Some pumpkins have all the luck. While your front porch masterpiece might not have all his triangles in the right place (why are three-sided shapes so difficult?), other squash out there will become amazing works of art. From classic spooks to grumpy old men and favorite movie characters, click through the slideshow below to find 12 wow-worthy masterpieces we scooped from around the web.

While not especially daring in design, what gets us about this pumpkin is the glow of the candle being used as a stand-in for a brilliant sunset. Talk about using your gourd! Thanks to Bernard via flickr, for spotting this at the Holtorf Pumpkin Carving Association.
