Moustaches are pretty funny already but giant moustaches are even better, especially places they don't belong. I took some discount fabric and discarded cardboard to make giant moustache stick-em's, moustaches that can be attached anywhere, instantly transforming anything into instant moustache awesomeness!
I made a few really big moustaches to go on large billboards and advertisements around town, then made smaller ones from the scraps to go on smaller signs found at bus stops and malls.
Enough talk, let's moustache!
Step 1: Tools + Materials
- brown or black fabric
- rubber cement
- duct tape
Step 2: Make Moustaches
To make these stick-em's I cut the cardboard into rough rectangular shapes, then drew on moustache shapes.
Smear paste on opposite side of cardboard with moustache outline, then drape fabric over paste and let dry. If you apply a thin coat of cement it should take less than 3 minutes to dry, then cut out moustache shape along the outline drawn earlier.
Repeat for as many moustaches as you like (hint: more is always better).
Step 3: Indiscriminately 'stache
My travels took me all over the city, no one was safe from a random moustaching.
- Starbizzle - 'stache'd!
- Chinatown gateway lion - 'stache'd!
- Mall signage - 'stache'd!
- Real Estate Agent - 'stache'd!
- Metro advertizements - 'stache'd!
- Military pilot gear display figure - 'stache'd!
- High end menswear mannequin - 'stache'd!
Step 4: Continue Moustaching
- Oh yeah, I also moustache'd a giant Simon Cowell. Take that!
- I found a beautiful spray paint mural outside a Japanese restaurant, so I obviously 'stache'd it.
- Even a billboard model for a fashion store was powerless to stop a moustaching.
The moustache wants what the moustache wants; and the moustache wants to be all up in your face.
Step 5: In Closing
Whether large or small, bushy or sculpted, real or faux, applying moustaches to things is pretty fun.
I left behind me a wake of newly sprouted moustaches and a trail of confused onlookers. I even had few compliments about my own rakish moustache which I grew just to undertake this silly project; always a plus.
