Young Gangan Magazine has chapters of My Dress-Up Darling in Japan twice-monthly since it started serialization on January 19, 2018. Square Enix releases the manga series in English, describing the first volume as such:
Traumatized by a childhood incident with a friend who took exception to his love of traditional dolls, doll-artisan hopeful Wakana Gojou passes his days as a loner, finding solace in the home ec room at his high school. To Wakana, people like beautiful Marin Kitagawa, a trendy girl who's always surrounded by a throng of friends, is practically an alien from another world. But when cheerful Marin--never one to be shy--spots Wakana sewing away one day after school, she barges in with the aim of roping her quiet classmante into her secret hobby: cosplay! Will Wakana's wounded heart be able to handle the invasion from this sexy alien?!
The My Dress-Up Darling TV anime is directed by Keisuke Shinohara and features animation produced at CloverWorks. The series is scheduled to begin broadcasting in Japan on TOKYO MX on January 8 at 24:00 (effectively 12 AM on January 9).
