Swiping through there's some real variety. Some entries have gone for spooky themes like vampires or a FrankenPercy with real bolts, while others have gone for more traditional Percy's. We just love the pink pumpkin!

One entrant even chose to create a chef Percy and the carving is so slick and neat!
