Costume design in Hollywood is such a big deal it has its own Oscar category. And with good reason! Even the most mundane outfits are stitched seam-to-seam with truly impressive details. And if you look close enough, the costumes in a movie or show tell as much of a story as the script does. 

Maybe fewer dance numbers during the telecast, Academy, and more screentime explaining why the costume design contenders are so worthy rather then the 45 seconds you currently dole out.

What would any of the Marvel movies be without the killer costumes? It seems like Captain America's changed 37 times before he vanished and came back old or whatever. Similarly, however Game Of Thrones ended, it did have an undisputed run near the top of the costume game. None of that happened by accident, of course.

This contest was suggested by Amomaxia, whose orange parachute pants are embroidered with scenes from his entire life story.
