A badass female warrior with cute feminine traits
You know… what's there to say that the Major from Ghost in the Shell doesn't collect plushies?
Or that Re-l from Ergo Proxy doesn't cry during soap operas?
Ever notice how badass female warriors, gunslingers, and heroes tend to have this dark, tomboyish, serious personality? Wouldn't it be nice to see a badass female character, who still have comically feminine traits about her.

Most of those "badass female warriors" you're referring to are typically of the hardcore variety. Motoko and Re-l are put into situations where they would essentially be acting out of character if they did any of that girlish stuff.
But there still plenty of popular female characters who are both badass and feminine. Most of them are moÃ©, though - thnk Saber and Holo.
Mikoto Misaka from A Certain Scientific Railgun sounds right up your alley. ~_^
