TIP: When you find an image of a female character that’s otherwise fantastic, but the armour is so godawful that it makes you wanna cry, convince yourself that it is NOT, in fact, armour. It’s just attire. It’s not meant to protect anything, it’s just a piece of… fashion.
Maybe, like a monk, the character doesn’t need armour, because she has trained and trained to avoid blows. That’s her defence strategy. Or perhaps, she hasn’t put her armour on yet. She’s not engaged in combat at the moment. Or if she is, combat came unexpectedly and she didn’t have time to don anything.
Pick a reason, do some mental yoga, and convince yourself. It won’t work on all images, but you may be able to salvage a few.
