The new T-1000 model isn't what anybody could have imagined

Mustaches and beards come in so many awesome shapes and sizes and perhaps the best place on earth to appreciate them is the World Beard and Moustache Championships. This year’s competition took recently place in Leogang, Austria and over 300 men from 20 different countries participated by displaying their finest facial hair in all its whiskery splendor before a panel of judges. “The first World Beard and Moustache Championship was held in 1990, and since then, this pageant for men has only continued to grow. A panel of skilled judges select what they deem to be the most attractive, original, and unusual beards in each of the three root categories—Moustache, Partial Beard, and Full Beard. Within these groups there are 18 sub-categories, including best goatee, best stubble, and a freestyle round where the men are judged based on their creativity and design. This event occurs every few years, in a different country each time, and was previously held in Norway in 2011, and Alaska in 2009.” Head over to Bored Panda for additional photos from the 2015 World Beard & Moustache Championships. Now that the latest international competition has come and gone the next opportunity to feast our eyes on fantastic face furniture will be the 2015 Just for Men National Beard and Moustache Championships, which takes place in Brooklyn, NY on November 7, 2015.
