Happy Halloween 2011!!
He's here, the Phantom of the Opera!
Again this year, went ahead and carved the entire pumpkin. Carvings are scenes from The Phantom of the Opera, since this year is the 25th anniversary of the musical. Characters carved are the Phantom (a.k.a. Opera Ghost, Erik), Raoul, Christine, and various characters from the Masquerade. Pumpkin is about 8-12 inches in diameter (albeit rather oddly shaped). No patterns were used, looked at pictures from the show and drew outlines on the pumpkin with marker, then carved.
Added a spinning version of the pumpkin to my gallery and close-up views to my scrapbook.
