I was thinking about the upcoming summer festival season, convention season, Renaissance faires, and of course, it’s never to early to plan your Halloween costume. And it dawned on me: this past year has been ALL about the woman warrior. From the Dora Milaje in Black Panther to Wonder Woman to Captain Phasma to Tessa Thompson’s epic Valkyrie, bad-ass women in armor are where it’s at.
So I went a-hunting for some not-too-revealing, super kick-ass woman warrior costumes and armor for all your LARPing, convention, Ren faire, cosplay, or sexy role play needs. Here are some of the best I found…

Vikings & Valkyrie costumes
Xena Warrior Princess costumes
Straight-up fantasy costumes

…and to think that when I was but a wee lass, the only girls’ costumes in the Sears Wish Book were:
I would have killed for some of these Badass Babes costumes.
Don’t limit it to costumes! There was some beautiful armor inspired fashion at the MET Gala. While couture chainmail may be out of most people’s price range, there are some affordable options inspired by the look. Pair them with some leather bracers or shoulder pieces and you can be as amazing as Zendaya.
