In the name of the Moon, my Pumpkin will punish you Wink





All my supplies. I made the temple in InDesign by taking a Sailor Moon Pic from the interwebz and drawing an oval around it, then gray scaling the whole image out.


My template taped to the pumpkin, I used the punch method (with a pick had from an old carving kit, but an ice pick would work too)


After about an hour of punching out the template and another hour of carving this was my finished product. The pigtails were the hardest part.

Here's a link to the template if you want to make your own Smiley

Your hard work shines through. I saw this on the homepage and couldn't mistake that silhouette for anyone else. I just finished the Super Awesome Sailor Moon swap (you Moonies out there should check out the gallery Wink), so this just made my day.

Awesome, I immediately started thinking of any characters I could carve. Props for the pigtails! Many of my pumpkin carvings have been reattached with toothpicks, I'm quite jealous!

I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.

I started laughing out loud, so of course my boyfriend and his brother both said "what?" I read your tagline and they both started laughing as soon as they saw the pic Cheesy Super epic, and I, too, recognized the silhouette immediately!
