Well done Jonathan for winning first prize! A copy of the Movie boxed edition of the LotR will soon be on it's way to you, also a change to rules means Raptor now gets second prize, a copy of the Lord of the Rings PC game will also soon be with you.

Thanks folks, a very enjoyable competition and great Pumpkins!
Pumpkin Smilie Pumpkin Smilie Pumpkin Smilie Pumpkin Smilie Pumpkin Smilie Pumpkin Smilie Pumpkin Smilie I always wondered why we had that Pumpkin Smilie smilie.
Anyway, this sounds like fun. Now for all those people out there who do not know when Halloween is celebrated this year ( and for those who have been told but have a short memory Big Laugh Smilie ), it is Thursday, October 31.
Soon! You mean the end of the month is coming already? Where's my rent!!!!!!
That sounds wonderful
I can't wait to get my pumpkin and start sculpturing it! I might try and do a LotR themed one Orc Grinning Smilie In fact this year I promised myself an attempt to make pumpkin soup from it's innards once removed. It always seems such a waste to throw it all away Pumpkin Smilie
Pumpkin soup?!! Please tell me that's a joke. Oh dear god, please let it be a joke! Orc Going Huh Smilie
You don't make anything but roasted pumpkin seeds with the innards of a pumpkin; you use the pulp from the steamed or baked shell minus the skin, for cooking, and it is best to use a sugar pumpkin for cooking as they are sweeter, smaller, and redder than their larger orange cousins that are sold mainly for the making Jack O' Lanterns. Also never use a pumpkin for cooking, that previously has been used for a Jack O' Lantern, as it has already started to decay and you shouldn't take any chances with it. Pumpkin Smilie
I've never even tasted Pumpkin pie!!!! What's it like?? Cool Smilie
oooohhh.../me loves pupkin pie..

Have you ever tasted sweet potatoe pie? Pumpkin pie tastes exactly the same!

I never tasted pumpkin pie either, but pumpkin soup sure is delicious. Go ahead and try it Taz, it's well worth it. You usually end up with tons of soup, enough to feed your whole family for a year, but it's a very good soup. Big Laugh Smilie

Over here we don't usually celebrate Halloween (though a lot of people started to take over the American habit). So I don't think I'll join in the contest. Looking forward to seeing all of yours though.
I LOVE pumpkin pie. One of the best foods ever. Yummm...also...had this really really amazingly good ice cream over this summer - it was called 'indian pudding' but it tasted exactly like pumpkin pie. Tongue Smilie

No pumpkin carving for me this year, though... Sad Smilie

Are you all getting dressed up? I've been a mouse for like 5 years running...haha...figure I'll most likely keep the tradition going.
Yay! Pumpkin piccys! Such a cool idea! Maybe we should scan in pictures of ourselves in our halloween costumes aswell.
Hey, who's going trick-or-treating? Disturbed Smilie

I'll send it-it's mine,take you filthy claws off MY PRECIOUSSSS PRIZE!!!!!It's miiiineeeee!!!!

now,having overruned the paranoia crisis-great idea,Taz!Maybe I'll do a full-size sculpture of the argonnaths....(paranoia crisis hits again....)
Whoa! Raptor, calm down! Down boy *Hits Raptor over the head with a rolled up newspaper* Orc Grinning Smilie

I just love the way these things wink in unison. Big Laugh Smilie
Is Rednell the only one who sent in a picture?? Such a cool pumpkin deserves a bit of competition! Wink Smilie It makes me want to make a halloween apple! (in lack of a pumpkin) *hehe* Maybe I'll do, I'm allergic to them so maybe mutilating an apple gives me some revenge for them making my throat itchy. Maybe an orange will be easier, at leas I can eat what I scrape out.

[Redigert den 31/10/2002 av AmariŽ]
Rednell has currently provided the only competition entry yet hopefully I will get some more otherwise there is going to be a very UNHAPPY FRAGGLE walking around the boards.

What do you say, Taz? Halloween Orange could work, right? Big Smile Smilie
I'm sure we can allow that, heck why not any fruit as long as it is LotR themed Orc Smiling Smilie
When you look at Rednell's Uruk-hai in the smaller sized formats, you can't see much of the facial features, so click on the picture to blow it up to as large a picture that you can. Nice carving Nell. And that white hand is the crowning touch. I

Taz,you'll get mine on the 5th-thanks for ye delay!!!!
Really cool one, Red! Thumbs Up Smilie

Taz, where's your own pumpkin? Coming up? Pumpkin Smilie
OMG - my friend from Aus told me she never tried a pumpkin pie!!! I nearly fell off my chair. She said and I quote "We really aren't PIE people down here."

I didn't know Americans were "PIE people" per say - (okay, so there's the song and the movie, and even a company... but...)

I love pumpkin pies, tarts, empanadas, cheesecake (yes, pumpkin cheesecake!!!) all topped with REAL HOMEMADE WHIPPED CREAM.

By the way, I am making my chocolate truffles again this year - already have like 5 dozen preordered from people/friends - and I would be happy to share the recepie for them here in a chocolate party...
Hey swampfaye, where have you been. Missed you!

Make sure you scroll down and see the lighted versions...One small and then a bigger one further down.

Actually, that should say scroll UP. The link takes you to the bottom of the thread for some strange reason...

Eh-hem. I beg to differ! We are a nation of meat-pie worshipers. We are PIE people, we are just not pumpkin-pie people. Not that there is anything wrong with pumpkin pie, (I have never tried it myself, but sounds yummy - love pumpkin soup) it just hasn't caught on down here. Big Smile Smilie
Um... WOW? We have had a new entry and it is... impressive? To say the least Wink Smilie

Thanks Jonathan!
chocolate party? Pary Smilie we can have a chocolate party!?
Wow, that's one cool pumpkin.

I went as far as fetching my camera to take a picture of some mouldy thing someone had left by a roadside. When I got back though, someone had driven a lorry over it.
RATS!Another competitor!!!!.....I'll post mine tomorrow!oh please wait Taz,i don't thiunk i can beat those two but I wanna compete..... Sad Smilie
My halloween-orange(!) has been sent to Taz. No way it can beat any of these, but I had fun making it and that's what counts. Wink Smilie
i luv the orange nazgul! and i really luv Raptor's Gollum/Smeagol pumpkins! (thats prolly cuz i think Gollum/Smeagol is so misunderstood, he needs a lil attention)! the other were great! Big Smile Smilie
