Natural Fibres Competition
Natural Fibres Creations Classes
What Super Hero, Villian or Fantasy Being do you think you are! Now is the time to find out. This is NOT a Wearable Art class, but a SEWING class.
Your entries must be sewn, they must be original and not copies of existing copywritten costumes.
The entrant is an individual – no group entries, no families of super heroes/villians etc, no pets dressed up and no children under 16 years of age. This is an Open Adult class.
CLASS 1 – OPEN FANTASY COSTUME CLASS – Open to entrants of any age, but the costume must be suitable for a person 16 years and over. No costumes worn by children or animals will be accepted.
This is not a Wearable Art Class. All entries must be an original design and completely sewn by the entrant. All sewing regulations apply to this class including the 60% natural fibres content. Entrant may use purchased patterns for the base garment e.g. leotards etc, but not purchased base garments. The base pattern will then be adjusted and altered to accommodate your design. We do not expect you to know how to draft patterns. YOU ARE REQUIRED TO DESIGN AND MAKE YOUR OWN SUPER HERO OR VILLIAN OR FANTASY PERSON/CREATURE COSTUME. They must not be copies of existing copywritten costumes. Costumes cannot be purchased and further embellished. We are looking for not only your sewing competency, but also your ability to be creative and come up with new ideas as well as your ability to structure a garment. The entrant is required to also make any applicable masks, wings, etc. Any weapons involved in the completion of the outfit must also be made, but not from materials than can be deemed to be of a threatening nature. Try making weapons from fabric, cardboard, papier mache, plastic. These can be painted to achieve the desired look Just no metal please. All outfits including accessories, must be forwarded to the co-ordinator as per the sewing class closing dates together with the completed entry forms and please explain your design as comprehensively as possible so I can write the announcer’s script. Please ensure you package the costumes properly to ensure they are not damaged or call to organise a day to hand deliver. All outfits will be hung as soon as they arrive. Please use your imagination! That is what this class is all about – a challenge. Have a look on line, there are some great ideas there for non- copywritten. Pre-made patterns are also available for a great range of costumes.
In all classes (except Wearable Art) Synthetic Fabrics can only be used as LININGS AND PETTICOATS. No synthetic or man-made fabrics can be used in the upper garment All other fabrics must be 60% or more natural fibres.

Wearable Art Class
PLEASE REMEMBER THIS IS AN ART AND DESIGN COMPETITION – NOT A SEWING COMPETITION
An Entrant is an individual and no group entries will be accepted.
Class 9 – “Wearable Art - be as creative as you can be
Design ideas are only limited by your imagination, but you must explain your idea on the entry form. This is so the announcers can accurately describe your creation. This is not a competition for political statements, so please have fun with it. Any political comments made will not be announced during the parade. One outfit only per design idea – not same design, various lengths and shapes. Purchased base garments can be used and embellished to create the required effect so sewing skills are not required or judged. Any materials/objects and construction method etc can be used to create the required design. Minimum entry age – 15 years. Models must be 15 years or over. A coloured photograph, front and back, must be attached to the entry form. The completed entry form and photographs can be emailed to the Co-ordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. DO NOT SEND THE OUTFIT TO ME. THE ENTRANT/MODEL WILL TAKE IT TO THE FINAL. The entrant does not have to model their own outfit, but they do have to obtain their own model. We are unable to alter the advertised parade times to suit entrant’s travel or other arrangements. Wearable Art is the last class judged and modelled – It is the Wow Factor after all. All entrants must read the Terms and Conditions of Entry listed in this booklet. All entrants must compete at their local show or school organised competition prior to the final. If an entrant is unable to find a local show or school is unable to judge, please contact the State Co-ordinator to discuss alternatives.
