The World Beard and Moustache Championships

Here is one very unique championship that I found a month or so ago while on google. The World Beard and Moustache Championships is a biennial event (held every two years) with beard and mustache wearers from all over the world participating. It is held in a different country each time and has seventeen different categories to compete in.

I think the photos are really interesting and entertaining and I'm sure these men take great pride in being able to compete in this. It looks like the costume is just as important as the facial hair. I don't think I'll ever enter this event, but some of these are almost artwork.
