Halloween is a special time of year. It’s that one day where we confuse our children by telling them to not only take candy from strangers, but to go out and beg for it while dressed in an overpriced polyester superhero costume. It’s also the time of year for pumpkin carving.
This is something I have wanted to do for awhile now. Enter the OSSEC-O-Lantern. This is my first attempt at carving something other than a predictable toothy smile into a pumpkin. I thought the OSSEC logo would be perfect, so I gave it a shot.
This is what the pumpkin looks like before it is lit. For the center “eye,” I cut up a lens from a cheap kids pair of sunglasses.
And here is what it looks like lit up. Notice my feeble attempt at getting the OSSEC logo shading right.
