Busty Adventurer Chick!

No, I'm not talking about me playing WoW! I'm talking about the ad below!

















Don't worry, it's not a link, it's just a copy of the ad that I posted here. What I found odd is that she has all that armor, except to cover her abundant cleavage! In a real sword battle, that cleavage says, "Insert your sword's blade here!" There's also that gap just under her bra and just above the waist armor. Advertises the same thing. Yep, this art was made by a dude, alright... ;-)

Also, I have to wonder how practical those shoulder flanges would be in battle. Yes, I know it's to prevent a sword swing from decapitating her, but I would think that a sword swing would only glance off of the shoulder flange and towards her head. And while she's knocked senseless, her foe will then insert sword into cleavage! End of battle! If those shoulder flanges need to be there, at least curve the top of them away from her head, so that a sword glancing off of the flange will get stuck in that curve instead of striking her head!

And that gold colored trim stuck to the cups of her bra - specifically, the way they at first follow the contour of her breasts, only to curve back out. It's guaranteed to eventually get stuck in some inconvenient way! But I will admit that it's a good way to prevent someone from hugging too close - because otherwise they'll get stabbed in the chest!

I'll admit that I'm no designer of medieval armor, but surely there's armor better suited for a busty woman? How did I become a critic of medieval armor anyway? ;-)

Simple. You're a woman yourself and since you have the same build you have a practical sense of what a design SHOULD be. I think to be practical, it would be better to have armored the cleavage area for that toy model.

You stated that you are not a designer. Yes, there are some people who can't draw but have the concepts of what the character design or interior/exterior design should be.

For example - my mom. She can't draw for crap, but she has an excellent concept of both interior and exterior design.

In conclusion, don't count yourself out in the design field.

You have read enough comic books, and seen enough movies to get a good idea of what is good design and what is bad.

All I know is... if she ever decided to ride hard into battle on a horse, she'd get decapitated by the force of her own bust.

Freelancer, I guess you're right that I'm seeing this from a practical standpoint. As armor, this would be purely decorative, meant to impress others or to distract her opponents that she might be negotiating treaties or pacts with. But battle armor? Not so much.

esbat,

Your comment literally made me laugh out loud! It's a good thing I was alone at the time, or they would have thought I was crazy! And you're absolutely right that those bouncy boobs would decapitate her. I didn't notice until you brought it up, but look at the position of the neck armor. One good bounce of those boobs would push up that neck armor to chop her head off! I can see her charging into battle: "Onward, my soldiers! Follow me!" And then, "clip clop chop plop". Done in by her own armor... Thanks for the laugh!

Really, the medieval metal lingerie of ancient times are the much deried "capes" as lamented in The Incredibles.
