In general it looks good, but it's so hard when you're not seeing it on a person.
Before you decide to buy I would recommend you to ask about the length of the sleeves. Then you can measure your own arms and see if it's long enough. Same with length of dress. You don't want something too short. (Too long is an easy fix, too short is money out the window).


Thanks for the info. The costume is custom made to my measurements so luckily, all those things you commented on can be done. Smile

I also had the same question the other person asked. Boots are listed as suede/faux suede on standards. Can we use leather ones instead? Will those be approved?

Suede or something that looks like suede is the boot you are looking for. Ben

Finally got my boots in. Also redid the hair with extensions and I would love thoughts on those two parts. Please ignore the rest of my costume.It is not the one i am submitting but an old one from four years ago. Also, do I look pregnant enough to pass?







I will redo the hair with hairspray etc but wanted to make sure I am on the right track.

If you can get the bottom to curl more, then that would be great. Smile
I understand the frustration with the coiled and braided buns; they are confusing to look at, even for me. Some of it looks loosely twisted, while other parts looks more tightly twisted. And it changes direction as it goes. As I see it you have at least two strands at the base of the bun. One curves around the outside and over the other towards the middle and then becomes part of the braid strands. The other seems to have a more direct path into the braid strands.
Honestly, if you can get the size and general look right, then it should be alright. Smile It is a tricky one to do.

Thanks for the offer of help, Sarah! I just submitted so fingers crossed but if anything comes back that needs tweaking I will definitely message you. The hair and finding the correct boots were the biggest issues for me.
