Lady Transforms Into Dudes for Men’s Health Awareness

Men aren’t the only ones rocking a mustache in honor of the Movember men’s health awareness movement.

For the past two Novembers, Dallas-based artist S. Van Lokey has transformed herself into a series of mustachioed menfolk so realistic even her own mother didn’t recognize her in the photos.

“It started out as a goof where I would put on a pink or purple ‘stache,” Van Lokey said. “But then I started doing more realistic ones to see if I could make myself disappear into the pictures.”

Van Lokey, who said she was also motivated by a family member’s illness, does all of the makeup and wardrobe herself. She then takes pictures on her iPhone and posts them to her Facebook page.

“The response has been overwhelming,” she said. “But a lot of people don’t believe it’s me or they think I’ve manipulated the images with Photoshop, in some way.”

Van Lokey isn’t sure she will repeat her Movember masquerade again next year but she said is happy her photos have generated publicity for a good cause.
