I have never totally fallen in love with the moustache. My mom told me that as a baby, I would frequently freak out and cry when I saw a man with a crumb duster on his lip. Now, I am of the opinion that some people can pull it off quite well. So when a few of my friends asked if I was heading to the 2013 Mr. Moustache competition at DeRefter, I had to check it out.
The contest had two phases, online voting until March 23rd, and then live voting at the Mr. Moustache pageant. Click here to see a shot of all the contestants.
When we arrived, we were greeted with an array of lip rugs. I was so excited to spend most of the night finding my ‘stache personality.

|Chris became a Scoundrel, and I tried out the Bandit.|
|One of the contestants ordered some fries before the big show.|
|Our lovely bartender rocked the Casanova.|
|My teacher friends searched for their facial hair personalities.|
|We tried to look mysterious when rocking the red carpet.|
|Eventually many of the staches became Fu Man Chus.|
|Over the course of the night, I decided to create my own stache personality, the Freda.|
Around 9:40, it was time for the main event. Each of the contestants was introduced, and everyone voted for their new Mr. Moustache 2013.
|The men lined up to be introduced to the crowd.|
|They waited nervously to learn if they were to be Mr. Moustache 2013.|
The title was claimed by a French man named Tebow, who actually tebowed when he was crowned king of the upper lip hair.

Overall, it was a fun night, but I don’t think I have any desire to grow lip spinach anytime soon. It's too itchy. J
