Is ‘Looks Nothing Like the Male Version’ a free space for the purposes of this contest?
I say, the choice is up to contestant: they are free to leave out the square (without getting any negative notes for that), but inclusion of a male version for comparison is definitely appreciated as additional effort.
Using a stock image of male armor just as a placeholder for comparison is good too.
Similarly for the ‘More advanced level = skimpier’ square. Depicting more than one version of the same armor counts as additional effort, but showing just one level of the armor is fine.
