THE RULES:
This is a pumpkin carving or painting contest.
The theme: Anything related to the vast Coheed and Cambria universe or their associated side projects

Entries will be judged on concept and execution (skill of you carving or painting). You may only enter the contest once. Please submit your photos in this thread ONLY.  (*Forum Members Only) The contest starts TODAY, Tuesday October 22, 2013 and ends on Thursday October 31, 2013 at 11:45PM MDT. No entries will be allowed after this time, as the thread will be locked at exactly 11:45 PM MDT on October 31!

The winner will be notified through a private message on the forum from Matt on November 1st.

TIPS AND TRICKS:
Pumpkins spoil extremely quickly once you give them the knife. Take your pictures as soon as you can after you have completed. Practice your flash photography. Your pumpkin could look fantastic in the dark, but using too much flash will set you up for disaster and ruin the appearance.

Pumpkins are usually lit with a candle, however you may use any light source to get the effect you desire. Red bulbs, black lights, you name it.

Have a happy and safe Halloween!
