I got more compliments than flaws pointed out in the one craftsmanship contest I entered. The judges were impressed with my draping skills and the fact I have an embroidery machine. (I entered a Steampunk bustle skirt/pirate outfit I made myself) Basically, those 2 things showed the passion I have for costuming that goes above and beyond my competitors. I find that judges are looking for details and things that set you apart in a good way. They're not supposed to pick on loose threads or imperfect painting. They want to ask you how you did it, or what you learned when making your costume.
