Check out the 'what makes a good walk-on' thread, there's good tips in there.

Off the top of my head, some basic tips:

- challenge yourself, but don't aim so high that you don't have time, or don't yet have the skills to make what you're attempting. As a judge I prefer to see a well-made simple costume often than a sloppily made elaborate costume.

- practice a lot! When you get onstage your mind will shut off and you need that practice to keep you going!

- stay in character!!

- don't run across the stage too fast. Conversely, don't stay any longer than you need to in order to make your point.

I have a lot more tips here:
