With Halloween just around the corner, this week’s jigsaw puzzle of the day is the aptly titled Friends on Halloween. Autumn colors, spooky decorations, and trick-or-treaters are all themes invoked, sure to get you in the mood for the upcoming holiday. Take a break from the routine and put together a whimsical puzzle to celebrate the season.
This puzzle by Sunsout features the artwork of Doug Laird. In the distance there’s a beautiful home. Light pours from the window and smoke drifts out of the chimney. The yard is decorated to the nines with floating bats, a skeleton hung from a gnarled tree, and brightly lit jack-o-lanterns. Their ghoulish faces leer at passersby. In the foreground, a black cat on a fencepost arches his back- an iconic Halloween image. The trick-or-treaters are dressed in an array of costumes, eager to carry away their haul of candy in plastic pumpkin buckets. Even the dog gets in on the act.
This beautifully composed image will leave you feeling nostalgic for your childhood, prepare you for the little ghosts and ghouls to come knocking at your door, and have you pulling out decorations and carving pumpkins of your own. The combination of light and shadow creates interesting variations in the picture.
With 1000 pieces, Friends on Halloween will keep you entertained for hours. There’s enough pieces to present a challenge for even the most seasoned puzzler, and enough variety to keep you interested. For an even more enjoyable evening, invite your friends over on Halloween to join in the fun.
