Batman Pumpkins

I love all the wonderful pumpkins at Halloween. I’m sure these pumpkins took a lot of time and a lot of carving skill. All of them have Batman with his cowl. Some are just his face. Others have part of his costume too.

One is The Dark Knight and has the Bat-symbol lit up in the background.

One has the cityscape buildings carved behind him.

I hope you enjoy this collection.

The Purrfect Catwoman Pumpkin

Catwoman Pumpkin carved by Joey Edwards

This wonderful Catwoman pumpkin was carved by Joey Edwards from Edwards Art + Design. This is Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman from Batman Returns. This carving took Joey 18 hours. Joey streamed the whole carving over five sessions on Twitch.  It would be amazing to watch this detailed of a carving being created.

The thing which always amazes me when I look at these pumpkins is the way the artist creates textures. Catwoman’s glove really look like it is made out of spandex. It reflects light in spots and there are little creases at the fingers.

BATMAN BIRTHDAY WEEK: Two-Face Carves Himself A Place At The Celebration

Two-Face Pumpkin Carving

This Saturday is Batman’s 80th birthday! I hope I look as good when I’m 80.  Smile  To celebrate Batman’s big day, I’m declaring this Batman Birthday Week on Between the Pages.  Each day, I’m going to feature a cool cake, cake topper, cookie, or pumpkin carving featuring the classic characters that make Gotham City home.

Today, I’m featuring this stunning Two-Face Pumpkin Carving made by Villafane Studios.  As you can see, Villafane Studios are masters at pumpkin carvings, but they also make mindboggling sand sculptures and really cool toys.  I highly recommend taking a few minutes and digging around their site or social media accounts.  They are such amazing artists.

Three interesting pieces of trivia about Two-Face:

As many Batman fans know, before the horrific attack which transformed him into Two-Face, he was Gotham City’s District Attorney Harvey Dent.  That’s not always been the case – when Two-Face first appeared, he was Harvey KENT! But, his name was changed to Dent because DC Comics didn’t want Two-Face confused with a certain mild mannered reporter for the Daily Planet.

Legendary writer Harlan Ellison wrote a two parter for the Batman ‘66 television show called “The Two-Way Crimes of Two-Face”.  Unfortunately, the episode was never produced.  Who was cast as Two-Face? A young star named Clint Eastwood.

What do Two-Face, Lando Calrissian, and Captain James T. Kirk have in common? Bill Dee Williams and William Shatner have both provided the voice of Two-Face in animated movies.

Come back tomorrow – same Bat-Time, same Bat-Channel – for Day 2 of Batman Birthday Week because Some Days You Just Can’t Get Rid Of A Bomb.
