Little Ashes Moustache Contest - Give Us Your Best 'Stache!

Two lucky winners will receive an exclusive prize from Little Ashes, in theaters today!

by |

In this week's period piece Little Ashes, Twilight star Robert Pattinson adopts the mannerisms -- and the famously eccentric facial hair -- of Spanish artist Salvador Dali. In celebration of the film, which hits select cities nationwide on Friday, RT is hosting an epic, week-long moustache contest to see who can come the closest to replicating the master painter and filmmaker's iconic 'stache. Do you have the stuff that moustache dreams are made of? If so, step up and submit your best photographed, Photoshopped, or drawn self portraits for a chance to win an exclusive Little Ashes poster signed by Pattinson himself!

In Little Ashes, Robert Pattinson (Twilight) gives a daring performance as the young art student Salvador Dali, who arrives at Spain's School of Fine Arts and befriends fellow up-and-comers Luis Bunuel (Matthew McNulty) and the poet Federico Garcia Lorca (Javier Beltran), with whom Dali has an unusual and tumultuous love affair. As Dali the student grows apart from Lorca and strikes out to seize his own destiny, he grows the famous long and pointy moustache that Dali the artist would become known for -- one that he wore at times twisted up, pointed out, and even adorned with tiny flowers.
