Perhaps you are referring to a different costume maker or maybe MWA has updated their design recently (which I do not think is true), but all the points you make are false. Their inner tunic does cross over, the outer skirt does open in the middle (although I do see some people to try to obscure this feature), the cape/hood is a single piece, the tattering isn't burnt at all (it's quite shredded), and the mask is as you describe it should be. I speak about this because I have one, and will be submitting soon for approval. Agreed, the GML is the ultimate approver and may interpret things differently, but I see nothing wrong with what MWA is producing. All around, I think it looks awesome and follows every point listed in the CRL without contradiction.
