Jack-o-Lantern face, that is! Growing up, my pumpkin dictator mother decreed that there could only be one expression carved into the side of a ripe Halloween pumpkin – triangle eyes, half-moon mouth, the end! It’s a classic for a reason, to be sure. All the same, she was (jokingly) aghast the year I came along and added two pointy fangs to the half-moon mouth; what the hey was this kid doing messing with tradition anyways?! I attempt to be a glass-half-full kind of person, so I’m going to say I was just respecting tradition. In fact, I respect it so much – well, just take a peek at last year’s tiny Jack-o-Lantern.
Weegie is a non-conformist, and she thinks my later work has grown repetitive. How rude! Also, says the cat in the lobster costume! And yes, that is a 16-year-old torbi dressed as a crustacean, sitting beside a lit Jack-o-Lantern on my diningroom table; what of it? 😉
These happy Jack-o-Lantern nails are for my mom, both the classic, proscribed expression and avec fangs, just to mix things up and drive my mom a teeny bit bonkers. Happy Halloween!
