Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na… Batstache!
Proof that mustaches are not just for porn stars, pimps and your mates slightly out of touch dad.
For ages I mistakenly thought that mustaches were a little out of place in the modern world and then, after seeing the below pictures, I realised that I was actually missing out on the fact that they are a whole lot of fun…who knew?
I kind of knew that beards were a big thing in certain circles (other than Lumberjacks and Wizards) as I got kind of into a few bands on the Beard-Core scene, and in all honesty I think beards are kind of cute. I have to say though, that I feel pleasantly surprised that mustaches seem to be getting a bit trendy (be-it in a bit of a humorous way).
I love the fact that consumerism seems to have grabbed hold of the hairy bits and marketed the heck out of it. You can get mustache paper clips (I actually own some of these), mustache cups, t-shirts – In fact, I am pretty sure that if you can think of it, (within reason) you could probably find a highly styalised image of a mustache on it. They are everywhere!
I have to confess that if men start popping up all over the place with sleazy 70′s porn star mustaches I will feel slightly disturbed. There is something very Caterpillar-like about those ones. I am more of a beard-lover, which probably explains my objection, but seriously, seeing something creepy crawly-like on someones face at any time other than ‘Movember’ (which I think is one of the best and funniest months of the year), is just a bit of a ‘no’ for me.
The 3 examples featured below though, are proof to me that mustaches can be kind of awesome. I love the fact that 2 of the guys have turned their facial hair into the bat symbol and the other into a question mark (which I have taken it upon myself to assume he was channeling some serious Riddler love). The first mustache belongs to Arturo Méndez and I think it is inspired.
In other mustache news: Having taken offence at Spiderman’s inability to produce facial hair, mustaches from all over New York have temporarily left the faces they currently reside on and have mounted an attack…things are looking a bit hairy for the wee fella (please excuse my terrible, terrible sense of humour).
What do you think of the mustaches below? Have you ever given your facial hair the superhero designer treatment? And if not, would you?
