2009 WBMC Champions

If you’ve been reading my blog at all you know that WBMC stands for World Beard and Moustache Championships. With this post I am officially turning this blog into an outlet for world beard news. Where most blogs about beards just post pictures, I will actually let you know what is going on with them. I will however continue to post random little things I think are cool and personal adventures.

Anyways, with the 2011 WBMC coming up fast in May, I want to let you all know who the defending champions are. Some of these people will be defending their titles and others wont be able to make it. I have also learned that the hosting team gets to decide the categories and the rules for each. In my last post I defined all the categories for this years, they are the same as 2009 except apparently there is no Alaskan Whalers category. 

I will just go straight down the list. (These are just the 1st place winners)

I did it!

I just registered for the USA National Championships of Bearding.

I didn’t sign up for any of the other things like the brewery tour or amish dinner, I don’t really have the money for it.

Maybe I can sign up for them in the future?

I’m doing the freestyle category, I NEED TO THINK OF SOMETHING AWESOME!

Today was the Rhode Island competition.

The photo in the middle is the beginning of how I was going to style my beard (8 circles), but I started way too late and it’s getting too long to tame with a reasonable amount of wax, so I will really need to start working on the hairspray.

I ended up washing the beard out and just competing with the Moustache where I won. The Boston Beard Bureau swept the board! Aside from me winning, Tom Ward won Beard and Nicole Fisher won Freestyle and Best Overall.

It was a great day and we met tons of awesome people.
