Design geeky pumpkin template, win Tauntaun Sleeping Bag

pumpkin_help.jpg

It's that time of year again. The days are getting shorter and it's so chilly at night Timmy has to cuddle up with the server for warmth. But at least we have the 31st to look forward to.

Needless to say, we do Halloween up right: ridiculously detailed costumes, lots of candy-nomming, and this year we're going to try our hand at slaughtering pumpkins. But what to carve?

Which is why we're presenting our First Perhaps Annual but Let us Settle for 2009 Geeky Pumpkin Template Design Contest Extravaganza. Here's the deal:

UPDATERY: The winnars have been announced over here with carved examples! There's also a superlative list of other templates we hearted. Thanks to all who entered, and we'll see if we can talk the pumpkins into doing this again in 2010!


  1. You design* a geeky pumpkin template (PDF, Flickr upload, JPEG on your blog, scan embedded in Google doc, whatever) designed to be printed out onto 8.5x11" piece of paper. We only want your template, not something you bought from a site. Or stole from a child. That's rude.
  2. Describe your template and link to it in the comments attached to this blog post by October 29, 2009 at 12 midnight EDT. You can submit more than one template, but don't go crazy.
  3. Meanwhile, we'll carve our pumpkins and Timmy will judge your templates. (Warning: He will not be accepting bribes this time.)
  4. Contest winners will be announced during our October 30th Halloween Live Stream Monster Bash and Costume Contest (time TBD). Hurrah!

* Non-artists, please don't fret: we won't be awarding prizes based on your command of vector illustration tools. Do be clever, though!

** There's always fine print. Here is ours.

Prizes will include fame as well as:


Some really clever templates so far:

I created this Evil Dead pumpkin pattern in 2007 to introduce 10 year olds to the magic of Sam Raimi: http://mysite.verizon.net/kastanfamily/2007/evildeadpumpkinpattern.jpg Cut: Black Shade: Grey The final pumpkin was better than a walk in the woods: http://mysite.verizon.net/kastanfamily/2007/ED-LIGHTOUT.JPG

Myya said this 1901 days ago.
meaningless icon! Timmy has instructed me to report that YES, Brits are welcome to enter, and YES, you may enter more than one design. But he notes that if you enter, like, a gazillion he will get cranky at which point he cannot promise to be a fair judge.
CarrieGouldin said this 1901 days ago.
meaningless icon! Timmy has further instructed me to post PuckByter's submissions so everyone can see his excellent templates without giving away designs from a site that makes you pay. 'Cause Timmy's not in the mood for being yelled at today. (Maybe tomorrow?) PUCKBYTER DOTH TYPED: Here are my submissions, both are really quite simple: 1) Using the infamous Tengwar Cursive font, create your "One Pumpkin to Rule Them All" by stringing together a bunch of text that wrap all the way around the pumpkin. The candle glow gives it a great effect: http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/806141/patterns/Tengwar.pdf http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/806141/patterns/2004_cut.jpg 2) Emoticons & Command Lines - simple, easy to create your own and customize: http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/806141/patterns/Winky.pdf http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/806141/patterns/C_Prompt.pdf

meaningless icon! My bad - never want to cause any unnecessary yelling. I don't mind sharing what I have outside of this contest if that is cool. I don't have any vested interest in any site, just like to carve and share good patterns...
PuckByter said this 1901 days ago.
meaningless icon! PuckByter, s'cool. The Ring idea for a pumpkin is brilliant and wanted to be sure we could share! (Also, we need threaded comments. Hmmmm.)
CarrieGouldin said this 1901 days ago.
meaningless icon! Thanks for the kudos. FYI, it takes about 4-5 tea candles to really get the proper "forged in the fires of Mordor" effect. (And another vote for threaded comments)

