kyuuketsukirui points out a casting call for extras for the upcoming Avatar movie to play martial artists, soldiers, etc. Which says, in part:
You're asked to dress casually or in the traditional costume of your family's ethnic background.To which kyuuketsukirui replies:
And I love the weasel-wording of this casting call. They don't ever say they're looking for people of color for these roles, but when they say you should dress in "the traditional costume of your family's ethnic background", they sure don't mean kilts and lederhosen.And now my brain is irresistibly filled with images of extras showing up wearing kilts, lederhosen, wooden shoes, Morris-dancing gear, cowboy hats and boots, dirndls, peplos, and berets.
