It's finally art contest time. I polled DeviantART and Facebook and got the general idea that neither side was willing to sign up for an account to participate in the art contest. The solution? Host it somewhere completely different! lol. While the gallery and contest with have a permanent place on my Facebook page, the contest app itself DOES NOT require a Facebook or DeviantART account to participate. You just need to enter your email address, upload your image, and fill out the caption box (if you like). You also don't need any kind of account to vote, so I thought this would be the easiest option for everyone.

Anywho, you can win up to $85 in store credit and there are a couple of ways to win. Heck, half the time I end up with ties in multiple placements  XD Best of luck to everyone participating!

Darling Army is dedicated to making easy, cosplay alternatives for the cute enthusiast. Creator, owner, and one-woman-army Amanda not only designs every piece, but sews and constructs them, too. Well known as the original cosplay pinafore and kimono dress designer, the Darling Army has recently branched into street-ready geek and otaku fashion. Today’s show features handpicked designs that are ready for the streets and the masquerade stage alike. Girls don’t need to wear pants to cosplay their favorite shounen characters nor do they need to squish themselves into a tight bodysuit to be their favorite super heroine. The Darling Army wants you! Join the fight for cuteness today!

While I try to update DeviantART regularly, some of my other sites get updates more frequently and in larger volume =3

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!

Because who doesn't love pictures =D I post most of my sneakpeek photos and videos to Instagram and don't share them anywhere else. In addition to sewing room updates, OoTD pics, and sneakpeeks, I also post when I'll be taking orders.

This is where I sell existing designs as well as accept new commissions =) I only accept a limited amount of orders at a time so, if everything is marked as Coming Soon, that means I'll be accepting new orders in 2-3 weeks, so check my Facebook to find out exactly when!

Hello there, I just saw this:…

It looks like they stole your kimono design and put their watermark on it :(
or did you give them permission to sell it? (which I don't think you would)

Hopefully you can do something about it, if they really stole it :/

Have a nice day anyway!

Happy Halloween! Sorry I couldn't respond earlier was on a plane to Japan on Halloween. lol

That's okay. At least it's only November. So you went to Japan to celebrate Halloween there? Cool. I hope you had fun last month. I went as Mr. T for Halloween and went trick-or-treating at South Shore Plaza at Braintree, Massachusetts. I've got lots of candies. All of the cosplayers at South Shore Plaza recognized me as Mr. T and called me a fool as they were role playfully with me so I joined in the role play with them by pity them back. Haha! But at least I pity those cosplayers for calling me a fool.
