This year the kids made pumpkin carving more complicated. They wanted them to actually look like something. I wasn't getting away with the standard jack o'lantern. The requests were Sleeping Beauty and Spiderman. Thankfully, I was able to track down a pattern to use for each of them. The Spider-man was a little more difficult since the pieces were so close together. I only ended up cutting out the eyes and the remaining I just dug out most of it, but left the inside intact for stability. I have to say that they resemble the characters I was trying to create.
