Tidy Up Tuesday #95
Reminder to all first-time readers (who likely won’t even see this post) that questioning the very idea of criticizing any costume design isn’t a good look when you’re reblogging from a costume design critique blog.
Even casual scroll through our resource and reference tags would lead you to really good (often older than the videos in question) debunks about boob armor from people who, unlike him, make and/or wear armor for its intended use. Some of which, unlike him, are women and maaaybe have more expertise on what it’s like to have boobs under a breastplate. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
Read this one, for starters.
Things we addressed before:
- The “But I personally like that thing you’re criticizing!” argument.
- And yes, our answer is the same even if you claim you’re “a female”.
- The “There are vaguely sexy men around, therefore sexism is solved!.” argument.
- What would be a good redesign for a character who breathed through their skin?
