Mo-vember Magic

It's that time of year...

Seeing as how I pulled out of the World Beard and Moustache Championships in Berlin this year, I thought I should at least mark the month of 'Mo-vember' - or what's left of it - by sporting a 'tache.

The only time I've ever gone the 'tache before, was on my 30th birthday. My flatmate at the time dared me to wear a moustache to go with a red fez she got me. It only lasted for an afternoon and no photographic evidence exists... but she seemed to enjoy the spectacle.

So for my second 'tache I thought I'd try to incorporate a few classic styles:

The "Chopper Reid"

Yeah, I know it's Eric Bana... but it's the best photo I could find.


The "80s Cricketer"

The "70s Porn Star"

And a touch of the "Noll" (not sure why... just 'cause)

And the result:

There's a man who knows how to wear a mo'.

Update: Within two minutes of arriving at cricket training tonight, I was called "Merv", "Chopper" and there was a 70s porn reference... I think I've achieved the desired 'Mo-vember' result.

The 'Merv' is definitely my fave. It is also universal. ie. can be imitated with a banana, sausage etc.

go all the way. no half measures. though there are people who say my beard is only a half measure even though I have not touched it with a razor for nearly thirty years.

I can't see the Merv at all actually, but that's a complement!

hmmm.
i reckon it looks a bit too angular at the minute.
stick with it for a bit.
once it starts to bush out and grow in it will look more natural.
