Watch a Pumpkin Turned Into a Progressive Jack-Flo-Lantern (Video)

Love her or hate her... Flo, Progressive's retro, red-mouthed, insurance-loving, customer-service rep is one of the most easily identified nonreptilian spokespeople on television these days.

So it's only natural that people would want to dress like her on Halloween -- right? Unfortunately, there are actually costumes all over Etsy that feature Flo's trademark "I heart insurance" badges.

And, in case you don't feel like you give the auto insurance company enough of your hard-earned cash, Progressive has an "official" costume for only $24.99, complete with a "dress like Flo" contest.

But just in case you want to get one more year from your "gecko" costume, we have another Flo-related Halloween option for you -- an awesome 3-D pumpkin carving!
