The missus carved this one freehand.
It’s the Oogie Boogie Man (as if it wasn’t obvious).

Bunk’s 2015 Halloween Grumpkin

151031 Grumpkin 1

Took me about 30 minutes. Looks nice and menacing, ya?
Trouble is, there’s this thing called “scale” that kinda ruined it all.

151031 Grumpkin 2.
I’ve done better, but given that we only had about five groups of sugarboogers, the amount of time and effort was not squandered.

It also looks like our neighbors’ kikmi dog (that barks all night, until I nail it with a bucket of ice water and the yappy dog’s owner gets pissed at me). The dog’s owner looks just like her dog, too.

All Hallow’s Eve Grumpkins – A Retrospective

Monday, 31 October 2011


Our Grumpkins were known to make dogs bark and little kids cry. A red Sharpie marker, a serrated boning knife and Tom Waits’ “Bone Machine” / Mickey Hart’s “Planet Drum” blasting through the neighborhood made it all worthwhile.

The neighborhood kids are all grown up now…

Grumpkins (4)a

Dang. Lost my boning knife so I had to wing it with a serrated steak knife instead.  Grumpkin on the right lost an eye due to that unfortunate handicap, but Ms. Spaulding came out better than expected.

Two freestyle grumpkins in 75 minutes is a decent crank, though.
