Gamers: Grow some facial hair

Next month is the month of 'Movember', when real men the world over spend 30 days growing the finest moustaches they can muster. It's to raise money for the prostate cancer charity and to raise awareness of men's health issues. So it's a great reason to entertain some bushy lip fur on your face. As if that in itself isn't reason enough to get a 'tache, Movember sponsor Rockstar Games is offering to immortalize the likeness of whoever grows the most awesome whiskers in next year's Red Dead Redemption. Yes, man gamer, you and your hairy face could appear in what is destined to be one of 2010's biggest games.

For more details, check out Rockstar's Movember event page and get yourself registered.

As you can see in the image below, our own Matt Cundy has been in serious training in the run up to Movember and has crafted this truly intimidating facial decoration. Anyone that can best his fuzzy beauty will win a lifetime of respect from us.

    Well, if it was a proper facial hair comp I'd be in but beards, full and manly beards is where it's at for the hirsute faced among us. I'm currently at the "polar explorer after three months on the ice" stage right now-I could definitely sculpt a truly awe inspiring 'tache should I really desire but I'm noping to have a "Santa before he went grey" by Xmas and a full blown "viking beserker beard" capable of supporting THREE real plaits! No pruning or clipping for me! Let the fuzz grow wild and free and fulsome! Birds and mice could nest in mine alredy and I just won't stop-not even for charity(beards are more important than that! Or even to be in RDR(which would be a buzz I'll admit-just not one worth ruining my "facialgrowth regime" for! Oddly,. however, my beard seems to be multi coloured! Everytjhing is in there:chestnet, white bits, cluey ones, black ones, dark chocolate brown hairs and even the odd blonde and gingerish ones! It's a magical technicolour dreambeard if you ask me. It's fantastic face fuzz fun and with winter coming soon it's hella warm into the bargain. Good to see Cuncdy's noble effort though-a little contrived for my taste but fine or an amatear! Keep it up and you could graduate to beards and the hall of real men in the future!

    Damn, I still need to wait a year or two before I can grow a full one.
