or what time, patience, and puberty brought forth. 
Woah that sounds creepy
Mustaches are acceptable!
Extra points for fancy beard art.


Alas I cannot grow a beard myself, instead I will begin by posting a pic of this fellow.
My human companion and his beginner beard. 
Let's put some water on that and watch it grow.

Beards of all sizes, shape, and color allowed. Down with beard hate!

    I don't have pictures, and you won't get any. Mostly because I hate having cameras pointed at me. Not worried about my soul, I already sold most of that off for power and glory. Still waiting for the power and glory...

    But I have my winter beard armed and ready. And this time ... no shaving it off in the middle of winter, wherein immediatly after I have to do outdoorsy work in -40 weather with a strong wind blowing. Like last time ¬_¬

    I hate you, I'm one of those guys who can't grow a beard. I have a moustache but it's virtually invisible because it's a thin smattering of blonde hair. Thanks for that!

    There there. One day, you too will grow a beard and know what it feels like to be shaggy like bear.

    I am banned from shaving off my facial hair, mainly because I look about 12 without when cleave shaven. 

    Had a job once doing Chemical Cleaning that required nothing beyong a mustache, so that the facial hair did not tamper with the seal of your respirator/SCBA. It sucked...

    Well you lot.  

    November is upon us.  Set down that turkey leg and work on something more important. 
    Some of you may be participating in Movember http://us.movember.com/
    Others may be believers in Noshemberhttp://www.noshember.com/pages/home.php

    Perhaps you're just lazy, that's okay too. 
    We celebrate laziness when it comes to facial hair
     (unless it's a godawful neck beard and then for the love of all that is holy shave that beast)


    To foster a sense of community, I'm willing to spice things up by offering 
    50 amazingly shiny credits 
    to the best beard/mustache posted here during the month of November.
     Prize to be awarded at the end of the month.

    Here is some inspiration. Now get growing.

    DISCLAIMER: Beard/Mustache contest is done in a spirit of general kinship and friendliness. Offerer assumes purchasing credits for an individual is acceptable, if not she will strike the offer and instead offer a hand drawn portrait of a goose to winner. This is not, I repeat, not a cunning ploy to see your beautiful bearded and mustached faces, or is it? I understand if you hate terms like 'movember' or 'noshember', they, much like a beard, grow on you over time.
     yes, sir.

    Oh @Sybilla I cannot wait!

    This reminds me:
    Addendum:

    For those ladies, and men who cannot grow facial hair, you may also attempt to swoop the prize by constructing a beard or mustache out of your choice of materials.  HOWEVER it must be truly glorious to attempt to claw its way to the top.
     yes, sir.

    My camera phone sucks as I'm not actually a red tinged, out of focus being. This is how I wear my beard probly 90% of the time though, switching to goatee once in a blue moon.

    Time to make dwarven/viking helm and beard combo and drop my scarf project (the scarf is going to look like Loki's scarf in Thor, not the one from the Avengers)

    Now, @Jozlyn, is this meant to be specifically beards/moustaches grown entirely during the month of November, or is preexisting facial hair covered?
  • JozlynJozlyn out of here.Member Posts: 1,086 @@ - Legendary Achaean
    @Eld. Pre-existing is fine but it had better look damned glorious by the end of the month. 
    Perhaps we should switch this to just beards as Tecton is hosting a marvelous movember contest.
     yes, sir.

    Eld's is pretty marvellous.
    The sweltering heat of the forge spills out across the land as the rumbling voice of Phaestus booms, "I want you to know, the Garden reaction to that one is: What?"
    The voice of Melantha, Goddess of the Seasons, echoes amid the rustle of leaves, "That's the censored version."
