Creative, False Beard Freestyle: This is the category for those of you who can’t grow a beard, either because you are a child, usually because you are a woman or because you just naturally have a baby face 😉 Your false beard can be made to look as real as possible or as spectacularly unreal as possible and made from whatever material you happen to have laying around. Themed or artistic beards are an especially good with both the Judges and the spectating crowd… dress up, have fun! take a look at the Whiskerinas for inspiration
