Looks like we got ourselves a pumpkin challenge.
Name those horror movies anyone?
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.

Found a lovely group of Elephants with babies and a new born. Lovely creatures but then the big elephant became protective and came to investigate us…All took place in the lovely Shamwari resort in South Africa

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.

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