The most recent carving kits seem to rely on these eye and mouth features that you insert in the pumpkin after carving. It reminds me of when you would create collages of faces by cutting out features from magazines in art class.

Older carving kits bank more on traditional carving techniques.

These patterns really are clip art with thicker lines. They can still work if you carve the blackened-out parks and score the thinner lines of the pumpkin.

I really like these Princess icons from Japan. They would be simple yet elegant patterns around the circumference of a pumpkin.

I really love the idea of taking images from the original movie posters and carving them, especially in Ariel's case.

For a great 3D effect, a pumpkin makes an excellent ballgown.
