Fake Luchadores Among Us

Colleen Lindsay (aka La Gringa) is shutting down her blog. I’m sad about that, because I like her blog a lot. One of her last few posts includes a photo of her in a Mexican wrestling mask. That got me wondering about a photo of me from Dragon*Con 2002 where John C. Snider of SciFi Dimensions snapped of me in my Mexican wrestler getup. Mine is not only mask, but also the tights and boots that my wife had just bought me for my birthday (still the most gloriously impractical present I have ever recieved). The photo had been taken off the website but the kind Mr. Snider emailed me a copy. Thank you! Here for your viewing enjoyment is me as “Senor Muerte.”
