Looking for ideas for female characters that wear armour.

Hey guys!
I'm looking for ideas for armour costumes for female characters.
I've previously done a Wonder Woman costume with armour (a not so great first attempt), and I just got my hands on a roll of worbla.
I was thinking of making a Lady Sif costume (Thor 2) but I think the chainmail may be a bit of a problem.
I would prefer something covering as I'm not comfortable enough with my weight to consider showing my tummy.
I'm just at a mental blank here and I would love some suggestions

Ooh Samus! Great idea
I'm not sure why but I thought armour and I only thought medieval/fantasy type stuff
Thanks for the suggestion!

My favorite female-in-armor from the Magic the Gathering card game is Elspeth

My first thought was Saber from Fate/Staynight.
There are also lots of girls from Fire Emblem that wear armor. The only ones I can think of off of the top of my head are Cordelia, Sully and Sumia.
Working on...
Natsume(Tokyo Ravens)|Wukong Gudako(Fate/Grand Order)|Ibaraki(Fate/Grand Order)|Ruler Martha(Fate/Grand Order)|Player Character(Pokemon Sun/Moon)

If you're looking at something in anime, go for Erza Scarlet, because basically all of her outfits are armour and there's great selection if you want to do a lot, or only a little
Also you can find some female characters from League of Legends with some good armour (Fiora is a good bet)
Eowyn from Lord of the Rings when she goes into battle maybe ? though there is quite a bit of chainmail there
Hope this helps (:
