Tonight was pumpkin carving night at the house of the Azn Badger.
I’ve been “a little too old” for Jack O’ Lanterns for probably 5 years now, but as long as my mother insists on keeping the tradition alive; I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of it.
That being said, this year my dad “acquired” (don’t ask…) about 6 big ass pumpkins, leaving me, my mother, my brother and his girlfriend with our work cut out for us.
As far as annual pumpkin carvings go, this one was a lot of fun.
Not only that, but as you’ll see below, the pumpkins ended up pretty awesome.
We’ll start off with the Azn Badger’s:
- Don’t mind the smudged mess in the top-left corner. That’s just my brother…
That’s what I call a mother-fuckin’ pumpkin!
In case you couldn’t tell, the face was somewhat influenced by the Predator of the franchise of the same name.
Oh yeah, and the eyes came from Venom from Spider-Man…
Yeah, I have no original thoughts whatsoever.
ANYWAY, next up is my brother’s pumpkin:
The first word that came to mind when I saw my brother’s pumpkin was “cute.”
That’s right, I called a man’s pumpkin “cute.”
I’m not a fairy or anything, I’m just calling it like it is.
Also, don’t go make any assumptions about my brother just ’cause his pumpkin’s cute n’shit.
My brother’s a fuckin’ PIMP, and don’t you forget it, son.
Next up is my brother’s girlfriend’s pumpkin:
Described by it’s creator as looking vaguely like a “confused baby,” this pumpkin has as much capacity to inspire as it does terrify those that gaze upon it.
Honestly, looking at this thing gives me the willies.
It’s like one of those faceless white masks that that one breakdance troupe wore awhile back.
You know it’s a face, you know it’s female; but you haven’t the slightest clue what it wants from you/wants to do to you.
That being said, let’s move on to my mom’s pumpkin before I die a horrible The Ring-esque death as a result of looking at this pumpkin for too long:
- My mom is… “Artistic”… Yeah, we’ll go with that…
This was another “cute” pumpkin, though “odd” would probably fit just as well too.
The construction of it is actually kind of interesting, as the massive “nose” of the pumpkin is actually attached to the lid portion of the top of the pumpkin, which causes the whole thing to look kind of like a Spartan helmet.
Again, I have no original thoughts of my own. All I know is taken from movies and videogames.
*Ahem!* Anyway, my mom always goes out of her way to make fun and decidedly original pumpkins every year, and this time around was no exception.
Anyway, just thought I’d share some photos and save myself an evening of writing.
Take care this Halloween!
