Need Inspiration? The TruffleShufflers Have Created Some Retro 80′s Pumpkins To Die For!!!

This week, the TruffleShufflers have been racking their brains and seeking inspiration for that well-known Halloween dilemma, what the hell do I carve into my pumpkin???

Yes, for this week’s Friday Facebook competition, everyone at Truffle Towers was given their very own pumpkin with the brief that we had 2 days to design and create a character carving with a retro, 80’s spin.

Well, I must say the end results were very impressive! After a week of highly competitive talk and secretive Internet researching, the portly pumpkins have now been papped and released on our Facebook page!

The name of the game is to LIKE or comment on your favourite to help us decide which TruffleShuffler deserves the title of Pumpkin carving chief! The one with the most votes wins the TruffleShuffler a prize and whoever likes or comments on any pumpkin gets popped into a hat and we’ll randomly select one of you to win a special Halloween treat! You can enter here until 2pm today so please do get invovled!

So, here are the entries..

Pac-Man
Batman
Superman Logo
Spiderman
Mario (Super Mario Brothers, Nintendo)
Gene Simmons (KISS)
Jack (Nightmare Before Christmas)
Space Invaders
Elmo (Sesame Street)
The Count (Sesame street)
Chunk (The Goonies)
The Cheshire Cat
Batman Logo
Transformers Autobot

From Pac-Man to Mario, Transformers to Sesame St, a whole host of our favourite characters have been represented in pumpkin form!

Which is your favourite? xoxo

If TruffleShuffle did cameras………

Oh wait, we do! This is no ordinary bit of kit though. Built completely from LEGO bricks, it can’t be taken apart but bricks can be added to the top or bottom of the camera so you can dig out your old toy box and start putting those boxes of lego back into use. Perfect for us grown ups who can still smell those little plastics bricks as if we were ten years old, kids will obviously love it too making it perfect for their first foray into the world of photography. Let’s be clear, this is no toy though; it’s a full functioning 3 Megapixel digital camera, featuring a color 1.5” LCD screen.  It takes high quality photos with the built-in flash, fixed focus and digital zoom and  holds up to 80 photos at a time. Prepare for the nods of approval when you get this out and start snapping away…..

Lego Digital Camera £69.99

If your man ‘has the power,’  looks great in red and is the master of your universe, our excusive My Boyfriend is A Real He-Man T-Shirt from Fame and Fortune is an essential buy.
