Came across this same article a while ago and was certain at first that it had to be fake. But no. I'm surprised it didn't become more common. The possibilities seem endless. :)
That is just too cool! And the face they created is so creepy. Come spring, I'll have to try growing some faces!DDSP!
OMG, that's freaky. Sort of Invasion of the Body Snatchers done with pumpkins instead of pods. Cool.
It really is creepy but clever. I imagine the same could be done with all gourds, as well as melons. Can you see maybe oranges or apples with little gremlin faces or something? Hah!!
