Every year the website gets a new title (like sequels to a horror movie), with a new design elements to fit that theme. We've had everything from ghosts to clowns to witches. So what will the site be called for 2018? Take a guess (or three guesses). Winner will receive their choice of one item from ...

Re: Mayor of Haddonfield 2018 Carves

Whether it's watermelons or windowkins, I'm happy to see that the crave to carve is strong... we often can't wait for pumpkins to become available. I've always been impressed with the popularity of the Creature Reacher pattern. It's one of my oldest, and I never thought too much of it. But it seems ...

Thanks for starting this topic, Mayor. I like the idea of hearing everyone's top 10 most desired patterns. Helps me decide what to make (although some of these might be ready to go already :thinking: ). These top 10 most wanted lists can also serve as a fun informal competition. At the end of the Ha...

You bet there will be a name/theme change, redesign, and plenty of new patterns. I've been working on all these things nonstop. :grin: Regarding a site redesign - yes, it can take some effort and time, but I think it's necessary to continually upgrade the technology used behind the scenes. I can kee...

"It only comes one night a year… but what if Halloween... came to life?" I love seeing all these monsters loose on Halloween night, amid the pumpkins and candy. Looks like even the masks and decorations will become magically alive. Who will be making this movie part of the Halloween plans this year?...

Those type of inflatable decorations can be hit or miss with me, but the shape and expression of your blow-up mummy is hilarious. :grin: The stairs covered in pumpkins are epic. Steps are just a natural display surface for pumpkins, tiered like bleachers. That's a mighty fine porch too, love the sto...

Sounds like you know your trivia about classic Hollywood. As soon as you mentioned the name Jackie Coogan, I recognized the name as the Uncle Fester actor. I do know a bit about The Addams Family and The Munsters. I feel a connection to them... they're just like my real family (but a bit more normal...

Impressive, as always. Some of these have an insane amount of detail. You've done so many carvings, I bet you seek out patterns that will give you new challenges. Do you carve anything that tickles your fancy, or do you try to do patterns to fit certain themes? I do see a lot of classic Hollywood, P...

Maybe I'm a dork, but I love seeing the planning process for Halloween props as much as the final product. The preliminary sketches, schematics and notes... great insight into the process, and a testament to the care and commitment to doing things right. These displays show what's possible with a li...

I understand the itch to carve, for sure. And Chaplin is a good choice. Quite a talented guy! Your carving looks like a photo and does him justice. Stoney, I'm curious... if you were to do the math for all the pumpkins you carve in a year, what percentage would you say are artificial pumpkins, and w...

Adorable photo Mark. The passage of time is evident by how small your son was at the time. Creating Zombie Pumpkins designs (and consequently, celebrating Halloween in a big way) has been part of my life since 2002. And maybe of you have been around for a good portion of that. Lives change, and some...
