Halloween 1993 - Present, including costumes and Jack O' Lanterns created by me.
Sadly, I haven't had time to do
anything creative to celebrate my favorite holiday. However, my
dad decided to dress up as Santa this year, something he used to do
often on Halloween, but hasn't done for quite a few years. I
figured I better capture a few pictures of the occasion.
Unfortunately, the settings were a bit off, and I didn't get as good of
pictures as I had hoped.
Halloween 2006This year, I didn't have the time to create a new Jack O' Lantern, but I did make this animation of last year's.
Halloween 2005I made another Frank Zappa pumpkin this year. I even brought it to "Zappaween", an Ugly Radio Rebellion show at Club Bart's in Ferndale, MI on October 30, 2005. I decided to try the new style of carving again, this time adding even more of a three-dimensional quality by carving deeper. This one wouldn't keep a candle lit for more than a few minutes because there wasn't enough air circulation---it required a battery-powered light for a continuous display. It is amazing how many different appearances the same jack-o-lantern can have by photographing it under different conditions.
Halloween 2002For Halloween 2002, I didn't dress up, but I did carve a Frank Zappa pumpkin in a totally different style than I've ever done. Instead of making the cuts all the way through the hollow pumpkin, this carving only removes outer surface of the pumpkin. When the light shines through, it is actually shining through the pumpkin flesh. I took three different photos of this pumpkin with different levels of outside light.
|For the Jack O' Lantern photograph above, this time I used an SLR camera and kept manually rewinding the film so that I could get many exposures on one frame. It is five different images of the same pumpkin.|
Halloween Younger Years
All of the great costumes you see here were designed by my mom, also a Halloween-lover.
