Cool! Did the Easter holiday inspire the rabbit choice? I think I carved him once for Easter. Fright night is also a classic image from a memorable poster. It works as a Halloween design, even if you don't know the movie. But it's a cool movie too! I need some more pumpkin shelving too. I think I'm ...

I can visualize this pattern. The hood, the eye sockets, the fabric wraps. Lots of lines and shadows for stencil connection points. 🤔

Pixie and Dixie and Mr. Jinks! Wow, I haven't thought of them for ages.

I have shelving to display 36 foam pumpkins, year-round. That's probably my limit for how many I'm planning to keep. Beyond that, I'll probably start selling the older ones to make room for new ones.

Rodney Canada welcomes Ron (from 2021) and Sandy (from 2007). You've covering a mix of old and new. Did you mention how many uncarved foam pumpkins you have to work with? I'm looking at about a dozen blank canvases in front of me right now. I don't care a ton of foam-kins, so that should be enough t...

I love seeing these classic choices, immortalized in foam. Wow, the Edward Scissorhands pattern is from 2002. Two decades ago! Makes me feel old. 😆

Flintstones are iconic. The first prime time cartoon and the longest running cartoon (until the Simpsons, I believe). But without 3D shading, simple cartoons are hard to translate into stencils. The facial features often don't touch, or have to be connected with very thin, delicate lines. Or you can...

Smart idea to carve your way through your older stock of foam pumpkins at this time. We appreciate the warning about old foamies drying out and becoming more hard. Makes sense I suppose. Better to cut while the foam is still supple. Still, you have the skills to make it work!

"Cat Got Your Tongue" and "Sandy Gauze" and "Custom Frankie." Those are truly early era designs. But the classics never go out of style. Glad to see you filling out your bucket list of carves. :thumbsup:

Also, if you haven't seen it before, take a look at this quick contest promo video that the LAIKA Studios staff created. I'm flattered to see their talented artists using my pumpkin patterns (with zombie puppets from ParaNorman nearby!)

Were the winners announced somewhere? Ah yes, the winners were announced on LAIKA's social media accounts on November 8, 2021. The rules stated that contestants could use the Zombie Pumpkins LAIKA patterns or create their own original designs. Unfortunately none of the chosen winners used my patter...

Yes! Get a jump on Halloween this year! Well, I suppose you always begin early. These are a great start. The K is really classy, and the Gloom and Broom witch is one that I plan to carve myself soon too! I want to save some of my original character designs in foam pumpkins. Roll on! :jack_o_lantern:

Happy New Year, everyone! The season of evil begins with the birth of a new year. On a mountain of pumpkins, in the castle of pain, he sat on a throne of blood! Vigo the Carpathian was not exactly a man of the people. Also known as Vigo the Cruel, Vigo the Torturer, Vigo the Despised, and Vigo the U...

Ajax, it looks like you might have a secret Santa. When John McClane came out to the coast, to get together and have a few laughs, he didn't expect to be squeezed into a jack 'o lantern. Now he knows what a TV dinner feels like. Yippee-ki-yay, pumpkin carver! 🖨️ Print Jo...

Incredible work, DeadKing! Your display is very classic, but at the same time unique and in your style. Jack o' lantern faces are traditional, but you have some unusual faces in the mix. You have the benefit of dressing your scene with lots of small gourds. I wish I had easier access to that sort of...
