To help insure that submitting a costume goes smoothly, here are the basic steps and advice. These steps are the same for a new costumer seeking to have their first costume approved for admission or one who has multiple costumes.

To start, look at the top of your profile for a button-My Costumes



On the next screen use the add a costume button



The next screen is Enter a new costume. On this screen you will need to enter the costume category, Character name(your choosing, could use forum name if you like, if face character use that name) and character/costume description(to help the judges, use this to tell for example; what fabrics were used, how parts were built or by whom if bought, any pertinent information that judges may need)



After entering the costume category and other information, it's time to add photos. This is the most important part of the application and usually causes the most delays in judging. If the photo links don't work the application is held up until they are made to work. The photos need to be in front of a neutral background(this makes photoshopping easy) and be in focus and high enough quality to see all parts of the costume. The photos judges need are an action shot; full length: front, back, left, right, close-ups of parts required such as x-wing pilot's chest box or Jedi's belt and accessories, lastly if your character wears a helmet/full mask a photo with the helmet/mask off is also needed. The action shot can be uploaded from your computer and it is used for the roster picture. The additional photos need to be hosted on a site such as Photobucket. There is test address button that can be used to make sure the photo links work before submitting. It is highly recommended that the test address button is used.



When it comes to photos, the more you have especially of parts, the better. Once you have gone through all these steps the last one is to hit the submit application at the bottom of the enter a new costume screen.

The excitement over the new film is growing and so is the costuming queue. Making sure your costume submission has everything needed with working links will help it and the judges get it through the queue.
