Boba Fett Jack o’ lantern

With Halloween just around the corner, I thought I’d make a video with something you can use to make your halloween just a little bit nerdier (or depending on where you’re sitting, way cooler) this year.

I spent some time last weekend to carve Boba Fett (From Star Wars) into a pumkin. Overall, it was pretty simple to do. It took about 2 1/2 hours including all the gut scooping, but that time would be GREATLY reduced if I had a proper poking tool to work with. Unfortunately my sisters dog ate the one we had while we were removing the insides of our pumpkin.

Originally I had planned to make a river (from Firefly) pumpkin, but after I thought about it for a bit, realized that it would be way outside my ability. I’ve never really done any sort of fancy pumpkin carving before, so I thought I’d start with something a little less fancy.

I also should have printed out a template just a tiny bit smaller. I used the 8×10 version, but the 7×9 size probably would have fit just a little bit better. I’ve included a link to all of the different sizes you’re likely to want below. A word of caution though; The smaller you go, the harder it will be to keep from snapping the remaining pumpkin pieces as your carving.
