To be someones icon

Ive been reenacting most of my life, and w the finest for at least 3 years now. But this is the first outing as Shipwreck. Let me tell you it is a difference as a main character vs a background guy. I got stopped more and told childhood stories, got pictures with more, even had the privilage of getting my picture with a young gunners mate in the coast guard.

It was a big day for me. Got to take my girls to something for them. Took 4.5 hours each way but was well worth the daddy daughter time.
As always had a great time w the finest


It’s always neat to meet folks when you’re dressed as their favorite character! At one con there was a little kid who recognized Mercer and said that Mercer was his favorite. Made me feel like a million bucks! It’s one of my favorite things about dressing up in G.I. Joe costumes.

That was like that for me wearing my Snake Eyes. People kept coming over to me and telling me how much the character meant to them. The fact that I would nod and give the thumbs up but not speak gave fans a real kick. :blush:
