SALT LAKE CITY — The FanX Salt Lake Comic Convention was back for its fall event last weekend, and cosplay was bigger than ever.

Cosplay, short for “costume play,” was once considered an activity for geeks. Cosplayers would come to conventions in handmade costumes, celebrating their favorite comics and video games. Others would look at them, amused at the out-of-season Halloween parade. Now, cosplay is enjoyed by everyone.

There are still hardcore cosplayers who dazzle everyone with larger-than-life costumes that include intricate details they spend months putting together.

For example, Ryan Bielik is a master cosplayer who had been working on his cosplay of “Spider-Man: Far From Home” villain Mysterio long before the movie came out in theaters earlier this year.

Planning began when he saw the very first teaser trailer. Plans and construction of the costume kept changing and adapting as more trailers came out, and finally the movie.

His 170 hours of work is evidence of the passion he has for the art of cosplay, and it showed in the final product. His wife, Candace, cosplays as well and complimented his costume with her own version of the person behind Mysterio(…)
