The pumpkin patch held many secrets this year--secrets such as LOLWUT!?
Halloween is almost here!
We're saving our celebration until Monday, but we know many of you will be parading around in costumes and putting the finishing touches on pumpkins this weekend. To help you with the latter, below are our top 2011 template entries--all 60 of them! The bonus 18 templates from past years come free.
We'll announce our winners soon, and whether you carve from these templates or not, we hope you'll tweet photos of your carved masterpieces to @thinkgeek or post them to our Facebook wall! That goes double for your geeky costumes. We'd love to see your work and we'll share our favorites with our followers. Sharing is scaring!
Oh, and we've partnered 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!
We've chosen our winners!
Our masterpieces carved from your templates. Thanks, guys!
After much deliberation--and carving--we've selected our three winners for our 2011 template contest! The first place winner receives a $131 gift certificate and a Tauntaun Sleeping Bag, and two runners up each win a $31 gift certificate. Thanks to our more than 500 entrants for sharing their creativity with us this year--and those of you who showed us your finished pumpkins and costumes on Twitter and Facebook!

Thanks to everyone who entered; there were many, many more templates entered than you see here, and we wish we had time to post them all.

ThinkGeek goes to the pumpkin patch!
An away team left TG HQ to obtain pumpkins for slaughter on Monday. This is their story.
