Halloween Pictures

Enough with boring Halloween decorations! I've decided that this is a good holiday to let part of my "shadow" side emerge, so I've begun arranging pumpkin tableaux that have a bit of an edge to them. It started in 2005 with the following scene that shows a pumpkin in one of Gina's old lab coats sawing into the head of one victim and drilling into the head of another, while a decaptated head spilling guts from its mouth rests on the ground:I skipped last year for personal reasons that you don't get to know about (say please).

This year I set up two scenes. The first involves two perpetrator pumpkins working over a victim by sawing its head and attaching battery cables to his chest:
The second scene shows a buried victim about to get his head run over by a lawn mower:

Thanks to my kids for carving excellent evil and horrified expressions, and to my neighbors. I notice not as many moms are walking their young impressionable tykes past my house these days.

Yes, I am indeed some kind of a shrink. Do you have anything you need shrunk?

I LOVE IT! So creative, artistic, and quite skillful. As long as everything in your life isnt equally macabre, I say your kids are lucky to have such a fun loving dad!

Oh my. We are 2 different Anonymouses.

My comment to yours: I think I am better at making things grow larger than I em at shrinking. I like to think about growign instead of getting smaller. But thanks for your offer.
