Avatar movie props and costume accessories...

Even though James Cameron's futuristic sci-fi blockbuster utilizes the latest in CGI special effects, the movie still features many detailed props and intricate costume accessories.

This selection of original items from the film were on display at the Cinerama Dome in Hollywood on December 28, 2009.
