Moustaches for Movember

Facial hair can add style and personality to a face and if worn for several years, becomes an integral part of a person's identity.

There are an amazing variety of styles and types of moustache ranging from the smallest slimmest almost not there moustaches of Prince and Rhett Butler, through to the huge bushy moustaches of 1st world war generals.
Charlie Chaplin had a small neat square moustache which is instantly recognisable and great for a fancy dress character. The square seems to denote humour as the style was revived by Basil Fawlty and a sloppy version by Renee in Allo Allo, two other strong comedy characters.

Hercule Poirot spends an awful lot of time grooming his cleverly sculpted facial adornment and owns an array of tools to keep the moustache in top shape. Salvador Dali also had an ornate moustache with sides that completely defied gravity.
Other famous men instantly recognisable for their moustaches are Freddy Mercury, Frank Zappa, Jimi Hendrix, Max Wall and Tom Selleck.

For those of you who cannot grow their own, or need a temporary version to participate in a Movember event, then visit our website and choose an adhesive moustache in any style or colour. The moustaches are easy to stick on, comfortable to wear and will simply peel off at the end of the day.

Admiral Costumes are offering to donate 25p from every moustache purchased in November, either on line or from our store, to the Movember charity.
Movember is a charity with aims to support research and awareness of mens health, prostrate and testicular cancer.
