Billion Bearded Lady's March

Postby FIGJAM » Thu Feb 12, 2015 7:49 am

In the spirit of this years theme, I'm announcing the official first annual billion bearded lady march.

Start by MAKING a beard.

Gather the shedded pet hair, shave your s/o while they sleep, repurpose a merkin, get a wig from goodwill, cut one out of construction paper, but try not to BUY a false beard!!! (Build ur burn, don't buy ur burn.)

The march will start at the MAN at 10 AM Wed. morning and march, dance, crawl, hobble, or bike to the temple where the beards will be hung or tied to the interior.

Come on lady's and gentleman, step right up, and lets CREATE a record breaking event!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Spread the word!!!!!!!
"Don't buy ur Burn...........Build ur Burn!"

"If I can't find an answer, I'll create one!!!"

The carnival will have to do without this bearded lady.

Um, Figgy, You're not a lady. This would go over better if you got a beard to front it for you.

All genders are welcome.

If you think I don't have a couple of balloons to stick up my shirt, you have underestimated me!!!

What about drag queens and trans genders?

Why of course they're welcome!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We can ALL be bearded lady's for as long as we like.

Radical inclusion!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 8)

I can definitely crochet myself a beard in time for this event.

Quite worried about the "hanging them up in the temple" part, as until I'd fully digested what that meant, I had pictured Kenny by my side, boobs-abobbing, happy to be a bearded Woman for a change. Not sure that his detaches for the final part of that trek....
Worry is a misuse of imagination

She had blue skin, And so did he.
He kept it hid And so did she.
They searched for blue Their whole life through,
Then passed right by- And never knew.”

It's totally up to the participant how they do this event.

The only guideline (not a rule) is to make your own beard.

Some of us ladies have this as a natural "skill". 8)

I like this - and FIGJAM's right, bearded lady makes for an easy and fun option you can wear anytime through the week. Guys looking to dress in drag can do some looking around in thrift stores to see what kind of options are out there - you'll save a few bucks, re-use and re-purpose existing stuff, and in many cases you support a charitable organization.

Make sure that beard isn't going to make MOOP on the playa. Just like when working with fur, that could mean anything from checking the material first and finishing the edges, or just giving it a thorough brush-out beforehand to get rid of loose and straggly bits.

Last nights Academy Awards Show party drinking game was taking a swig of Champagne every time they showed a celebrity beard.

Now THAT is what I'm talkin bout!!!!!!!! 8)

There was a kid in my elementary school who's hair stayed perfectly combed all day.

I found out one morning the secret to his quaff.

His mom would dissolve 2 tsp. of sugar in a glass of water and comb his hair with that.

When it was dry, it could compete with the best hair spay ever invented.

I'm going to get a long wig and attempt the same thing making descending sizes of elaborate handlebar mustaches going down the beard. 8)

Just when I think Vulture Chow can't get anymore attractive......

Okay, now I'm trying to figure out what to wear to the march, which colors are more flattering to my figure.....

Figjam, Do you think that plain white glue will hold it's shape and be stiff enough?

"Albumen"

Isnt that a catch-all term dry cleaners use for dried white stains on suits and slacks?

Moving this event to Tuesday at 10 AM so as not to conflict with the sing-along at TKs.

We meet in the shadow of "The Mans" head at 10 AM!!! 8)

I've been trying different looks for my beard. Can't decide. I'll be the one wearing beards on several parts.
