It’s Nut your Conventional Movember
[Inserts logo here, if I had one!]
A Majestic After
Introduction:For many men out there, growing facial hair for Movember may seem to be out of the question, especially for those that live in Asia. Some of us are either incapable of having majestic facial hair due to physical constraints of genetics, or some of us will not allow ourselves to do it because our egos stop us from looking like a hobo wannabe. There are also some of us who needs to have a clean shave to keep or get a job. We could only hope for other manly men on this planet to carry out our part of the Movember effort by growing their moustaches and beards twice as long.
Instead of participating in idleness, I’d thought: While we moustache-&-beardless men can’t grow facial hair to save ourselves, we could still look the part with some aid. Lo and behold, this nutty idea came about.
Process:I will not claim credit for the peanut butter idea; I saw a photo on Social Media the other day with a couple of YouTubers spreading the nutty spread all around their hair and faces and I jumped onto the visual idea and tried linking it to a context. I suppose in the end, I just wanted to put 1 kilogramme’s worth of oily goodness onto a model’s head, in a photostudio setting.While applying the spread onto the models’ head, I realise that I can put “Icing’s people’s head with Peanut Butter” into my already impressive CV, which also includes threading fruits onto a beanie, sticking Murukku’s onto people’s hair and poking holes into squash balls. The things I do for photography.One note of advice to any of you who would like to follow in these footsteps: Peanut butter and hazelnut spreads do melt under warm temperatures of the skin and tungsten lighting. You should snap away fast right after styling your faux beard and moustache. Pro tip: Licking off your “prop” at the end is probably a good idea.
