Good Lord: Intricately Carved Superhero/Sci-Fi Pumpkins

October 12, 2012


This is a series of unbelievably impressive carved pumpkins on display as part of the Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular at the Rodger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, Rhode Island. The Spectacular features over 5,000 carved pumpkins, but apparently only 100 or so are this impressive. Who knows, the rest might suck.

Join your family and friends in this amazing experience: a night time display of 5,000 illuminated jack-o-lanterns all along our beautiful wetland trail. Well over 100 of the pumpkins are carved into veritable works of art, and presented in themed scenes with music.

Wow, that made me sad as hell. "What, that only 100 pumpkins out of the 5,000 are really cool?" No, the whole 'Join your family and friends' thing. "You don't have any?" ALIENATED THEM ALL. The holidays are really hard for me.

Hit the jump for a bunch more of the impressiveness, including some Dr. Who, Cthulhu, Wolverine and Lord of the Rings action.










Thanks to PYY, who isn't allowed to carve pumpkins with anything but her fingernails because she lost her knife privileges.

    Everyone complained about the giant hamburger from a few weeks ago as been a waste of food when there are so many starving people around, but no one complains about this waste of food. The reason of course is that no one eats pumpkins!

  • So where is the Doctor Who one?

    I commend you for the michele pfifer catwoman design but if you were just gonna butcher it why not do the halle berry one instead that already sucked.

    I go to this every year. The pictures that are posted are not really carved but more embossed if you would, by carving a slight amount off the surface to form the design and then painting them. The remaining pumpkins are actually carved in the traditional style and are equally impressive.
