* Irma 'Aimo' Ahmed is well-known in various BioWare fandoms, but perhaps she's best known these days for her fan works for ''Franchise/DragonAge''. She even got to do a [[http://blog.bioware.com/2010/03/01/dragon-age-the-revelation-comic/ comic based on a deleted scene]] ('''spoiler warning in the link''') with the head writer for the game.
** Also well known to BioWare's fandom, particularly the Franchise/MassEffect fanbase, is Holly Conrad. A costume maker and prop maker, Conrad started gaining notoriety when she and her studio, Crabcat Industries, showed off a series of Mass Effect cosplays at Comic-Con 2010. By that time a year later Conrad had been commissioned by Bioware to make costumes for their live broadcast during Comic-Con 2011, make props and costumes for Mass Effect 3's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OBESnvjZGt8&ob=av3e live-action trailer]] and she's become a symbol for [[FanNickname FemShep]] within the fandom.

** Also, the musical theatre group Creator/TeamStarKid who made the AffectionateParody ''AVeryPotterMusical''. The guy who played Harry Potter (Darren Criss) is actually a mainstream actor now, what with his role on ''Series/{{Glee}}'', and Ron Weasley recently made an appearance as a background dancer.

** Ernie Fosselus acted and directed one of the best parody films of ''Star Wars'' ever made, the 22-minute long ''Hardware Wars''. I believe George Lucas liked it so much he had 20th Century Fox pay Fosselus to allow them to include the short on the DVD of ''Star Wars.''

** "Archaic" (real name Liam Pomfret) is webmaster of the other big-name ''Pokémon'' site, Bulbagarden.net. He's one of the oldest [=BNFs=] in the fandom, having first made a name for himself back in 2000-2002, primarily as a leader or spokesman for the Pokémon shippers community (which got him top billing for ShipToShipCombat here); a role in which he managed to turn the entire staff of Pokémasters, then one of the major forums, against shippers. He later worked for Serebii as his right hand man, but left to [[{{Uncancelled}} (re)establish Bulbagarden]], incidentally creating a conflict between the two communities that is still ongoing many years later. The initial relaunch of Bulbagarden is most charitably described as achieving somewhat underwhelming results, but after several years of the website struggling, Archaic added a wiki to the site, which quickly grew into [[TheWikiRule Bulbapedia]]; he later led the effort to expand into the collaborative Nintendo wiki network NIWA.
