|I'd love to find a Giphy of this scene from Terry Pratchett's Discworld TV movie "Going Postal". |
|Hey guys and gals that like to write Fantasy stories, especially those of you who like using female heroines and sidekicks if you're the sort that wonders if Female Armor - that is armor that emphasizes the fact that the wearer is a woman, either with a large chest or breasts - would actually work, well, there is a guy who has done some research into the matter, and it seems that the idea isn't as far-fetched as it appears, especially since there is already a number of precedents in the forms of armor that emphasize male anatomy, like the Greek Muscle Cuirass, which places an emphasis on the wearer's "Six Pack", to say nothing about the Codpiece, which places an emphasis on male genitalia, and that's all I'll say about that piece of armor. Then there's the Female Barbarians that wear little more than leather on top, and no armor - the guy has done some research on how it could be practical, again using male warriors as an example, mainly stating that giving the female fighter a decent shield would be the practical thing to do. |
Of course, feel free to check out the guy's videos, which are all entertaining if you are into Fantasy and such.
