Check out our “Steampunk Punkin’”!
We accepted the local challenge of decorating a plastic pumpkin given to us by Radiance Endodontics in Venice Florida. This is the second year in a row that Radiance Endodontics has put on this contest. A big plastic pumpkin was delivered to each dental office that wanted to participate in this fun project.
The rule was to decorate the pumpkin as we pleased without puncturing it. We then had to take a picture of it and submit it for judging. The pictures of all of the decorated pumpkins are on the Facebook Page of Radiance Endodontics and the winner is determined by how many “likes” each pumpkin gets. The pumpkin with the most “likes” wins.
Last year we had submitted a Gators Pumpkin as Dr. Aygen is an alumni of The University of Florida.
This year we decided to kick it up a notch with going “Steampunk”, as Dr. Aygen is a huge “techie”!
Our clever submission took about 3 weeks for us to complete. We all took turns raiding our husband’s garages and toolboxes to come up with various nuts and bolts. A couple of our awesome lab partners also donated some temporary teeth, gears, and wires to our cause!
For those of you who are wondering what “Steampunk” is it is defined by Wikipedia is a “subgenre of science fiction or science fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery”.
