So, remember back a few weeks ago when we invited you all to send us pictures of your best Halloween decorations and pumpkin masterpieces? Well, we did. We also picked out a few of our favorites, and thought you might like to see ’em, too.

This pumpkin (pictured, right), carved by freshman Amanda Burke, caught our attention pretty quickly (we’re sure you can see why).

The artist gets mad props for venturing away from tradition and letting school spirit cover that orange canvas. We couldn’t help but be impressed by Burke’s technique: Oski’s face is partially carved and partially shaved, creating a variety of really cool glow effects when placed in its natural habitat — the dark!

Go Bears, and go Amanda, for carving a truly legit pumpkin! Reward yourself by eating some of those totally addictive mini-Snickers. read more »

We want to see your jack-o-lanterns, your haunted houses, your giant spider web lawn decorations. read more »
