Saturday we had a few people over for our annual pumpkin carving tradition. Thanks to Zombie Pumpkins for always making each year a success and giving us and our guests so many awesome stencils to choose from.
If you have followed my blog for many years or have checked out the Remains page of my site, you know that from time to time if a stencil I want to do is not available then I create my own. I have done Baby Firefly from House of 1000 Corpses, Lily Munster (before there was one) and even Pee Wee Herman. However, this year as soon as I saw the Christina Ricci/Wednesday Addams stencil (on the Zombie Pumpkins site) I instantly wanted to do it. Frank felt the exact same way when he saw “The Bow” (as Henry Rollins calls him) as Ziggy Stardust.
The entire time as I was carving I kept saying quotes from the movie. Such as “I’m a homicidal maniac. They look just like everyone else” ha ha.
Here was the end results of how our pumpkins turned out…
And here is a shot of the whole group’s pumpkins together….
Did you carve pumpkins this year? What did you carve?
Frank and I spent last night with a couple of our friends carving pumpkins in our dungeon (aka our basement).
I carved Jareth the Goblin King from my all time favorite movie and Frank carved Angus from AC/DC
Luis carved Michael Myers and Kayle carved the Crypt Keeper. Thank you again to Zombie Pumpkins for another year of providing us with the coolest stencils!
This year starting in May I actually started to grow pumpkins from the seeds of the pumpkins we grew last year. This was my first attempt at ever doing this and it was actually pretty fun to see them grow. The vines grew pretty crazy in our little area (we have a condo with barely a yard). So I had to keep up with pruning and making sure they didn’t go into the neighbors patio ha ha. When it came to carving last night I couldn’t bear to cut my babies up ha ha ha. Plus the little one refuses to grow old. I call him Pee Wee…..our little rebel ha ha…..
They are going to remain uncut sitting on our porch as extra decor with a sense of pride ha ha ha
Saturday was our annual pumpkin carving night with our friends. Sometimes I like to use my creative skills to come up with my own stencil instead of using one off the internet or in the books you get at the store. You can see ones I have created and carved on the Remains page of my website. If I am not feeling it or am in love with a stencil I find online then I go with that instead. It’s all in how I am feeling that year.
This year I decided to go with one from my favorite stencil sites called ZombiePumpkins.com. I believe I have mentioned them before in past carving posts because we tend to use them every year for our pumpkin carving parties.

Frank’s Alien Pumpkin
If you have not already heard and are looking for some inspiration for carving. My husband’s band Axe Man’s Bridge is doing a pumpkin decorating/carving contest. The pumpkin has to be somehow be Axe Man’s Bridge themed. Check it out on their Facebook page and their news blog!
