17 Pumpkin Carvings for Adults That Are Amazing Odes to Pop-Culture Icons

We've been carving pumpkins since we were, oh, 5 years old — so it's definitely gotten to that point that we're kinda over the same ol', same ol' jack-o'-lanterns. But that's not to say our pumpkin love doesn't run deep. We still love those beautiful gourds as much as we love binge-watching Hocus Pocus 50 times in a row. It's just that we've got this quiet yearning for a different kind of pumpkin-carving.

In the spirit of our pumpkin love and lust for new pumpkin adventures, we had our awesome design team put together elaborate pop-culture pumpkin-carving templates. Because there is no better way to bond with your creepy neighbors than sharing an obsession with Beyoncé and Doctor Who.
