One-week into the ‘Stache-Off ’08, and I’m already jealous of all the stachetastic fun the guys are having! *sigh* My sad string cheese faux-stache aside, the GOOD news is: we have competition progress for you! We decided to give the ‘Stache-Off its own events page, so you can easily keep track of your favorite stacheletes. Just in time to help you celebrate the kick-off of the Beijing Summer Games, we bring you the Official Electronic Art ‘Stache-Off ’08 Event Page.
“When I went to the Olympics, I had every intention of shaving the mustache off, but I realized I was getting so many comments about it – and everybody was talking about it – that I decided to keep it. “ – Mark Spitz
Here at Electronic Art, we’re a socially-aware bunch. And just to prove it, we’re supporting the 2008 Beijing Olympics with a little competition of our own – the E.A. ‘Stache-Off ‘08. On August 1st, the handsome men of Electronic Art will shorn themselves back to a natural, moustache-free state and let the growing begin (Guy Dillon has been granted exception in the shaving by the staff as he already has an admirable and stately mustache the likes of which should not be messed with). Each contestant will then grow his (or her? Uhhh … ) facial hair for a duration of 24 consecutive days. No Rogaine, Monoxidil or other hair growth supplements allowed. Random screening for such chemical enhancers will be performed throughout the competition and ‘dopers’ will be disqualified. Judging will be held on August 25th and winners announced by COB on that day. Photographs of the competition will be shared right here on our blog – don’t miss out. Postings will include pre-competition shots as well as interim progress shots and of course, the final judging shots. Winners of the following categories will be announced: change in appearance, style, presentation at judging, and of course the overall best moustache category. If you would like to participate in the E.A. ‘Stache-Off ’08, feel free to submit pre-competition and judging photos for consideration.
