The Lantern Corps Rainbow Gets Colorful Carvings for Halloween
While Grace Belancik (a.k.a. DeviantArt user RocketGirluvsUkitake) flies her comic book fan flag all year long, this Halloween she's letting her colors shine in full force with a full lineup of multi-food jack-o'-lanterns bearing the emblems of DC Comics' lantern corps.
Belancik took a trip to a pumpkin farm and a local grocer to obtain her base materials. Her foodie emotional spectrum consists of a white pumpkin (White Lantern Corps), a red kuri squash (Red Lantern Corps), a pumpkin (Orange Lantern Corps), a spaghetti squash (Sinestro Corps), an apple gourd (Green Lantern Corps), a Hubbard squash (Blue Lantern Corps), a blueberry (Indigo Lantern Corps), a red onion (Star Sapphire Corps), and an eggplant (Black Lantern Corps).
After obtaining a pantry full of goods, Belancik told us how she got to work:
"I found each logo online and simplified them to stencil form and printed them. I opened and cleaned out each pumpkin/squash, taped each stencil to the proper fruit and used a push-pin to transfer the pattern. I then used a pumpkin carving kit to cut out each logo. Some fruits were easier to carve than others - the green one had really hard skin that made it almost impossible to carve. For indigo I just used a marker - a blueberry is impossible to carve."
