Cosplay: Ryan Wells

Ryan Wells, from Portland OR, has been doing props and sets for various theater and haunt productions throughout the years and only recently started cosplaying in September of 2013. Ryan can be found featured on several cosplay and special effects panels as well as workshops at various conventions throughout the Pacific NW, podcasts, cosplay websites, web series and Forbes.com. Ryan is admin of several cosplay groups and is a huge advocate for sharing ideas, community and volunteering through cosplay.

“Cosplay was a natural progression for me since there was simply not enough Halloween in my life. I love to learn new skills, trades, make challenges for myself, getting inspiration and ideas from friends (new and old) and making connections through this great community. Known for being a "creature cosplayer" I tend to draw inspiration mainly from film but I’m trying to branch out into other genres.”
