My sister-in-law is all about the difficult pumpkins. Take a look:This viking took her about 6 hours to carve. The pumpkin she carved it on weighed over 30 pounds - it was a big one. I think he's fabulous. She decided to create Thor's hammer to go along with it:Who doesn't love the Ghostbusters?Then there is this. This pattern is called "If Tiffany Carved a Pumpkin", as in Tiffany lamps. There was no other way to display this but on an actual lamp, right?
Look at the close up. This took her 8 hours to carve.She rocks.
