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

I just love your work, may I suggest doing something Attack on titan related? It's getting really popular and I know a lot of friends who would purchase it! Keep up the good work. :D

The Fabulous Ireland Trip

Journal Entry: Sun Apr 13, 2014, 1:13 PM
As some of you remember, I disappeared off the face of the earth and closed my store for a couple weeks in February. That's because I went to Ireland! My boyfriend and I went for about two weeks for a unique way to spend our Valentine's Day (that, or it happened to fall on that period of time and we went with it  XD).

We had wanted a trip with lots of hiking, exploring, geocaching, and basically just random funsies! Ireland was a perfect fit for us since it generally lacks big cities (which I generally do not like) and is generally pretty affordable This is my business site, but there's no reason to take a break and show everyone what I do in my fun time (although usually not on a different continent >_<).

I so wish I would have listened to Lover and taken some designs with me  TT__TT  Such wonderful green expanses! We have plenty of land out here in SoCal, but it's pretty much just bland desertscape! And, while I convinced myself didn't have room in the suitcase to bring pinafores, I totally brought seven different hats all with some kind of animal ears/horns....Priorities!

We're by no means photographers, so these shots aren't very artistic or fancy, but they do capture some of our adventures <3

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!

Haha. We'll see. Most Pokemon designs will probably have to be commission-only since there are SO so so many and they already cost so much to make  XD

You tempt me no further!  I want to make a pretty hoop skirted gown equivalent of a Doctor Who costume!  I think the first doctor should get that treatment personally (although to give the gown sex appeal I'll likely design it around a Clara Oswald-themed mannequin. XDD )

Do it! Nothing is more rewarding than stepping back and looking at something you've made!
