About this project

Background

After being made redundant in 2014 from my job teaching innovation and creativity in the Public Sector, I started a company called Big Shiny Ideas Ltd and the first product I launched was a fake moustache under the brand name Super-Stache. Over the past 18 months I've been blown away by the positive reception from people towards Super-Stache and we've sold thousands of them all over the world.

Our highlights have been selling 3,500 Richard Branson blonde fake goatees to Virgin and our best selling fake beard 'The Beast' appearing in the U.S rock band's music video 'Vicious Love'. 

 

The problem we're trying to solve

  • Due to hygiene reasons you are not normally allowed to try on fake facial hair before you buy which makes it difficult to choose the right style for your costume
  • There are a wide variety of manufacturers and styles available to choose from but nowhere are they all listed in one place to make a clear comparison 

Project Vision

To create a universal app that allows people to try on fake facial hair from all major fancy dress/cosplay manufacturers including Super-Stache before they buy. 

Project Implementation 

We make fantastic fake beards, goatees and moustaches but we don't build apps, that's why we intend to engage the services of a professional web development agency.

We hope to integrate the following functionality:

  • Upload or even live stream a picture of your face to your mobile as your blank canvas
  • Choose by style, colour or manufacturer 
  • Order your facial hair from your mobile and have it shipped to you wherever you are around the world

Project Pledges

We've got some really great project pledges lined up for you including car bumper stickers, t-shirts, hoodies and of course fake beards, goatees or moustaches. We've even got some opportunities to appear in the next Super-Stache video!

Below is my creative CV to give you a bit of an idea who I am and where I've come from.

Risks and challenges

Technology Risks and Challenges

In order to overcome any technological barriers to delivering this project, if successfully funded, we will be engaging the services of a professional web development agency with a proven track record of successfully delivering similar app design and build projects.

Financial Risks and Challenges

We have carefully budgeted for the design and build of this app with a small contingency budget for any possible over spend.

As we handcraft all of our beards, goatees and moustaches to order we are confident that we can keep up with sales if we experience a significant uptake once the app has been launched. We will also carefully manage the supply chain with the other manufacturers in this instance.
