There are definitely some grey areas between disciplines. I don't know for sure, but I'm fairly confident that those are just costumes (made by the Character Artists), set to a certain pose, and told to not be targetable.
However, it's also possible that the costume was converted into an environment object. This is kind of a PITA though, so we avoid it where we can.
can prevent forum fires!
