The National Costume Challenge

The National Costume is the outfit, in which you present and represent your country.

A typical National Costume to represent a country showcases a country's culture and traditions, often in very creative ways. A National Costume can be very complex and colorful, hence there are no limitations on what you can do.

  • Please refrain from political messages of any sort.
  • There's no color limitation or requirement for the National Costume challenge.

  • A 360° turn is not mandatory for the Title Costume challenge.
