The first Trumpkin on our list, and possibly the most terrifying entry, is painted on the face of the pumpkin rather than carved. A tuft of real hair finishes off the eerie image. It was posted on Instagram by user @ktmod with the tasteful caption, “Grab ’em by the pumpkin.”

This Trumpkin by @lucymorey3 really captures The Donald’s natural speaking style: shouting hatefully.

This next Trumpkin by Instagram user @petermartindk takes a more classic approach, transforming the presidential candidate into a glowing jack-o-lantern. We dig the minimalist approach here.

Spotted this on the way home tonight #trumpkin

Instagram user @bubeemonkey may not be responsible for carving this smug-looking Trumpkin, but we’d like to thank them for sharing it with the world.

Reddit user Shazkitten decided to take a more photorealistic approach – a surprisingly detailed portrait, considering the medium. Interestingly, this Trumpkin was originally posted last Halloween. A sign of things to come?

Good effort @sainsburys. 🎃😂 #Trumpkin #Hilary #PresidentialDebate #Halloween

These Sainsbury’s pumpkins have an almost sculptural quality — they’re definitely not your average pumpkin carving. They both look a bit too happy, though, considering how bitter the election has gotten.

This painted masterpiece is the work of John Kettman of LaSalle, Illinois. Kettman has been painting portraits on pumpkins for about 6 years, but this autumn he took a political turn with his gourd art. In addition to his Trumpkin, he’s also created Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders pumpkins.

Ohio pumpkin artist Jennette Paras chooses someone in the news as her source of inspiration in a personal tradition dating back 25 years. This Halloween, she transformed a massive, 374-pound pumpkin into a likeness of Donald Trump – an effort that took six separate blond wigs attached to the gourd. Nearby, she’s placed a sign suggesting visitors “make pumpkins great again.”

This Trumpkin by @tangledinreverie really captures Trump’s luxurious, windswept locks.

David Jones’ Trumpkin takes a minimalist, pop-art approach that captures the candidate perfectly. Unlike some of the others on this list, he’s avoided using a wig to depict Trump’s famous hair, instead repurposing the inside of the pumpkin to form some kind of squash toupee.

This Trumpkin by @tiffany_marz takes an interesting new approach, with the outside of the pumpkin modified with what appears to be sculpted clay, rather than painted or carved.

Imgur user Fizzgig posted a more somber approach with this contemplative Trumpkin created by their mother.

Another creative new approach to the art of pumpkin decorating by @jduran1313 — collaged instead of painted, this time.

This superb Trumpkin is the work of master pumpkin carver Hugh McMahon. If you’d like to learn how to create your own pumpkin-based masterpiece, he walked HuffPost through his process in this fantastic tutorial.

If you’d like to revisit your favorite moments from the debates, look no further than Valerie Miller’s Trumpkin. We can almost hear this pumpkin shouting “Wrong!” at approaching trick-or-treaters.
