Happy Halloween

Sorry no comic this week as we were preparing for Halloween festivities. First up, pumpkin carving!

As many of you know, I’m a Star Wars fan, and with the release of the full trailer and movie tickets for opening weekend, I had to design something that included two of my favorite characters (Darth Vader and Boba Fett). Yeah, the bad guys… 🙂 Of course Jenn wanted a cute design. She decided on Hello Kitty and Dear Daniel.

I drew these designs with the intention of not having any breaks. The usual jack o lantern cuts all the way through to the hollow center, but these are cut halfway through so the lines stay connected.

I also felt I needed to participate in the Halloween festivities at work by making a costume the night before. Unfortunately, since we don’t normally dress up for Halloween, we don’t own any costumes, so I couldn’t just throw on something simple and feel satisfied. (Why don’t I own just a simple mask or masquerade mask?!) So 10pm the night before and I’m trying to figure out what can I make? I was looking for something fun or weird silly and for some reason this “Nyan Cat” just came to the forefront. I took about 3 hours to cut, paint and rig the head gear. I was pretty satisfied and giggling in the mirror at 1am.

Here is the result of my efforts:

What did you guys dress up as? If you felt compelled to make your own costumes what would you make? What carvings have you guys done or want to do if you had the time to make a fancy one?

Hope you have a safe Halloween and enjoy your post Halloween candy sales!
