All the time I was working on Jack I was also carving pumpkins and getting costumes together. Since Halloween pretty much lasts all month here in Little Five Points, Martyn and I went through our selection from previous years so we would have multiple costumes to wear. You see, this past July we were spending all of our time and money on moving to this apartment so we couldn't start making new costumes as usual. By the time we were really moved in it was mid-late August and that left us with simply not enough time...we really like Halloween. Luckily we each had three costumes that had not yet been seen in Little Five.
Martyn was so excited to carve a pumpkin--he'd never made one all by himself.
Inside he found...GUTS!
This is me. I hadn't carved a pumpkin since I was like five.
I discovered it's hard work, but fun!
Our pumpkins outside as we got ready to see Where the Wild Things Are.
This is my pumpkin. It's Aladdin Sane.
This is Martyn's pumpkin, Bender.

We even custom designed the smoke chimneys in the lids, cause we're awesome.
