1. Every year, I carve the office pumpkin. The concept is usually mine, as well as the execution. Pretty much, I do everything for the jack-o-lantern. Last year, my pumpkin placed second in the building pumpkin contest. I turned the large pumpkin into an apple, and pinned together several smaller pumpkins into a caterpillar, and spray painted everything accordingly. A few years before, a coworker and I turned a pumpkin into a pig, using fruit pieces for various piggy features and spray painting it pink. Other concepts I ran with in the past were Cinderella's carriage and a fallen snowman (Frosty v. global warming). So my method is turning the pumpkin into other things. This year, I'm not as inspired. I have few ideas, but none that are that great. So I need your help
What good jack-o-lantern ideas can you give me, where I transform the pumpkin into something else?
2. This year, I'm also dressing up in a costume for work. I don't really have any ideas for this one either. I just don't want something that's cumbersome, that involves a mask (I do have to work).
