This October, our Ravens did Halloween a little differently 🎃
We challenged them to be inventive in carving pumpkins, squash, aubergines and there was even a coconut somewhere in there....
This year, our social events have taken a crazy turn. With the usual newbie night not being possible, we had to take a different approach.
We challenged our Ravens to carve whatever they could find in the supermarket (preferably pumpkins).
We know they're a creative bunch, but we didn't really anticipate seeing them using drills and soldering irons. But you know what they say... "when in home!"
Some of the designs were...questionable. 🥔
Others were artistic. 🎨
Some were modelled on their pups...we think? 🤔
and others were spooky! 👻
Liam's glowed in the dark, 🌟
while his husband modelled him stuck in rush hour traffic. 🧙
Brian, Kyle & James
This one had a pipe,
and this Raven just made a mess...👀
This Raven carved his Moroccan lantern a friend. 🤗
James's pumpkin got merry, 🥴
and this one thought it was easter. 🗿
James' had a scary grin, 👹
while Ruben's flew off into the wind. 🧹
We think this one was going time traveling...We're still not sure. ⏳
It was Jamie's first attempt of DIY️, ✂️
but the time did fly by 🦅
Eventually we had to choose our winners...🏆
Third place went to Chris, although unfortunately his water mellon was a little bit worse for wear by that point 👀.
James & Josh
Second place was because of creativity...Not a pumpkin in sight and all from the Tesco's reduction section
But the winning design was this piece of artwork...soon to be displayed at the Laing Art Gallery! Around the back next to the bus stop.
Everyone had fun, no fingers were lost, and the night ended with a game of never have I ever. It is safe to say that several Ravens never made it to O2 Touch training the next day.
