So last night my roommate Sammy and I decided to carve our Halloween pumpkin. She was busy sanding and spray-painting her new dresser so I actually handled all of the gutting and carving of the pumpkin. It was the first time in about 15 years that I have carved a pumpkin and happened to be the first time in my life I have ever done the whole thing by myself.
I sketched a few prototypes before drawing them on the pumpkin (Disclaimer: I'm no artist, never claimed to be, I know these look like an 8-year old child drew them.).
After all was said and done, I decided to go with the "upside down u" eyes and "boo!" / scared face mouth.
I was so excited and proud of my work that I couldn't even wait to go buy a proper jack-o-lantern candle and just grabbed the scented candle from the upstairs bathroom. So I lit the lavender breeze candle, placed inside the hollowed out pumpkin, turned off the lights and stepped back to admire my work:
The mouth looks like a glory hole :( My artistic genius created a fuck pumpkin, a fumpkin if you will. I think I need to make another trip to the pumpkin patch to try this again. This next time I'll try to make sure my Halloween spirit doesn't result in pumpkin porn.
