Wear something like this, you die.
The entertaining and educational video explains why. Well worth your time watching.“It’s one of the worst pieces of wannabe armour that Hollywood has ever seen …”, says the video review of the heroine’s armour below from the movie Thor.
Minute 1:50 — “If you would get a strike on the shoulder, the [opponent’s] sword would just slide off and directly chop her head off”.
Mr SnapJelly the videomaker explains (I’ve paraphrased below):
Her chain mail is too short and furthermore worn in close fit without padding, which means the vest should rightly chafe her skin off.
Meanwhile the “weird” chest plate is fashioned with a cleavage bustline like Victoria’s Secret, hahaha.
Her unprotected arms can be easily hacked off … even a six-year-old role-playing Conan the Barbarian can see that. Another vulnerable spot is her exposed armpits begging to be lanced or speared.
And her legs are clad in what? Skinny jeans?! Oh okay, why wear armour when sword strikes will simply bounce off denim … now we know.
Delusional. She’s a Dapster!
