Ben Garcia

Benito Garcia, the co-owner of WETWORKS SFX STUDIOS, has been working in the local film and tv industry for several years. As a natural progression, Benito began delving into cosplay and prop fabrication for himself and other cosplayers across the country.  His love for the art shows in his devotion and dedication to his company and producing great special effects, movie makeup, costuming and film/cosplay props. Benito has been collecting comic books for over 35 years and loves everything pop culture. Being a child of the 80’s, movies helped shape his life and career path. Being a part of the local cosplay community and the friends he has made along the way has been one of Benito’s biggest joys.
