Great Geeky Pumpkin Template Contest 2011

our pumpkins

It's time once again for the Great Geeky Pumpkin Template Contest!

My, what cunning hat! I should like to eat it.

This is when you give us an excuse to go to the pumpkin patch to pet goats and fly down the potato sack slide screaming like 5 year olds--er, I mean, this is when we very generously give you the chance to win a $131 ThinkGeek gift certificate for the best geeky pumpkin template in the land!

Enter your pumpkin template below between now and Thursday, 10/27/2011. We'll print out a pile of our favorites for our own pumpkin carving party on Monday, 10/31. That night, we'll announce our $131 & Tauntaun Sleeping Bag grand prize winner and 2 $31 runner-ups--along with pics of pumpkin gore and our finished masterpieces--just in time to prepare for the trick or treaters!

(Who are we kidding. We don't have trick or treaters in our office complex, but we'll be in full cosplay with a bucket of candy and d20s to share. Much more fun.)

NEW DEVELOPMENT: We're partnering with a subreddit Halloween carving contest! We've pitched in some juicy gift certificates and we're hoping you'll enter your finished work of gourd art whether you use the templates below or not. Good luck!

Update, 10/28: Best of our 2011 entries!

Triclyops said this 1030 days ago.
meaningless icon! @Triclyops, Enter as many times as you want! There are actual monkeys looking through these, so if you have many brilliant ideas, please to be sharing!
Raevyn W. said this 1029 days ago.

gm1190 said this 1026 days ago.
meaningless icon! gm1190: We'll announce the winners here on the blog, as well as via Twitter (@thinkgeek) and Facebook (facebook.com/thinkgeek).
CarrieGouldin said this 1025 days ago.
meaningless icon! Is it possible to get a Timmy template? We have so many monkeys hanging around our house, a pumpkin Timmy would fit right in. :)
powerof3 said this 1023 days ago.
meaningless icon! Is this open to us Brits?

lisakay said this 1022 days ago.
meaningless icon! I submitted 3 of those templates but I didn't get ANY credit for mine! Grrr....
Grant Fam said this 1018 days ago.
meaningless icon! Awesome Designs! Where can I find the rest?
Kirrashi said this 1017 days ago.
meaningless icon! Grant, if you'll email replybot at thinkgeek.com the details of the templates you submitted, I'll take a look! Any mistakes were unintentional.
CarrieGouldin said this 1017 days ago.
meaningless icon! I don't see a submission form anymore. Is it too late to submit?
The Zen Assassin said this 1017 days ago.
meaningless icon! Zen Assassin, the form is still there, but if you're having browser trouble, you can go straight to the entry form here: http://www.formstack.com/forms/?1121121-GCEaQIGxs8
CarrieGouldin said this 1017 days ago.
meaningless icon! Am I the only one having trouble getting the StormTrooper template? I get a broken image when I click on it.
DrewHoo said this 1016 days ago.
meaningless icon! Why "why not zoidberg?" D:
Hurrdurr said this 1016 days ago.
meaningless icon! okay Nicole Tauntaun is cute!! SQUEE!
Triclyops said this 1014 days ago.
meaningless icon! shouldn't the templates be at least somewhere within the boundaries of possible to carve? the tardis i submitted is way more feasible than the one up there. boo! hiss!
sherriebomb said this 1010 days ago.
meaningless icon! can i get a red bird to match the piggy for my wife and i?
white416 said this 1010 days ago.
meaningless icon! Sherriebomb, We've gotten 10 TARDIS template submissions so far. The one by Melody M. above was one of the few that was technically possible to carve--that is, didn't have parts that were completely encircled by cut-outs. But if you'd like to email us at replybot at thinkgeek.com with the same email address you used on our submission form, we'll be happy to take another look.
CarrieGouldin said this 1009 days ago.
meaningless icon! I want to show a pic of my finished product that corresponds to my entry. Is there a good place to do that?
spiffyspork said this 1008 days ago.
meaningless icon! bummer, my Deathly Hallows isn't up there :(
