Last year I carved a Hunger Games themed pumpkin for Halloween. You can read my post about that little endeavor here. I wasn't originally planning on carving a Hunger Games pumpkin this year (mostly because there aren't many things you can carve other than the mockingjay symbol and I already did that last year...) but then I saw that Mockingjay.net was having a pumpkin carving contest and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to possibly win one of the comic con mockingjay pins. :P
It took me awhile to come up with a design but I finally decided to carve each of the mockingjays from the book covers along with the words The Hunger Games Trilogy. Here's the finished product:
It took FOREVER to make. Around 6-8 hours. :P
This can be attributed to the fact that I used the technique of carving out only a partial layer of skin that way I could do the trickier stuff like the thin lines on the catching fire mockingjay. I think it turned out pretty bomb diggity! What do you guys think?
Hope you all have a fantastic candy-filled Halloween!!!
