Nerdtastic Pumpkin Carvings!



I love carving pumpkins... though I must admit, I'm not very good at it.

 I've tried the templates and sometimes they came out okay. I suppose I'm a bit of a traditionalist - just draw a picture with a magic marker and go for it. 
 

 
Nowadays, pumpkin-carving has grown into a genuine art form. Some are mind blowing, though occasionally I question their techniques. I realized the popular thing to do now-a-days is buy those fake pumpkins then carve them - (which seems a bit like cheating). I mean, come on... the best part of carving a pumpkin is gutting it!



 There's a whole process to it. From cutting the top on the proper angle (to stop it from falling into the pumpkin) to scraping out the guts with a big spoon. And if you were lucky, maybe mom would cook up the pumpkin seeds with some salt! 

Anywho, here are a few of my favorite pumpkin carvings I found on the interwebs. I did my best to find and display only authentic pumpkins.

  1. Great collection of pics! And I agree, gutting it is best part.

    That Godzilla one deserves a first place ribbon. But, Napoleon Dynamite?! Ugh...I hope some punk teen smashed it.

    1. Yeah - I'm a bit jealous of most of them. I wish I had these skills.

    I was especially amused to see the Oregon Trail one, and the Napoleon Dynamite one.
