The 5th 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 .


Here are a few entries from previous years contests :

Nice job entering a contest with your first post "Slave Girl". rofl Very cool Leia design. Reminds me of the "Itty Bittys" from Hallmark.

and Clint, I can absolutely tell that is the Kenner Rancor! Excellent work! I had thought about doing that one in the past but I didn't think it would be obvious enough that it was meant to be the toy!

Happy Halloween, guys! bowwing

Welcome to TXI Slave Girl and congrats on your Leia Pumpkin design. It reminds me of those metal emoji type characters that you could pick up at Star Wars celebration a few years back. I think they were called Totes scratch
