TXI STAR WARS PUMPKIN CARVING CONTEST

The First Annual TXI Star Wars Pumpkin Carving Contest


It's that time of year again and to celebrate TXI will be having a Star Wars pumpkin carving contest  cheers


The winner will not be chosen until after the 31st so that everyone has plenty of time to participate if they want to .

Since pumpkins are not plentiful everywhere in the world , we will also accept entries made with watermelons , cantaloupes , honeydews or any other damn melon you can get your hands on - now even those of you who live in pumpkin deprived countries can participate  Razz

I would also like to recommend "Funkins" (or any other brand of fake pumpkin) to those who enter . The fake foam pumpkins are easy to carve and will last you a lifetime . I like them because I can use them year after year and it helps make the effort that goes into carving a pumpkin more worthwhile   Cool



The Rules :

#1) Your "Pumpkin" must be Star Wars related and have at least a small "TXI" carved , painted or drawn on it somewhere . Please be sure that the "TXI" is visible in at least one of the photos that you post   Wink

#2) Your entry can be carved , painted or decorated in whatever way you see fit . Be creative in whatever form you like - as long as it is a Pumpkin (or Melon) and its Star Wars related we don't care how you present it   What a Face

#3) You may enter as many different Pumpkins/Melons as you like   Very Happy

#4) Entries will be accepted from today through the 31st of October .



There will be 3 categories this year :

1) Traditional Style Carving

2) Sculpted Style Carving

3)Funniest Carving


A vintage Star Wars prize will be awarded to the winner of each category  yay



3 TXI team members will be the doing the judging - and those that do the judging will not be entering pumpkins in the contest  emperor  


All Right ... what are you waiting for ?  Get your knives out and start sharpening , make your blueprints and get to work  indy

I forgot to say that the Gamorrean Guard pumpkin at the top of this thread was carved by Commander Clint  cheers

It won best "sculpted pumpkin" at a contest I hosted at TIG a couple years ago Very Happy


Here is a example of what I consider a "Traditionally Carved" pumpkin ...

and a "Sculpted" pumpkin ...

[400][/400]

this one would fall into either the sculpted or funny categories ...

Thanks Christian. cheers   That one actually took 2 pumpkins to create.  I'm struggling to come up with something this year, that will be as good.
