Not only is the much-desired Tauntaun Sleeping Bag real, but you have the chance to be one of the first to sleep within the belly of the beast as part of a new Hallowe'en contest. It's all-win all-round, really.

ThinkGeek, the geniuses who originally thought up the Tauntaun Sleeping Bag as an April Fool, are offering one of the first honest-to-goodness sleeping bags to the winner of their Pumpkin Carving Template contest, which really is as simple as it sounds:

You design a geeky pumpkin template (PDF, Flickr upload, JPEG on your blog, scan embedded in Google doc, whatever) designed to be printed out onto 8.5x11" piece of paper. We only want your template, not something you bought from a site. Or stole from a child. That's rude.


As if the idea of people downloading your personal pumpkin carving ideas isn't cool enough, the addition of a carrot in the shape of being able to sleep inside a Tauntaun makes entering a necessity. Go here for your chance to enter.
