That's me in the picture.
Years ago, I honed impersonating Odo at a DS9-themed murder mystery we did at a convention. Later I refined the make-up, which I do myself, uniform (not shown) and performance at various appearances. The photo was taken just before I presented James Darren with a margarita on stage at another con. It was classic. No, BEYOND classic.
And yes, Rene has seen me, and, now I'm very lucky and honored to count him as a good friend.
