A loyal reader named Tony, who is a filmmaker based in Fayetteville, Arkansas, is working on a short film called “Stache Force One: The Case of the Stache Ripper.” He has launched a Kickstarter to try and raise some funds for the project, and you can donate here.
He describes the plot of the short: “The film is about mustache detectives hunting down the deadly Stache Ripper, who is threatening a community by stealing every mustache off of its citizens.”
Stache on, Tony. And stay away from the Stache Ripper.
That’s straight up intimidation, that’s what that is. Tom Selleck, you’re on notice.
Well too bad- you can’t.
But you sure can help Lord Likely put on all sorts of mustachioed personas in “Lord Likely’s Extra-Ordinary Inter-Active Mustache-O-Rama”
In this wonderful (family-chaos-escaping) nugget of internet fun, one is able to adorn this stylish gent with any of 36 mustaches. Each one is cleverly named, ranging from the “Fu-Man Chew” and “The Damned Frenchman” to the much more unique “Strumpet’s Delight” and “The Whore Beater.”
Last year we gave you some ideas Halloween costumes involving mustaches. Here’s this year’s picks, a little late but still before the big day:
It’s been less than two months since Mexico’s bicentennial. Why not keep the party going by being Pancho Villa for Halloween? In addition to un gran bigote, all you need is a sombrero, a pancho and some no-nonsense bullets strapped across you chest.
“Stay classy, San Diego!” Who can forget Will Ferrell’s iconic role as Ron Burgundy? This Halloween, you can re-live the grandeur of being a local television celebrity in the 70s. If you can’t find a maroon suit in your dad’s closet, try your local thrift store. The key to capturing this look (aside from the mustache) is getting the proper colored suit. Check the photo for a reference.
80s Detective (Sabotage)
Alá the Beastie Boys in their music video for Sabotage. This is the only mustache costume that I think is better with a fake mustache rather than a real one. The costume calls for a short-sleeve button-down shirt, neck tie and, of course, a pair of aviators. You get bonus points for having a walkie-talkie or some sort of retro communications device.
The cowboy is usually a bland costume. With a real mustache, however, you become an authentic and committed cowboy. So get yourself a real cowboy hat (I recommend a Stetson), a bandana, some shit-kickers and big-ass belt buckle. (Note: This costume won’t work in Texas—you’ll just look normal.)
Cheech (and Chong)
Have a friend with a beard? Do you like reefer? Be Cheech Marin of Cheech and Chong for Halloween. Cheech’s most famous wardrobe consists of a yellow wife-beater, red suspenders, a red beanie, baggie khakis and a caterpillar mustache. If you’re going for Chong, you’ll need a red bandana and a blue jean shirt. Bonus points for an oversized, novelty joint.
Game 4 of the World Series will be played on Halloween night. Here in San Francisco, there will undoubtedly be hundreds of people sporting fake beards and paying tribute to Brian Wilson. Hell, people dress up like him on any game day, let alone Halloween. Fear the beard. Go Giants!
The San Francisco beard and mustache contest is going on right now at Edinburgh Castle. Check it out!

One of the greatest aspects of running a blog is seeing the asinine stuff that people are searching for on the Internet. Just yesterday, we got hits for “Magnum P.I. Hawaiian Shirt,” “Culture of Burritos,” and a whopping nine for “Mustache Mirror.” That being said, it says something about a blog you when it is the second Google recommended site for “Evil People with Mustaches in the 1800′s.” I’m not sure what in fact it says, but I will take it.
Evil people have had mustaches, yes. Hitler. Stalin. Saddam. Pretty much any evil person you can think of probably had a mustache. But the fact that people are searching specifically for evil people from the 1800′s really raises the stakes.
Stachist.com is the second best place to get this information, and the fact that we are calling for your help means that evil people with mustaches from the 1800′s is a topic that there just isn’t enough information on. So, please. Anyone that remembers the 1800′s, specifically someone with a mustache that you felt was truly evil, let your voice be heard.
There appears to be some confusion about what exactly a handle bar mustache is. Is it a mustache that is long on the sides that you wax into little curls or is it an up-side-down horseshoe (also known as a horseshoe mustache) that extends straight down from the end of the lips to the chin? I’ve heard people refer to both styles as being handlebars. If that’s the case, then “handlebar” isn’t too descriptive; it could be used to describe almost any type of mustache.

Remember when Monopoly was a board game? Nowadays it’s a game you play at McDonald’s, or in the case of Minnesota, the state lottery. At least you win actual money.
They’re utilizing Mr. Monopoly’s iconic, white mustache to promote the scratchers.
In a TV commercial spot, “[t]he white handlebar mustache usually seen on Mr. Monopoly finds its way onto game players growing their moneystaches.” In this case it’s a young blond woman growing a huge white stache.
They also have the mustache stuck onto mirrors in bars and restaurants.
I found a box of old Playboys at a garage sale this weekend and looking through them I found these retro magazine ads from the 70s selling Pinaud brand mustache wax by mail. I’ve actually used this wax before, it’s one of the more popular mustache waxes known better as Club Man. Each tube of wax comes with a little brush/comb.
Now that you’ve grown a moustache… make it the greatest!
A must for styling, grooming and controlling moustaches, sideburns and beards.
Halloween is just around the corner and a mustache enables you to make some great costumes. If you’ve been thinking about growing a mustache, Halloween is a great excuse to do it. Just grow one and you can decide later if you want to keep it. If you can’t or won’t grow a mustache, there are many fake mustaches from which to choose for your costume. But your Halloween costume would be so much better with a real mustache. Below are just a few ideas; if you think of more, add them in the comments. (photo credit jasonsherwin)
