    I carve foam pumpkins (called craft pumpkins that are sold at Michaels) and have been for years. I use a dremel and various bits to shade. Initially, I started carving real pumpkins, but grew tired of only being able to carve right before halloween, and then watch them rot and die within a few short days. This way I'm able to carve year round as well as make a carve once for my display, and short of selling it, its always a part of the display...I dont have to recarve it every year.

    I'll start off by posting one of a group of pumpkins I carved from 2008 unlit and with the lights on (I did this years ago when I was accused of photoshopping my carves). The next will be pumpkins lit with light on around them, and the third just with pumpkins lit.

    Those were done using various pumpkin patterns I found on the internet at numerous sites including http://www.carvingpumpkins.com/ and http://www.stoneykins.com/

    Here are a few carves I have done this year:

    These by no means are all the carves for this year (I've done 26 at last count), and I usually do not 'preview' or post carves till Halloween day but I thought I'd post a few. That being said, consider the last three as a 'preview'.

    If your interested in seeing some of my past work, feel free to go to my site and go to the gallery (http://www.thegourdsgonewild.com). A few of my personal favorites are in years 2011 and 2012, though there are many others I really enjoy having in my display too.

    Here is a link to a video I made showing my 2012 and 2013 carves for this year if anyone is interested.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFsp_x-iVS0

    Again...all carved by ME using a dremel and various bits used for shading and cutting.

    I'm old fashioned. I've never thought of using a dremel. Genius
