<p>Costco Mellons are great! Used pumpkin carving knives&amp;!made it very realistic. Don't fret about dead ends/ remember brain looks like wavy finger noodles with jagged ends &amp; tails!</p>

Could you use a potato peeler or does it not work on watermelons.
To be honest, in my potato peeling history, I have used what I thought was a regular vegetable peeler. If it works similarly to a vegetable peeler though, it should work.
Now that is thinking outside the box. Great job!! <br>
coolest water melon, ... ever.
Add some watermellon or any red jello to the plate where serving and it'll work as blood, also this will keep it healthy by not adding too much sugar to the dish.
Great job!! very cool!! Awesome idea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Freaking AWESOME! <br>
