“My Dress-Up Darling” past episodes featured genuine parts that reminded me of my life observations as a cosplayer, and this one seemed unique. While not everyone has experience constructing a costume from birth, most, if not all, individuals understand what it’s like to dress up really for the first time and walk out onto folks who you hope would feel the support you carry on your sleeve, reports Anime News Network.
Gojo is courteous and sympathetic enough to figure out altogether why everybody is even there in the first place, despite his lack of knowledge of cosplay. I can’t wait for a day when I can meet up with folks regularly to capture cosplay photographs at the interior and exterior events.
On the technical side, I enjoy how the show emphasizes some of the minor details that might make some costumes and sets unsuitable for these sorts of occasions.
While Gojo appears to have done an excellent job on the face, many details are overlooked. When you’ve never stitched for a real person before, and I enjoy how this episode hints at that gently and quietly. Rather than making it clear who they are right away, they make it clear later on.
Things like the sleeves not being able to go up to a specific height because Gojo neglected to account for them. Especially for a moving model who has hitherto only stitched for dolls. Even though the outfit was manufactured to particular specifications, Kitagawa added to the eponymous breast region. Furthermore, the dress’s material was not extremely breathable, making heating a tad simpler.
All of this is on top of the basic exhaustion of cosplaying, which I believe many people overlook. Even under ideal settings, wearing a wig hat and unusual attire for further than a couple of hours begins to wear on you. However, the episode does go back to those aspects for Gojo. I like how sensitive he is to her needs in terms of Kitagawa, even though they are sometimes uncomfortable for him. He resembles a proper cosplay spouse in many respects, and anyone watching this program who fantasizes about having a hot cosplay girlfriend should beware.
Because things might get tricky, you should be ready to put in at least the effort that Gojo does throughout the episode.
What isn’t difficult, though, are Gojo’s genuine sentiments of loss and yearning all through the episode, that now his promise has been fulfilled, and he no longer sees a cause for Kitagawa to care about him. Given that this endeavor is the only thing that keeps them together, it seems logical for someone as unhappy as him to think about their partnership in such a commercial way.
