40 Pumpkins For Gamers And Nerds

Get out your apple cider and favorite knife… it’s time to carve some awesome pumpkins!

Picking the perfect pumpkin is a personal preference.  It all depends on your design.  But I’m not much of a planner when it comes to creativity.  I say, let the ghosts and goblins guide you.  Enter the pumpkin patch, close your eyes, spin around three times and … GO!  Whatever you trip on first is the pumpkin you must slay.

Now that you’ve found your victim, it’s time to make a masterpiece … or a mess.  Whichever you prefer.  There are some great templates if you want to learn how at Pink Raygun or Fantasy Pumpkins, or you can do a simple Google search if you’re looking for something more specific.  Last year my boyfriend and I opted for Thundercats and Pac-Man (one of us used a template… one of us did not):

Have fun and send me some links if you too craved to carve your very own gamer or geeky pumpkin!
