1,872-Pound Zombie Pumpkin Spills its Guts!

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

What would you do with a 1,872-pound pumpkin?

Sideshow sculptors and pumpkin extraordinaires Andy Bergholtz and Trevor Grove toured across the country to figure it out with Ray Villafane and his team of professional carvers.

Villafane Studios worked for three days to transform several of the world’s largest pumpkins into a masterpiece exhibit for New York’s Botanical Garden. The final gruesome scene featured a zombie rising from the ground, pulling a number of smaller pumpkin zombies attached to pumpkin vines.
