A piece of advice at the end?
When preparing your costume, keep in mind that the processing and quality of the costume will also be part of evaluation. Do avoid cheap-looking materials (polystyrene etc.), poor needlework (Ex. crooked seams, ripping a few places) and pay attention to detail and accessory (shoes, wigs and other small things you consider irrelevant). The competition in the rest of Europe is really great, try to do your best so that we could be proud of you.
