For the last three weeks now, I've told myself almost every night that I should carve the pumpkin I have sitting on the dusty corner of my living room table. The issue? I have no idea what cute little face I wanna implant on that sucker. So I did a little digging for some inspiration this morning, and now I can honestly say that I've found some of the most amazing and creative jack-o'-lanterns ever created. 

As in, some people have some fantastic pumpkin carving skills. 

Like, more fantastic than fantastic, actually. As in -- I hope to be nearly as good at something over the course of my lifetime as these pumpkin carving masters are at slicing and dicing a Halloween gourd. Seriously, there's a life-like horse, a VW bus -- even one that looks exactly like Miley Cyrus! Not only are there some serious skills displayed here but some really genius ideas.

Please, read on to see 10 jack-o'-lanterns that will blow your mind -- and hopefully provide you with some offbeat, creative and out-of-this-world inspiration for your own Halloween pumpkin carving.

Have you ever branched out of the standard smiling jack-o'-lantern?
