Chinese fancy dress quality costumes will score much lower than well tailored ones. Tips: We favour handmade costumes over anything else. What we look at: We will be checking how faithful your costume, hair, make-up and props are to the character you’re cosplaying as. If your costume is handmade, make sure to let us know how you made it, if not, try and put more emphasis on something you styled, like your wig or make-up.
