Theatrical Human Hair Goatee BeardThe Goatee beard is very useful for all types of theatrical productions. It is usually used to represent a character who is evil, or a villain in some way. This is due to the possibility that the first goatee may have been worn by Satan. The devil's image is based on Pan, the ancient Greek half-man, half-goat deity. When early Christians began abolishing pagan religions and their gods, they needed someone to play the heavy. They chose Pan, a lover of music, dancing and sex. His flute was replaced by a pitchfork and he was transformed from the god of woods and pastures to the ruler of hell.
Van Dyke Goatee
In the 17th century, goatees got some respect thanks to Flemish painter Sir Anthony Van Dyck (also spelled Van Dyke). He did a series of portraits of men wearing the goatee variation now known as the Van Dyke. This can be recreated with our goatee along with perhaps a moustach chang. The Goatee would have to be cut, however, due to the customizable nature of all of our pieces, this is easily achieved with all of our beards and moustaches.
