Classify this as creepy but fun. I decided to make a jack-o’-lantern out of Taylor Armstrong’s face, and I must say that I’m very happy with the results. I really wanted to do some pop culture themed pumpkin, and what better place to look for inspiration but The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Clearly, I had to pumkin-ify Taylor as she has one of the most distinct faces on Bravo. I’m not saying she necessarily looks like a jack-o’-lantern, but I just knew those famous lips would translate particularly well to a gourd.
After successfully creating Taylor in pumpkin form, I have to say that I’m a little obsessed with doing more. Ideally, it would be great to make pumpkins of the entire Beverly Hills cast, but I’m not sure I have the stamina for such an endeavor (not to mention the time). Next year…

The fun began Friday night at Lisa Timmons house. Here’s Lisa finding a good Taylor image to adapt onto the pumpkin.
Our attempt to recreate Taylor’s face on the pumpkin is a bit questionable to say the least. But we still like it.
The end result (middle) certainly looks scary, but it doesn’t bear much resemblance to the reality star. For those wondering, the pumpkin on the left is Lisa’s Walking Dead / Rick stencil. The one on the right is Sly’s cute but sad old man pumpkin. Sly insists the swirls on the sides are ears, but they look more like a powdered wig to me.
Nevertheless, despite its inaccuracies, I kept my Taylor pumpkin. The next day I also made a Boo (from Super Mario Bros.) jack-o-lantern. I was so enthused by it that I decided to give Taylor a second shot. This time I created a stencil in photoshop and carefully applied it to yet another pumpkin…
Ta-da!!! You can see the stencil on the left as well as what I’m convinced is the last pumpkin carving toolkit in the city.
I wish I could make the pumpkin yell “Enough! ENOUGH!!”
From this angle, it looks vaguely like Sofia Vergara. I’m not going to lie: I’m really proud of myself. Also, I need a life.
What do we think? Time for an Ina Garten jack-o’-lantern next? Maybe Ina and Jeffrey? I need more pumpkins.
