Amazing Pumpkin Carvings


We’re just a few short weeks from Halloween, and if you haven’t already, you’re probably at least thinking of carving a pumpkin.  While I haven’t done mine yet, I will admit that I wish that I could do one as intricate and amazing as some of the ones I’ve found to share.  The attention to detail and artistic ability is truly awesome.


I’m assuming Atlas, though I don’t think him shrugging here would bode well for the pumpkin on his shoulders.

Bowser and Mario

A battle more than 20 years old.  Can’t they just hug and make up?


There’s no denying that this awesome pumpkin carving is Chewbacca.  Now that’s a Star Wars fan.


I’ve never really watched Battlestar Gallactica, but I do know a Cylon when I see it, and inserting the red LED lights into this carved pumpkin was the perfect touch to really drive home the look.

Death Star

This is a staggering attention to detail.  I think the only thing missing is the critical design flaw that let a moisture farmer from Tatooine destroy it with a single shot.

Hanging Tree

A bit more traditional Halloween, but still impressive work doing the branches on the tree.

Headless Horseman

Not much is more Halloween than the Headless Horseman.  This is one of the more amazing pumpkin carvings I’ve seen.

Marilyn Monroe

She may have been born Norma Jean Mortenson, but we’ll always know her as Marilyn Monroe.


Its-a me…Mario!

Raccoon Mario

It’s not the first Mario, but I think we can all agree that Mario 3 was groundbreaking with the costumes, most notably the Raccoon Mario shown here.

Optimus Prime

I think I’m almost as impressed with the size of pumpkin you’d need to do a good job on Optimus Prime as with the actual pumpkin carving itself.

Partied Too Hard

Ok, so the carving itself isn’t that complex, but the display is funny to be sure.


That goes beyond just being an amazing pumpkin carving.  This Predator pumpkin deserves to be in a gallery.

Pumpkin Prison

You just have to lock up bad pumpkins

Pumpkin House

Not overly elaborate, but the attention to detail is what makes this one impressive.

Pumpkin Monster

What the hell?

R2D2 Pumpkin

Gotta love R2-D2.  Like the addition of the light.

Space Invader

Space Invaders will always hold a special place in my heart.

Stephen Colbert

Stephen Colbert – making pumpkins more patriotic.

The Emperor

The detail on the Emperor’s disfigured face is pretty awesome.

The Shining

There’s no denying that’s Jack from The Shining.


That’s a toothy smile right there.  Never trust a pumpkin with a toothy smile.

Where the Wild Things Are

So the movie was a bit of a let down, but the there’s no denying that Where the Wild Things Are is still a children’s classic.


The lines around the mouth for the wink are spot on.  Wonder if the artist had somebody modeling for them.


You have to have Yoda.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

The Nightmare Before Christmas has always been a favorite of mine.  Jack Skelington is a great character, and this still from the film is simply amazing when you think of the hours to get all the detail on a pumpkin.
