My piece is a piece of armor featuring, specifically a chest-plate which emits light. Is is inspired by some of my favorite female heroes, both real and fictional. Most notably, Joan of Arc, as well as the heroine of the film "Barbarella" - a space girl saving the universe using her female intuition and sex appeal. My armor is designed for a heroine who finds her strength from her heart, just as my own "sheros" have. My heroine is as capable and intelligent as any man, while remaining compassionate and true to herself.
