Fully Operational Fandom: You Don’t Need a Lightsaber to Carve Pumpkins

Amy Ratcliffe | October 30, 2013


The calendar has turned towards fall and for many people that means costumes, candy, spooky decorations, and carved pumpkins. We’ve come a long way from giving pumpkins the traditional Jack-o-lantern style faces though. Those are fun, but it’s not uncommon to see a Stormtrooper or a Rebel Alliance pumpkin on someone’s front porch. You can find templates in stores (I’ve seen Star Wars: The Clone Wars pumpkin carving kits on shelves this year), download stencils, or come up with your own.

Star Wars fans are an incredibly resourceful bunch and several of them reached out to me to show off pumpkin designs based on characters and ships and everything in between. Yes, they are most impressive.
