A dress that is lightly to heavily armored, and thus would fit in either a social gala or an epic melee. The form of the dress can range from a fancy dress accessorized with armor and/or weapons (even if it also has typical dress trimmings), to basically a suit of armor with a skirt.
The point of this dress seems to be a combination of Rule of Glamorous
and Rule of Cool
, as such an outfit will almost always be Impossibly Cool Clothes
Naturally the ladies wearing these kinds of dresses are almost always Action Girls
, Ladies Of War
and sometimes even Badass Princesses
. If any other girl ends up wearing this, expect her to fall over almost immediately, if she can even move.
