As a special present for my Bikini Armor Battle Damage blog's first anniversary, I present to you: Female Armor BINGO!
Use as a reference to quantify how ridiculous a female armor is.
For the record: the game refers to the context of wearing skimpy "armors" for battle (any other context, like cosplay, is excluded).
When using the bingo card, PLEASE stick to the Rules and Terms. Here's an excerpt from the rules:

Special thanks to everyone who agreed to consult me in creating this game! Ami from eschergirls, Tica from repair-her-armor, Ryan ‘Jabberwock’ C., Jenny Islander and many of my friends who want to remain unnamed. Your revisions were a big help!
Did I say hilarious? I meant depressing.
Not all squares on this bingo are supposed to be exclusive to bikini armor, but their absurdity and impracticality is always more prominent on a scantily clad lady than reasonably armored dude.
And the square you're referring to says specifically "Sharp ornamental edges that can pierce skin.", as in the wearer's skin. We're not talking about any ridiculously pointy armor (like, say, Sauron's in the movies), we're talking about "armor" that's spiky and shows a lot of bare flesh vulnerable to those spikes.
unless you're aiming vertically right between her tits its about as much of a problem as on any chestpiece
being hit ?
By no means I disagree with you.
But when it comes to fictional "female" armor I'd rather be covered entirely in bookplates over, the standard issue greves pauldrons and metal bikini.
like, thongs, underboob and more skin/skimpy can be vulnerable for battle. If you see a character who made a BINGO there, 101% she wouldn't survive but if she did, it's probably her powers or complete luck
tbh, for how many characters I have seen with skimpy armor would made a lot of BINGOs
you know how bulky and big they are that I don't even know how they managed to carry it all throughout the adventure. SO that's kinda bit of the downside and also hOW do they even take them off or put it in again
you have great closing arguments probably 90% of the opposite side of the argument. Nice when someone so interested in the topic of women's armor.
and yet armor bikini may be justified. Rare but can.
Thanks for a fun table)
I'm so tired of seeing this awesome super badass male armor in games, and then seeing it on my female character and.... automatic boob windows and a school girl skirt!
At least I can find peace of mind in the fact that the moment anyone dumb enough to strut into battle in that like they're on a catwalk, it's sure fire that their panty-shot buns are gonna be dead!
.... Well, that and the fact that people who don't use magic are LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME!
Fortunately everyone adhered to my request, but some made weird answers, suggesting first that there's some "news value" to my work that makes it fair use or that I, by putting credit on those bingo cards, encourage sharing of the images around the internet (I do, but not for commercial purposes!). Someone else tried to put the onus on me by claiming I didn't left any instructions for use (which I will write down today).
As is "contact the authors before publishing their work and respect their copyrights" didn't go without saying.
