Looking for a font that matches fontawesome's hashtag

I'm not very familiar with font, so parsing the catalogue is no substitute for trying, which would be tedious for every font. The first example would be fine if foo's was more "awesome". In the second example, the hashtag is too meek. Any suggestion?

\documentclass{minimal}\usepackage{fontawesome}\usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \begin{document} \faHashtag {\fontfamily{qcr}\selectfont\bfseries \em foo}  {\fontfamily{qcr}\selectfont\bfseries \em \# foo} \end{document}

With a bit of trial and error I much prefer the second approach, as awesome is "rigid" (always looks bold whether bfseries used or not). So, this question is void. The only thing to do is to bind the hashtag with the remainder like this: \#foo.
