Talk about losing your lucky charms….
January 23rd, 2011
The british are coming, the british are coming!!!
Looks like he bought that jacket four score and 7 years ago. Cool jacket & beard, though!
If this is what the south is counting so they can rise again…….they might as well just give it up.
I’m pretty sure this guy is a re-enactor or works at a historical museum type place of some kind
Civil War reenactor. They are a passionate bunch about their craft, BTW.
Pretty sure he doesn’t need the Taste of Home cookbook AND a can of ravioli!
Look Watson, the killer was in the shoe isle
I know that Walmart is popular down south, but even the confederate soldiers shopped there?! No wonder they lost the war.
Looks like he is stocking up for his “encampment”. Just play nice boys!
Aye laddie, the pot of gold – she ain’t bottomless ye know!
It looks like a reproduction of a Confederate Greatcoat.
it”s the ghost of Walmarts past
LMAO, yeah just a civil war reenactor. Which makes the “British are coming” comment quite hysterical.
That is the most fashionable outfit I have seen in a Walmart!
Not that I go to Walmart – but he is kind of hip.
The war is over and we LOST!!!
Kudos to Baldguy and John D…I thought maybe I was the only person who actually KNOWS a Civil War re-creationist any more. My friend does CW Navy, of all things, and is an amazingly talented stitchmaster who makes his own costume pieces when he can’t buy them on eBay. Trust me, they’re not as weird as the medieval re-creationists–and before y’all flame me to the ground, please be aware I spent 12 years proud to be An Tirian as well as American ;). Looks like he’s only half in costume (hat’s wrong, can’t tell about the pants & shoes) but that does look to be a very nicely-made coat.
Good day Watson.

Cool coat. I would wear it if it was cleaner and smaller. He can keep the beard though…..
Watson, be a good chap and go get Scotland Yard. I believe I’ve solved the case of why there are so many freaks in this establishment.
Why, LOOK!! It’s Abe Lincoln’s brother!
I'm the warped one
Hmmmm….. decisions decisions…..
If I go wireless….that would enable me to beat my meat at more truck stops with my pre-revolution sherlock home cronies!
He looks like a town crier from along time ago
Did u said abe Lincoln? “No . I said hey blinken!”
Hey Sherlock has to shop too! Plus, Wal-Creatures are a mystery to solve!
I think that my mother had the same outfit back in the 60′s.
I didnot know the Amish fought in the Civil War…
He looks awesome! Sure beats tweety bird sweatshirts, leggings and house shoes (and pretty much all other traditional WalMart attire).
i am sure when he is telling the story to the ladies that the suprise ending comes when he pulls out his musket…
Used to live near Antietam Battlefield. This guy is definitely a Civil War Reenactor. I think he looks pretty cool, actually. Not crazy about the hat though.
If the Union penetrates the Walmart line, the war is lost.
Hey I respect anyone I see on here who is that fully dressed with no butt-cheeks hanging out….and this guy gets extra-credit for having to button up all those brass buttons.
Everyone is commenting on his attire. I can’t seem to get the title out of my head. Distant memories of a Mel Brooks movie where men in tights are singing and a blind man is running into a tree. Ah, good ole satire’s.
my amusement with this website is that you never know what you are looking at… funny 24-7
An Officer and a Gentleman. Next stop the Liquor Aisle for a little Southern Comfort to go with his friend Jack Daniels.
Hey look everyone!
It’s Abe Lincoln’s gay brother in drag!
No one worry Sherlock Holmes is on the case.
All that is missing is a corncob pipe, and the outfit is complete, cause you know that musket is out on his horse!
The Rebs didn’t have grat coats, they wore overcoats.
THE SOUTH WILL RISE AGAIN!
Civil War re-enactors are such sticklers for accuracy
that they use Coal Fired microwaves for their frozen Pizza !
Okay, PoW owners, have you not realized what unites THREE of the pictures you have posted in the last week? THEY ARE CIVIL WAR REENACTORS. They are around at this time EVERY YEAR. If you don’t like it, don’t look at them. But don’t act like they go around dressed like that all the time and deserve to be on your site. Idiots.
Wow, look what he found, the same type of coat the President George Washington wore crossing the Deleware. Maybe he was one of the oarsmen???
Yeah, another reenactor. A Confederate no less. You know, if his clothing is truly an exact replica of what they wore during the Civil War, he’s probably warmer than a lot of us. They used wool to make their uniforms back then and they were pretty warm.
Me? I think he looks quite dignified, distinguished, even. Though he’s a reeinactor (I guess), I feel if all of us put as much attention to detail and appearance most reeinactors put into their self-presentation regardless of gender, income, and/or age, the world would be a more visually appealing place.
One time my friend Al took me to the movies and we saw a Christmas movie. We wore glasses that made things come out at you and there were people like this in the movie. This reminded me of that.
Sherlock Holmes here had to try the Chef ‘Boy’RDee” raviolli to be certain it met with the “health standards” of 1887. It FAILED!
He’s not a re-enactor, he’s been in the store for 150 years looking for a “FRIENDLY wal-mart associate”
Son of Sam's Club
What!? They have wireless telegraph now?
Ok so the clothes are a bit archaic. Still he looks ok, the beard is groomed, and there is no buttcrack or naked gut to be seen. He gets a pass from me.
Had it been St,. Patricks Day he would have gotten bonus points.
He is a Civil War reenactor. He is wearing a Confederate great coat. Though the hat is wrong, he is probably at an event. My unit just got back from our company muster.
he did general lee in the parking lot
hey you overgrown troll the lucky chams are on the cerial isle
“Four score and seven months ago, our fathers brought forth to this Wal-Mart a new cell phone charger…”
It’s the former U.S. surgeon general, C.Everett Koop in a retro outfit. A very retro outfit.

