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.

Rick Ross has lost a lot of weight lately, but I’m happy to see his jewelry hasn’t been put on a diet!
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!

I love the cats. They’re so cute!

Okay this is amazing. How did you get costumes on the cats? And now I want to put jewelry on Brutus and Caesar for an appropriately Roman Halloween pic.
With great difficulty!
