The entries for the folio this time around will focus on accessories or separate pieces of costumes.
The setting for the folio is an intergalactic shopping complex. There are a number of shops catering to the various needs of a very diversified clientele. I am hoping for more submissions as single accessory pieces which can be put in a display room with the designs for the fashion folio. Often it is the accessories which actually put the costume over the top especially with the workmanship Judge.
Note: you do not have to assign your design to a store if you are not sure. The judges will assist in categorizing your designs. Please click here for the rules.
