I just finished watching My Dress-Up Darling, and I’m in love! The season only has 12 episodes, but it covers so much without being bogged down by needless drama or filler.
If you’ve ever wanted to cosplay or learn what it takes to make a cosplay, My Dress-Up Darling is perfect! There are also some romantic elements between our two leads which is way too cute to miss!
I wish I could sew as well as Gojo!
My Dress-Up Darling (Sono Bisque Doll wa Koi wo Suru) takes one of the most exciting sides of being a fan, cosplay, and shows the highs and the lows behind this worthwhile hobby. I count myself as someone who forgot how to sew and doesn’t have the time or patience to attempt re-learning it.
Cosplay is something I have to save up for and pray my character is available, especially since most of my favorite characters are from older series (like Hetalia or Magi: The Kingdom of Magic!).
However, Gojo and Marin have a lot of advantages to cosplay planning. They live in Japan, can travel to different shops that cater to cosplay, and there are plenty of events for them to attend.
Even if the outfit looks simple and might have one color, picking the suitable fabric is crucial. Heatstroke and getting sick can happen if you’re not careful.
I appreciated all the times Gojo put his foot down and reigned Marin in when he had to. Putting on cosplay for the first time is a magical moment.
But your health is the most crucial thing no matter what you’re interested in.
Gojo and Marin are so wholesome!
Watching the sparks fly between these two is one of the best things I’ve ever seen. Gojo didn’t have an easy childhood, but he didn’t let it interfere with his passion for Hina Dolls.
And watching Marin say simple truths struck me as innocent and pure. So why do we let people dictate what we can and cannot be passionate about?
If you love something, why should your gender matter? Making fun of someone for their hobbies and trying to score a date never works.
We only have one life, so we should be free to pursue whatever we want. I wish more anime pairings taught this lesson, like Gojo and Marin.
It’s simple, but most people put up with dead-end jobs or study things they’re not interested in. But, of course, you need to learn some things, much to Marin’s disappointment.
Like, math, how to sew, and take pictures.
