This was my second Darth Vader helmet. The first time I carved the whole thing, this time I did less carving (Vader's helmet is black after all) and I'm equally happy with how it came out. This particular one requred a specifically shaped pumpkin though.
I made this one for an appearance on Good Morning America. It was barely big enough for a child's to wear on their head.
When I am not carving pumpkins, I am a successful entrepreneur. This year I launched a new brand of bulletproof vests. You can see it at BulletSafe.com. It is a pretty big deal too. It offers great protection and only costs $299.