I’m guessing Scotland Yard has a Wii. There’s a game in his basket.
You did it again. This guy is obviously a Civil War reenactor, just like that woman you made fun of. At least this guy is fully dressed, he’s not in pajamas, he doesn’t have poop-stained underwear hanging out, or urine bags hanging out, or a bare belly, or a butt-crack hanging out. This guy’s costume is great!
Little did we know that when the South rose again they would smell like it. Good thing he stopped at the deoderant department.
This dude looks awesome!
Prarie Grove Battlefield. Look it up.
Its easy to tell he is re-inacting. Because he got hold of the exact, and I MEAN the EXACT costume worn by one of the men. It clearly hadn’t been washed in a couple of centuries. But to him, thats the charm. His inspiration comes from the sweat and oil from the garment.
Dude looks pretty f-n dashing if you ask me. I say, this is a win.
That’s C. Everett Koop. I guess being Surgeon General wasn’t enough: he wanted to be a General in the Confederate Army too.
Fore score and 150 years ago he was stylin’.
It’s elementary my dear Watson….
Uhm, the thing that bothers me most about this is that jacket. it seems he has an… arm pocket?
he looks so cool!
Did you say Abe Lincoln??
No!!! I said Hey Blinkin.
That’s why the south lost, too busy shopping at Walmart
He is AMISH! Im not just sayin this to be silly either.. He realy is! LOL.
I was thinking either Civil War re-enactment or maybe… steampunk? Either way, nice coat!
FAIL, PoWM… EPIC FAIL!!!
January 25th, 2011
photo not that funny or weird, maybe he’s into reinactments or something, But what i think is hilarious is the Men In Tights reference in the title….loves it! And i read one commenter who got it. Awesome!
Tell him he’s too late… the North already beat his side in that war.
lol is he asleep?
All I’ve got to say is…..interesting.
Please stop putting reenactors on PoW. He’s with the local CWR group, not just some lost relic from the War of Northern Aggression.
Hey! A Civil War veteran! Catch him before he hobbles away!
“Oh Robin they cut your arms off, but you grew some really nice boobs”!….

Im The Warped One,
If it were abe lincoln’s gay brother in drag, wouldn’t he look more like a woman? I dunno, i’m a drag king and its been my experience that whenever a gay male does that form of entertainment., the goal is to look more like a woman, so he’d prb nix the beard and go for a more of a dress instead of a civil war style overcoat.. nice try tho buddy..
That jacket is totally awesome. And I’ve seen similar in plenty of higher end clothing stores.
Obvious Civil War reenactor is obvious.
Most brilliant example of steampunk I have seen in any Walmart yet!

Hey they needed someone to go get more ingredients for more hard tack geez
I said, hold the reigns, man!

Wait, where’s Dr. Watson? Did he take lessons from Waldo?
Maybe someone should let him know the South Lost the CIvil War
February 2nd, 2011
Wow!!! Thats a low price!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The South will rise again, just as soon as Johnny Reb selects the correct adapter.

Def a War Between The States Reenactor! And by the way if you think thats a lot of buttons to fasten, remember this he also has to polish all of them also. And if he is in Uniform the wool coat he has on UNDER the Greatcoat also has a BUNCH of brass buttons also. On my Dress Uniform there are 16 brass buttons on the coat and 26 on the Greatcoat. Have had some wonderful conversations brought about by people asking about my uniform.

if you guys only knew the truth
January 18th, 2012
This guy was part of the “Mystery at the Museum” exhibit that was at the Little Rock Museum of Discovery for a time. It’s a traveling exhibit. He’s Sherlock Holmes. My kids loved him.

Ok so not only was I shocked to find this picture (as this is a relative of mine) but I was kind of pleased when I went though the posts and people did not bash him too badly. YES my uncle does the civil war re-enact scene. And you know, it is a mark of how cool my uncle is that he is secure in himself enough to go to wal-mart dressed like this so that he can purchase needed items.
While I understand it can be funny looking at it from someone that doesn’t know him or the situation surrounding the picture.
