At work for Halloween we had a pumpkin decorating contest. I totally should have won! I think my pumpkin is awesome. But of course people were voting a bajillion days before the pumpkin deadline. C'mon people...who votes before you see all the candidates.
He has a peg leg and a parrot for gosh sakes! Oh, and gold hoop earrings. You can kind of see them on the side.
The parrot is actually two fake birds "frankensteined" together. I couldn't find a small sized parrot so I took large parrot and cut off his head (it was rather brutal), then I stuck it on a parakeet body and glued feathers around it to make it look like one solid bird. That actually took the most amount of time.
Pirate pumpkin is slowly decaying, it's very sad.
