  27. I just saw this and saw the site and got waayyy too excited: Get your Obama Victory Hands (www.obamafoamfingers.com) in time for Election Day!

  31. Hey Kevin and Minh!

    Congrats on getting into the Top 10. You’ve been busy, I can see. :)

    Love your pumpkin.

    A pro? Me? Well, its the first year I tried, but a little too late and last minute.. Didn’t sell any pumpkins. Coulda used the cash, but there’s always next year.

    Yeah, this election is kind of rigged in Obama’s favor. :) I do hope that it is a premonition for tomorrow though!

    Best of luck on the contest, and thanks for your kind words!

    -Austen

  33. cute pumpkin, cute couple, cute video. GO OBAMA!!

  35. Allright, I voted for you, but I should get 50% of the prize if you win :)

    Awesome pumpkin. I didn’t know you were in to that sort of thing. You’ll have to teach me to pumpkin next time I’m around.

  37. Kevin and Mihn, well looks like you’re gonna take this one. Great job. Did ya hear the first vote count of the 2008 election is in from Dixville Notch, NH – 15 votes for O, 6 for McRage. Plus the Redskins lost tonight and when they win their last home game before the general election the incumbent party wins the White House! So hopefully these are all good omens!

    Anyhow, quite fortuitously I made a second Barack-O-Lantern on the 1st of Nov that was generated from the same photo you guys used to generate your second pattern and pumpkin – check out my product at my site (with 19 non-Obama pumpkins I carved this year – I’m not a ‘pro’ but I enjoy carving during the Halloween season):

    Again, congrats and great job

  39. Welp. Looks like you got me! I hope this attests that Washington is already likely going for Obama. I hope this means that Texas will turn and go for Obama as well!

    Congratulations, both of you!

  40. Austen Hoogen on November 4th, 2008
  41. Good job!! :)

  42. Taylor on November 4th, 2008
  43. Thanks everyone! We really appreciate your votes. Minh had an iPod Nano that just broke a couple of days ago, so this is perfect timing. There were some great pumpkins out there, so congratulations to everyone. Now let’s go vote for the guy on the pumpkin, today’s the last day!

  44. Kevin on November 4th, 2008

  47. Hi webmaster!

  48. Kazelxjt on November 12th, 2008
  49. Great job, the effect when you turn off the lights is just amazing!

    But I suspect it would take me (and most pumpkin-carving novices) more than 5 minutes, like maybe an hour and a half!

  51. […] a picture of last year’s jack-o-lantern, which came just in time for the election and even won an award! That’s right, a pumpkin award.  Don’t mock […]
