Moustaches (mustaches sp.) are wonderful things, they can be groomed, grown wild or printed to novelty-size and applied in suspicious places. Many famous men (and some women) from history have owed their notoriety to their unmistakable moustaches, I wanted to join the ranks of these prestigious moustaches and decided to grown my own and then explore the uses I could do with my new face fur. Here are 10 unusual uses for moustaches.

After growing a full beard I shaved it into a rakish moustache, sure to tantalize even the most fickle mustachio aficionado. I soon noticed a change all around me, everywhere I went women were mesmerized and drawn to me, and men wanted duel in the streets.
Whoa, moustaches have a strange, powerful effect on people.

Don't take my word for it, here's some interesting trivia about just how awesome moustaches are:
  • In a standard deck of playing cards the King of Hearts is the only king without a moustache.
  • Scientific research, commissioned by the Guinness Brewing Company, found that the average mustachioed Guinness drinker traps a pint and a half of beer in their moustaches every year.
  • On average a man with a moustache touches it 760 time in a 24 hr day.
  • The oldest artifact portraying a moustache was from 300.BC
  • Burt Reynolds is widely considered the world's 'Manliest Man' (c.1972), in no small part to his full moustache.
  • Men with moustaches are better lovers.  Ok, I made that one up.
Trivia aside, moustaches have defined great men and their identity for centuries: Nietzsche, Dali, Einstein, Hulk Hogan...and now, me1! But, aside from looking devilishly handsome and irresistible, what else can you do with your moustache?

Follow along and learn 10 unusual uses for moustaches!

Step 1: disguise / villian / 80's trucker

Probably the single greatest attribute your moustache can lend you is the ability to disguise yourself: a novelty hat, a few odd garments and you have yourself an instant disguise.

Classic disguise:
Here we have a classic example of someone who would seamlessly blend into any background. Non-descriptive bland clothing, oversize hat, mirrored-shades and a moustache..who was that man? Maybe we'll never know.

Nothing makes you look more sinister than a devious moustache. I could probably trust this guy if it wasn't for the moustache, I mean look at him: Cape, top hat, cane, he could be a magaici....wait a minute. Is that a moustache? He went from possible magic-performer to the antagonist from just about every episode of Rocky and Bullwinkle.

80's cred:
If wearing white shutter-shades, high-boxed baseball caps and neon isn't enough, throw a moustache into the mix and *bam!*; automatic 80's credentials. You'll look so authentic Marty McFly wouldn't even question which time you're from. Make sure you make that awkward 80's face we all made back then, too, it really sells the look.
<p>wow you have way to much time on your hands!! But I like it it was entertaining:)</p>
<p>this was funny and really sexy too in a giggly way</p>
<p>what can I say, prfection</p>
<p>It's a proud day for a father when their daughter's moustache reaches full matcurity. </p>
<p>Reminds me of one of my fave Tick episodes (the good animated series, not the other one)</p><p>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b49ObOaEnA0</p>
<p>My husband has been sportin his epic moustache for over 10 years now, it has become part of his persona and people comment on it daily. There is so much love for his red handlebar lip accessory I decided to be him for halloween a few years ago, I think we both pull the look off don't you?</p>
<p>Excellent moustache..both of you!</p><p>Thanks for sharing. Enjoy the 3-month Pro membership.</p>
<p>Mighty Mighty Moustache!</p><p>it's a work in progress, but so far it manages to feed itself and drink plenty of fluids... </p><p>Once it's on a high protein diet I'll have to train it at the local gym</p>
<p>I think your moustache just challenged me to arm wrestle</p>
<p>Me rockin' the Stache.</p><p>I Mustache you a question. No wait. I think I'll mullet over and shave it for later!</p>
<p>The moustache is strong in this one...</p>
<p>This is a picture taken at fantasy fair, me in steampunk attire <a href="https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/7890_528551750547504_1588680464_n.jpg" rel="nofollow"> https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak...</a></p><p>and the second day together with my brother <a href="https://scontent-a-ams.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn1/t1/602886_528550540547625_10111856_n.jpg" rel="nofollow">https://scontent-a-ams.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn1/t...</a></p>
You have WAY too much time on your hands to make this instructable. But I like it!
Taking my Movember into December!
That's the kind of commitment that keeps the moustache movement strong!
During some live fire training.
Muuustache... Muuustache...
now the monkey is mesmerized and drawn in
wait... what movie is that from? I know its a recent disney/pixarish movie, but i can't put my finger on it......
Cloudy with a chance of meatballs.
My handlebar kinda got an ego and decided to jump off of my face.
I grew this one!
That's a pretty good moustache! You should get your friend in the background to join you in some facial fuzz.
I grew this outrageous moustache!
well done good sir<br>
don't you mean a pint and a half of BEER? it would be a rather spectacular feat to trap a bear in your moustache.
One of these got Jack Layton (Rest In Peace) elected and he was so popular his party became the Loyal Opposition for the first time in history.<br><br>Nickname: Trustache.
This is why &quot;The Spy&quot; is such a bad spy, he lacks the proper tools.
this is the most ridiculous instructable i have ever seen..... which give me even more ridiculous actions to go on..... thank you my friend! lol, very entertaining
im the one on the left XD the only decent pic had to be from a night out didn't it
Nice 'stache! This is a fun action shot, you get a digital patch and a 3-month Pro Membership! Way to go!
Sadly, most females don't get 'staches. But if I say that your post is cool, will my project (Wheels Hoodie) score better in the weekly challenge?<br><br>What? Oh. Well, it's a cool post anyway.<br><br>
While I'd like to stay anonymous, my mustache does not.
I approve! You've been patched!<br />
Are you calling me fat?
I know it might seem picky, but I love your typo in the second paragraph (and who knows, it might not be a typo!): &quot;...everywhere I went women were *memorized* and drawn to me...&quot;<br><br>I know it's supposed to be &quot;mesmerized&quot;, but it's really funny to imagine you memorizing the women being drawn to you. :) Hee!
Do you know the international gesture to ask if someone would like a mustache ride?<br>Step 1: hold the tips of your middle finger and thumb together and lick them so as to apply some moisture.<br>Step 2: Take the tips of those two fingers from your mouth to the center of your mustache and, in one smooth motion, wipe the saliva across your mustache (working from the center to the outside).<br>Step 3: Follow through with what you just promised to do.
That classic disguise is a classic Inspector Clouseau!
monsterlego,<br> did you have to put THAT picture up?!<br> <br> My name IS Steve!!<br> <br> AND I have beard AND mustache!<br> <br> I'm freakin' out, 'cause since I saw that movie, I've been terrified of monkeys!!<br> <br> AAAAAARRRRGGGHH!!!!
I moustache you a question: How did you come up with this list?! :D
Not sure what I could have done with this one but.....
nice moustache, you've been patched!<br />
I just realised, this used to remind me of a game my mate used to play when he was younger, <a href="http://www.weebls-stuff.com/games/Pluck+that+tash/">Pluck That Tash</a><br>
<a href="http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:11355">Handlebar moustache?</a>
LOL<br>There's a REASON why they have been called that nickname for years.
man you are right, mustaches do have strange powers over people. I'm 15 and i have a mustache and girls ask me about it and guys ask me if I'm gonna shave it. even an adult or two have talk to me about it(not my parents).
<br> Mustaches are a welcome mat for the nose... here's how!<br>
My hero. I want a moustache so bad.
