While at the anti-NATO protest I became especially intrigued by the clothes/costumes worn by the different activists – particularly those associated with the “Black Block”/Anarchists. Clearly, there are important elements of “dressing to impress” and identity formation at work. They do not all appear to be consistent but they likely never are.
Below are some of the interesting things we observed:
Below one sees that the NFL (National Football League) and MLB (Major League Baseball) are proud “sponsors” of anarchists, an essential component of any radical wardrobe. I wonder about the teams. There are also some uses of head scarves found in the Middle East (does anyone know what the light green one represents?)
