Has anyone here grown one? Did you use moustache wax? What was the final out come? How long did you keep it? Problems with it? Problems kissing your significant other?
I'm contemplating it as a project for fall.

I currently have one. No recent pictures and I also have a three-week beard, or I'd share. I started it last No-Shave November, bought wax, so couldn't waste it.
I trimmed the middle of it a while back. It makes it easier to push into passable shape without wax, and it's a lot more comfortable to eat that way, but loses the 'English gentleman' look for more of a Dali.
Some people can brush it into shape, but I'm Irish and/or Scotch-Irish descent, maybe with some proper Scottish thrown in, so my facial hair is stubborn as all get-out. Thus my moustache does what it will. Until it gets a certain length, one side curls into perfect shape, but the other reverses it. :P
As for wax, I can't even bother with the Clubman cream stuff I can actually find at Walgreen's. Firehouse's Wacky Tacky is the best stuff out there.

I have one, just a small one. Don't wanna stand out too much!
I use a Swedish mustache wax that is a little softer most of the time but I have another brand that gives a really stiff hold.

Blue Swede well done mine is similar, just incorporated with a beard.
I use moustache wax that comes in a chapstick container very tough stuff no name brand.
As far as attention I get it is mostly positive, some people just can't handle it's power, but that's there problem and your advantage. I say do it its fun and you get to learn your moustache.

There's a speedball guy in the pros who runs with a handlebar over a beard. It looked pretty epic. I'd reccomend that. Handlebar by itself is somewhat pervy. Lots of products out there that are pretty good. Get a bee's wax version. Also, use beard oil for when you're growing it all in to keep the hairs soft, low itch, and pliable for shaping. I mix my own and have concocted a variety of different smells. One you might like is the following recipe.
Get a 1-2oz glass spray bottle from a health food shop.
Mix 1/3 Almond oil with vitamin E (keeps acne down and great for keeping skin happy)
1/3 Jojoba oil
1/3 grapeseed oil
This makes your base. It should have no scent.
If you want a good scent try the following....adjust as needed. The blends need 24hours to develop the best smell.
Woodsman (25 scent drops per 1oz base oil)
1/3 pine essential oil (PURE!)
1/3 cedar essential oil
1/3 sandalwood essential oil
I've got other blends if you like. Let me know.
When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead. It's difficult only for others.
It's the same when you're stupid.

No handlebar, but a mustache that I maintain while my beard goes from 3/16"trimmed to longer. When I need to I rub some Stache Bomb (Stache Bomb Stache Wax- Moustache Wax From Maine - Home) on it and get things going just right. I don't do the ball of was on each finger tip and smear around and then rub in and comb around... that just ends up looking like you shoved your face in some food and didn't use a napkin. I just rub my forefinger around the tin in a circle until it's got some wax on it and then apply and rub it in. Mr. Natty has his **** together with regards to keeping your stache looking well:
I had a nice mustache comb at one point but the damn things just get lost and at $7 a piece (no not that cheap pos clubman crap you get at Rite aid) it has not been replaced.
