They also look at accuracy for media & historical recreations or reward creativity when regarding original designs..)

Stage Judges are sometimes called the "presentation judges" which is a misnomer as they are still judging a costume contest primarily not a singing and dancing talent show.

I hope this is helpful. Cheers!
