Pumpkinfest preparations

in halloween •  last month 

Hello

In a few days it'll be Halloween, and while we have never really celebrated it (we are Finnish), this time Vera wanted to bake a pumpkin pie.

So I bought us a pumpkin.

It was quite a job hacking out the innards of the pumpkin. I bet I left plenty of good stuff in there but I was a bit concerned that I might carve through the whole outer shell.

The seeds were separated for roasting later

Leo was very patient removing the seeds. We'll have nice roasted pumpkin seeds for snacking on later.

Miro & Leo designing a face for a jack'o'lantern

Miro was a bit upset afterwards as we chose Leo's design for our Jack'o'Lantern. Miro's designs were a bit too hard to carve with a straight knife. I would have needed more precise tools for cutting the eyes and mouth out if we had chosen one of his designs.

It came out quite well.

Yeah, I did almost manage to destroy the whole lantern. See the cut from his left eye to his nose. The knife I was using just slipped when I was cutting the eye, and it managed to go all the way through to the nose.

I wonder if we are going to do these next year as well. Anyhow, have a terrifying Halloween!

Oh, and btw. in this IPFS directory, you can see all the photos in full-size.

See you later!

Hi @gamer00
In my home we don't celebrate that. However, we really like pumpkin pie and much more seeds is an excellent snack especially when we watch a movie, of course many are needed but many seeds my daughters love

Estupendo me encanto ver a los pequeños haciendo su calabaza divertida.

Great I loved seeing the little ones making their pumpkin fun.

@gamer00

This is just the kind of photography post I have been wishing you'd post for who knows how long. Please keep at it.

Happy Halloween!

Telling stories through photography is not the easiest form of art, but I guess I did kind of have a bit of a flair at that.

Yes, have a great one! :)

Happy Halloween!

Hahaha! Very nice lantern! Do this again next year, but make two lanterns!

Great!
