I'm actually a freecutter, so I don't use patterns or anything =3 The best advice I can offer is to have a dressform to work with. I would be lost without mine!

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!

Hi, I'm just curious. Have you ever had anyone commission you for a pinafore or a kimono dress of Undertaker from Black Butler?
DarlingArmy Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2015  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yes! It's been awhile (one of my earlier kimono dress commissions), but I made one a couple years ago  =3
Darkness-Rules-All Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Cool! :D I'm kinda interested in commissioning one from you myself. I've been admiring your wonderful kimono dresses and pinafores and skirts for a while now, but I couldn't decide on what design I'd want if I ever saved up enough before.
DarlingArmy Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2015  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I'd start off with your favorite character for a first one  =3  That way you get the full experience of the roleplaying. I still have the most fun cosplaying Goku and Vegeta with my friend since they're our favorite duo <3
