Pimp costumes are the year-in, year-out favorite Halloween costumes for a lot of men. And it seems that the more respectable the man in real life, the more they love the outrageousness. Look closely under that huge pink hat with the ermine trim at your next party, and you might find your accountant, your lawyer or that shy UPS guy.

Pimp Costumes: the More Outrageous the Better!

A long time ago, when I was in college (better make that a loooong time ago), we had a pimps 'n' prostitutes party for Valentine's Day. My date came wearing a pink shirt, white pants and a pink-and-black striped tie. He sprayed his blond hair black and greased it back, penciled on a tiny mustache, and put on his darkest glasses. He looked so loathsome that I could barely go near him, but the point is, he could have walked the streets like that.

Not so with today's pimp costumes. The genre has evolved, becoming more flamboyant every year. Full-on pimp costumes these days include zoot suits in neon green, flamingo pink or electric blue. A humongous hat is absolutely essential, and really, both the hat and the coat should be trimmed with fur. Lots of bling-bling and some narrow shades complete the look.

I think there are two basic reasons why men like pimp costumes so much. The first is that they enjoy the chance to cut loose, to be outrageous, without having their sexuality called into question. And the second is even more compelling: when a man dresses like a pimp, chances are good that his woman is gonna dress like a ho.

Hi Dani,I've discovered you as well as your wtebise about a month ago and I totally love a lot of your business material. I started listening to your show and actually have booked my calendar to make sure I don't miss. However, I am now listening to this 07/12/2010 show and quite frankly I am dissapointed.I do agree with most of your points except for the one that WOMAN can not and should not be in government I am saddened by the reasoning behind that. Those are the same reasonings that were used to keep women as well as people of various ethnic groups oppressed. Are you aware Society used those same reasonings to keep Women out of every aspects of society? Some people might say the same about women business owners, do you think that is a fair assessment? Also, you are doing the same as so called the power that be We are all manipulated to some degrees. Pretty much any form of advetising is soem type of manipulation. Your teachings on prospecting(which I loved) etc is a sort of manipulation. Think about it?Yes, people should not vote for someone just because of their gender nor the color of their skin. I or maybe you may not be into that line of work but you should not make those type of generalization. I think women are just as qualified as men to be in government, or any of positions in society. Gender, Skin Color, Ethnicity etc should not determine someone's qualifications. You sure are making a lot of generalizations.Also, this show seems to contradict some of your teachings on the NC/6 Figure in 6 months Audios. It really saddened me.You have some good points but I think your rant about women not being qualified to be in government etc is overshadowing your message. Man are wired to be protective as well.
