chinese armour

widowgaycer  asked:

I need armour help, I don't know if you do that but I thought I'd ask. Basically, one of my characters has feathered wings growing from her back. They're big and can't be removed. She gets into fights a lot, and so she needs some kind of protective armour, but the issue is finding armour I can work around those wings. She lives in the modern day, and since she's Chinese and kind of traditional, I was thinking some kind of Chinese armour, but I can't make it work. Thanks in advance!

Okay, so, two or three problems here.

Traditional Armor; I’m going to go out on a limb here and assume you mean historical armor. There’s a reason why you don’t see people busting out kendo gear or fencing armor outside of the sports that call for them. It’s the same reason that soldiers don’t go into combat in football/rugby gear. It’s not going to protect you from the threats your facing.
