2000 - Charizard


Charizard - This makes a great pumpkin!

Use a really big pumpkin to make the best of this pattern. I got an incredible response from this pattern. Warning: The arms wilt quickly, so carve this on Halloween or at the earliest, the night before. I carved this one to early and had to use toothpicks to support the arms.
