(link to Mustache March )
moustaches... Lomography is running a contest for best moustache photo to coincide with Mustache (yes, I spell it the other way) March. The deadline is March 31st.
So what is Mustache March all about?
Lets get things straight from the get go shall we. Mustache March is not a contest. As we point out in our manifesto,it's a cultural movement. For a month. Short-lived by cultural standards, Mustache March will burn brightly while it does. Like most cultural movements, there are "rules" governing who is part of the movement and who is not. The following are the rules and regulations that will govern Mustache March's short, but brilliant life span.
What better way to start a cultural movement than to embrace an unpopular social practice in attempt to raise money for charity? The Follicle Freedom Foundation was born of this idea.
Our goal is threefold. Revive a once-glorious grooming practice, humiliate ourselves in the process, and raise some cash for a worthy cause.
Next, we bring back the cape.
How can you beat that? In my world moustaches seem to be the new beard and my door is wide open welcoming them in. Often adorned by pervs, TV icons of days passed, and currently the follicly bored, it's nice to see some folks turn a patch of sleaze into a fund raising movement. A bit of dashing, humility, and philanthropy all rolled into one. And if those guys are serious about that cape business I really need to buy these guys a beer and make them my friends.
