war armor

Attention! The Captain has arrived. Submit your weapons for inspection. 

Complete Phasma for Dragoncon 2017, which we will have running around with a medieval Kylo Ren and a team of Sith Lords. Constructed completely from leather, which we hand-tooled, baked to shape, and riveted into place. Combine this with blood, sweat, tears, and no respect for your lungs, you have a full suit of medieval Star Wars armor!

hey can we uhhhhhhhhh get rid of boob armor?

and i mean in every fictional setting like fantasy, scifi, etc but here are two prime examples:

these are both………… pretty weird. i get that wonder woman’s outfit has been the same since 1941 but she still serves as a good example, and idek what’s going on with valkyrie. a lot of people praise this for being “feminine but functional” but this still means there’s some armor smith out there carefully molding breastplates to fit each individual boob (as per that one tumblr post going around that i don’t have the link to).

here’s an example of real life armor on women:

there you go. some real women wearing real armor made for real combat situations. now listen, i’ve worn this and yeah—– this shit’s functional. and no, it doesn’t squish your boobs in, no matter what you’re doing. it actually fits quite snugly despite how it looks. see how no effort was made to have individual boobs poke through? that’s because that shit ain’t necessary. in fact the breast molding would be pretty terrible for your rib cage but i’m sure you’ve all seen that post.

at least star wars got this one right:

The First Order’s Commanding Three, ready to take over the Galaxy…

Hey guys, here’s our group shot with our Emperor Hux, thus becoming the three fantasy star wars villains!
