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 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.
