At a pre-Halloween party sponsored by Midori, our acclaimed local pumpkin carver Hugh McMahon, who, it seems, can also apply his talent to other vegetables, produced a pumpkin likeness of Brooklyn Bridge Park fan Kim Kardashian.
Wall Street Journal Online: It took three hours to create the gourd, which weighed 125 pounds and stood three-and-a-half feet tall. “I did Heidi Klum a little quicker,” said Mr. McMahon, a Brooklyn Heights resident who this year alone has carved Anderson Cooper into a pumpkin and Susan Sarandon into a watermelon. “In [Kim’s] case, it’s getting the eyebrows right. They’re very pronounced. I hope it’s voluptuous. I think it is.”
