hitchhiking ghosts jack o lantern!

The hitchhiking ghosts are, clearly, some of my favorite Disney characters of all-time. And since I've had everything HHG on the brain lately, it was an obvious choice to use them for my jack-o-lantern as well!

I had intended to do 3 basic light sources: the outlines, the cut outs, and the scrape-offs (I'm sure there is a proper term for that, but I don't know it), but the rind on this pumpkin did NOT want to scrape off, so I ended up doing more cutting than originally planned. I was able to scrape out Phineas's doctor bag, but the rest of the rind was not giving up the ghost, as it were.

I think the simplified pattern works okay and I may even try it again one night this week (if I can find the time!).
