Man creates 'testicle' pumpkins with fake pubic hair just in time for Halloween

As the spookiest weekend of the year approaches, strangeness is in the air. 

And with this comes some very odd Halloween inspired items and outfits, like testicle pumpkins. 

No, we didn’t stutter, these objects are very much real. 

Will Eades, 36, is the creator of BillyBallBags and has designed a unique gag gift ahead of Halloween. 

The gifts in question are pumpkins that resemble testicles and come complete with realistic finishes – including pubic hair. 

Will previously crafted a face mask that looked like a set of balls, so this isn’t out of character.

From Poulton-le-Fylde in Lancashire, Will has named the item ‘The Hairy Ballbag Pumpkin’. 

Understandably, the pumpkin gonads have received quite the reaction online… most of which is positive.

‘This is amazing! I think you should call it the Sack o’lantern,’ commented one fan.

‘People are either loving it or completely grossed out,’ Will said. ‘My products are always popular around Halloween with people dressing up, so I decided to make the Hairy Ballbag Pumpkin and show how I did it. 

‘The business gets a lot of love from like-minded people – this sense of humour is appreciated worldwide, it would seem.’

The pumpkins are not easy to make and take five days in total to finish.

To create his masterpiece, Will uses silicone, paint, pigments and solvent, as well as synthetic hairs and PLA filament to create the unique design. 

‘Initially it starts off with a 3D sculpt using ZBrush (a 3D sculpting program) adding texture and realistic bumps and creases,’ he explained.

‘Still within the 3D software, I create a mould – a negative of the pumpkin which is specifically designed to be 3D printed. 

‘I use the Creality CR10 3D printer for my designs. This particular set of prints took three days to print.

‘A clean-up process is needed to remove supports from the prints and a little bit of sanding to smooth off any rough edges. 

‘The prints are then ready to be held together and used for pouring skin safe liquid silicone into. The silicone is coloured with pigments and flocking powder to emulate a fleshy skin tone. 

He continues: ‘Once the silicone is cured it can be demoulded to reveal the silicone product. Again, a bit of clean-up is needed before giving it some layers of silicone paint. Red and green to help lift the details and highlight the veins. 

‘The final process is to individually punch hair into the silicone which is time consuming but is completely necessary to add the ultimate realism.’ 

The pumpkins cost £150 each and can be bought here.
