Mustache Giaganticus


Don't even think of looking at what I made last week....


My old roommate and best friend, Melissa, left Chicago for LA on Wednesday. A few months ago, after seeing my mounted mustaches, she requested that I make her a large mustache. A huge mustache. The biggest possible stuffed and mounted mustache!


I presented it to her on Tuesday at her going away party, and suffice it to say - she loved it. It's made in pretty much the same way that I made the small mounted mustaches (hand sewn and painted), everything is just a lot bigger. It was kinda fun to work on such a large scale! It will hang proudly in her new apartment in LA, which she will share with two guys. I think they'll approve.
