P.S. I pulled out my "pirate dandy" for the company costume contest, and
shallow-carved a bat onto a pumpkin for the pumpkin carving contest (my
own design-- shallow-carved areas for the mouth, ears, and wing
membranes, pierced holes for the eyes).
P.P.S. I took first place in both competitions. The pumpkin was a
surprise; there were some very cool entries that I though would leave me
in third or even fourth place. Someone did a Jack Skellington face that
was a perfect fit for its pumpkin, and there was a Medusa head carved in
what looked like tribal style. Another had carved the pumpkin half
away, leaving an open structure and no top. Really cool stuff.
