Sculptor Turns Pumpkin Into The Joker [VIDEO]
For those who like their pumpkins with a touch of evil.
Sculptor Andy Bergholtz has only been using pumpkins as a canvas for his creativity for roughly a year after a fellow sculptor asked for his help carving pumpkins for Heidi Klum’s Halloween party in Las Vegas.
He was asked to carve The Joker pumpkin by DC Comics to celebrate their Super-Villains program which turns the spotlight on the baddest of the bad DC has to offer. The program allowed fans to vote online for their Ultimate Super-Villain Team which found the Clown Prince of Crime taking the appropriately titled “Wild Card” slot with a whopping 79% of the vote.
The entire process, using normal clay sculpting tools, took Bergholtz eight hours to complete, but thanks to the use of time-lapse video, we’re able to see the process unfold in about two minutes.
While pumpkin Joker may not be quite as freaky as Heath Ledger’s version in The Dark Knight, it has to be a close second.
Bergholtz also crafted another Batman nemisis for the event; former Gotham City Prosecutor, Harvey Dent, a.k.a. Two-Face.
