dextire Sep 21st, 2009 06:12 PM

Good job, Batman Johnson! I've never seen one of those things before. It looks like it could actually cut you. And I like the green puke pulp as well. Nice touch.

Aura Fox Sep 21st, 2009 07:23 PM

I think the key to a good Jack-o-lantern is for it to be visually appealing lit or not, so I give you the rather nervous looking Chayote-o-lantern!

He'll be torn up, er carved out inside if he doesnt win.

BatmanJohnson Sep 22nd, 2009 01:01 PM

Thanks Dex. I saw it and knew i had to carve it.

Alright, I saw the contest, I was eating grapes, and there was a knife on my desk. Grape o' lanterns ensued.

Initally, I put red LEDs into them, and the overall effect was pretty neat, especially considering that grapeskin is thin and veiny. Since I had half a dozen or so of these, though, I decided to go bigger. Behold the grape vine:

It looks exactly like normal Xmas lights at this distance, true, but each one is a unique little grape o' lantern. Of all the faces I made, most of them were pretty generic, but two were neat enough that I took pictures before I ate them. Unfortunately, I couldn't really get a decent close-up photo, so it's imagination time.

This one is my absolute favourite. It just turned out so well with the red LED that I wish I had a photo that could do it justice.

You can't see the face, but you're not missing much. I like this one just because nothing says halloween like a head on a pike. It also reminded me that in the miniature fruit community, sugary girl drinks probably look like Vlad the Impaler's courtyard.

Final note, If anyone can tell me how to set a camera to take a detailed close up of what is equivalent to a light bulb, I'd honestly appreciate it. I tried to get some photos with the red light, and this was my best result:

now those are neat!

Aura Fox Sep 23rd, 2009 06:37 PM

Oh wow I almost did that with grapes but I didnt have the lights for it, nice.

...Well I guess there's nothing in the rules saying you Can't let a dog play football carve a pumpkin.

stevetothepast Sep 24th, 2009 12:18 PM

if it's part of your regular groceries I guess haha.

those grapes are cool.

dymphnawolf Sep 24th, 2009 03:32 PM

Those grape o' lanterns are awesome

stonewar Sep 24th, 2009 06:43 PM

more green entry
It didn't come from my grocery sack. It came from my own garden
A Cantaloupe rotting on the vine.
Staked and writhing in pain for you Halloween pleasure.


dymphnawolf Sep 26th, 2009 01:19 PM

I'm not sure if this counts, but I figured it couldn't hurt to submit it anyway as I did technically carve the fondant.

Anyway, behold the face hugger cake!

blood_panther Sep 26th, 2009 02:56 PM

now that is amazing. good job!

dymphnawolf Sep 26th, 2009 04:32 PM

Thank you blood_panther :)

Cait Sidhe Sep 26th, 2009 07:12 PM

I'm concerned that if I tried to cut that cake, it would spray acid on me.

Cait Sidhe Sep 27th, 2009 10:46 PM

Got myself another lantern.

Pretty standard this time, following the age old formula of [Knife + Pumpkin + Candle = Jack-o-Lantern].

Though I fear I may have botched the procedure:

The fact that it actually illuminates the pumpkin inside itself blows my mind. I didn't think wax was that translucent.
I do realise that this is not technically food, so it's ineligible. That said, I did buy it at a grocery store, and the candle is made of delicious non-toxic wax.

Oh, and one other thing:


dextire Sep 28th, 2009 09:04 PM

Nice job guys! While I'm unsure about the eligibility of some of these, they are very cool looking and I'm glad you submitted them.

And the "delicious non-toxic wax" comment by Cait Sidhe truly made me laugh out loud. :)

Aura Fox Oct 3rd, 2009 02:10 PM

I noticed in the rules that Youtube is an option, thus I warped this in my mind and give you a short piece of morbid citrus cinema. An orange witnesses the death of his friend during a carving accident. I got the 'black and white w/ french' thing from an episode of The Critic.

blood_panther Oct 3rd, 2009 04:48 PM

nice one!
And thanks for reminding me youtube was a choice! I have this......amateur video of the Batnana in flight!

...yeah ok so It's a horrible video but it still makes me chuckle a little bit whenever i see it
