Do NOT put this pumpkin on your head!

Did you carve your pumpkin this year? I was half-tempted to do mine as the Triforce, but opted for a more traditional look.

The following jack o’lanterns, however, paid homage to Nintendo. So they are clearly bigger fans than we are.

Have a look at the Nintendo-fied pumpkins after the jump!

Also after the jump, yours truly in his Halloween costume…

It's a-me! Pumpkin Mario!

Dragon Quest's Slime: Pumpkin Flavor

Majora's Lantern

And what’s more terrifying than a Majora’s Lantern? Your trusty News Correspondent dressed in a handmade NES-era Link costume…

Where's my Magical Sword?

Happy Halloween, ZU-ers!

    • bastian

      Ooo! Show us pics!

  • You should have entered these in a jack-o-lantern designing contest, Bastian. Also…you really look like Neil in your NES-era costume!

    • Headphoneguy

      I thought the exact same thing! I hope he don't go strangling himself with a nintendo controler…

      • bastian

        Yikes! No!
        Besides, fairies aren't really my type… 😛

    • bastian

      No no no. These aren't my Jack O'Lanterns. These are from the sourced site at the end of the story. My pumpkin was a generic two circles, one triangle, one wide pointy-teeth mouth.

      The fact that I ended up looking a bit like Neil startled me. I should have shaved. And by that point at the party, my fancy horizontal Link hair got too messed up. 🙁

    Majora's Mask looks pretty cool on a pumpkin!

    • Joko tree

      No joke.

      • QueenxLink

        Aw, well that sucks! 🙁

  • Aquanam

    Lol i actually carved my pumpkin as the herald of Hyrule.

    Then it rotted the night before Halloween because we had a huge frost -.-'

  • homestar43

    I actually carved a pumpkin using the design of the eagle Triforce. I printed off a picture of it, taped it onto the front of the pumpkin, made an outline with the pointy outliner tool, took off the paper, and carved the pumpkin using the punctured outline. It turned out pretty freakin' awesomely. I was going to post it on YouTube, but when I went to take a picture, part of it had caved in. 🙁 Dangit.
