I heart Pirates AND ninjas. I can't help it. I think they are equally awesome in their own special ways. I had a ninja friend coming to town and didn't feel up to carving a whole pumpkin on top of dinner, air mattress repair, etc...so I came up with these babies.

The whole time I was doing it I kept thinking what an idiot I was for carving something so small...sure enough I carved a large chunk out of my thumb, but all has since healed and I got cute pumpkins out of the deal anyway.

For the pirate one I used a paring knife and a grape fruit spoon to hollow it out and used a combination of peeling and carving. I was actually able to get a good bit of detail that way. You can't see it, but the skull has cross bones that have been carved as well as "ARRR" on the back side.
The ninja is just peeled, not carved and ironically much harder to do.

You're totally NOT an idiot. I did the exact same thing today, carving a teeny tiny little punkin. I just made a regular jack-o-lantern face, but then he looked too cute so I stuck an exacto knife blade in his head and dribbled some red paint down his "wound." Thank goodness we avoided REAL bloodshed for once... Roll Eyes

I love the ninja by the way =]
