was a bit warm to wear, but it was a cold night, so things balanced out. I liked that it's just a front face mask, rather than a full over-the-head mask. Makes it easy to slip on an off. Which became necessary when I tried to eat some pumpkin cake through it...
Thanks for the comments, everyone. Good ideas for the belt buckle, CorpseBride. It will get more use, surely.
