Cool Stuff: Incredibly Detailed Pac-Man Pumpkins
These have to be some of the coolest carved pumpkins we’ve ever seen. David Adams decided to take ‘Sugar Pie pumpkins’ and carve them into Pac Man and two of the ghost that hunt the yellow inspired pizza. By far, the best part about the project are the ghosts and the level of detail he put into them. Notice on the bottom of them, he even had the pixels carved out. Incredible stuff, I find it even more amazing because I can barley cut out a face on my pumpkins.
After the jump, read how he did it and look at more pictures.

Pac Man, ghosts, pellets, and cherries. The Pac Man and ghosts are carved from Sugar Pie pumpkins. The Pac Man was carved on it side so I could retain that round shape. The pellets are just small gourd pumkins turned on their sides. The cherries are made from two crab apples painted red and some 8 guage wire. The pumpkins are mounted on dowels on a board. I used flourescent acrylics to paint the pumkins so they would glow when lit with a black light. Paint was applied with a home-made airbrush made from a paint canister/pen/dust-off canister. For scale, the Pac Man is approx. 10 inches tall.
