Oh my god, I can only imagine what the crowd is like at these events!?!? Also the vendors!! Wild.

u/NPG27 Sep 25 '22

I bet it smells surprisingly nice.

u/picklededoodah Sep 25 '22

I'll bet it does! Any serious beard-o takes really good care of it.

u/jumpup Sep 25 '22

though they hopefully don't have any open flames there or the smell isn't going to be as nice

u/2x4x93 Sep 25 '22

Very costly facial accessories

u/freddiemack1 Sep 25 '22

So is anyone going to talk about #5?

u/togocann49 Sep 25 '22

Ya mean werewolf? I’d like to see the straight shot with (what seems like) a hair tunnel to the mouth

u/duaneap Sep 25 '22

Wonder if he’s any good at basketball.

u/Opposite_Interest844 Sep 25 '22

Werewolves?

Guy he wearing a furries mak

u/Anaxamander57 Sep 25 '22

That's not a furry mask. That is very distinctively a Pup Hood. Slightly different.

u/Particular-Ad-3411 Sep 25 '22

How does he eat at restaurants, like that shit must feel goofy af cause now he’s just irl role playing a furry… I can’t just imagine a fist curling up and going through that gap

5

u/deadcats Sep 25 '22

lol, i assume it's done up just for the show. Same with the rest of the contestants (with the exception of maybe 2 and 7.)

u/Pecheuer Sep 25 '22

Furries are everywhere man, are you even surprised at this point?

u/Conscious-Parfait826 Sep 25 '22

Everywhere? Nervously checks under bed.

u/knoguera Sep 25 '22

It’s the stuff of nightmares.

u/PristineNoodles Sep 25 '22

Eldritch for real

9

u/Tounage Sep 25 '22

Is that chest hair real?

6

u/sowhat4 Sep 25 '22

No. It's some sort of rug or migrated mirkin. That line of demarcation between fur and skin is too sharp.

6

u/itsmyfirsttimegoeasy Sep 25 '22

What does one even say about that mess.

u/ShevanelFlip Sep 25 '22

He does some amazing stuff with his beard, I believe he's won my multiple times

u/The_Ok_Dimension1302 Sep 25 '22

Theres always a furry

u/Advance-Puzzleheaded Sep 25 '22

Lou Bega already covered it quite extensively

u/SideburnsG Sep 25 '22

I too, would like to hear more about #5

38

u/Bookssmellneat Sep 25 '22

No.7 looking low effort in this lineup.

11

u/The_Ok_Dimension1302 Sep 25 '22

Honestly. Number 4 Definitely has that feel that he should have been one of the dwarves in the hobbit movie. Or a Modern day D&D game and hes some Dwarven Pimp. just looks amazing

2

u/ImSynnx Sep 25 '22

Don't talk like that about Bono Vox

1

u/Bookssmellneat Sep 27 '22

Lol I thought that too. But even your avatar’s beard is more impressive than Bono’s.

1

u/ImSynnx Sep 27 '22

He was too busy doing songs and charity. He had no time to prepare properly

u/Gloomheart Sep 25 '22 edited Sep 25 '22

Some of these guys have been winners for YEARS and I recognized them immediately 🖤

3, 8, 9, and 10 are the OGs!

u/bruhmoment988672 Sep 25 '22

I know 3, he grew his beard out for years! One years he made it into an Easter basket!

u/ITCM4 Sep 25 '22

Half of these people are just Les Claypool.

u/1hipG33K Sep 25 '22

Number 3 is definitely Bo Burnham from Inside.

u/Strict-Chair-9649 Sep 25 '22

So accurate, lol

11

u/tonyinvegas Sep 25 '22

Oh, the maintenance

u/82ndGameHead Sep 25 '22

IKR? I barely groom mine, and if I feel it drifting towards my mouth, it's a clean shave.

12

u/82ndGameHead Sep 25 '22 Narwhal Salute

No. 3 and No. 9 look like they came straight out of The Umbrella Academy and I love it!

u/Donohoed Sep 25 '22

Omfg I've been trying to remember the name of that show for weeks. Thank you

u/thisbobo Sep 25 '22

9 still doing his thing since Whisker Wars 2011

u/Outnabout3535325 Sep 25 '22

I feel like #2 is Kin

u/Roomy Sep 25 '22

Number 2 went full dwarf and I love it. Like he's already halfway done with makeup on the set of a Tolkien film.

u/the_ill_9 Sep 25 '22

1 looks like Hikaru if he was in a disguise

u/DanimalHarambe Sep 25 '22

Wolfie McWolfface has got something else going on.

u/josh_smashes Sep 25 '22

5,9,8 and 10 were awesome looking the rest looked good too but not as abstract

10 be like : "DON'T BE AFRAID !"

u/Yoink_Tactics Sep 25 '22

I like when the 10/10 is 10/10

u/dr-freddy-112 Sep 25 '22

I don't understand how people can grow their facial hair that long. I get tired of maintaining mine after a few inches.

