Bearhug! sent in the below video. Women who have a mustache that only shows up when using a camera are a common problem. So watch out for them- you never know when the girl of your dreams may have a secret stache. Hence her being the girl of your dreams.
Now you can have a stache for your wrist. Slapstaches combine the radical design of a mustache with the awesome functionality of a slap bracelet. Pretend it is still the 1990s and get your own Slapstache here: http://www.indiegogo.com/slapstache
Prices start at just $5, and there are several attractive package options if one just isn’t enough.
Any regular reader would know that I love to insinuate that the moustache makes the man. While I do this in (partial) jest, TBWA shows us that in some cases, this is absolute fact. (The following images are their property, and were found via Flavorwire)

Moustaches within moustaches within… a very neat blog.
Ever wondered what it would look like if your dedication to your facial hair paid off and you could grow a sentient copy of yourself out of your upper lip?
Me neither, but someone did.
For your whimsical enjoyment I’ve created a PDF of printable mustaches that you can print at your own convenience. It features 9 iconic staches, including my favorite, “The STACHIST.” This is a quick and easy low-fi way make fake mustaches without having to order any online. Enjoy.
I don’t know why mustaches and bikes go so well together. You thought that mustaches were only good for giving rides? Well, they also enjoy taking rides. On bikes, that is.
This is a poster that artist Marc Johns did for Lap the Lough, a 150km (~93 mile) lap around Lough Neagh, in Northern Ireland. It was printed on the event’s t-shirts and unfortunately is not for sale on the site anymore. The event was held August 29th, 2010, the day before “Bank Holiday,” whatever the hell that is. (We’re a little late to the press on this one. But it seems to be an annual event, so you can catch it next year.)
And here’s an example of one of the mustachioed riders:
In case you’re ever out in the field and need to identify all the different “typestaches” you may encounter, here is a handy Field Guide to Typestaches. Artist Tor Weeks created this poster which is essentially a collection the ever-so-fun curly brace character, in an assortment of different fonts, orientated to look like a mustache. Mine is most similar to Mr. Copperplate.
I do. I really do. Here’s a nice little mustache graphic for you on Friday. Put it on your MySpace page or wherever. Print it and mail it to your mother.
Photographer Dave Mead photographed the competitors of the 2009 World Beard and Mustache Competition. His prints are currently on display at Chelsea Market in New York under the title of “Magnificent Specimens.” And that they are! If you can’t make it to NY you can buy some of the prints for $350 or just view them online. (I suppose for $350 you could buy a plane ticket to New York…)
The portraits are very well composed. Besides finely waxed and sculpted facial hair, they make use of detailed costumes that are fitting to each ‘stache. Check ‘em out.
