2012 Jack O' Lanterns

One of my favorite parts of Halloween is carving jack o'lanterns.

Now I have done years with themes and years without themes and I thought this was a themeless year.

But taking a step back, I guess I have to say this was a Faustian year for my pumpkins.

First off, after years of carving, I finally decided to try to do a Supergirl jack o'lantern. And the Super Best Friends Forever Supergirl seemed a perfect choice. I am pretty happy the way this turned out. I knew it would be challenging to pull off and it was. It looks better in person than this picture shows; you can barely see the cape in this pic. Of course, this Supergirl is the brain child of Lauren Faust.

Last year I did Rainbow Dash from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. The MLP fever remains strong in my house and so I thought I would do another pony as a jack o'lantern. So this is Pinkie Pie. Again, I think this one came out okay. And, much like Supergirl, this version of Pinkie Pie is the creation of Lauren Faust.

This year, the oldest Supergirl at home and I teamed up to carve a Princess Luna jack o'lantern. Looks like she is a chip of the old block, even if I did the exacto-knife work. And of course, Princess Luna is part of the Lauren Faust MLP empire.

Thus three Faustian jack o'lanterns were in front of my house last night.

A last minute addition to the jack o'lanterns was this Mockingjay symbol from the Hunger Games. The oldest supergirl at home loved this series so I thought I would give it a whirl.

Of all the pumpkins I carved this year, I think this one is my favorite.

I also had the time to carve one for a family member who is a huge Bruins fan. I like this one a lot too.

Hope everyone had a happy Halloween!
