Champions and Heroes: Unisex clothing by Ddriana Champions and Heroes: Unisex clothing by Ddriana
Here's a tip, game developers: Few things make women feel less welcome in the gaming community as unnecessary sexualisation of female characters (especially player characters).
I want to be able (but not forced) to flirt and ho through a game, it's true, but if I'm an agent of the Empire and NOT undercover as a stripper there is no reason why you should make my clothes stripperific. There's been quite a few armors that I refused to use because flaunting my stomach is NOT professional. You know. If you're an imperial agent. I'm sure it's very professional for working ladies in the Republic. But you know how THEY are...

That being said. I took a long break from Star Wars: the old republic. I got stuck on the final battle and I took great offense. But I miss Sha, and the chiss, and the frustration that I never got to seduce Chance to the Empire's side. So I have since bought another month of play and gotten past that and finished the agent's story. Ending is rather underwhelming, but the story overall is great.

Champions and Heroes is a collaboration with Sullivan's player :iconclueedo: and can also be found here championsandheroes.smackjeeves… and on tumblr

Star Wars the Old Republic is Bioware and Lucas arts and... etc etc

There's at least one "armour" set (available through cartel packs or the GTN) that goes the opposite way.
Put it on a male character (i.e. Torian), they have a sexy bare torso. Put it on a female character, and suddenly there's extra fabric to conceal the breasts... because of the double standard on bare chests of course :shrug:

Well, I wouldn't personally consider that truly equivalent. It's more an 'armor' set that is equally ridiculous and likely more at home at the beach than in a fight, rather than one fully clothed and one sexualized :/

All I want is armor that protects and protects equally regardless of presence of breasts or not, for the sake of immersion and logic TAT

Indeed. It might fit for Force Users because they have lightsabres to deflect incoming fire, but for the normal people in the Star Wars universe, it is indeed rather stupid... female version strikes me as more clubbing gear than beach gear, but still not appropriate battle gear for troopers, agents, or hunters. Smugglers don't usually go looking for trouble so they can sort of get away with dressing to distract.

Black Talon chest piece for Bounty Hunters is my favourite. Looks cool, protects well, doesn't sexualise, and best of all, it can be modified. Threlis wore it all the way from level 11 to level 55, and she's never taking it off. I just love the white and blue colour scheme on it.

ah yes one of my better pieces of armor had a mid riff, I decided to just upgrade the robes I got earlier and wear them again.

So very true. All women should have the option to use Aveline's armor.
Also, it's NOT COOL to NOT be able to choose your companions armors in DAII.
Ddriana Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2012
Yeah, Aveline's armor... hell, Aveline overall, is just... glorious and a joy to have in your game.

Well, I'd be alright with the design not changing, but damnit, I have all these fantastic shoes for mages and I'm a rogue! SOMEONE WEAR THEM D<
