October 30, 2011 Largest Jack-O-Lantern

from here.

No, it has nothing to do with Twilight or Batman or Star Wars ... thank god. If you've got the world's largest pumpkin (at 1, 818.5 pounds) on display, and your intentions are to carve something into that bad boy, then whatever it is better be worth it. Based on these images, it totally was worth it, as carving master Ray Villafane was brought into New York's Botanical Gardens yesterday to unleash a storm of blood-thirsty zombies on the king of all pumpkins. Yup, dude carved a chaotic scene into the almost 2,000-pound pumpkin, featuring a number of zombies cracking through the massive orange shell as if they were rising out of the ground from the dead. The details on this thing are extraordinary, right down to the pieces of pumpkin positioned to look as if they're flying through mid air as the zombies burst onto the scene.
wow. i mean. wow.

Incredibly, Ray has had no formal training and learnt his amazing craft purely by picking up a scalpel and having a go.

A bit like Jack the Ripper...?

Love the pumpkin.
Trying to decide whether pumpkin based zombies are more or less scary than flesh based ones.
More I think, as they will continue their vegetable life even down to the last cell, having no real brain to destroy.

And perhaps even be nano-zombies if you decided to blitz up their remains to make soup...?

Now there's an episode of Come Dine with Me I'd watch!
