Nighttime Ninja Halloween Pumpkin and Costume!

Nighttime Ninja goes trick-or-treating. Found on Pinterest.
Here's someone's creative rendition of Nighttime Ninja into a Halloween pumpkin. Carving a design is also not too difficult. Draw the design on the pumpkin with a pencil. Cut the top of the pumpkin out, scoop out the seeds and fiber (clean off the seeds and toast them for a delicious treat). Then, carefully cut out the design with a sharp knife. For master pumpkin-carving, see David LaRochelle's website for samples and a video of how he does complex designs (he's the author of Moo, one of Ninja's favorite books).

If you're already planning to go trick-or-treating as Nighttime Ninja yourself you can easily create your own ninja costume: black pants, black shirt, and a dark kerchief around your head or balaclava (but remember, though, to add something reflective or light-colored (like a wide sash) for safety if you're going to be crossing streets).
