Geeky Halloween Pumpkins - Carvings Beyond Your Wildest Imagination
Pumpkin works of geeky art
Geeky is hot! Why have your regular Jack-o-lanterns like everyone else when your Halloween pumpkins can be something unique and well, geeky!
When I decided to make a collection of geeky Halloween pumpkin carvings I knew I will find pumpkins that would be beyond amazing but nothing could have prepared me for the awesomeness I found. Nothing. It was beyond my wildest imagination and I can now say there's a new name in my top modern artists list!
Alex Wer aka The Pumpkin Geek makes the most amazing pumpkin carvings and it's really easy to fall in love with his works. This whole page could be easily dedicated to him, well in most part it actually is.
He was kind enough to grant me the permission to feature his works (for my and your enjoyment).
As I know we all are not as skilled if you scroll down the page you will also find pumpkin carving project suitable for you and me with a ton of stencils you can use to make your masterpiece.
Meet Alex Wer - The Pumpkin Geek - Master of his craft
This man is an artist and by scrolling down this page you will soon see why. There is one thing I resent him though... He made it extremely difficult for me to pick out just a few of his works to spotlight as one is better than another and I would have no objection on featuring all of his works...
Star Trek Carved Pumpkins - To Boldly Go
Star trek pumpkins are a must for any geek! These are all carved by Alex Wer and were showcased at the Star Trek convention.
Star Trek Captains
This one is one of my favourite works of his - I mean who wouldn't love a Star Wars and Star Trek mash up?
I do love all of my space sci-fi series and franchises but if I would have to pick one I would use the force and go with Star Wars, it was something I grew up with (although I did watch Star Trek grewing up too)... My partner on the other hand is a die hard Trekkie and hasn't even watched Star Wars before we started dating (can you imagine it? It was a totals shock to me!). He now likes Star Wars too but we often clash on which is better Star Wars or Star Trek so if we were to have a geeky pumpkin for Halloween this one would be it!
The Original Star Wars Pumpkin
If you ask any true Star Wars fan which triology is better; first (IV, V, V) or second (I, II, III) they will unanimously vote for the first (original).
Luke I am Your Father!
One of the most epic characters and villians in the history of television... Darth Vader.
Browser From Super Mario - From my favourite video game
This takes Browser to a whole another level. I dare say he looks better on a pumpkin than in real life, erm I mean in the video game.
Or Maybe Something From The Marvel Universe? - Wolverine!
The blades just pop.

The Geekie Awards August 2013 - Best Craft/Art Award - One Pumpkin to Rule Them All
The 1st Annual Geekie Awards were held on the August 18th in Hollywood and Wer was one of the nominees in the Art and Craft category (see all nominees). The competition was tough and all the entries were fantastic, there's only one that can rule them all and it was a pumpkin!
Simple Geeky Carved Pumpkins We Mere Mortals Can Make =)
I don't know about you, dear reader, but I for myself am sure I would never, ever (ok maybe in a year or so) be able to carve a masterpiece such as Alex does so from now on we will take it down a notch (quite a few notches).

Minecraft is extremely popular and since all of Minecraft world is square and pix-elated you should have no trouble carving up this one.

Pac Man and Ghosts
One of the most legendary games of all time! This one could be my project as I love Pac Man (and it looks a bit easier than Super Mario). Pac Man is one of the first games I have ever played and I enjoy it even today.
