Face Shaped Watermelons

Ever wanted to cut open your own head?

This idea stems from the shaping of watermelons into cubes by placing it inside a plastic cube and letting it fill out inside.

Basically the person would take a mold of their face and send it in to the company. They then make a plastic mold of their face and make it into a container. They let the watermelon grow inside the container and... voila! A watermelon with your face on it!

Great for weddings, graduation, funerals (death mask verson)!

       I'm sure I read, a few years ago, about someone growing aubergines (eggplants) in transparent face-caricature-shaped molds. However, Googling didn't find it, so it may just have been the solvents.

       I think a watermelon's surface is too thick for this. Even the cubic ones aren't completely cubic.

       But what if both mold and watermelon are gigantic, [phundug]? Using some genet... err... selective breeding techniques we could produce ego-sized watermelons.

       Squares are kind of extreme - for shapes closer to round, I could see this working. Nice idea for the Effigies-R-Us chain of stores.

       I've done some bodycasting, headcasting. All very do-able.

       Sounds alot like Bonzai Kittens, but with melons.

       theleopard, are you having one of those write-only days?

       Whaddaya mean? I can't be expected to come up with brain-meltingly stupendous and impossibly fantastic ideas every single day, genius is tiring [Jutta]. I honestly thought you would have known that.

       Found it! See link. Baked!

       Man, now I've *really* seen everything.
