My Celeste Jack-O-Lanterns

by Matthew Thompson

Every year I carve a gaming-themed Jack-O-Lantern for Halloween. Sometimes this process goes swimmingly. And sometimes… it does not. Last night things did not go as planned. Audibles had to be called. But I set out to carve a pumpkin based on the wonderful game Celestewhich you should really play if you haven’t – and I accomplished that, so I’ll take it!

What I ended up with was the above pair of Celeste-themed Jack-O-Lanterns. The left one is based on one of the character portraits of protagonist Madeline from the game’s dialogue boxes. On the right is one based on Celeste’s title screen logo. I have posted screenshots of both inspirations below.

While I had something a bit more ambitious in mind when I started, I’m still pretty happy with how these two carvings turned out. I hope you guys enjoy them as well. I have posted links to my Jack-O-Lanterns from previous years below for any new followers who may have missed them the first time around. As always, thanks for reading and checking out the pictures!
