Hello, friends! Sorry that I've been MIA for so long  XD  Adjusting to being a mother of two has been super hard, especially when you throw work into the mix! As a result, I kinda dropped updating DeviantArt with new designs. Fixing it now, though! Be prepared for massive updates and art drops over the next few weeks as I upload some of my newer designs!

If you want to stay up to date with everything Darling Army, make sure to follow me on Insta or Twitter <3

Enjoy the new lovelies!

  • Listening to: Regina Spektor
  • Reading: Smutty Miraculous Ladybug fanfiction
  • Watching: Dragon Prince
  • Playing: Nothing. Moms don't have time to play games!
  • Eating: Scrambled eggs

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!

:iconprincesscelestiaplz::iconsaysplz:A very good day to you, human. I come to you on your day of birth with greetings... and thanks.
:iconcelestia-plz::iconsaysplz:My good subject Pinkie Pie told me she had taken to congratulating some humans on their birthdays, but even she has her limits. So she asked us for a bit of assistance... and for such friends of ponykind, we feel it right to provide it.
:iconhappycelestiaplz::iconsaysplz:It is thanks to people like you that our land of Equestria, our very world, exists like it does. It is your friendship with us that gave us life. For that, we will forever be grateful and cherish you.
:iconcelestiapleasedplz::iconsaysplz:And so, allow me to wish you happiness, peace, prosperity and fulfillment! My hope goes with you that you suffer no hardship in the year ahead, but should a challenge befall you, I am certain your courage and skill will see you rise to conquer it!
:iconcelestiaorlyplz::iconsaysplz:Now... where is she...
:iconlunawaveplz::iconsaysplz:Here, sister!
:iconcelestiahappyplz::iconsaysplz:Fashionably late, I see! But just in time for the greetings to be given.
:iconlunashappyplz::iconsaysplz:Right! I'm ready. Three, two, one...
:iconcelestiawubplz::iconsaysplz:Happy Birthday!:iconsays2plz::iconlunahaplz:
:icondatcelestiaplz::iconsaysplz:And now... let us commence the royal party.
