Everything is Better with Seneca’s Beard from The Hunger Games

In The Hunger Games, Seneca Crane (Wes Bentley) is “The Head Gamemaker,” the man who runs the battle-to-the-death that Katniss Everdeen attempts to survive. To me, though, he is above all the dude with the most amazing beard in Panem.

Frankly, we at Slate think that more people should consider sporting Seneca’s finely trimmed whiskers. To help everyone get started, we’ve created the handy cutouts below, plus some examples for how to use them.
