Re: Almost ready

Black costume....shoot it against a bright color like white or tan. They will want to see the costume details and your costume will wash out of a dark background or a dimly lit environment.

Re: ATA, not so steady, build

Gaps are good for some airflow. As long as you can't see it from straight ahead, any side gaps are hidden. You're good.
