Back in August, Marvin Gardens took you in a brief tour of the old dorm room of Edgar Allan Poe at the University of Virginia. Now, the macabre writer seems to be popping up in other places just in time for Halloween. Aside from the fact that he’s one of our favorite authors, we’re ecstatic that even today, Poe continues to inspire artists and designers alike. In a recent pumpkin carving contest for This Old House, his likeness was used as the muse for artist Melody M. Dallastown of Pennsylvania as she carved a portrait of him into a white pumpkin. How creative!
Marvin Gardens would like to know, what are your plans this Halloween? Leave a comment and tell us if you’re planning a haunted house for neighborhood kiddies, your own pumpkin-carving session at home or perhaps simply passing out candy to eager trick-or-treaters.
