Ryuk Jack-O-Lantern by TheGreenestRose Ryuk Jack-O-Lantern by TheGreenestRose
Walmart's starting to sell pumpkins, and I couldn't resist. I love carving them, and last year I got a few compliments on my Jack-O-Lanterns from people trick-or-treating(Not little kids. :P) Ryuk came to mind, and I got really, really excited.

About 2 1/2 to 3 hours to do.

I know I messed up on his teeth and there are other flaws, but I don't really get "practice" during the year.

Reference Picture Here: [link]

I've also carved Alucard: [link] !

I always do mine like an hour b4 trick-or-treating starts so I need to get my act 2gether and start sooner

Yeah, I try to make sure I do mine a day or two ahead of time. If you do it too soon though, they'll rot before Halloween night. I think I carved Ryuk two or three days beforehand.

That definitely poses a problem. I suppose you could always keep them inside until Halloween night - though they also start smelling after a while. xD

There are several sprays out there to lengthen to "lifespan" of pumpkins, but they still eventually rot. It's a temporary art. :shrug:

And then there's always the fake pumpkin alternative, which is what I'm going with this year. :)

Ummm, that's really cool. I'd love to try doing something like this, but pumpkins smell so bad and feel so slimy and nasty that I can't stand them.

Very good work.

Very little, I think. The neighborhood's not exactly anime-friendly. I only know of one person aside from me that watches it around here. >_<
