Move over, Cthurkey, there’s a new tentacled foodstuff to haunt your meal.
Brought to us by master fruit-carver, Valeriano Fatica, the scary watermelon will call to you for a proper picnic. See how it’s done below.
Avocado stones are a nuisance. Not only are they fairly dangerous to remove, but they take up valuable space where more yummy avocado could go.
Avocado Stone Faces finds beauty in the cumbersome pit, transforming each one into beautiful art. Irish artist, Jan Campbell, carves these avocado stones by hand — transforming them into beautiful talismans. Hopefully, they can protect you from the dangers of avocado pit-removal.

Just in time for summer, and while Game of Thrones is still fresh in our noggins, here comes one of the greatest watermelon sculptures ever.
Brought to us by artist, Valeriano Fatica, the Watermelon Dragon emerges from its fruit-shell so convincingly, that it will surely be able to scare off the bravest of hobbit, or to just have a picnic with the Khaleesi. See more below.
Over the next few weeks, families will be heading to the nearest pumpkin patch, looking for the perfect large orange gourd to carve triangle eyes into. And somewhere, artist Shawn Feeney laughs. Using mostly root vegetables, gourds, and melons — which tend to have the best alternating textures and colors — Feeney gives these foods a personality, and creates incredibly lifelike and morbidly cute characters.
Of course, Feeney started to explore this talent with pumpkin carvings. Even using his mad skills to win the Food Network miniseries, Halloween Wars in 2011. Feeney also offers his services to teach fruit and vegetable carvings, and even takes on custom projects. Perhaps you can get him to help make your jack-o’-lanterns the coolest on the block.
