Killer sweet Jack-o-Lanterns!

Hey, it’s time to check a look at all the really-awesome pumpkin carvings on teh intarwebs! I’d do some myself, but It’s such a mess, and I’m such a perfectionist, and also I have no oven to toast the seeds when I’m done, so I’m afraid pumpkin carving is right out this year. =/

But we can still gawk at others’!

Here’s some great ones, from Phrenopolis.com:

And Outside the Lines Art and Design has a lot of neat ones, including Beethoven, Lady Liberty, Chewie, and lots more, click the pictures to visit his pumpkin carving page…

Also, the website boasts a funny, tongue-in-cheek FAQ page about him, his work, and his beautiful, time-consuming pumpkin ‘cravings’.

.

If you are braver than I, and resolve to carve your own pumpkins this year, here’s some tools and tricks you can use to get the job done, with style!

First off, cleaning out the insides of your pumpkin is the ickiest part. Here’s a manly power-tool solution: The Pumpkin Gutter!

Decide how to do it and what tools to use, PumpkinCarving101.com is good for some of that…

Then, when you’ve carved it out properly, dress it up with a color-changing light-thingy, and annoy the crap out of your neighbors, with PumpkinLights.com

And when your pumpkin has served its noble purpose, give it a proper burial to avoid angering the Great Pumpkin.
