Trick or treat boys and girls! Halloween is right around the corner, but there is still time to carve some pumpkins. Over the years pumpkin carvings have made leaps and bounds depicting everything under the sun in very artistic ways. The pumpkin is actually a durable medium, and artists have found ways to take full advantage of it. Here are the coolest, nerdiest pumpkin carvings I found on the InterNERD.
Krang Pumpkin. The little brain bad guy Krang from TMNT looks amazing here! Created by Michael Villamejor, Krang is actually made of watermelon, and is sitting in a pumpkin dome.
Bill Gates Pumpkin. Steve Jobs usually gets all the love from computer fanboys, but here Bill Gates gets a tribute in pumpkin form. Created by Scott Heimendinger, check out his flickr for more sweet carvings.
Hellboy Pumpkin. The likeness of Ron Perlman is dead-on in this Hellboy pumpkin. Great work.
Predator Pumpkin. The detail on this Predator is amazing! This really is a work of art.
Tetris Pumpkin. The classic video game Tetris is still highly addictive. I like the NES controller thrown in.
Shining Pumpkin. Jack Nicholson’s performance in The Shining was groundbreaking. All work and no play makes Jack a jack o’lantern.
Joker Pumpkin. A pair of Jacks! Nicholson’s Joker in Tim Burton’s Batman was legendary. This pumpkin would look good dancing in the pale moon light.
Dalek Pumpkin. This is a more traditional pumpkin carving, hollowing out and cutting. Household items were then inserted to make this Dr. Who Dalek a deadly pumpkin!
Ron Swanson Pumpkin. Proving that not all pumpkins need to be horror themed. Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreations is represented! The hilarious Nick Offerman plays the character so deadpan it’s great.
Harry Pumpkin. Harry from Harry and the Hendersons is done here very creatively. The sasquatch never looked better!
Norman Bates Pumpkin. The mama’s boy from Psycho–Norman Bates is done here in this fantastically carved pumpkin! Just look at that shading that was achieved in the famous stare scene. Created by George Morrison, check out his flickr page for more amazing works!
