Hogwarts Crest Pumpkin by johwee Hogwarts Crest Pumpkin by johwee
A Sleeping Dragon is Never to be Tickled.

This is the pumpkin that sucked away all my carving time on Saturday and Sunday. That's right, I spent two days on this thing. I was marathoning the movies while I carved, and this one took up half of 3, and all of 4, 5, and 6. It's crazy man. Be sure to check out the full view for epicness.

So this is actually my 100th carved pumpkin in the 10 years I've been at this. I knew I wanted to go big, so I carved the full crest of Hogwarts, complete with both banners! This one was all me, and all about the shading. It took forever. This thing is so gigantic and detailed, the pictures don't do it justice. I'm really happy with how it turned out, but I regret how long it took. I could have easily carved the other 4 patterns I wanted in the time it took this beast. But it wouldn't be Halloween if I didn't show off just a little :D

I wish it were permanent so I could keep it as a lamp myself!

is this handcrafted or witchcrafted? o_o
no matter what, it's awesome xD

Haha, hand crafted xD But if I were at Hogwarts, I'd totally be stalking Hagrid to get a hold of one of those giant pumpkins, and perfecting the ultimate pumpkin carving spell!
