We were inspired. Maybe not be original, but still cool in my mind. :)

Not to bad considering I've never done a pumpkin like that before! Carving by K, lighting by B.
Pent o' lantern

Each point has a differnet color for the elements and spirit. B had fun lighting it and it looks really cool.

The pumpkin...an exacto knife and a microplane. It was kinda like doing a wood carving. :)

The lighting was all B. He loves electronics so he put the lights and circuits all together from scratch.

I read a tip somewhere. Once you carve the pumpkin, coat the inside of it with Vaseline. Not sure how that would effect the wiring though.

B read something somewhere about WD40 and I saw something else about ice baths when they aren't lit. I think we'll be compiling a variety of ideas and trying them next year. Cuz let me tell ya...melting pumpkins are just gross!
