Throwing Down the Halloween Gauntlet…

Last night, a few Tor.com staff members and assorted friends and family engaged in a (more-or-less) impromptu pumpkin carving session here at the office. The tantalizing results include:

• Irene’s Terrifying, Gourd–Faced, Soul–Eating Vampire Monstrosity…

• When Tentacles Attack (AKA: The Messinger Siblings Present The Mighty Orange Harbinger of the Elder Gods)…

• The Unholy Jack-O-Lantern From a Parallel Dimension (or, Irene and Greg break out our silk-screening paint…with fiendish results!)…

• The Tragic–seeming–but–possibly–also–very–Angry–ÜberPumpkin (The exact word we’re looking for here almost definitely exists in German)…

• The aptly-named Cranky McOrnery, rumored to be the most sarcastic squash this side of the Mississip’…

• And a whole mess of adorable kinder-gourds (aw…)

Usually when we combine knives and booze after-hours in the conference room, things turn out rather badly, but this time we actually managed to maintain our dignity AND some artistic sensibility—and quite frankly, we’re pretty damn pleased with ourselves. So now we throw down the geek gauntlet to you, our esteemed readers, to Join The Conversation for all things Hallow’d–related. Come see the complete collection of photos and join in with your own inspired tomfoolery as we gear up for the big day—and its ghoulish, messy, sodden aftermath…
