Julia Krantz, a fashion designer from Sweden, has created this all-white protective suit for a project entitled Whiteness. This Julia Krantz armor is like the anti-riot suit designed for the protester standing in front of the riot police who are normally decked out in all-black gear.

This Julia Krantz suit features a face mask to hide the wearer’s identity, makeshift protective headgear, and loops of armor protecting the upper torso. This armor looks completely badass and I bet no one would want to mess with a woman marching down the streets wearing this. Also, the extra height added by the platform boots makes this riot-ready lady as tall and powerful-looking as any fierce Amazonian warrior. If she was a comic book character, Wonder Woman would have some serious competition. Stats for Badass Riot Suits Trending: Older & Mild
