Death Star Pumpkins

It’s coming up to that time of year again and the pumpkins are ripe and ready to be carved in to a myriad of different forms. However, one of our favorite Halloween sights is what Star Wars fans are bound, born and begging to do – to create their very own Death Star Pumpkin.

They come with varying degrees of success of course because the Death Star is not an easy shape to carve in to the shell of the gourd-like squash of the genus Cucurbita. Yet the ones we feature here are excellent attempts. Let your imagination run, dim the lights – and you are in a galaxy far far away.

Kuriositas would like to thanks Flickr Users Crash n Donna, jeff ramone and Dafaba for their kind permission for us to show you their pictures on Kuriositas.  Please visit their photostreams.
