This was a fun carving to do. I used a couple of pictures of Vader's helmet and then carved it from a particularly thick-skinned pumpkin. You can tell a pumpkin is going to have a thick skin if it is really heavy to pick up.
This design took me a little over an hour to complete using my giant assortment of power tools.
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.
