DAY 20 - HAVE YOU WON ANY COSPLAY AWARDS?
Yes. I have entered the competitions that are a part of the Australian Costumers Guild Ball for the last few years.
In 2011, I won the Workmanship Award in the Journeyman Category for my 1823 Ballgown. And yes, workmanship does mean that they poke around the inside of your costume to see how it is made and check out your handsewing and finishing techniques.
Then in 2013, I won the Workmanship Award in the Journeyman Category for my I Dream of Jeannie costume.
Then in 2014, I won the Workmanship Award and the Parade Award in the Master Category as well as the People's Choice Award at the ACG Ball for my Steampunk Black Widow.
