(KUTV) For Dan Farr, Salt Lake Comic Con is all about the fans.

The convention appeals to all types of fans, some who dress up in costumes, known as "cosplay."

"We find that core fans, they in a lot of ways contribute to the entertainment of the event," said Farr of their costumes.

Fans will sometimes spend months, even years on their costumes. Some are so good, other fans ask to take photos with them like celebrities.

"They became part of the center attraction of the event," he said.

Utah has no shortage of fans. It has a huge fanbase of Harry Potter, Star Wars and more.

"In Utah, we gravitate to entertainment," said Farr. "We really love fantasy. We love sci-fi."
