I’ve always enjoyed carving pumpkins for Halloween but I haven’t actually done that since University with my two crazy room mates. I was excited when my boyfriend came home yesterday with this nifty little kit for carving our hand-picked pumpkin we grabbed last weekend on a farm in Goderich.
Tonight’s the night! So…I’ve been scouring the internet looking for cool pumpkin ideas hoping there’s a cool rock ‘n roll idea somewhere… I can’t believe what I found a long the way…
That right there is a 374 lb pumpkin called ‘Trumpkin’ painted by Jeanette Paras. She has been painting pumpkins like celebrities and other well known people for almost thirty years. She “pumpkinizes” whoever is in the media / news at the time.
Last year, it was a 384 lb Kim Jong Un.
Other favourites include:
While ever year you can find these pumpkins on display on her lawn in Dublin, Ohio, Paras doesn’t sell them. It’s all just for fun!
I don’t think I can compete…but here’s hoping we figure out eyes and a mouth tonight ha ha!
