Halloween easily gives Christmas a run for its money when it comes to most looked forward to holiday in the year – at least in the United States. With this exciting holiday just around the corner, it is but to be expected that Halloween costumes and jack-o’-lanterns will flood the Internet.
And yes, it has begun.
Our friends from Geeks Are Sexy hit us up to share an awesome post they put up yesterday: The Most Amazing Geek-o’-Lanterns You’ll See All Week. To be honest, after looking at the images, I would have ended that title with “all month” or even “all year”.
At this point, you can either jump ahead to gawk at the geeked out jack-o’-lanterns or heighten your anticipation by learning a little bit about how they were made…
Apparently, there is this event called Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular in Providence, Rhode Island. It is an annual thing, with a different theme each year. This year, it is all about movies, TV series, Broadway hits, and comics. Right up your alley, yes?
So here are my top picks from GAS’s exclusive photo set of the geeked out jack-o’-lanterns.
I have no clue as to how the artists managed to get all that detail in a fruit.1 But in case you are up to the challenge of creating something akin to these geeked out jack-o’-lanterns, you have enough inspiration to draw upon. We also have some pretty cool jack-o’-lanterns from last year, if you need more.
