So, I gave cyberpunk Mulan another go:
I'm already way happier with this direction: I got the face to actually appear feminine, and at least sort of Chinese. Also, her gaze is pointed at the viewer, instead of needlessly off to the side. I kept the power armor pretty much the same, but thinner in the waist as compared to the hips. The helmet section unfolding shows off some of the visor interior, as well as her completely non-regulation haircut.