5

u/Maiyku Sep 25 '22

Because it’s different for everyone.

The length of your hair is mostly determined by it’s life cycle; basically how much it grows before falling out/being replaced by a new one.

Some people have very long cycles naturally (meaning longer hair) and some people have very short cycles naturally (meaning shorter hair) if you were to just let it grow on it’s own.

My hair has a very long cycle and that’s why it’s pretty much always down to my waist unless I specifically get my ends trimmed and I’m able to achieve this by… doing nothing. No work whatsoever. Sometimes it’s a little bit of genetic luck.

4

u/dr-freddy-112 Sep 25 '22

You don't have to brush it, put stuff in it, trim it to keep it even, etc?

1

u/Maiyku Sep 25 '22

Not really, no.

I honestly dont brush my hair because of the kind of hair I have. I have very thick coarse hair, so it frizzes when brushed and it straightens out all my curls. I’ll usually run my hands through it a couple times and I’m good. I’ll only brush it if I’ve done something in which it could be tangled. IE: riding a motorcycle, swimming, etc.

I do put a little oil on my ends, but this is actually a very new addition to my routine and I’ve only been doing it a few weeks. It just keeps the frizz down more than anything.

I struggled for years with my hair. Trying this product or that. Styling it this way or that way. But it wasn’t until I finally stepped away from all the traditional hair care products that I finally started to see the results I was looking for all that time.

I stopped using traditional shampoo and conditioner and went with a hybrid “No-poo” method of washing my hair. Not stripping my hair of its natural oils has done it wonders. My ends don’t get dry, it’s shiner, softer, healthier. I also only wash it every 5-7 days, depending.

Literally doing nothing to my hair netted me more results than the pounds and pounds of products I’d bought.

u/strapping_young_vlad Sep 25 '22

I get the feeling that when you've got a beard like some of these, you probably don't have many other hobbies eating up your free time.

1

u/FlameEnderCyborgGuy Sep 25 '22

Motorbikes and metal perhaps?

u/PathlessDemon Sep 25 '22

“Number 10 will shock you!”

First guy looks like an Asian Big Boi from Outcast.

u/AcidTWister Sep 25 '22

7 looks like he's about to sing "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite" at me.

u/StartingReactors Sep 25 '22

I thought it was pretty cool, then I flipped to #5. I wasn’t prepared.

u/RedneckNerd23 Sep 25 '22

Like a third of these people have normal facial hair

1

u/betillsatan Sep 25 '22

last one looking like a pretzel. Yummy.

1

u/Slobbadobbavich Sep 25 '22

Are they allowed to use frames? I assume copious amounts of hairspray is involved too.

3

u/xienwolf Sep 25 '22

Number 7 was probably winner of the “no product” category.

1

u/_liomus_ Sep 25 '22

average wizard council

1

u/littlegingerfae Sep 25 '22

Looking at all the rest of them, what the heck is number 7 even doing here?!

Clearly not even in the same league as the others.

1

u/FlameEnderCyborgGuy Sep 25 '22

No structural support/products cathegory.

1

u/jankyperson Sep 25 '22

No.5 & No.10

1

u/GodGMN Sep 25 '22

2 and maybe 7 are the only ones I actually like.

The rest are more about the styling rather than the beard itself, I can see the art value in them, but in a world beard championship I'd expect more "normal-looking" beards if that makes sense, or at least beards that don't defy laws of physics.

1

u/Tim_the_Unlucky Sep 25 '22

I quite like #4 as well but that's mainly down to how the outfit brings it all together (and even then I'm not a fan of the loops). Definitely agree about expecting more normal-looking beards but that's mainly because I'm not a massive fan of the wax/holding agents being used (or at least how much in some cases). #5 is just creepy though, impressive but deeply unsettling

u/Starft Sep 25 '22

u/blueprint0411 Sep 25 '22

Why are almost all of them wearing glasses?

u/Hot-Focus-5423 Sep 25 '22

Personal thoughts on the beards, I don't mean offense to anyone

  1. Man's a mafia boss of some sort

  2. Lumberjack surpreme

  3. Cthulhu

  4. His name's Bertram, he owns a luxurious shoe factory

  5. Totally not a furry

  6. Cthulhu, but in his rebellion phase

  7. Vintage boi, he's the mysterious rival of the protag in an old western movie

  8. Don't let him hold a balloon

  9. Sonic is envious of that guy's rings

Nothing will ever beat that guy that wove his beard into a bird cage around his head that had a functioning door in the front through which he drank some tea.
