HI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love your dresses! You're so talented!

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

I would totally just DIE from happiness if you would make a disney villain themed pinafore!!! especially one of jafar and ursula or a disney side character like GENIE :D

I was wondering if you could make a steampunk themed pinafore XD

Have you considered any Black Butler (Kuroshitsuji) inspired pinafores? Or The Mortal Instruments/Infernal Devices?
Mon Sep 23, 2013, 5:00 PM
I said Hogwarts houses but also Dr. Horrible & Captain Hammer, Wolverine, and The Joker pleeeassse (PS I will buy Slytherin as soon as it's done)

Also: Zelda Wind Waker Nayru, Din and Farore symbols; they're simple, and gorgeous colours, and I would so buy one..

Accepting Orders on Monday Night

Heeeeyyyyyy so I totally never spam deviantArt with my store announcements, so I decided to let you guys know when I'm taking orders for once!

Ccs by DarlingArmy

Surprise! A late acceptance date for those of you in Australia and New Zealand! The next order acceptance date will be Monday night (October 6th) at 5PM. I am in California, so please figure out time zones beforehand. If you are interested in a custom commission, please start messaging me so I can have it set up by Monday.

I've been working 14+ hour shifts and have been getting lots done  It looks like even the orders that were on the "not guaranteed for Halloween" list will more than likely be delivered before Hallow's Eve =3 I'm still waiting on supplies for most of the orders from the last batch, but I'm prepared enough to be able to bust them out as soon as they get here. (They also shipped fabric much quicker than usual!).

Anywho, this next batch IS NOT guaranteed for Halloween, no exceptions. Just because this last batch of supplies shipped early doesn't mean it will happen again (it usually takes forever!). I do expect that I'll be able to get some out by Halloween, though; I just won't promise or give any answers. If you message me asking, I'll just reply "I don't know," regardless of the circumstance.

How to Order:

  • Listening to: Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar
  • Reading: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
  • Watching: Supernatural...again....
  • Playing: Minecraft
  • Eating: Gouda Cheese
  • Drinking: Diet Pepsi

That just means that I'm taking orders specifically for Christmas delivery. I don't make any Christmas themed designs  =3  And yes, I do ship internationally. Thw site does all the shipping work for me  =3  As long as you give it an address, it will set up shipping
BabcinyPasztet Featured By Owner 2 days ago  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Hm, so i guess as far it is as it will be more expensive , right? 0:
DarlingArmy Featured By Owner 2 days ago  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
It's not too bad. Usually between $16-23 for international shipping

DarlingArmy Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I actually don't offer formal dresses anymore  XD  Just the kimono dresses and pinafores at the moment
Julicat98 Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2014  New member
awwwe :/ that was a really beautiful dress!!
DarlingArmy Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Thanks you! They're just a pain to make since I have to custom create the patterns. When I was making dresses, they ran $400-700  since they took so long and cost so much to makeTT____TT  Too much
