Who: The garb runway show is open to all ages, minors to be accompanied by a parent please.
What: Wear garb and walk in it before the audience to show off your work. You may walk in garb you made for yourself or have a model walk for you, though only the maker can win.

This is just a suggestion but two to three sentences would be ideal and leave the audience with a few bits of information to remember about each entrant.
Entrants will also have the option to bring more extensive documentation for the panel of judges to review. Entrants will have the option to meet after the show with the judges to point out details and discuss or ask advice. It is highly encouraged that contestants looking to win do bring documentation and meet with the judges as this is an ideal opportunity to speak in person about your garments.
NOTE: There will be two categories for winning, one for best outfit based on theme of the event, and one for best overall for any period. This way every persona is respected, even those who chose not to dress with the theme.
