The Beardcaster -a beard podcast all about beards and mustaches and competitive bearding


Mar 14, 2017

The Whiskerina Council was just announced so I reached out to Director Jodi Mitnick to get the scoop.  We were also joined by Event Liaison Amy Roberts and discussed what the newly formed Council hopes to achieve, the other appointed members, and other silly things.  We bounced around in this fun conversation and covered many topics from what a Whiskerina is, where the name came from, charity work, and friendship and commodore in the bearding community.  For many years the girlfriends, wives, sister, and friends have wanted to be involved in their local beard clubs, The Whiskerina Council is there to help those females who want to participate. The Council are here to give help and advice to those who wish to compete creatively and competitively, and give guidance to those that seek to be more involved.   This was a delight to sit down with these 2 lovely ladies and talk about something we all love so much and ketchup as friends.  There was a lot of fun and laughs had and I appreciate what these two women are trying to do for the bearding community, and the women who are interesting in being part.  Please feel free to check out the blog post that goes with this episode by clicking WHISKERINA.  Thank you for listening and please tell a friend, SUBSCRIBE HERE

 

    As I was preparing this blog post about my talk with the girls I thought I would look on-line and see what information I could find on the history of The Whiskerinas.  I came across a great little article written by Nate "Chops" Johnson about The Whiskerinas and where it began and some of the lovely ladies that helped propel the movement to where it is now.  I highly recommend you check this article in SHEA MAGAZINE out by clicking BELOW.  I also highly suggest you read some of his other great articles which are also found here.

    Over the years I have attended many events and taken a few pictures.  I have always been fascinated by the Whiskerina categories at the competitions and have payed special attention to those that participate in the creative categories. Here is a gallery of photos I have taken over the years of various Whiskerina that I hope you enjoy.  All of these women have put a lot of thought and creativity into their projects.  I think it is more difficult to be in a Whiskerina category sometimes than it is to be in a regular category for the men!!!  It may take years for us men to grow amazing beards but it takes a lifetime of support from our women  to achieve our dreams.  Love the women that support the bearding community because without them-we are just guys with hair on our face!  EMBRACE THE BEARD!!!!
