- Fabricated/Made Costumes: Any costume where over half of the costumes and accessories were either handmade, crafted, repurposed, significantly modified (see below), or an original design by you.
- An example of significantly modified: Purchasing a white dress shirt, dyeing it blue, then embellishing it with insignia.
- An example of not significantly modified: Purchasing a white dress shirt, then squirting fake blood on it.
- All costumes must be registered and screened before or at the pre-judging at 6:00 p.m.
- Costumes must be all age appropriate. No nudity, potential "wardrobe malfunctions," or obscenities will be allowed on stage. You will be asked to correct or cover the questionable part of your presentation, failure to do so will result in disqualification.
