Rocky Mountain Fur Con is proud to present our Guests of Honor for 2013
Idess - Idess was born in Northern California and moved to Colorado in 2010, where she has made her home and is enjoying life to the fullest.
She has always loved and enjoyed animals and cartoons, and started drawing her favorite animal characters at a young age. In 2003 she started her DeviantArt account as "Idess" and has kept the name. Her gallery quickly grew and she eventually made her way into the furry fandom through her animal and anthro art, joining FurAffinity in 2005.
While doing freelance work for the furry fandom, she also is the artist for the popular online game Mweor.com. Her work and administrator position on Mweor has allowed her to follow her dreams of being a full-time artist and to enjoy being creative every day.
Though her favorite artistic medium is watercolors, she also works in various traditional and digital medias and has also experimented with fursuit making and sewing. She enjoys trying all sorts of art and styles, and has artwork ranging from toony to hyper-realism.

Midori - Born in Lakeland Florida, but only lived there for a short time, Erin Morrow spent most of her life in Bradford,Vermont. She has always been very creative her whole life, she used to love drawing video game characters as a kid. She would try and copy the pictures in the game manuals. Her other passion was drawing animals. Her favorite being the wolf. She would draw almost everyday but as she got older she slowly stopped drawing. She began getting into sculpting with clay and making large sculptures. She hoped that one day she would make monsters for monster movies.
Her love of costumes and dressing up began with her love of the holiday Halloween. When she was little she would always get excited to dress up and be something else for awhile. But as she got older she wanted more complicated costumes, such as monsters, and werewolves. But living in Vermont she didn’t have access to many costume shops and she knew if she wanted to have those awesome costumes she would have to make them herself. Every year in August she would begin her plan of what she wanted to make for Halloween. She would spend months planning what she wanted to make. She loved wearing them to school for halloween but she wish she could make them all the time. She discovered the furry fandom around 2002, when she got her first computer. She would draw, visiting the website Yerf often. but then started to hear about fursuits. She began researching everything she could find online. Finding all sorts of info and tutorials online she decided to try and make her own fursuit. Which caused a land slide of creativity! Since finding the fandom and fursuits she has been creating suits non stop. She enjoys making fursuits in all styles, realistic, to toony! She loves to make strange and interesting creatures but her favorite are dragons and reptiles.
She now lives in Middle River, Maryland with her husband, for the past 4 years. They live in a small apartment where they share with many kinds of reptiles.
