Awesome short Joel!
I liked how you presented the rules of this world by revealing different details at a time like the costure-characters, and of course the deadline clock.
I wasn't quite sure why the protagonist didn't transform on the 'deadline' as she seemed from the same species as the other ones, but I guess it's more related to being more 'aware' or 'lucid' in order to avoid it.
Anyway! Good work on the technical side aswell, pretty entertaining short to follow,
Thanks for sharing it here on NG!
