    Description of your Jack-o-lantern (optional): who says jack-o-lanterns just have to be pumpkins, squashes deserve some credit too though not as soft as a typical pumpkin still think it turned out well. Also went for a different approach for pumpkin carving.

    Description of your Jack-o-lantern (optional): Although i only had scuffed knifes and a spoon and my pumpkin was thic(c)ker than a bowl of oatmeal, I think the black (orange?) mage turned out pretty decent. Haven't carved pumpkins in like 13 years and never did this thinner/thicker method, was a lot of fun though.

    Description of your Jack-o-lantern (optional): I really, really love Lucid and how during the intro of her boss fight, her eyes still glow after the fade. I decided to carve it based off of that!

    I hope im not too late!

    I wanted to do something simple with my pumpkin so I created it to be Romeo and Juliet!

    Romeo is on the left
    Juliet on the Right

    I now have a story to tell you!

    On Halloween night Juliet was locked in the dark castle on the hill of Spookytown. Romeo wanted to marry Juliet but the nasty old frakenstein locked Juliet up in the castle. He rescued her by climbing up the long hair of Juliet. He said to her oh Juliet I miss you so much lets go and live happily ever after together. They went down her hair and left a candy trail of two pumpkins falling in love.

    Hello, everyone! I'd like to announce our winners! These excellent Maple Jack-o-Lanterns shone much-needed light in this time of looming darkness!

    1st Place:
    Yukinakiss | YukinaKiss (Scania)
    The sheer detail in this Jack-o-Lantern combined with the beautiful interpretation of the theme is just fantastic! Using this scene where Phantom sees the ghost of Empress Aria was absolutely wonderful!

    2nd Place
    Kevex | Kevex (Reboot NA)
    This Jack-o-Lantern's shine makes it a real standout. Using two colors of light really makes this Jack-o-Lantern stand out, and the image of the Black Mage is truly spooky!

    3rd Place
    Squeak | Squeaki (Scania)
    By far the cutest entry in the contest! Pink Bean has a little pumpkin friend, and they seem to be enjoying their Halloween quite well! Using a squash as a fake pumpkin was an excellent solution to the issue of not having the standard gourd.

    Thank you so much to everyone who entered this contest, and congratulations to the winners!

    Winners will have their rewards delivered in a week.
