It's a nice day for a blue wedding.
According to Metro.co.uk, people with cash to burn can partake of the living sacrament in an "Avatar"-themed wedding ceremony hosted by a group of tourist bosses in Wu Lingyuan in southern China.
The location's beautiful forestry was James Cameron's inspiration for the lush tropical planet Pandora in his smash hit film, "Avatar." That the locals seek to align the area with the successful film is no surprise. There’s a profit to be made off the gorgeous vistas.
What is a surprise is the method of promotion: an unsettling wedding service featuring homemade Na'vi costumes. In the picture, the Na'vi warrior on the left appears to flash a gang sign, while the one on the left stares off into the distance, perhaps questioning the life choices that got him into that hideous blue unitard.
"The Na'vi were a couple of forestry workers dressed up in long underwear dyed blue wearing some very unconvincing masks. It was really pathetic," said Xiao Tsao, a bride in a recent "Avatar" wedding.
But the folks behind the wedding have a defense: "We are not professional special effects experts but we do our best. What we are really highlighting is the beauty of our landscape."
Maybe the people of Wu Lingyuan should ask James Cameron for some investment dough. Something tells us he's living comfortably.
