Saturdays in March - Women in Armor
Have you ever wondered what the women were up to while the men were away fighting dressed in their shiny armor? Somewhere between stories of damsels-in-distress and myths of man-killing amazons lies the historical reality of women and warfare. Was there such a thing as ‘warrior-women’? Did they wear armor? Would women really wait to be rescued or would they rescue themselves? Could these distressed damsels in fact boss knights around?
I can tell you that this is Maria Archipova/ “Masha Scream” promoting an album for her band Arkona. Can’t find the photographer’s name though, sorry about that.
For a project last year i made a lady game character in 3D. I would describe her as reasonably armored.
GASP! BOOB PLATES!
I understand the point you are making, guys… but seriously… I don’t need my Inbox flooded with people complaining about how “That set of platemail that completely covered the woman in every way imaginable isn’t practical enough to be on this blog because her boobs are too sculpted.”
I try to avoid outrageous examples of “armor sculpting” when I post examples, but it’s probably going to show up a little once and a while. If you don’t like it, then fine… skip to the next picture.
ozziescribbler asked: Hi! Inspired by eschergirls & your reblog of LuckyFK's 'Fantasy Armor' satirical picture I decided to propose a new initiative: a blog dedicated to images of potential battle damage caused by ridiculous female warrior outfits. I'm willing to moderate such Tumblr, BUT as it's supposed to be mainly submission-driven (à la Hawkeye Initiative), response from potential artists and fans is needed to start out. Can I count on support from womenfighters and its fans? And maybe blog name suggestions?
I think that’s an amusing idea, and I wish you luck with it!
I am generally really busy and just manage to get on here long enough to keep the posts going, but feel free to discuss the topic amongst yourselves. :)
Another video game one. Viola the Valkyrie, from Radiant Historia. That’s her official art, BTW, so not sure where to source it to.
Tried looking for the original artist, but all I could find was links to the “Radiant Historia Official World Guidance Art Book” with no actual names of the artists on the sites. - The Manager
