My Dress-Up Darling, Volume 4: 11/15/22
My Dress-Up Darling, Volume 4 by Shinichi Fukuda and Taylor Engel (Translator) (2019) focuses on the group cosplay with Marin, Juju and Shinju. It shows how Wakana continues to work to improve his skills as a costume designer.
This volume though continues with tropes I personally find tiresome. First there are the vastly different sisters: Juju and Shinju. Juju is short and looks young for her age. She's also completely flat chested. Her younger sister, though, is a head or more taller and endowed with ridiculously large breasts.
So of course this volume Shinju secretly wants to be a cosplayer too but because she's so young and already so curvy, she's reluctant to try. She also doesn't have her older sister's budget and can't bring herself to ask for help. So she turns to Wakana who is eager to help but doesn't have enough experience to have a clear cut solution for her problem.
The cosplay scenario therefor ends with a "humorous" wardrobe failure. Because of course, breasts exploding out of their containment is funny. Not. It's just cliche and dumb. It also objectifies a much younger character.
