2022 Jack-O-Lanterns

2022 Jack-O-Lanterns

As many know, one of my favorite Halloween traditions is to carve pumpkins. Nothing better for a creative outlet than figuring out what jack-o-lanterns I am going to carve and then figure out the design. If you use the Halloween tag here, you'll see the pumpkins of yesteryear (as well as some Halloween comic reviews). 

A more recent sub-tradition is doing a Legionnaire pumpkin each year. Over the years I have put together quite a mission team: Sensor Girl, Wildfire, Monster Boy, Quislet, and now this year's addition ... White Witch.

This was a bit trickier than I thought it would be as the long eyelash antennae were a  bit delicate and required some fine carving. But overall, I think this came out pretty good! Welcome aboard Mysa!

But I am more pleased with the second jack-o-lantern.

This year my girlfriend asked for a 'Werewolf of London' carving, specifically meaning a sharply dressed wolfman akin to the one in Warren Zevon's Werewolves of London song. So picture a lycanthrope with perfect hair and a tailor you'd like to meet.

I am pretty pleased with this one as I kind of winged it. Turned out rather well I think.

Anyways, hope you all get more treats than tricks. 

Happy Halloween!
