The decision to go with the orange and black color combination for the Evil Pumpkin was not the only option considered.
As a motorsports enthusiast and Formula 1 fan, I have a strong admiration for the Gulf Racing livery, which features distinctive shades of blue and orange. It was a serious contender for the Evil Pumpkin's color scheme, paying homage to the iconic Gulf Porsche 917K, one of my all-time favorite race cars.
Although the ultimate decision was made to use the orange and black color scheme to emphasize the Evil Pumpkin's ominous appearance, my love for motorsports and striking liveries remains evident.
Therefore, I have decided to introduce the orange and blue color scheme as a standard offering for the Evil Pumpkin, providing an option for those who appreciate the Gulf Racing livery's beauty.
