Pop culture fans may be slightly perplexed by the new even-more-extra-long Avatar collector's edition DVD, but political protesters are getting more into James Cameron's tale of the blue people's eco-revolt. Is cosplay the future of political protest?


In this picture, taken last weekend, a group of protestors in Taiwan protest the petrochemical industry by dressing as Na'vi. I love how they look sort of like a 1970s rock band, and sort of like cosplayers at Comic-Con.
