This year we also had a pumpkin that used a redd mohawk. I have also done one made from carrots, but I think that the sod mohawk is the quickest and easiest approach. Go for it if you want. I looks cool and it is easy.
When I am not carving pumpkins, I run a bulletproof vest company. BulletSafe Bulletproof Vests are the value leader in body armor. We are very popular with people like armored car operators and ATM repairmen.
