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?

That is AWESOME! :wow: I'm impressed! I'm also fascinated by your Pokémons made by Model Magic - that modelling paste looks interesting to work with. I haven't seen that brand anywhere before, but I've seen similar ones.

Model Magic is fun and easy to work with, and it's air-dried :D

So that's what's inside a Pokeball! With five Pokemon in one ball, it sure must be crowded in there!

do you think people would get called out on for cheating if more than one pokemon came out of a ball?

Oh My Goodness! Thank you so much for the watch! XD

Hm, once I saw this episode of the pokemon anime about a supposedly invincible Whiscash. It turned out that its owner stuffed 3 pokeballs in its mouth, so it seemed to be able to use any type of special attack O.O

oh yeah, I remember that episode, this guy put 3 Pokeballs inside a Pelliper's mouth, and it was able to use move it otherwise can't (Flamethrower, Vine Whip, and Watergun I think)

OH, it was a Pelliper! XD Doh, that was totally off XD Hmm, maybe the last one was thunderbolt? I would hope that Pelliper can use water gun XD
