The head is about 2 1/2 feet tall, is more or less like a cardboard geodesic dome with a flat bottom. I mounted mine on a backpack frame, but you could also probably wear it over your own head somehow.

Just some of the pumpkin fans this afternoon at South Studios, New Row South, Dublin 8  where Alright Pumpkins brought up hundreds of ‘kins from Navan for your Halloween pleasure.

The winner of our competition to win their own body weight in pumpkins was

LouieLovesPumpkins: I demand my body weight in pumpkins for the following reason: I haven’t been able to get a pumpkin anywhere in Dublin and all the little trick or treaters will be lost without some scurry pumpkins to light up the path to my house. Plus I’m not too fat and I’m quite small so you won’t have to give me that many – win win.

Thanks all.

The patch is now closed but pumpkins remain bountiful at Alright Pumpkins’ farm
