The winner will receive all three prizes:

What do you mean, “Sherlock Holmes inspired”?
Interpret this how you like! Is it a sugar pumpkin with I O U carved in it, a la Sherlock’s Jim Moriarty? A great big pumpkin with the classic Sherlock Holmes silhouette? We want to see what you come up with!

Happy carving!
