DC Comics' Joker Grins With Life From Pumpkin Sculpture

October 31, 2012

It's Halloween and nothing would be scarier than coming face to face with the Clown Prince of Crime and Batman's arch-nemesis in DC Comics since 1940, the Joker. But what if it was a pumpkin carved like the Joker? Yahoo! Movies was on hand to capture sculptor Andy Bergholtz as he carved the face of the Joker in one eight-hour stretch, and you can see the entire process in a 2-minute time-lapse video above and a close-up, detailed image below.

Bergholtz said he used traditional clay sculpting tools to carve down the pumpkin and glued pieces he carved out back on for the hair. He was commissioned to carve the Joker to help celebrate DC Comics' Super-Villains program. Fans were asked to choose the Ultimate Super-Villain Team, and, of course, Joker was selected the top "Wild-Card" with 79% of the vote.
