Here is what my pumpkin looked like, I rather like the expression I created:
And here is Alex's, aren't those teeth great?
He was a rather horrible looking zombie this year, I had fun doing his makeup. He said he got teased a bit at school for having a "wardrobe malfunction" ie; part of his chest was showing through the rips.
We watched part of the original Night of the Living Dead last night. I forgot how creepy that movie is, and didn't watch the end of it so that I could get some sleep.
Marc carved his pumpkin in record time because he was really tired after work., I don't know how he gets those smooth shapes, but he did have a softer pumpkin than anyone else. I think that makes a big difference in what kind of design you can accomplish in pumpkin carving. Zach's was one of those really reddish lump skinned ones, he said it reminded him of a strawberry, and it was a strange shape. Since it was most stable "upside down", he decided the face should be cared upside down. I think it looks pretty cool.
For dessert we had the Queen of Halloween's Graveyard concoction. It was a big hit. The addition of the zombie chocolate covered gummi bears made it "our own". I think it'll be coming back for another engagement next year, thanks Laume! How do you like my new place mat? It has sparkles in it, so I'm happy It did kinda creep me out to write out the names with R.I.P., but I got over it once I ate some of the extra double chocolate milano cookies.
