Pumpkin Pokeball by MapleRose Pumpkin Pokeball by MapleRose
Instead of a Haro, I carved my pumpkin into a Pokeball!

I used a pie pumpkin, so it's pretty small (and portable), about 9-10in diameter. I think this is less of a pumpkin carving and more of a pumpkin craft...

The hardest part was making the hinge; I ended up sewing it with wire, which was not much fun. I debated on whether to paint it or not, and decided to paint it to make it look more like a Pokeball. I used acrylic. I kept the handle because it's too hard to cut off, and it makes opening it easier.

The Pokemon I put inside are made from Model Magic, which I've made over the past few month. They're gym leader Candice's team, and I made them to go with my Candice cosplay. I'll post pics of them later.

Unfortunately it's already starting to rot...

Sounds like a wonderful annual project! Maybe doing all sorts of monster balls?

haha that would be interesting. Though probably requires a lot of paint, since most Pokeballs aren't orangey XD

Hmm. True. Are there any other color pumpkins in your country? We have a bumpy green one.
Although it would be a lousy candidate for a "ball".
I guess a lot of fresh paint for every year?
