According to their website, www.funkins.com, "FUN⋅KINS are synthetic pumpkins that are carefully crafted and painted by hand to look just like real pumpkins. They can be carved and lit to look like spooky works of art just like pumpkins. They are made hollow so there is no scooping of seeds and pumpkin guts necessary. And they never ever rot, so carvings last forever!"

So this is a carving on a synthetic pumpkin. I've used fake pumpkins for the last 5 years because I can't stand to see something I've spent 15+ hours on rot.

That doesn't look real, I mean it kinda looks like you edited a picture in photoshop  to make it look like that, could you please upload it in the light so I can see it without being light up? But that is a wicket funkin carving.

You should have added an "LOL" caption underneath.
