Paras Pumpkins: Because Carving is So Old School

paras pumpkins

When it comes to pumpkins, there’s a way to decorate a pumpkin and there’s a way to DECORATE a pumpkin. Jeanette Paras of Paras Pumpkins is known for the latter.

My darlings, this woman has put our pumpkin carving to shame.

Instead of carving a face into a little store bought pumpkin, Paras paints the faces of famous people onto ginormous pumpkins, some weighing over 350 lb.

Yes, you read correctly. Three hundred and fifty pound pumpkins.

The faces of Kim Jong Un, Lady Gaga, Steve Jobs, Kanye West, Miley Cyrus and even Betty White have been marvelously pumpkin-ized by Jeanette Paras.

Enjoy some of her creations below!

Favorite News Articles

Favorite Music

1. “Froot” by Marina and the Diamonds. Farewell, Electra Heart. I just love the ominous opera-like vocals and reference to Fellini’s La Dolce Vita. Definitely looking forward to her next album!

2. “Numb” by Nick Jonas. Can’t say I’m not digging his new R&B vibe.

3. “Runaway (U & I)” by Galantis. These guys have mastered the art of baby chipmunk voices.

4. Hellbent by Mystery Skulls ft. Snowblood. Even though I wasn’t that impressed by the album, I really love this pre-released track!

Favorite TV Episodes

1. New Girl “Dice.” I can’t even begin to imagine what Jess would be like on Tinder!

2. Castle “Clear and Present Danger.” Can I borrow that invisibility costume for a day?

3. Pretty Little Liars “#WeLoveYouToDeAth.” I love how laid back the cast was in their interviews. I especially love how they brought back all the dead characters for the questions!

4. Mindy Project “Crimes & Misdemeanors & Ex-BFs.” I can’t believe she pretended to break up with Danny to get her taxes done. What even.

Favorite YouTube Videos

1. Rhett & Link’s Good Mythical Morning, “Will It Cereal?” These guys get too excited about drinking the milk from the Skittles test.

2. Taylor Swift’s Diet Coke kitten commercial. She’s drowning in a sea of kitties!
