Pumpkin Megapost

I was going to do “Pumpkin Week” but decided to cram all of my crazy pumpkin love into a giant post, just in case not everyone shares my extreme Halloween enthusiasm.

First, I bring you Pumpkin Way, a simple site with some pumpkins that have major personality. I like the technique a lot, particularly how the shape of the pumpkin matches the facial expression.

Just hoover your cursor over the pumpkin to see it displayed here.


The Travel Channel featured Tom Nardone’s Extreme Pumpkins on a Halloween special. Nardone is a fan of using unconventional materials to carve ugly, grotesque and otherwise shocking designs. Pyrotechnics are also involved.

The contest winners on the site are extremely creative, often employing very unique materials.

“Frozen in Time” pumpkin:

“Burger” pumpkin:

Even the semi-traditional carving examples are entertaining:

Here is the site.
And books:
Extreme Pumpkins
Extreme Pumpkins II


Now onto Pumpkin Gutter who has some of my favorite carving examples, and I’m indebted to them for enabling to me post ALIEN .V. PREDATOR pumpkins!

However, there are incredible pumpkins of all types/themes on the site.


And lastly, though it pales in comparison to all of the above, my own Cheshire Cat pumpkin from last year:
