Airstream-o-Lantern!

i know i'm not the first to do this... and i'm sure i won't be the last! any one else got pics of theirs from this year? i meant to carve this guy at the Georgia rally a few weeks ago, but didn't seem to have the time!

can anyone guess what it is?

Cool

Props to you the day before my favorite holiday. Met my wife at a Halloween Store, and had our first date on Haloween!

TOO COOL!

Oooooh, oooooh, I want one too! And I could make a little pumpkin Airstream awning for it, and curtains, oh yes and lots of little pillows on a tiny pumpkin gaucho. . . .

Just curious, what tools did you use to produce this charming Airstream rendering? I love the Bargman running lights!

Acknowledging your problem is the first step. But it's no use, I think you've succumbed to the disease long ago. See How much of an adiction do we all have! for support, because there is no recovery.
