If you're a long time follower, you'd know I have had some epic pumpkin shooting (with a potato cannon) in the past. Funky story. Click here.
Anyway, we got our pumpkins today, and I decided to carve a penguin. Simple. Cute. It's so perfect.
This is my beautiful pumpkin. (It has a little bumpy gross thing. This is a picture of the back of it. Pumpkins get acne. So do I. Perfect fit.)
And this is my penguin design. (As you can see, I printed it off of www.fun-with-pictures.com. Thanks guys. It makes a great pumpkin design.) I didn't carve the letters, just the penguin. Celebrating with pudding. (Also, the newspaper below says they have Fresh Island Creek Oysters for only $5.99 a pound. Ew.)
It's hard to see, but I taped the penguin paper to my pumpkin, and used this pointy tool to stab holes into my pumpkin so I could carve without the paper. Transfer design. I'm sure you're all familiar with this concept. You can sorta see I started cutting by it's head. Sorry dude. But it's a pumpkin.
Final pumpkin carving product! The arms were a little hard, but I think it came out pretty great. Leave your comments below.
And, possibly my favorite part about it, the guts. (The metal thing there is just my carving spoon thing.)
I know, gross, but come on. It's not that bad. Fun splattering it.. imagine that in a paint gun. Laser tag... I want to play that so bad right now... oh well. I can get very competitive during laser tag. It's awesome.
With vanilla ice cream.
Plus apple cider
(Is that poetry? I don't think so. I don't know. But I just love apples. So why not share that fact.)
Have a happy halloween everyone!! Let me know what funky costumes you'll be wearing! Comment below. I'm going to be an eskimo. As much as I would LOVE to share with you what it looks like... I'm not aloud to. I'm not 13 yet. Dad's rules. Oh well. I mean, I could show you the fabric, but not me wearing it. Any picture with me in it = not allowed on my blog til I'm 13. I promise I'll show you on May 14th!!! I'll get it all ready the night before and my face becomes a part of the intertubes May 14th 12:00 AM. Stay tuned.
