A pumpkin a day, the flaming porcupine!

Filed Under: seasonal

I like to go big with our annual pumpkins -- the more bizarre the better. Recently, my three children and I happened upon the idea of combining some of our pyro inclinations with a bit of obsessive detail to match patterns, which resulted in the Flaming Porcupine Pumpkin Creation. Sure, Halloween is still over a week away, and we're already lighting pumpkins on fire, but that's part of what makes Halloween so darn fun. What other time of year can you light fruit on fire and get away with it?

Technically our animal does not look so much like a porcupine as it might a pig, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and we like to believe our creation is a porcupine. Take a gander and let us know what you think, and if you have something similar to share with us here at DIY Life, leave it in the comments.

    My problem with this video is that you were too close for most of it to really give a decent perspective and then you didn't provide an end result view even though there was a point sometime during the early part of the video where the end idea was understood.

    on another note:
    Why are a lot of todays movies shot with cameras that are constantly bouncing, too close to convey the scene, and fast scene changes?

    Cheap, flashy cinematograhpy doesn't make for good movies.

    It wasnt very bouncy at all. And there are several shots of the finished project. And the camera wasnt a cheap digital camera. It appears like that because youtube has soo many videos that it has to compress the qualitie to a point were they can fit it in there.
