The Second Annual TXI Star Wars Pumpkin Carving Contest


It's that time of year again and to celebrate TXI will be having another 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


Here are the entries from last years contest :

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

Damn there was some fine work last year. That wampa really takes it IMO, perhaps not a difficult carving but unmistakable as the Kenner snow monster who happens to share some facial geometry with the average carved pumpkin lol

Well I didn't try this last year as far as I remember. So I will give it a shot and if I can find a Funkin even better I hate the smell of pumpkins.

One question I am guessing that the pumpkin has to stay in the shape of a pumpkin. What I mean is you can't have your pumpkin look like a stormtrooper blaster.

Larry, Use the force.

It can be what ever shape you can carve.  There are several catagories for carving.  Just be creative. cheers

I've already got a couple of ideas.  Now, to make them work. What a Face

Buy a small trial one. There are lots of them around, this time of year. That way you can change the way you carve it, if something doesn't work.
