This was REALLY amazing this year. The contestants had two hours to build a pre-existing character costume. The theme was magical girls and the secret ingredient was plastic wrap.
Team 1 overcame some pretty bad setbacks to make an Akazukin Chacha costume. Their lead member vanished and they had to recruit someone 5 minutes before construction began. In addition to that the supply bag they got had been added the night before and unfortunately there was a problem with the box cutter and there were no safety pins.
Team 3 made a Card Captor Sakura bunny costume. They made the best use of the secret ingredient, plastic wrap.
Team 2 was our winning team and received $60 from cosplay.com. They Made a Cure White costume from Pretty Cure and also made plushies of the sidekick.
