I wanted to do one from the front so it’s easier to see what I did with her chest plate! I just made it a lil more protective while keeping with the design

What do you think?

I think she would not get an arrow through her cleavage if she wore this armor!*

Good job in fixing Pyrrha, @caitsketches​! I appreciate how much difference such a simple change can make. 

Personally, as a big opposer of Sameface Syndrome, I have a huge beef with RWBY’s character and costume designs in general. I welcome any fix to their absurd double standards and obsession with making everything look gratuitously “cool” and anime-like without questioning how much it fits the characters and worldbuilding. Especially the casual sexualization of teenage girls. Uuugh. 😖

Comparing between this and the original honestly points out how embarrassingly close the creators were to a good design. 

Literally connect the neck thing to the chest piece, and give her pants, and we wouldn’t need a redesign.

Also, while plate armor isn’t considered a fool-proof protection against arrows, it’s obviously better than no protection at all
