audience is often intimately familiar with the characters they watch
on video or read in books, there is somewhat less emphasis on costume
accuracy. To many anime fans, if there are enough elements on the
costume to identify the character, that is good enough (like wearing a
store-bought Halloween costume is good enough to look the part). They
tend not to sweat the details. This is obviously a problem when you
deal with costume judging. The anime audience is generally more
absorbed into the media content than the costuming details.
However, there are anime costumers that do work for accuracy to one
source, rather than mix and match from multiple sources, so judging
them on recreation guidelines should not differ than what you've been
doing for recreation judging anyway.
In the end, it is probably up to the MD to define the granularity of
the definition of "recreation."
