The Super Otaku Busters (me, KimmiKawaii, and Mozart) decided to put in a little extra effort for this occasion and carve some anime themed pumpkins in honor of starting our anime blogs earlier this year. Well… KimmieKawaii and I did. Mozart simply slept after once again failing to raise the funds for this project.
This is the first year that we’ve done anime themed pumpkins and the first time I tried something other than simple cutouts, so please be gentle with criticism. I’m also very bad at taking pictures as you might see, though the roundness of the pumpkins doesn’t help when trying to get a good angle.
KimmieKawaii did Sailor Moon. It’s hard to see in this light, but she added a lining of glitter around the moon for a bit of added shimmer.
I tried my hand at Kaneki from Tokyo Ghoul, based on a picture of one someone else did.
These detailed designs took us forever because we’re complete amateurs, but they were fun to do nonetheless. The compliments we received from our trick-or-treaters made the time spent well worth the effort.
Did any of your carve pumpkins for Halloween? Have you ever tried to master a difficult design? What do you think would make for an interesting carving in the future?
