Weeki Wachee Aquaman

Are these stills from a lost Aquaman movie, you might be wondering?

No, they are shots of our newest F.O.A.M. member, Dennis Doucette, who...well, let's let him explain what we're seeing:

I work at Weeki Wachee Springs, which is one of the oldest roadside attractions in Florida. It features underwater shows featuring mermaids performing to Hans Christian Anderson's The Little Mermaid.

I work as an underwater performer there being the prince in the show. Now my job gives me the great opportunity to take amazing underwater photos of myself as Aquaman.

I don't play Aquaman in the actual shows we do. But every Halloween we do special shows and this past one I wrote the script for it and called it 'The Joker's Last Laugh: The End of Weeki Wachee'...and in this show I played Aquaman."

Amazing is right--not only are photos cool as hell, but the Aquaman costume is really spot-on, he's actually under water the whole time, and riding one of his finny friends, to boot! Great Neptune, how awesome is this?

Thanks so much Dennis!

It figures that this would happen the one year that I didn't go to the Halloween celebration at Weeki Wachee!

There really should be a DC Heroes roadside attraction.

I'd pay money to get tied up by Wonder Woman.

Very cool - Must have been a great show! DC should do something like this with their huge stable of characters, like Marvel does at Islands of Adventure.

Yeah, DC should do a lot of things to take advantage of their properties, but they don't seem to know where to start. This would be a pretty awesome thing to see, though. That Aquaman costume looks soooo cool! That first shot is just beyond awesome.

That is freakin' cool! I would definitely pay to see a show like that. Great job on the costume!
