Justin Bieber carved out in Halloween pumpkin by Ashford builder Lee Rossiter
The likeness is plain spooky...
But a bricklayer has swapped his trowel for a carving knife to create this image of singing star Justin Bieber in a pumpkin.
As Halloween preparations get under way, Lee Rossiter is hoping to make us all Beliebers in his artistic skills.
Lee, of Speldhurst Close in Stanhope, Ashford sharpened his knife to create this series of unusual pumpkins.
The 37-year-old designed the unique version of the 19-year-old popstar in the seasonal candle holder.
He also created a witch, a werewolf, cartoon character Peppa Pig and long-haired fairy tale heroine Rapunzel.
Lee’s partner of 17 years, Kerry Bourne, revealed the more unusual pumpkins were made at the request of a friend’s children.
Gracie Fuller, eight, asked for Justin Bieber while her younger sisters Evie, four, wanted Rapunzel and Scarlett, three, requested Peppa Pig.
Kerry said: “He does the pumpkins every year and this year people messaged and asked if he wouldn’t mind doing them some.
"He still has a few to do for us, which go in the front garden for the trick or treaters.”

But not everyone has embraced the glorification of all things ghoulish and ghostly.
Members of Ashford Baptist Church say they are fearful that celebrating spooky monsters is having a negative effect on society.
While other youngsters will be wearing scary costumes and going trick or treating this evening, youngsters from the church will be singing in their pyjamas and learning about Jesus at a Light Party.
Heather Hale from the church said: “We don’t like our children emulating monsters, witches and other evil characters and there can be negative consequences of thinking evil is fun.”
The Light Party, for five to 11-year-olds, will take place between 5 and 7pm and activities on offer include games, crafts, stories, singing and learning about Jesus.

It comes as police urge people to stay safe tonight as they venture out for Halloween.
Hundreds of youngsters across the county will be dressing up as ghosts and ghouls and trick-or-treating in their area.
But police want revellers to act responsibly in a bid to crack down on anti-social behaviour at Halloween.
Police Sergeant Jim Walker of the Gravesham Community Safety Unit said: “While Halloween is a much-anticipated date for many people, others dread October 31.
“For more vulnerable residents, an unexpected knock on the door after dark can cause distress and anxiety.”
Residents are asked to look out for their neighbours - especially if they live alone or are elderly.
