I'm hoping I'll be able to come with something. I haven't carved a pumpkin in a while, so it might look odd, but I hope to give it my best!

Ok i want to do this, but I'm not sure how I can. Would outlining a paper printout and then carving work? I've never carved a pumpkin before.

@Nancy - yay glad you're on board:)

@Wendy - when I carved one or painted the one I did a couple years ago, I just printed out the silhouette and cut it out and then taped it onto the pumpkin and traced the outline and then painted it after removing the stencil. It worked pretty well that way. When carving, I carved out the silhouette but in the places where there's supposed to be something like the inside of the magnifying glass or inside her arm, I think I used a straight pin to add something there so when it was lit up at night, it would look more like the silhouette.
