Women Fighters In Reasonable Armor

I thought this was cool:

http://womenfighters.tumblr.com

it's a photo blog devoted to fantasy art where the armor actually protects the woman instead of just making her look hot.

I wonder how many threads have been posted on 4chan's /tg/, full of both praise and furious bile for this site. :lulz:

I'd hit it.

(but just the shiny parts)

I like the bit under the boob-shaped breastplate where he links to some examples of male heroes with ridiculous armour as well.

Reminds me of a famous line from the Storm comic albums (Dutch sci-fi cartoon, dunno if it's very widely known) but "very nice, but hardly appropriate for travelling the desert" ... though later in the series the red-haired female hero companion is clad [by angels] [that have no genitals] [inside a fractal von neumann machine space ship] [on a quest ordered by the planet goddess Pandarve] [appearing either as Alice or Marylin Monroe] [goddamnit this series was great I gotta re-read it] in nothing but a sort of white robe, that gets increasingly translucent [for no apparent reason] as the series progresses, so maybe it's not a shining example of practical female wear.

If Luna was a furry, she'd sex humans and scream "BEASTIALITY!" at the top of her lungs at inopportune times.

I like the Luna one. She is a good one.

Yeah.   Not only do they pinch, if unlined, do NOT sit too close to the fire.

Hey, it's not a meat grinder, but...   well, yeah, it would be.

For the record, I just had the top.  No way in HELL was I wearing the bottom.
