These are my Pumpkins. There were three but I punched one of them for shriveling up and killed it! (It was Rob Zombie's Living Dead Girl. Now it's face-less thing with dreadlocks.) Here are the survivors...

Jack Skelington-O'Lantern Smiley



(His teeth are messed up but I only had one carving tool that was dull as hell so I think it's pretty damn good!!!)

El Diablo



(His mouth is crooked and his horn cracked when I was carrying it but it came out the way I wanted it to, overall.)

My creations soaking in WD-40 for preservation.



What do you guys think???
There all from stencils I got from www.zombiepumpkins.com
Who says I'm too old for Halloween?Huh

soaking in WD-40?  so that the pumpkins last longer?  how does one soak the pumpkin in WD-40? 
The pumpkins i got this year dried out and shrivelled up pretty quickly... i thought it was due to their smaller nature...

I don't have much experience with pumpkins.

and yours are great, mostly i just carve faces into mine.

If you really spray the hell out of the pumpkins with WD-40, and keep them in a cool dark place (i.e. garage, closet...), it makes them last a a bit longer. I don't think it has much to do with size. If you don't have WD-40, you can coat the cut/exposed flesh of the pumpkins with vasoline. They dry up because they are normally very moist and oxygen gets into the pores of the flesh and sucks the moisture right out. Also, when you buy or harvest your pumpkins, you should always get ones that are not quite ripe or just ripe. The darker the color, the more mature the pumpkin and the longer it's been since the vine was cut. Hope this is helpful for the next time you carve up some pumpkins. Smiley
