My wife is a HUGE starwars fan (I know usually it is the husband who is the fanatic, but that is why I married her :!con_p_Laugh2: )
So since she puts up with my pumpkin habit I wanted to create a large Deathstar carving similar to the picture below. I want it to be much larger than a regular funkin/gemmy so I can use a regular pumpkin as Alderaan, the blown up planet.

Does anyone make a realistic looking extra large foam pumpkin the is more round than oblong?
I am thinking 3 feet round would be great, and i understand I will probably have to pay a good amount to get what I want :)

Why not Just go Real For both?
If you shade it and Not Cut the Circle Until ready it will last a good long while.
(Also Don't Gut it until your ready to display it)

Funkins Does have some Pretty large foam Pumpkins, But nothing I saw are Round. Like the Death Star. So I don't think that will really work.
