How to make the potato Darth maul

Finally, Star Wars will be back in movie theater
on March 16 in Japan!

I made a vegetable carving for the
cable TV last month.
It is one of the main characters of Episode1
...Darth maul!

I made with Sweet Potato this time.
This is the face.
I made the outline first,then I carve a nose, eyes,
a mouth, and a tattoo.


they are very small, therefore I need concentration.

Then I put the horns to the head with toothpicks.
I opened a mouth on purpose to show a tooth.

Then I make a hands referring to my hand.

carving a bofy.
I use 5 sweet potatos this time.

Actually, I made the last scene where he fought against
Obi-Wan Kenobi and an Qui-Gon Jinn with a movie as for one dish.

you can see the Qui-Gon's saber if you are a star wars fan :)

For his light saber, I painted a bamboo sticks by a red marker.

Looking forward to see the Darth Maul at movie theater!

the big screen again!

and I decided to go to the world biggest Star Wars event
"Star Wars Celebration 6" at orlando in This summer!

Actually, taking a long holiday is very difficult for me, in my situation.
My latest summer vacation was in 2008, I took four days off at that time.
my last travel in abroad was more than 10 years ago.. lol
therefore 1 week holiday is going to be very big decision for me.

But I just don' want to regret!!
This is going to be my first staying in United state.
I just Can't wait!
If you are also Star Wars fan...let's go for it!
Hope to see you at there :)
