With Halloween aproaching it reminded me how cool I thought it would be to carve a stealy face on a pumpkin or two for the front porch. You see those kits out there that have some really cool patterns, that turn out great if you do it the way they instruct. I was wonderin, if any of you have seen a Grateful Dead pumpkin carving kit. It may not even exist. If not, I'm going to find a print on the internet of the stealy face, blow it up and tape that to the front of my pumpkin to "poke" out my pattern. It'll be one cool lookin pumpkin that most trick or treaters will not even realize is the one of the symbols of the greates rock-n-roll band ever. This is a question I could ask at rukind, so I thought I would. Thanks

Yeah, great idea. I've never seen one, but I'll keep my eyes peeled.

The Doo-Dah man would be pretty cool too, although it'd be a lot harder than te Stealie.

I used to do one every year, honest. Halloween is my b-day, and I do take it super serious. I wouls always just draw the stealie free hand, and carve it out. I found it best to leave out some of the more minute details, though.
