Movember (No Shave November)



Have you guys heard of this thing called Movember? It's basically a fundraising campain where you grow a mustache to "raise funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer" (us.movember.com). I think it's awesome, but what about those who either, can't grow a mustache, or aren't comfortable with their facial hair growing abilities (like myself)? Well have I got a solution for you!

Many of you have seen my previous pattern for a mustache that I put up a while back, well now get ready for the new mustache of the season....

HorseShoe Mustache!

Bam!

Many famous people have sported these bad boys throughout the years, like Hulk Hogan, John Lenon, and Seth Rogen, and now, you too!!

Along with this bad boy comes these sweet sideburns that can be attached to glasses, you may have seen them on the Early November Giveaway I did a while back.

I know it may be a little late, but better then never, here's the pattern for the Horseshoe Mustache and Sideburns!
