What is My Dress-Up Darling About?
My Dress-up Darling revolves around Wakana Gojou, a first-year high-school student who aspires to be a Hina Doll craftsman like his grandfather, who raised him after he was orphaned. One day, Day Marin Kitagawa, a popular classmate of his discovers him sewing away all by himself. For the loner that Wakana is, popular and bubbly people feel like creatures from a different planet.
To make it even more interesting, she makes it a point to drag him into a completely new hobby – cosplay! She asks him to make clothes for a person, a cosplay costume for her character and even with no experience in the field, Wakana agrees, accepting it as an equivalent to a life-size Hina doll.
