This is Halloween by AreteEirene This is Halloween by AreteEirene
This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Pumpkins scream in the dead of night

This is Halloween, everybody make a scene
Trick or treat till the neighbors gonna die of fright
It's our town, everybody scream
In this town of Halloween :sing: :pumpkin:
~This is Halloween, Nightmare Before Christmas Soundtrack, Danny Elfman


My jack-o-lantern this Halloween. Inspired by Nightmare Before Christmas, but not directly referenced per se. Just wanted slanty eyes and lots and lots of teeth :evillaugh:

I think he looks rather sinister. I am very happy with him. :D

Carved the 30th. Took over an hour, because the guts were very stubborn and did not want to come out. My hand smelled like pumpkin guts for the rest of the night, no matter how much I washed it :bleh:

We roasted some of the seeds in the toaster oven. Delicious :hungry:

Light source is a single candle. The pumpkin was approximately 20 pounds and stands about a foot tall? Something like that.

Happy Halloween everyone! My favorite holiday :evillaugh:

it's great! Not having the holiday here in Portugal, I really like to see what you guys who actually have fun on 31st Oct come up with, pumpkin-related (of course my cousins who live there always dress up and go trick-or-treating... it's a lot of fun to check their photos :giggle:)
anyway, your jack-o-lantern looks just like Jack from NBC... I love it.
thx for sharing hon...
PS your outfit was great ;)

I love holidays in general, but Halloween is my favorite. I did want my pumpkin to evoke Jack's evilness. :evillaugh:
