Movember marks the month for men’s prostate cancer awareness. The goal is to raise money via donations where you try to grow the most fabulous moustache you can grow in 30 days.
In the past I did the occasion with my friends as a group called M7 Mo’s Effect. Why M7? Well to understand the name you need to know the video game Mass Effect. Created by Electronic Arts (EA) studio Bioware, tells the story of Commander Shepherd leading an all-star team of soldiers trying to save the galaxy from mechanical beings. The members of this elite squad were known as N7. Thus being big fans of the series I created our team’s t-shirts.
Enter the other group of friends would went by as Test Fest. They were known for going on camping trips. On one of these trips they met a chipmunk who hung out at their campsite.
“The joke is Thorlonius Munk, which was a real chipmunk who hung with us an entire camp weekend, coming back and climbing on us and eating straight from our hands… filling his little cheeks to huge proportions then running back to stash man-weekend amounts of food.” – Lawrence, founder of Test Fest.
So in classic Simpsons fashion we decided to pull a “Mr. Sparkle Merger”. That’s how Test Fest M7 Movember Molliance was born.
My original idea was going to be just a chipmunk head with M7 beside it. However I opted for a badass M7 space armour suit for a chipmunk. Of course Thorlonius needed to sport a nice bushy moustache as well.
Color scheme was to mimic the race strip space armor Commander Sheperd was known for. I played with a grey face Thorlonius but he then looked more squirrel.

A portion of all Thorolonius Munk sales will be going towards our overall Movember campaign. Feel free to share with your friends.
Some of asked will we see Thorlonius Munk again any time soon? We have kicked some ideas around and are looking to develop the epic story Thorlonius deserves. More details we be shared at a later time.
On behalf of the team I’d like to thank you for your donations and support this Movember.
