2016 Chiroptera Jack-o-Lantern by Taqresu650 2016 Chiroptera Jack-o-Lantern by Taqresu650
This is the first pumpkin I've ever made with the technique of carving the pumpkin just partially through. It's also the first pumpkin where I carved the lid as well. I made it a bat because my bat pumpkin from last year was smashed from neighbor kids, and I didn't even get to take a picture because I was away for the Harvest Carnival. This one is actually an improvement over last year's pumpkin and I was actually able to get the anatomy right. It was based on the image of a silver-haired bat (my favorite species). It took me three candle tests to make sure the light filters through, and I ended up thinning the layers to half of their original thickness. It was also the pumpkin that took the longest to carve of all my past pumpkins.
The other two pumpkins in the picture are my mom's and sister's. And just behind my pumpkin is a cameo from Child's Play.

Thank you for the compliment and the fave. :D It turned out a lot better than my last bat pumpkin (which some neighbor kid smashed).
