Pumpkin Surprise!

This year I invited my friend Jenny round to carve pumpkins with me.  Hers was a normal sized pumpkin and was well and truly shadowed by my 10kg beast.

Jenny - pumpkin carving extraordinaire (right) was carving the Corpse Bride!
 To prove how large and thick my pumpkin was I took this photo....

The core was so thick that there was barely any goo to scoop out with a spoon and I knew I wasn't going to be able to get the knife through the skin to even carve the pumpkin, so I cut off the thickest part of the innards and put it in a bowl, then made pumpkin risotto!

Drawing on the design, free hand

Crazy face and the Corpse Bride, side by side.
Jenny brought with her the best pumpkin carving equipment, ever!  She had tiny little saws which mean I could cut the spiral eyes without accidentally cutting them off. The first pumpkin I've made without having to staple gun it back together!

The final product! I think it looks a little New Orleans-like!
