My favorite part of Halloween is pumpkin carving. This year I decided to carve a Gaara pumpkin.
It was much harder than I originally thought it would be. I'm used to just drawing the pic on and then carving, but Gaara was disagreeing with me. So, instead I traced a pic of him, made the necessary changes to it for carving ease, blew it up, put it up against the pumpkin face, and poked holes in it along the lines for a dot to dot effect. ...cept when I was done I couldn't remember which dots were which. So I actually wound up using a sharpie to clarify things...and even then parts of it got messed up. Still, he turned out so awesome! Heehee!
Gaara is from Naruto.
