Jack O'Lanterns of AWESOME

I had a whole other post done up...but then I saw this:


And what with Halloween being yesterday, I figured I couldn't possibly miss up an opportunity to share the  nerdiest coolest pumpkins I could find!

For those of you not in the know, the pumpkin above is a Dalek from the awesomest BBC show ever, Doctor Who.

There are quite a few nerdy pumpkins out there. The majority seem to be from Star Wars:


From this site, which has tons more awesome Star Wars themed pumpkins.


Apparently, this is the result of an awesome family pumpkin carving night.


Despite the fact that Star Wars has such a hold on the nerdy pumpkin market, there are others:

From Preditor. Also, this guy makes AMAZING carvings.

From my husband's favorite game: Space Invaders.

Cylon, anyone?

How about some classic book nerd love?

Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy! This site, by the way, did a Literary Pumpkin Showdown.

And I'm going to save the best for last...zero points to you if you can't figure out what classic movie it's from...

Very cool pumpkins! I admire the genius behind them, mostly because I'm all thumbs when it comes to cutting pumpkins for anything more than pies. Thanks for sharing.

So cool. Amazing projects. I used to love space invaders. My brother was incredibly good at it, and it was really fun to watch him play.

Love that predator one - that was awesomely creepy.

Why can't video games be simple any more? I miss space invaders.

Happy Halloween Beth.

Hahaha! Other than Predator, which is obviously in a class of its own, Death Star and Dalek are probably my favorites. The inner geek in me loves the Alien one, though. LOL! Wow. This just made my night on so many levels. Thanks for sharing! =)
