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!

Thanks! When I finish a new design, I usually do throw it on  XD  Half of the time I end up making a second for myself! Except for capelets...I've made a duplicate of ever single capelet I've made for myself
