Aesthetic liberties?

I was just wondering, do judges take off points if you don't follow the character's design exactly? Now, I'm not talking about doing something completely different from what the character wears, or coming up with a new design for them, I just mean little things, like adding a bit of texture with your fabric choices. I was thinking of doing Meiko's Conchita dress, and I wanted to add a layer of lace on the corset and neck piece, because I think it would look a lot more realistic/like a real ball gown with it, but I don't know if the judges take points off for that sort of thing. Would I have to do it plain in order to get full marks, or is this alright?

Conchita's dress
Mami Tomoe (Puella Magi Madoka Magica) - 50% complete
Queen Elsa (Frozen) - 50%
Elphaba [Emerald City inspired dress] (Wicked) - 100%
Gryffindor and proud!!!
