These are the carvers, sculptors, studio assistants, and messengers, who helped us make it all happen. Pictured left to right are @staceykeat @mustachebottleopener @jartista @raytion @mitchupitchu @sketch_93 @amayafyre @lenny_calvin_creations @monicamuller. Also a huge help this season, but not pictured are @estebandelvalle112 @rach2355 @vanessamercedesnyc @lizziebuckley @mermaidsuit @marchoftheant. And also our kind friends at @thegrandnationalbar @thebrooklynstar & @thewhiskeybrooklyn for all the hospitality. It’s such a pleasure getting to do what we love and work with people we care about.

  • We have some winners! We loved seeing all your pumpkins leading up to Halloween! There were so many great entries to #wearemaniacs that made it really difficult to pick the top few. But here’s our favorites: Michelangelo by @cosmicbackground88, Maleficent by @thiefjennyrue, & the zombie by @chefgoldblum. You guys rocked those gourds! Fantastic carvings, congrats!
    We will be in touch so we can send you guys some prizes!

  • "Day After Halloween" by Shel Silverstein. We hope you all had a great holiday yesterday! It always feels good to let out some fun, mischief, and fright.

Keep on tagging the pics of your pumpkin carvings with #WeAreManiacs because we will be picking a winner later today!

  • The Maniac HQ at @industrycitybk is cranking through the night. Halloween is finally here…

    They call us Maniac because we don’t sleep in October. We make sure we send out as many pumpkins as possible each season.

    Featured here is a pumpkin, based on a hand painted mural by @chrissoria and @marcmaniac, owners of Maniac Pumpkin Carvers. You can see the original mural and the pumpkin at Pasar Malam, in Williamsburg, BK.

    Also, can you guess which Artist Series pumpkin is in the background? It’s another past favorite we revisited for a special client this year.

  • Another pumpkin from our show @thecottoncandymachine. this sultry gourd is based on an original painting by @elizabethwinnel. Cotton Candy Machine has some beautiful original paintings of hers for sale in the gallery and on their website.
