Wakana Gojou is a fifteen year old high-school boy who was socially traumatized in the past due to his passion for dolls and doll-making. That incident left a mark on him that made him into a social recluse. But one day he was caught talking to his doll by Kitagawa Marin, a sociable gyaru who is perfectly open about her otaku interests -- in short, the complete opposite of him.

Instead of making fun of him, she's amazed by his skill on the sewing machine, and asks if he'll help her make a cosplay! Through sharing their passions, they end up in an odd but supportive relationship.

Wakana Gojou keeps to himself till he unintentionally puts himself into Marin Kitagawa's path. Finding that he can sew she ropes him into making a cosplay costume for her to wear to events. Raised to make traditional dolls has made him have a gift for details and skilled with making clothes comes naturally. Together they find an unlikely friendship bonding over the art of cosplay which is only just the beginning. 

My bestie picked out this series for us to read together I didn't know anything about it before we started it but quickly turned into a fan. I love the story it's sweet each installment is loaded with new characters and new cosplay adventures. It's a very addicting series I ended up reading three volumes in a row only stopping to have to do real life stuff. My Dress-Up Darling is an adorable story with cute art. I loved every moment. Can't wait to finish the series and watch the anime next.
