Fantopia Weekend is here, so is Groot!
Master sculptor and prop-maker, Calen Hoffman of Groot cosplay fame, is one of the most versatile and internationally recognized fine artists in the pop-culture arena.
As the owner and lead sculptor of Propcustomz, Calen is proficient in the use of a range of materials including clay, wood, bondo, fiberglass and foam.
Calen is in high demand as a panelist at U.S. comic conventions where he conducts workshops and engages in meet & greet sessions with fans of his work. His creations continue to wow industry professionals across the globe, including the likes of comic All-Father Stan Lee, who expressed genuine awe and appreciation for Hoffman’s most famous costume – a life-sized version of Lee’s Marvel character “Groot” who is featured in the hugely successful Guardians of the Galaxy film franchise and comic book series.
