Eko and I have finalized our costumes, but there is one major Halloween task left to take care of – pumpkin carving. We picked out some great pumpkins last weekend, but I haven’t had any eureka moments about what to carve. All I know is that I want them to be pet pumpkins. Just to be clear, when I say “pet pumpkins,” I am not referring to this:
Pumpkins make very boring pets
I mean pet-THEMED pumpkins. My first thought was to carve Eko’s face in one of the pumpkins.
I had Eko pose for my masterpiece, but I quickly realized that artistically, I was in over my head. I decided to try a smaller canvas
For obvious reasons, this plan didn’t work either
While I wasn’t looking, Eko decided to attempt carving the pumpkin on his own. I appreciated the attempt, but his art was a little too abstract for my tastes.
I briefly considered a performance art piece with Eko as the middle head on a totem pole, but Eko quickly nixed that idea
My masterpiece is complete! …in my head at least.
Well, it looks like we’re back an square one. As I’ve noted before, I rank somewhere between a doorknob and a rock in terms of artistic talent, so I’m going to need to come up with an idea that’s a little bit better suited to my lack of talent. I have started to go through some other blogs for ideas, but if you have any suggestions for fun pet-themed pumpkin carvings, please let me know!
