I decided to take my pumpkin carving skills to the next level by doing the shading technique. Usually, I cut all the way through the pumpkin, but this time I wanted to give more depth by peeling away a layer of the skin. I have to give much thanks to http://carvingpumpkins.com/ for the tips and awesome patterns.
I decided to go the classic Halloween route by carving the Universal Monster Couple - The Bride of Frankenstein and her Groom:
Some of The Bride's definition broke off during the carving process. However, I learned from my mistakes and I'm happy with the results of Frankenstein's Monster.
Anyways, I hope you enjoyed this year's patterns! This is one of my favorite Halloween activities (besides watching horror movies) and I've already started planning 2014's designs.
