1. WE MUSTACHE YOU SOMETHING: Can you rock a mustache with your 80s gear? The hottest item at Victoria West High School’s Cultural Diversity Day was paper mustaches. Today was also 80s day for Spirit Week. The looks that came out of the day were pretty, um, interesting.

  6. The inspiration behind this year’s Best of Show artwork at the Houston Livestock Show Art Contest came straight from Eddie Garcia’s mind.

    The 17-year-old senior at East High School created a graphite drawing of an American Indian, with piercing eyes and a flowing headdress, to take the top honor at the show on Jan. 7.
