The answer hasn't changed since the last time you asked this question.

There are three forms of adjectives: absolute (wise), comparative (wiser), and superlative (wisest).  You can also use the adverbs 'more' and 'most' in place of the last two. What you can't do is to combine the adverb with the comparative or superlative - 'more wiser' or 'most wisest'.

Numbers 2 and 3 are correct, but number 1 is wrong.

You should take care not to damage the costumes whilst in your possession, and any imperfection in the costume should be noted by you beforehand to avoid losing all or part of the deposit you have put down on the costume.
