Zelda Jack-O'-Lanterns 1 - Link

It may be traditional to carve out scary faces in your pumpkins, but it sure is boring. At least, it would be in comparison to Deviantart user johwee‘s creations. Halloween is a mere week away, and she’s been preparing again with her beautiful Zelda carvings. This year she’s made this fantastic Jack-o’-lantern of Link’s face.

You’ll notice I said “again”–that’s because she’s been doing this for years. Her earliest Zelda carving goes back to 2007! In her ongoing efforts, she has also made incredible Wind Waker pumpkins featuring Toon Link, Princess Zelda, Ganondorf, and my personal favourite, The Helmaroc King. The professional detail in these is emphasised by the warm glow of the fire, and it sure looks amazing. While it may not be a scary theme (alright, the Ganondorf one is a little terrifying), I could only dream of having Jack-o’-lanterns as gorgeous as these. Read on to see her earlier works, and go check out her Zelda gallery here–she’s also created Pokemon, Mario and Disney ones, among others!

    They all look well done, but the "Link Head" Jack o' Lantern look like her best work yet. The high contrast shows his determination to cleanse the world of Evil and save the princess of the kingdom!

    The one with Helmaroc King is amazing! They're all great, I also really like the Hylian Shield one.

    Oh my goodness! Those are my kind of jack-o-lanterns! My favourite would have to be Link and Ciela. Just wonderful!

    I am shocked that partial carving could ever give such variance in brightness. I mean look at Toon Zelda. LOOK AT HER. ALL THOSE SHADES AUKFGKSHJHDGKUFSHBJDGYJ