The first one is kind of a collage of sorts, with lots of text. http://www.flickr.com/photos/43342382@N06/3990819943/ and the second is an 8-bit pumpkin (well i tried to make one) :-) its near the top of the first one haha i just copied/pasted it in http://www.flickr.com/photos/43342382@N06/3991575742/

meaningless icon! I feel like a bit of a ringer here as I created the Deathstar image you have above which you can see at my website, (http://www.fantasypumpkins.com). That said, for entry restricted to a regular page I'll go with my pattern for Anne Stoke's Aracnoid painting. Here is the mockup - http://www.fantasypumpkins.com/2007-patterns/anne-stokes-arachnoid-woman-mockup.gif Here is the inverse pattern: http://www.fantasypumpkins.com/2007-patterns/anne-stokes-arachnoid-woman-inverse.gif Here is my carving of it: http://www.fantasypumpkins.com/2007-pumpkins/arachnoid7055.jpg http://www.fantasypumpkins.com/2007-pumpkins/arachnoid-day.jpg BTW, I did this with Anne's approval - she was blown away by the carving.

meaningless icon! Here's a simple Oregon Trail inspired one. Cut out black areas, surface carve (whittle the skin off of) light orange areas, and leave skin on the dark orange ones. Some of the lettering at the bottom may require toothpicks or careful carving for support, especially for the "floating" bits inside some letters. http://www.pwn3d.us/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/TG_pumpkin.gif

I've never seen a pumpkin before in my life.

meaningless icon! This "Eye of Sauron" pumpkin is especially effective when displayed from a very high window. It is also beginner-friendly: differences in thickness of the shaded areas add to the fiery effect, as does the flickering of the candle inside. http://i229.photobucket.com/albums/ee248/milowmas/Geek-o-lantern.jpg

First off, nothing says "Happy Hallowe'en!" like a companion cube on fire. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v44/Halfling_Elf/cc_burn.png And secondly: cut a numerous amount of holes of various sizes and shapes into pumpkin. Place pile of normal, dull rocks next to pumpkin (or, if you're feeling adventurous, fill a paper bag with them!). Place outside of home. You're done! (and don't forget to have a pumpkin guts fight afterwards to celebrate!)

This first one was a rather obvious choice, but I had some fun putting it together. It is cutouts only: http://www.lindseyroe.com/public/BestRideEvar.jpg This second one is more personal.

meaningless icon! Here are three patterns - I've carved the first two. The University of Montana mascot (http://www.sjohns35.com/FinalGriz.pdf ), River from Serenity (http://www.sjohns35.com/FinalRiver.pdf ), and the mad scientist from Robot Chicken (http://www.sjohns35.com/FinalRobotChicken.pdf ). Hopefully these links work on the first try!

meaningless icon! My very first art pumpkin HAD to be Star Wars. I chose the logo from Celebration 4 and used a pattern-making software to scan it into a pattern - I carved only what was in the triangle part of the design. Check out the pattern, base picture and photos of the finished pumpkin at: http://picasaweb.google.com/meritdowling/SWPumpkinPattern2007#

meaningless icon! Ok, here goes nothing: http://www.flickr.com/photos/12253322@N04/4054353733 It's Timmy-Borg. :-D Black areas are carved out (lines might need to be a little thicker. Gray areas are shaded. White areas are uncarved. Hopefully appropriate since I got sucked into the wonders of "Think Geek". ;-)

meaningless icon! I used the Bender template to make this pumpkin: http://twitpic.com/ngi8f. The only issue was the template called for some intricate cuts that would have made for an unstable carving... so I made a couple changes.

meaningless icon! WALL-E vs Strong Bad http://www.flickr.com/photos/hrdoran/4057190712/ no time to properly block out the image as I spent way too much time carving the others =) http://www.flickr.com/photos/hrdoran/4057315384/ and, of course, I deviated from the original and tried to put Strong Bad in a trash-compacted cube rather than bits - does not look even half as good as it could have - tragic =)

meaningless icon! I also came up with this idea, then found a template online for it. Unfortunately this means someone else has done it, but I could not find a picture of a pumpkin carving of it. So I made my own. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2101394776648&set=a.2101386176433.2100234.1298798870&type=3&theater
