Hot Halloween costume for 2011: Mongolian wrestlers

Mongolians take their wrestling seriously...and their wrestling outfits even more seriouslier. In 2004, China set the world record for the largest wrestling tournament with over 2,000 competitors. That didn't sit well with these Mongolians, who staged a 6,000-person wrestling tournament over the weekend to take the new world record (though, with over a billion people in China, this isn't a back-and-forth Mongolia can really win). You can see more great photos of the sport on this flickr page; You know these "Mongolian wrestler" outfits would be an October 31st hit on Santa Monica Blvd....
