Tallahassee – A tribute to Zombieland

I’ve added a new character to the Flaming Pumpkins picture gallery! Oh yes, one a weekend from now until Halloween!

It seems only fitting to make a flaming pumpkin tribute to that most noble of Zombie Hunters – Tallahassee. With some help from Zombiepumpkins I was able to carve this figure in just a few minutes. I was originally going to go with another pattern but this one was too good and timely to pass up. I have to say he looks cool as hell and he let out some wicked flames.

The first flaming pumpkin of the year!

It’s been raining almost the entire day, but there was a break in the weather so my son and sprung into action and torched our first victim of the year! I bought a pretty heft 28 pound pumpkin when at the grocery store earlier in the day and was just itching to use him. We went with Asylum Joker, gutting and carving him as quickly as we could. We were racing against the clock and the giddiness was almost overwhelming (read sickening or perhaps even pathetic). But we diligently carved and scraped and brought to bear the first victim of the year. I have to say he looked pretty good.

Since it was a special occasion I loaded him up with two rolls of TP just so he would have plenty of firepower and could fend off the rain. I may placed a touch more accelerant into the pumpkin just for good measure.

He went off like a shot! He burst into action and almost instantly he was a flaming inferno! He lasted a good 45 minutes from start to finish and I got some great shots. I even played around with taking pictures of just the flames which look almost liquid.

Just as the flames started to die down the rain started. We had planned ahead and were standing under a large umbrella, but it was time to make a dash and get everything back inside.

Here is the Joker in all his flaming glory. Click the image or the link below to see the full gallery of images.

It was a damn good test and make no mistake, next weekend another one will become a flaming sacrifice.
