Advice

The hardest part of any design, but particularly with Costume Design is: defend every choice.  Know why your characters are wearing what they're wearing.  You're not scored on your drawing ability as much as you are on knowing things like: character relationships, time/ period/ place, and how your costume choices reveal characters to the audience.

 

Of course - to earn a strong Superior or Critics' Choice, you'll need to spend hours on meticulously drawing your characters.  But you won't even have a shot at it unless you can answer: "Why?"

 

Remember your textures, and the way clothes fall upon the human frame.  Shade appropriately to show the way the clothes will actually look when finished and worn.  If you don't include shading it will look like your design is made out of inflexible cardboard.
