It’s what drow (and elven in general) armors have always been based on: less the actual protection, more the stun effect of the opposite gender staring and gaping with their mouths open, making them easy kills.
Therefore bright colours, daring cuts, form enhancing designs and silky fabrics have always been on top of the armory list. The illusion of armor can be achieved by adding pieces of beautifully smithed metal into areas that do not cover anything strategically sexual, like shoulders and arms.
The more serious soldiers might even pass the traditional stiletto heels and wear pragmatic stompers instead, but only if they are sufficiently gorgeously crafted. Balancing the look with enough eyecatchers slightly higher will guarantee the successful stun effect.
The skin by Fallen Gods Inc., the hair by Analog Dog and the pauldrons, bracers and the boots by [The Forge] are all available in the current round of We Love Role-play Event. The necklace by [The Forge] that the drow is using as an improvised headband/crown can be won in Fantasy Gacha Carnival. Despite astonishing match I must put an extra disclaimer on the system layers and the coat tails: the outfit is by Bare@Rose, one of my old favourites. It simply worked so perfectly with the armor bits that I had to combine the two.
