30 Day Cosplay/Costuming Meme - Day 12

I actually posted this on LJ ages ago and am only now getting to reposting here! I'm super  behind on everything! :-)

12. Your cosplay idol.

Oh, so many costuming idols. Holly/surlygirlie is a big one - she doesn't really have a website for her personal costumes anymore, but she was one of the first, if not the first to embroider her own Bespin costume. She and her group did amazing big costumes for a lot of DragonCon masquerades - Where the Wild Things Are, Muppets, Nightmare Before Christmas... all amazing!

Pics of all the group costumes here:

There are actually so many of you - I almost feel like I don't really want to name names for fear of leaving anyone out. 

But I can't help calling out out two people who have always inspired me - Jen Thompson, who I was a fan of long before we were friends (and I'm so glad we are friends!) and who not only sews beautiful things but takes the most artful photos of herself in them:

And  Merja, who I think is amazing in every way - she's so talented, so nice, and also happens to look fantastic in everything she sews.
