May Day Seattle: Top Civil Resistance Fashion Statements (PHOTOS)

May Day has come and gone. The streets of Seattle have returned to their normal bearded, pale and busily apathetic ways. Still, we can't help but reminisce ... about some of the awesome looks that made yesterday's spate of civil protest and questionable anarchy so memorable.

Sure, we covered all the window-busting ninjas and camera phone-wielding lookie-lous.

And, yes, Rick Anderson weighed in this morning, noting that the "anarchism" of the black bloc has become old and tired.

Hell, we even captured a photo slideshow of the Occupy Hip-Hop event at Westlake Park.

But now it's time to celebrate the fashion of May Day in Seattle. Protesting in our fair city wouldn't be nearly as exciting if it wasn't for the epic Seattle-bred style it always elicits, from the marching seat turtles of WTO yesteryear to the May Day clowns that came out of the woodwork yesterday.

Here's a look at some of our favorite civil resistance fashion statements from yesterday's action:

Can you have a May Day rally without a guy in a bird costume? You could ... but it would suck.

Sometimes democracy dons a pink mohawk and some nut-hugging leather shorts.
