|The Golf Costumes available for women were decidedly sexy...|
In just a couple of weeks it'll be Halloween, that quaint American holiday where the nation's young people dress up as
Many have complained in recent years about the increasing commercialization of Halloween (it's now a $5 billion business in the US) and many more have voiced objection to the increasing sleazeification of the spooky holiday... and, let's face it, to a great extent the traditional favorite costumes of the past, such as ghost, princess, astronaut and cowboy, have mostly been replaced by slightly more... salacious... options: fallen angel, charm school dropout, zebra pimp, and the like. ~ A reflection of our times, I suppose.
Anyway, I thought I'd do a quick search for "golf costumes" and see what's out there for the average person who just wants to be a golfer on Halloween.
I found quite a variety of choices, and in the ladies category they definitely lean towards the lugubrious, as you can see in the montage above. I put it together from a variety of costume sites and you can call them racy, slutty, naughty or fun but there's no denying it... these outfits are sexed-up... to the max.
The strange thing however, is that when it comes to the guy golfer's selection, there's nothing remotely racy available. In fact, all of the men's costumes seem to be inspired by the three stooges or outdated notions that golfers always look like dorks. (I have a friend who insists that guys find the Three Stooges sexy but I don't believe her).

The weird thing is, other male costumes have been "modernized". I found plenty of sexy policemen, and sexy cowboys and sexy football players, but I could find no sign of a sexy golfer, though I suppose maybe one could adapt this costume. Golf did originate in Scotland, right?
Anyway, I can only conclude that if the Golf Sluts meet up with the Golf Stooges on Halloween, the match will be rather uneven. I'm guessing the girls will have to give the guys more than a few extra strokes.
