Moustache Mayhem

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.
Welcome to Mr. Moustache 2013!
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.

At first I thought I was a Scoundrel girl, but that changed over the course of the evening.

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
