an introduction to Movember

{via}

Frocktober was all about raising awareness and funds to help beat ovarian cancer, while Movember is kind of like the boy equivalent - it's all about raising awareness and funds to help beat testicular and prostate cancer - and is usually done by growing a moustache through the month of November.

I have joined a team which was set up by the Head of Performing Arts (natch, darling) at my school, but as I am unable to be a 'Mo Bro', I have signed up as a Mo Sista - this requires less in the way of facial-hair-growing, but more in the way of flags, banners and frivolity. Maybe even bunting.

I may not have the natural ability to grow an actual moustache, but that's not the kind of thing that will stop me from joining in with the charity activities - no, siree! I'll just have to think outside the box a little.

My initial thoughts were along the lines of snazzy moustache hairclips, snazzy moustache shoe-clips, snazzy moustache brooches, snazzy moustache plushies, and of course:

CUPCAKES WITH MOUSTACHES ON!

But then I also saw this super cute tutorial from Tiffany Kelley, so I pretty much have to make these for all the Mo Sistas at work - but perhaps with some extra glitter or rhinestones... I'm a sucker for sparkly things.


And if the worst comes to the worst, I could always give myself a moustache manicure...



...or get me one of these babies...


Anyone care to join me in the funness that is Movember?
