Professional cosplayers who dress for fun, events and charity
In case you haven't caught on to massive explosion that is cosplay, it's kind of a big deal right now. From simple vests and capes to form generic superheroes, to PVC piping and latex to build intricate designs of the most obscure characters, the creativity found in Utah is second to none.
