Ah, autumn! There’s nothing like a big handlebar mustache to get you thinking about pumpkin pie and hot cocoa. If you think I’m crazy after reading that, you must not know about Movember. Movember is a month-long campaign in which men grow mustaches (starting with a freshly shaven face) in support of men’s health. Men around the world use their facial hair to raise funds and bring awareness to diseases that affect men, such as prostate cancer. You can read all about it here: us.movember.com/about .
I’ve recently met a couple of guys that had fun mustaches, AND Movember was a theme suggested by a friend, so I felt inspired. Since I am unable to grow my own mustache (cross your fingers that this will always be the case!), I went out to my favorite prop supply store, Archie Mcphee’s. Of course, they had a variety of mustaches to choose from, so I picked the biggest, most obvious one.
The Movember theme was a last minute decision, since I had already decided on another theme suggestion. However, I figured that “holding onto fall” as a theme would work nicely, paired with “Movember”. So, given the abundance of beautiful fallen leaves, I was able to tackle this month’s theme(s) with a little more ease than in the past. And here are the results!
