It's crazy how quickly 2 months goes by! A bunch of sweet little babies are now fully bearded monsters - give or take a few beard fail contestants! At the very bottom of this blog post is a form to vote for your favorites of 4 categories; Fullest Beard, Best Mustache, Beard Fail, and People's Choice. If your browser doesn't support the form at the end of this post, you can also vote here.
BEARD PARTY DETAILS:
On Monday, Nov. 3rd we'll meet at The Mule from 8-10pm. We've got space reserved and we'll all hang out, eat, drink and be merry. We'll annouce the results from the beard poll and award our victors their prizes.
As usual, we have amazing sponsors. I can't thank these businesses enough for participating in such a ridiculous competition!
Now! On to the beards!
"Mischievous space travel. Good bearding, fellas. See you next year. Thunder Up."
I read that text appears mirrored when viewed in outer space! Thanks for bearding with us, dude!
"Welp, its been a great couple of months. My beard and I have grown close and we’ve grown long. Thank’s for giving me an excuse to exile my razor! Beards to you my whiskery compadre’s, I had a hair of a time!"
I hate all those puns, but can't stop staring into your eyes.
"It's been a great time everyone, but there can only be one victor! Vote Redbeard for the win!!!"
If Reddest Beard was a category, you'd have this one in the bag! Glad you bearded with us again this year, Red Beard!
"My my, what an adventure. My beard has taken me far in the past two months. Good times and bad, and boy were there bad. It could have grown in a little thicker on the sides, but I'm happy with the chin coverage. Now that its over, do I shave it off? Or perhaps do I let the adventure continue at my own pace? I'm just not sure, only time will tell."
Shave? Shave. I hate the word as I hate hell, all razors, and aftershaves.
Great beard, but you've got one tiny straggler of a chin hair there.... Good bearding, Logan!
Hugh Jazz aka Kolsen McLaughlin
"Not sure if I'm happy or sad about this being the final week."
Kolsen, I honestly think your beard makes you look 5 years older. Which still makes you look 15 years younger than me.
Tricept and beard selfie in one! Kevin is donating to the beard competition! Thank you, Plan-It Landscape!!
Kaemon Patterson aka YUNG BABYSHOE
Kaemon, I don't know. Beard growing might not be the sport for you... BUT you're a champ in my book!
If you win 4 years in a row, I will cancel this competition.
Salt 'n' peppa style! Thanks for bearding with us Jer-bear. Hope to see you at the party!
Thanks to JD, OK Screenprinting will be donating a few t-shirts to the winners! Thanks, dude!
For your nightmares.
"Got trimmed up and lost the stash. Thanks to guys and gal at lake side barber for the fresh do and style."
Lakeside is great! Lookin' sharp! David's company, One Off Designs, is donating some wicked metal forged items to the winners! Thanks, Davey!
I can't believe this happened. Is this real life? Did Caleb Arter really grow a full beard? Wow. There's a tear in my beard!
Blue 7 is also sponsoring the contest, thanks dude! We always appreciate your support!
Bryan & Solomon Matthews
"It's the Final Countdown! I really feel like this is a good beard picture. This beard is the fullest of all the contestants and my son is the cutest baby of all time."
I feel like we've really grown as a family over the last two months. Hope to see you at the party!
"The Finish Line: As the shirt says, I grew a beard. This is my fourth go 'round and this year has been the most fun. I've had a blast getting to know my fellow beardos through the blog posts and hope everyone comes back for more beardy awesomeness next year. If any of you want to continue your beardy ways, join me in the United Way of Norman's annual No Shave November; you can either start from scratch or keep rocking your T&L beard. You can get all the deets at United Way Norman"
Most benevolent beard award goes to.... Brian Pelts! You're a beast, dude! Helluva beard.
Dude, I bet you're fighting girls away like mad! You've got a naturally grown legit 1970s-ass-kickin-black-man-gangster-beard I've ever seen! Glad you stuck it out all 2 months!
"Final entry. It was great fun. Already looking forward to next year."
All you need to look forward to is The Mule next Monday! Thanks to Andy and Blue Sage Studios for donating some one-of-a-kind, glass blown, shaving dishes!! Wow!
See you all next Monday with the results!
