Halloween 2013

Some simple uplights this year.  We made custom vinyl silhouettes on the windows and a trio of magical singing pumpkins.  Artistic credit goes to Vansters for Edward Scissorhands and Dave Lowe for the angry cat.  The other images I can’t find anyone to attribute.

It took an afternoon to convert the original .jpg files into crisp and clear vector art for scaling and cutting.

The vinyl cutter works with stock up to 30″ in width, which was very convenient.

At one point during the night, a girl age 7 or maybe 8 came up the walkway.  She saw the pumpkins singing ‘Ghostbusters’ and watched them in amazement.  Her expression reminded me of walking through Disneyland on a warm autumn day and seeing each of your childhood heroes lining the streets.

A few minutes later, as she picked some candy from our bowl, I remarked “These are magic pumpkins,  you know.”


“Yes.  Does your family have any pumpkins at home?”

“We do,” she smiled.

“Have you ever seen them sing like this?”

Deep wrinkles appeared on her forehead as she considered the question.  Finally, her shoulders drooped with sadness.  “No, our pumpkins can’t sing.”
