I’d offer this as an example of how armor could look, on a figure that is arguably not anatomically reasonable but nevertheless an icon…
Disclaimer – There is a Kickstarter for Faire Play, but I have no connection with it other than being a fan of Zheng3’s design work and a backer of the project.
here is some guy making 3d pinted armor for a barbie..
I think it’s a bit skin tight but otherwise it looks nice!
it’s a shame barbie can’t hold a sword.
Now Barbie can teach that mean old dinosaur who keeps knocking over her trash cans a lesson!
Awesome project on Kickstarter that is providing Barbie with armor that would make many super heroines jealous!
It is slightly more exciting for those who have access to a 3D printer (low level backers only receive the digital files to 3D print with themselves), but it’s still a great idea.
I sincerely hope that Barbie’s trend setting grip on the fashion world will lead to more famous fictional women getting badass armor.
A reminder that if Barbie can have awesome armor then there is no character too feminine to be properly protected and still look awesome.
