Things To Check Before The Feis

  • Check your costumes to make sure you don’t need to replace crystals or get anything fixed that has come apart.
  • Check that your zipper works well.
  • If you have a costume, like a team costume, with white lace attached you can remove the lace and bleach it for a feis or major competition.
  • Shine your shoes.
  • Put on your tanner if you use it.
  • Make sure all your feis items are packed and ready to go from your feis list.
