HALOLZWEEN 2009 - Captain Falcon

HALOLZWEEN 2009 - I Have A Rocket Launcher Your Argument Is Invalid

HALOLZWEEN 2009 - PEELS

Our first winners in a three-way tie for 6th place (at 3 points each) are “Falcon Pumpkin” by Pikamari, “I Have A Rocket Launcher” and “PEELS” by BananaDib, Dr. Falcon and Wasabi!

These three entries did a good job of racking up honorable mention points across all the judges with both Halolz references and carving difficulty! Congrats to these three winners who have won some Ninja-Bot sticker packs!

Haloween 2008 Pumpkin Extravaganza!

Well it took me a while to get them all sorted (also I was busy giving out candy to kids all evening and dressing my daughter up in a bee suit…) but here are the entries we received for the 2008 Pumpkin Carving Contest! Considering the short notice I gave everyone for this first year of doing it, I think the results were awesome! In fact, I thought they were so awesome that I’ve decided that all the entrants will be getting “Honorable Mention” status (which means a prize)! As for the first, second and third place winners… I’ll announce them in the next three posts!

But for now, here’s a listing of the creators of these fine pumpkins, from top to bottom!

SPAWN MORE JACK-O’-LORDS

Yes, I know… waaay past Halloween. Still I couldn’t resist posting this crazy set of pumpkin carvings by Ian Fisher, who won Blizzard’s contest this year! I mean it’s even complete with pumpkin gut creep!

HALOLZWEEN 2009 - Mother Brain and Baby Metroid

And finally, our 1st place winner for 2009….. with an overwhelming 23 (out of 24 points)……
Ian Wagner and his awe-inspiring “Mother Brain & Baby Metroid” pumpkin set! Pretty amazing job, right? Well it’s certainly not surprising as he was our 1st place winner in 2008 as well! (with his impressive Samus pumpkin)

For a second year of impressing the Halolz judges, Ian will be getting another mountain of shirts (and other stuff) from Ninja-Bot!

Congratulations… and congrats to everyone for making our second annual pumpkin carving contest a big success! In fact to thank everyone who entered we will be sending out consolation prizes to everyone who entered this year! Just keep watching your email for more info!

Happy Halloween!

Another Anime ConventionHey! I’ll be hanging out at another anime convention this weekend… which ironically is named Another Anime Convention! It’s in Nashua, New Hampshire… so if you’re nearby this is a fun convention worth checking out! Last year I made it to the final round of the Smash Bros Melee tournament with Mr. Game & Watch, which was like, the greatest Smash Bros moment of my life… so hopefully this year I’ll have time to play again!

Also congrats to Loirnus who won my Halo 3 LE Gamerpics/Theme auction! To everyone else… YOU SHOULD HAVE TRIED HARDER

Oh and with two weeks until Halloween I’m working up a little contest for the site. All I will say for now is, start thinking up some good video game related pumpkin carving ideas!

Halolzween 2010 Winners - Halo Reach Haunted Helmet
Halolzween 2010 Winners - Halo Reach Haunted HelmetHalolzween 2010 Halloween Pumpkin Contest Entries

And finally our grand prize for most creative pumpkin goes to Nick Everson for his Halo: Reach Haunted Helmet! Not only is it a great design, but it looks awesome when it’s on fire! I guess that particular haunted helmet belongs to someone at Bungie?

Our runners-up prizes for most creative go to Nick and Molly for their uniquely lit Pacman and Ghosts, and Daniel Potvin for The Original Ghost Pump-kemon that features everyone’s three favorite original ghost Pokémon (and a creatively painted Pokeball!) Well done, and congrats again to everyone for making this a fantastic 3rd Halloween carving contest!

The Orange SpyHalolzween 2010 Winner - Gentleman Heavy Pumpkin

Our grand prize for most humorous pumpkin goes to ChimpoDelFuego for “The Orange Spy” (possibly one of the simplest winning designs we’ve ever seen!) and I was told we would be carving pumpkin!, a pumpkinized version of Gentleman Heavy (complete with top hat and monocle!)

Our humorous runners-up include GengarKing’s PumpKoffin’ (a Koffing with an awesome face is good, but adding a “poison gas attack” makes it great!), and suicid3clutch’s Old Snake takes out an Enemy Soldier for it’s stealthy kill pose! Congrats guys!
