Because this Throwback Thursday is also the day before Halloween, allow me to present — again — one of my all-time favorite pumpkin carvings: 2011’s Rick Ross Rap-O-Lantern.
As a jewelry designer, I had mad love for rapper Rick Ross’s diamond depictions of his own face, so I flipped out when I saw the pumpkin version of Rick and his chain. I liked Pumpkin Ross so much that I tracked down Seattle-based furniture-designer/bike-builder/music-remixer/DJ/pumpkin carver Kristjan Olsen and did a little story about him for the Huffington Post.
In 2012, my favorite pumpkin was gorgeous blogger Susan’s carving of FitzRoy the cat. If there’s anyone out there with carving skills who wants to make Purrkoy the kitten out of a white pumpkin, I would be most appreciative. I’ve already handled the costumes for the kittehs. FitzRoy is going as shrimp sushi …
… and Purrkoy is a little sailor.
Portia, the Ragdoll kitteh who has been visiting us, will be a scary vampire cat.
If they ring your doorbell, please fill their bags with lots of catnip and toy mousies!
