Ballerina Armour by longgi Ballerina Armour by longgi
First of all, the original point of this armour design is to make fun of the sexist female armour designs that are running rampant in video game industry. So the armour is designed to force the user walking en pointe. The feet are hidden in the greaves, details could be seen in the side view to the right.

And I found the design interesting, so went on with a fully covered version. Hope it looks less sexist. :P

I would imagine that this type of armors combat style was an altered form of Capoeira

I totally agree about how some video games design female armour. Going with the fully covered version was definitely the way to go! Keep up the excellent work and looking foward to seeing more heavy space suit.

Thank you very much.XD
I don't mind skimpy female armor or steroid overdosed dudes if they were balanced. An elven bikini armor rates better than a fully cover plate armor, that's just stupid.

Am but a humble peon but I would say don't make fun, takes to much of your time. Your armor designs are too good for trivial things like that. Overall is super pro, but there is so much pressure on those endi points, yikes! you did that as an statement though and it makes sense. Very cool and protective otherwise.

Thank you, the time isn't completely wasted, the design could find some use one way or another, and I got to practice more :D.
And, yes the pressure to the ground will be enormous, but hey, put it in a video game, it won't look to weird, comparing tons of weirder stuff XD.
