Phantom Pumpkin by A--Anthony Phantom Pumpkin by A--Anthony
Happy Halloween 2011!!

:pumpkin: He's here, the Phantom of the Opera! :pumpkin:

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.

Drawn freehand with marker on the pumpkin, carved using woodcarving tools. (2011)

This is amazing. I wish pumpkins didn't rot, because I'd keep something like that out all year!

Aww, thanks :pumpkin: I wish the same, but such is life. I find that the foam pumpkins don't give the same rich look, so I guess one must suffer transience for beauty ;) At least it gets a long life digitally :D

Besides, if the Phantom pumpkin didn't die it would be more along the lines of a Love Never Dies pumpkin. Personal, I'd want to avoid that. :D
