How many objects will a single beard hold? Photographers Stacy and Pierce Thiot of Red Poppy Photography are trying to find out by experimenting with Pierce’s own luxuriant beard.

When Travis Louie, one of our favourite monster-makers (previously posted here), envisioned Bigfoot for his Spirits exhibition at the Stranger Factory gallery in 2012, he imagined the elusive cryptid as a wonderfully beardy cyclops.
We know awesome facial hair when we see it and, friends, San Francisco based-Isaiah Webb has nailed it with this aptly-named Incredibeard. Along with help from his wife, Aphan, and a variety of waxes and oils, it seems there’s nothing Isaiah cannot do with this amazing whiskers. He doesn’t need to use his hands to carry his lunch and his Predator imitation is out of this world.
Minneapolis-based photographer Ben Garvin created this awesomely silly stop-motion video staring his very own beard.
The Magic Beard is a very light-hearted reminder to “Never let a good beard go to waste.” Beards are amazing things. You can store things in them and let them entertain yourself and others with their whiskery dance moves. But watch out for the shaving cream. It’s got a mind of its own.
Ben shot this delightful video using an iPhone and then edited it using an app called Stop Motion Studio.
Because we’re still completely blown away, even after our first post about it 4 months ago, here’s a slightly different look at veteran Hollywood special effects artist Kazuhiro Tsuji’s incredibly awesome bust of Abraham Lincoln.
This fine fellow is Dieter Besuch, a competitor in the Whiskers Freestyle category of the International German Beard Championships. And those are some seriously awesome whiskers.
(Don’t fret if you haven’t got the time or ability to grow such splendid facial hair of your own. We’ve got you covered over at our Mustache Shop.)
Who is that cheerful man with the adorably double-braided beard and why is he dressed up as a Japanese schoolgirl? Kotaku’s Brian Ashcraft has the scoop: This is Hideaki Kobayashi and he’s known (and rightfully so) as “Sailor Suit Old Man.”
Recently, Japanese sites and Twitter users in Tokyo have spotted an old guy dressed in a sailor style school uniform—a truly unusual sight to behold. People were amused. People were baffled. What the hell was going on?!
Japanese site IT Media met Kobayashi and asked him the question on everyone’s mind: Why do you dress like a Japanese schoolgirl?
"That’s a difficult question," said Kobayashi. "It’s not really something I’ve thought too deeply about. Hrm. I guess it’s because sailor suits look good on me?"
We hope Mr. Kobayashi has some inkling of just how awesome he is. We can’t stop smiling as we look at these photos. Head over to Kotaku to learn more about “Sailor Suit Old Man,” our new hero of Japanese weirdness.
Polish street artists Sainer and Bezt from the ETAM Cru (previously featured here) recently finished yet another massive and completely awesome mural in Warsaw, Poland. Of course our favourite part is the organ grinder monkey wearing a dashing little vest and fez.
