This week we Advocate staffers had a carve-off for our first Jack-o-Lantern competition. You can see a sneak peak of the magic happening here — the alien-inspired pumpkin is pretty sweet, I must say (yup, that’s mine).

If you’re feeling inspired to do a little pumpkin carving of your own, you can create a virtual Jack-o-Lantern. And the best part: you don’t have all those goopy innards to clean up afterward. If you need some help getting those creative juices flowing, you can browse here and here.

On behalf of us all here at Advocate, have a happy and safe Halloween.
