    Let's have a quick and easy little contest...

    I'd like to see the best rendition of the Jack-O-Lantern seen in the opening credits of the original 1978 Halloween.

    Made from a real pumpkin, this is something anybody on this board should be able to do...

    Maybe the winner can cast his or hers and make molds!

    I'll try to post a screen cap unless someone else can beat me to it.

    By the way - I post this for fun (and the realistic possibilty of ending up with a possible replica). There are no prizes here except for on-line ego strokes!

    Do you think Shatner ever covered his face in white paint and went as Michael Myers?

    I got to a Con a day early and ran into him, hung out with him at a hotel bar for like 5 hours because our rooms weren't ready. This was about seven years ago when I was in the Empire City Garrison of the 501st. I seriously wouldn't put it past him, he's a nut :lol

    wow, did he have some good stories...

    Bought some pumpkins yesterday that I think are roughly the same shape.

    Still need to post some screen-caps of the original...

    I have to say good luck to anyone who wants to go for this. Especially since finding the correct pumpkin is going to be a bit of a challenge on its own.

    learn something new everyday here - I did not know you could get a replica of this!

    Hoping to carve one of mine in the next couple of days...
