Pumpkin Carving Contest!

Postby grumble » Thu Oct 12, 2017 3:24 am

Is anyone else planning on participating this year? I ordered new carving tools and broke out my linoleum carving tools from printmaking class! I love Halloween and get excited to carve pumpkins every year (sometimes I carve the pumpkin too early and by Halloween it's dead). I plan on doing one for this contest and I am going to attempt a portrait of Hagrid from Harry Potter! I would love to hear what others have planned for non-contest related pumpkins!

Don't forget the rules, the pumpkin must be themed in BD fashion. Hagrid would work, but have him holding a toy perhaps?

I went and got my pumpkin today because this sounded like fun. The front of it looks really nice and it wasn't until I got home did I notice my pumpkin had a very distinct indent on the backside that unmistakably looks like a butt.

Under the spoiler I made sure to include a picture. :laugh:

I might just give this a go and only because I'm going to assume that it will be the same as last year: Everyone who did something automatically gets 30 in store credit. It wasn't in the rules, they just...did it. I know, I know; it might not follow that same path this year but who knows? Besides, it'll give me an excuse to do something interesting. Oh, and since Halloween isn't really a "thing" down here, I might have to carve a Butternut. =P

You may want to try to find a pumpkin, it's the only thing that is allowed in the rules:
No other squash or gourds accepted, entries must be PUMPKINS ONLY!


But I understand, Halloween is not that popular here and I had to search for a looooooooong time before finding mine :bugeyed: !

I am going to give this a go, for similar reasons. I know I can't win because it is not as big as thing over here. So I don't have the skills Americans have. However with the art contests I was telling people to give it a go, because taking part is fun. I just didn't have as much spoons to do the pumpkin contest, because I do have huge problems with tiredness.

I was really gutted that I didn't enter though. So I am not going to let it slip by this time! I bought the pumpkin as soon as I found out about the contests, and I am just waiting to when I am thinking I am well enough to give it a go!

To be fair, they are called butternut *pumpkins* down here. Squash and pumpkin also come from the same family. Limiting it to US only pumpkins is pretty unfair to those in other countries. To find a typical Halloween pumpkin like you would find in the US; I'm not driving 2 - 4 hours to try and find one. Nope. Guess that leaves me out again. Oh well.

I really hope we can use different types of pumpkins! I have never, in all my years, seen an orange pumpkin with my own eyes. I don't think they grow in NZ.

You guys are making me want to enter :psyduck:

Tempted to ticket and ask because it really isn't fair to exclude countries that don't grow typical US Halloween pumpkins.

I saw a few last year, at a shop 3 hours away from me. They looked pretty "ew" to be honest. They aren't grown in Australia, either; what the hell do we want with them? Like things not grown here, they are imported. So...may as well say, "US only, unless you get lucky!"

Not sure why I suddenly give such a fuck, lol. I'd be a bit annoyed if they gave out store credit just for entering (again)
this year but only a specific type of pumpkin, one that some of us cannot get, is allowed.
