If you'd like to seem more pics of our pumpkin successes (we torched the failures, like usual), we've got a whole Flickr set for your perusal.

So, how was your Halloween? Pics or it didn't happen.

meaningless icon! Just wanted to say thanks to ThinkGeek for the great competition. I hope this does become an annual event, because there were some great ideas here.

meaningless icon! I carved the Cthulhu one! The six year olds that came up to my house recognized Mario but not Cthulhu. What's wrong with today's youth!?

meaningless icon! Hey Maddog -- I was the monkey who picked your U.S.S. Enterprise design to carve. I was a bit nervous about cutting the giant hole representing the planet, but it turned out better than I expected! I think I'd make that part translucent if I were to do it again, maybe with cut-out cloud texture. Did anyone else try a challenging design? I'd love to see some links to your carved pumpkin pics and hear about your designs!

meaningless icon! Totally awesome. Made a Mervyn the Pumpkinhead costume for a friend, and got people together to dress like the Endless: http://picasaweb.google.com/cookiestork/2009Halloween#5400214933639284850

meaningless icon! I can confirm both the existence and the awesomeness of the sleeping bag. Here is the expert review of my girlfriend. “Wow, this thing is snuggly.” So there you have it.⨪

meaningless icon! I have wondered for a while now, but what does 'Pwned' actually mean? =/
