Contestants will be judged solely on the quality and craftsmanship of their costumes. No store-bought costumes will be eligible to enter.

Shortlisted contestants will be pre-judged for craftsmanship off stage and then compete on the STGCC main stage. Each contestant will be given approximately one minute to exhibit two to three poses before exiting the stage.
