Aquaman at Motor City Comic Con 2015

As I have well documented here, I am a huge fan of Aquaman.  I know that Aquaman is usually considered low in the Superhero rankings, but he is my guy.  Maybe that lack of appreciation makes me like him more.
At every comic con, my friends and I are always on the alert for any Aquaman sightings.  Believe me, they are rare.  Joker is hot right now.  For Superheroes, Superman is always popular, as is Batman and Spiderman.  Aquaman isn't even an afterthought.
Usually at every convention, there is that one guy who comes as Aquaman.  I have high praise for that guy.  He doesn't go with the current trends.  I have even more respect if he goes old school Aquaman.
At last year's Motor City Comic Con, we saw an Aquaman across the convention center.  It took some maneuvering, but we caught up to him and I scored the picture.
Making this one ever more rare was that this Aquaman was the first African-American Aquaman I have ever seen.  Major kudos to you, sir!
