A Pumpkin Homage to The Exile: page 5

So I thought it might be kind of funny to carve Jamie Fraser’s naked behind (from the infamous page 5 of The Exile) into a pumpkin. Oh boy, was I right. I can’t help but giggle uncontrollably each time I look at it. My hubs even agrees that it’s hysterical.

 Jamie’s bottom glowing like a beacon in the night. What on earth will the neighbors think?! ;)

  1. My love for you knows no bounds! Oh my god woman, this is epic on a scale of things that make people do a double take. You will have to post a picture to Greggo.

  2. Oh, wow. I’m flabbergasted that you actually thought of this, and then carried out such a flawless execution! *LOVE!* It’s really too bad that the pumpkin is made of mere flesh, and will in time turn into wrinkly Jaime butt.

  3. Holy mother of god on high. This is the SINGLE MOST AMAZING pumpkin I have EVER seen!! And I thought the Edward Cullen pumpkin carving stencils were cool!!!!!

    1. I think the whole thing took a little over an hour. I used a kitchen knife and one of those tiny orange mini-saws from a pumpkin carving kit from Target. I sat outside with my pups, free-handed the design on the pumpkin and went for it. Trust me, I did not expect it to turn out so well!

    1. too funny!

      also loved the comment from Aimee “wrinkly Jamie butt”

      and Kirsten on compuserve, “Why do I keep looking for the sun dial like shadow?

      Your pumpkin is fantastic.

  4. This is just too much fun! I know your house will be the most popular place in the neighborhood to visit this Halloween.[G] What a talent – you as the artist, and [cough]your subject! Seriously, you are amazing!

  5. So… now all we need is the wedding night pic.
    On second thought, the neighbors may have a really big problem with that one! Seriously, though, what can I say? You have made my day!

    1. Thank you for the link, I really am thrilled that other people are getting such a kick out of it :) I would like to join the community over at Compuserve if I ever get the time to venture out!

      1. And we would love to have you join us on Compuserve! Diana likes to hear from her readers and fans, and we’re always happy to welcome new people there.

  6. Absolutely DEEE lightful! LOL! I wish I’d thought of it myself! The way the candlelight plays on the “moons” are wonderful!

  7. This picture would make a perfect notecard. Is there any possibility that you will create notecards out of the Pumpkin Homage to The Exile? I am ready to place my order!

  8. Hey, there! How about an update on the Great Pumpkin! So how much did your neighbors love Jamie? [G] Dying to know what they thought about Jamie in all his glory!

    1. Everyone loved Jamie and his naked behind!!!It was nicknamed my “bum-pkin” ;) But unfortunately he didn’t make it to Halloween (On the bright side, it did solve the dilemma of whether or not I should have it out when the kids were trick-or-treating!). He started shrinking and curling up and I considered posting a photo…but I figured it would be best if we all just remembered him in his prime :)

  9. I also have just finished the Outlander series. I keep searching for a book that will fill the hole! I happened across a book called Into the Wilderness by Sara Donati. It is also a series, just so happens that a review written by a reader was also a Gabaldon fan. I just downloaded book due to review and to my surprise on page 2, there is a review written by Diana herself! How exciting! She loved the book! Just wanted to let you know that there is hope. Perhaps a book that will fill the void until Jamie and Claire return!

    1. Hi Christina! I bought Into the Wilderness a few months ago and have been saving it until the serious withdrawal sets in :) Stop back by and let me know what you think about it when you’re finished!

  10. You’ll be delighted to know that Diana gave this pumpkin a wonderful mention when discussing the graphic novel at a fundraising event in Flagstaff in March, 2011. Upon hearing about it from DG’s own lips, I had to check it out. It’s as grand and glorious as Herself said that it was. Brava for the Samhain bum extraordinaire.

  11. I just stumbled across this picture and OMG, you are my new hero!!! I shared it with some friends on FB (as a link to your post, of course) and everyone agrees that it’s the single greatest pumpkin ever. Kudos!!!

  12. Wow that is an ace carving, you will have to take up sculpting can just see it in wood pottery or bronze ….. mmmmm want to rub those buttocks
