A compromise. High heels were invented in medieval times so that Horsemen could ride horses easier. Then girls wanted to be more manly, so they wore them for centuries, and since girls looked hotter in them, and the fact that no one remembered this, high heels became widespread.

you do realize that her thighs are exposed right? adn that as a templar who has strong connections to the church would be either flogged or beatean for exposing them? no self respecting women wouldd go into battle with her thighs exposed.

Their are major arteries there and it is just asking for a dagger cut or an arrow to go through them

And maybe some plate on the outside, to deflect the strikes glancing off the torso armor.
Which is a good one, by the way.

The peter pan getaway boots are just cute... 
I don't think you would find an example of those!
But if I had ANY complaint...it would not be the armour. 
Half of Europe was trying to make every armour different from the last one!

No...its that stupid weapon.  Obviously this girl is only three feet high!

Parade armour became popular mosty after guns were invented.  No parade armour was made to be fought in...it was too light to actually function AS armour.  (though of course, there were times...) Because it was made to be seen, not used, it was often wildly elabourate, sometimes pretty odd.  There are HUNDREDS of examples of armour just like the one above which were histrically accurate...though of course they would never go bare legged.  They would wear wear hosen.  And women are not part of that exclusive armour wearing club.   Anybody who bothers to walk through a real armour gallery in, say Malta, Leeds or Vienna would see that men on horseback with half armour. The knees and shins...very rare.  Boots...never. 

Could this armour exist?  Well, we are looking at two armours now arn't we.  The legs don't go with a chain mail top.  So would it exist...  Oh, certainly it exists.  And of course, you would no more fight in it than you would race around a race track in a Cadillac Motor Car.   Such armour is made to see and be seen in.

So as a professional Armour Maker myself, I see a young girl dressing up in her brothers armour, and the odd flares are easily no different from some of the wild Rococco stuff which is actually "period" .  Some have bitched about the high heels.  High heels, again, are period, but only for men.   And you need heels of some kind to be able to ride.  D type stirrups need heeled shoes.  So not even the high heels gets dissed here!
 

So those who complain about this not being a "fighting armour", well, that is not its function.  This armour certainly does exist, and was used.  But not for fighting.
