The 4th Annual TXI Star Wars Pumpkin Carving Contest

THE 4th ANNUAL TXI STAR WARS PUMPKIN CARVING CONTEST Tantiv10

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

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 (posted in this thread) will be accepted from today through the 31st of October. The Winners will be announced on November 3rd.



There will be a 1st, 2nd & 3rd Place Winner, those Winners will get THEIR PICK of the following Prizes in Order of Ranking:

Prize A: TBA

Yep, that really looks like the face of the figure, especially once it’s lit up.

I’m still thinking about what to do. It’s hard to think of something semi original lol there have been so many Star Wars pumpkin carvings. rofl

Here's my annual novice-level entry. I couldn't decide what shot I liked better. I had to dress it up to make it look more advanced. rofl

I tried to pick a small pumpkin due to the subject, as usual, it's minimalist in terms of actual carving. Looking forward to seeing the rest! cheers  bowwing

Well done Chris. Nice thermal detonator.

I'm hoping to make Yoda's ears glow a bit more as well. I've already got a few ideas how to do it.
