I'd freak if you did the Eeveeloutions (especially Flareon!). I'd totally work it, or at least try to!!!!

Have you considered any Black Butler (Kuroshitsuji) inspired pinafores? Or The Mortal Instruments/Infernal Devices?

Hello! Welcome to the DA site for the Darling Army! I specialize in making otaku cute! No longer do girls need to wear pants to be their favorite boy characters!

I specialize in femme designs inspired by anime, gaming, and geek culture in general. Most designs are in the form of aprons and pinafores which are a type of dress accessory. You can follow along in a variety of ways!

Join the Darling Army on Facebook and instantly be updated about upcoming events and designs. The Darling Army facebook page is also unique in that it allows you to post your own photos of you wearing Darling Army designs! Show off your full costume and show the world how you are a member of the Darling Army! I also post fanart of characters in DA designs, so feel free to submit them!

I finally have my own store! Introducing the Darling Army Store! This is where I sell existing designs as well as accept new commissions =) I only accept 20 orders at a time so, if everything is marked as Coming Soon, that means I'll be accpeting another 20 orders in a week or so, so check my Facebook to find out exactly when!

Wow! What amazing skirts, pinafores, and kimonos. It's cool that I found someone else like me, who designs clothes inspired by all types of pop culture.

Have you ever considered doing some Hetalia dresses? I've sure you'd have lots of fun with their uniforms ;)
DarlingArmy Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I've actually done most of the nations as well as some alternative costumes  =3  They're just commission-only designs, so I don't ever take pictures of them  XD
