Comic Con Tips Cosplay Heroes

Cosplay is coming to Salt Lake Comic Con. Personally, I’ve never dressed up for a Con, but I do love checking out all of the awesome costumes from both amateurs and masters. I have a lot of respect for people who are willing to put it all out there, and I can totally appreciate the skill involved in making a lot of those costumes by hand. Short or tall, big or small, cosplayers are awesome.

Of course, there will be a cosplay contest at SLC Comic Con Fan X with different categories for all types of skill and experience. But it looks like there will also be a few panels related to cosplaying such as Cosplay for Beginners, CAUSEPLAY: Using Your Costume to Make a Difference, Becoming a Professional Cosplayer, and Easy and Simple Cosplay Techniques for a Limited Budget.

We’ll be posting cosplay photos during the Con, so check back with us April 17-19 for more photos. In the meantime, here are just a few from the 2013 SLC Comic Con.

Quite frankly, Tim is a 17-year-old trapped in a 30-something-year-old’s body. He loves good TV – by which he means something with a good serialized storyline – and movies, and spends many of his nights immersed in a gloriously complex video game. He’s a firm believer that Lost was the greatest show ever made, and that includes the ending. Oh, and Tim is a staunch defender of the Ewoks and their place in the Star Wars canon. You can listen to Tim on the Whatever Makes You Weird podcast, check out his opinions about upcoming movies in our Trailerpark Tuesday segments, and find his reporting about cons and all things nerd-ish on Comic Con Tips.
