Two styles are orange on the outside and black in the Jack-O’-Lanterns defined eyes, nose and mouth. The third style is black on the outside, with orange in the eyes, nose, and mouth. The “Jack-O’-Lantern 9in” (item #951954) includes an electrical corded light inside the item that, when plugged to an ac outlet, emits light through the facial feature openings.
