Some of them are pretty impressive. I thought the "projection" effect used by a couple of them was clever. They carved the pumpkin so that it would project an image behind it. I've never seen that done before.

Pumpkin Masters calls those shadow pumpkins. They had a whole book full of templates.

I would love to try those. It would definitely take a lot of practice!

Feel free to download the book. Print out the templates. Practice on a helium balloon.

Last night 'twas witching Hallowe'en
Dearest; an apple russet- brown
I pared, and thrice above my crown
Whirled the long skin; they watched in keen;
I flung it far; they laughed and cried me shame
Dearest, there lay the letter of your name!

I carve the lids in shapes that project onto the ceiling. A bat is my favorite.
All you that doth my grave pass by,
As you are now so once was I,
As I am now so you must be,
Prepare for death & follow me.
