My First Time Pumpkin Carving

Skyrim Pumpkin

Skyrim Pumpkin

I'm not a massive "holiday" fan, but if  I ever have to choose a favourite, I always go for Halloween. I actually don't have a reason behind it, it's just always been my answer! I do love a good fancy dress party and it's the only way I actually celebrate Halloween, so I guess that's why. This year, I've bought an outfit - Anna from Frozen, duh - but I don't actually have any plans to go out. So the most Halloween-esque thing I've been up to is pumpkin carving!

I've never carved a pumpkin before, but today myself and Scott decided to give it a go. I chose a little round pumpkin and Scott went for a much bigger one, which I soon learned was the better tactic! I did the honours of cutting open the the tops and scooping out the insides, before we settled down to draw on our designs and give the pumpkin carving game a go.

Scott chose a traditional spooky pumpkin face, but I decided to dive straight into the deep end and attempt the Skyrim dragon emblem. I googled the emblem and drew it as neatly as I could on the pumpkin. In hindsight I drew it too narrow, making a lot of the design very flimsy and hard to cut around.

The actual carving was surprisingly easy and I think I did ok for my first attempt! What do you guys think? Have you carved a pumpkin this year?
