10 Badass Jack-O'-Lanterns Courtesy Of L.A.'s Coolest Cats!

Here in L.A., we sadly have to skip the free falling into raked leaves and haunted hayrides (unless palm fronds count and the Tinseltown tours throw some straw into those double-deckers!). Bummer, but there's one fall activity we can always count on: jazzing up jack-o'-lanterns! And while R29 always hosts an in-house carving contest, which you can look forward to later this month, here in L.A., we wanted to tap our own creative clique to craft DIYs for the upcoming holiday.
And boy did they deliver. Our local luminaries took cues from everything under the autumn sun from Peter Gabriel's "Sledgehammer" video and a Bob Marley doc to tarot cards and nail-art mania. Trust, these designs are ripe for the picking (and viewing!). Stomp through our R29 L.A. pumpkin patch, then plan a trip to Trader Joe's, stat.
