    What does Pumpkinrot's mummified priest from his CHURCH display have in common with 16th century mummified monks from Palermo Capuchin (1) and 19th century mummified bodies from Guanajuato Mexico (2), more than you might think. There has always been a phenomenon known as Simultaneous Invention...

    Etsy sellers are infamous for stealing peoples artistic ideas, then make cheap crappy knock-offs and sell them as their own. I just came across this post and was furious when I saw it. Not only did they completely rip off one of the most famous scarecrows out their they even ripped off his name...

    Well it has been 365 days since we last read the musings of Mr. Rot. Boy has a lot happened since then. We may never know why he stopped scripting his tells of intrigue; or why the flickering glow of his presence has faded. What we do know is that his dark and powerful artistry has touched so...

    Last year I saw some of the work that the artist known as Pumpkinrot (pumpkinrot.com) had created. I thought their work was awesome - I loved how the scarecrows and sentinels they created had such an organic quality about them. The blending of human shapes with the shapes of trees made it so...

    Here are two pictures of the pumpkin sentinel I'm making. He stands about 8 feet tall so he should be pretty intimidating. I got my ideas from pumpkinrot and instructables.

    I have always been a fan of "pumpkinrot's" work. His 2015 display especially fascinated me and I have been planning on making my version of his staked copse's for a while. So here are a few pics for your consideration. The spines are made of bent pvc, ribs are 10/2 romex and the sculls are...

    So, I thought I'd check in on Pumpkinrot, haven't been by his place for about a week... "Sorry, the website www.pumpkinrot.com cannot be found" Huh? Tell me one of the great Halloween bloggers and artists of the Dark Fantastique hasn't lost his website and gone away. The photography, the...

    Did Pumpkinrot ever web-publish a tutorial on his materials or methods? I mean Pumpkinrot, himself. So I tried to search the Forums here, and tried searching google, yahoo, etc... But the name "Pumpkinrot" is synonymous with the style - so everyone putting their how-to on line uses his name...

    I know most if not all of you have seen the wonderful work that Pumpkinrot has done. From Scarecrows to the Tinies to those wonderful, wonderful Sentinels we all drool over. The question I'm posing is, Has anybody ever thought of asking Pumpkinrot just how he does it? Maybe he could post a...

    what size are you using for the head??? I want to go the funkin route because I like the smooth realistic pumkin look. So I have a couple options but they are far apart in size. My first instinct is to go big with the small giant at 18x26 but going big has gotten me in trouble before. next...

    Pumpkinrot inspired sentinels Just got done with my first paper-mache project ( building 3 Pumpkinrot sentinels) - happy with how they turned out so far :) Anyone have suggestions on what I can do with a 2' pumpkin (made that out of a beachball)? Thought about a "Welcome" carving - but seems...

    I have always loved the Pumpkin Sentinels I've seen everyone make on the forum and decided I needed one in our haunt. I have to thank GhostTown for the amazingly detailed "Ode de Pumpkinrot" tutorial. Here's what I came up with, thanks to all the inspiration I've seen on the forum. Pumpkin...

    We've all seen it...hell, if you're anything like me, you've been staring at the images for years. Wondering if there was a way. Is there a way for me, an average Joe Haunter, to make the Pumpkin Sentinels like Pumpkinrot makes? Well, I don't know. But I am sure as hell going to try :) So...

    If you have even an inkling of love for Halloween, I should hope you know the legendary artist and blogster, Pumpkinrot. http://pumpkinrot.blogspot.com/ So why start a thread for him? Well, right now, he's taking a week off to get up to speed on his props. This is an excellent moment to not...

    Yay! I just discovered that I was featured again (my 4th time, I think) on Pumpkinrot in July! I am so proud of this! It's such on honor! http://pumpkinrot.blogspot.ca/2014/07/mockingbird-drive.html

    Hey folks - this is my first post and I'm looking for opinions. I recently acquired the DVD "Ghostly Apparitions" by AtmosfearFX. On the Blog section of their site is a description of how to project the image onto a transparent fabric to create a Pepper's Ghost-type of effect. I'm curious if...

    I'm a huge fan of Pumpkinrots work and i wanted to make something inspired by his props. The first thing that came to my mind was groundbreaker but i wasn't very interested. I decide to make a corpse scarecrow. Just a regular corpse cut off at the pelvis and surrounded by a bunch of sticks...
