Not, alas, the Billy Corgan variety. An actual pumpkin. If you looked closely on last night’s Talking Dead, you might have seen a few of the roundish orange veggies given a whole different kind of spice, with some familiar faces making (lantern) light of the situation:
With stage lights on, of course, it’s hard to get the full effect. Obviously one is King Ezekiel because of the dreadlocks, but blink and you might miss your guess on the others…until you see them fully darkened and lit from within, as the gods–and the expert carvers of Pumpkin Masters (maker of America’s #1 pumpkin carving kit)–intended. To remedy that, those Basquiats of the blade have sent us over some images of the Walking Dead pumpkins as they were truly meant to be seen.
What with Carol giving her best “death or cookies” fright face, Ezekiel roaring like his pet Shiva, and Morgan wielding his stick, Chris looks like he’s about ready to rely on the power of his mind to hold them at bay. Or, y’know, unleash them on the Saviors, as we all would if we could. Check out the close-ups of each pumpkin in the gallery below and see what you make of them all up close and personal-like.
Did you do any Walking Dead-themed pumpkins this year for Halloween? Let us know in comments so we can check them out!
