Got a late start today on my real pumpkins and only managed to gut 8 before the dark and cold chased me back inside. BUT! I have borrowed an industrial heater so I can get the other 24 gutted and start tracing tomorrow. I took some time to knock out one last foam pumpkin tonight! And WOW is she cree...

Thank you everybody! I'm really happy with the way it came out! The pumpkin in the back was kind of a DUH moment :lol: I couldn't get the pins out of the bottom and shoved it in the back window to look for my pliers, saw the reflection and just left it there! Amandap - Thank you!! I made the shirt a...

So do you think if we all mailed Ryan a bag or two of pumpkin shavings he'd have enough to make a vat or two of this?? :twisted:

The dry run for 2011's costume was a success! I didn't wear my new new boots (Renaissance Faire dust + black velvet = B.A.D.) but I think the addition of Cat Got Your Tongue more than makes up for it! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v69/starparty/Halloween%202011/305818_263798156988669_14302323573...

*shudder* That WAS a scary story but I'm glad it had a happyish ending! Also, he is 16! He's old enough to be making $ to pay for the damages! At the very least he should be pressed into pumpkin servitude for a couple hours as repayment! I'm not familiar with Monster Mud, but holes in the lid isn't ...

Thank you! I'm super excited about them! I usually pick out a costume theme to give full sized candy bars to anybody in that costume. Last year it was the Old Spice Guy and I didn't give a single one out. I *was* going to do Angry Birds this year to go with the display... but if the internet buzz is...

I think it looks great! The trouble you had just ups the creep factor for me.

Maybe the pumpkin was POSSESSED ALREADY?! :shock:

I admit, when it comes to selection I am spoiled ROTTEN :lol: There are patches *everywhere* with some truly wicked monsters just waiting to be carved up! The poor girls at Hershbergers are still not quite used to the crazy lady that shows up and drools all over their pumpkin piles every year. The f...
