Getting the magic armor is quite the little sidequest. You can initially find it in the Overpriced Store in Castle Town for an unreachable 10,000 rupees. Since you can never hold that many, we need to lower the price.
After obtaining the Master Sword (you may also have to complete the Arbiters Grounds. Some people do, some don't), go to Kakariko Village. Donate money to the Goron in Malo Mart. The want 1000 rupees to fix the bridge. Don't give them a rupee over 1000, however. Once you've donated it, talk to the old Goron outside the store. He'll ask you to take a barrel of spring water to a waiting Goron in Castle Town. Say yes and prepare to run.
Malo Mart Fund Drive
Out in the field, don't run straight for Castle Town! The Leevers will hit you and break the barrel. Rather, hug the edges of the field, stopping every time you see a Bolblin archer to put down the barrel and snipe him really fast (you should only run into 2 total). Once you get to Castle Town's entrance, the Goron is waiting and tells you to throw the barrel on him Z-Target and throw it.
Stay along the edge
He'll be reenergized and open up shop in Castle Town, dropping a heart piece as he passes.
Go back to Kakariko Village with around 300 rupees. Go into Malo Mart to learn the next donation lowered from 2000 to 200, so give them that to open shop in Castle Town.
They must have gotten a donation from the Goron
Warp back to Castle Town. Go to the Overpriced store in towns center to find that it has been taken over by Malo Mart. The Magic Armor costs 598 rupees, just under what you can currently carry. You don't need it right now, but if you feel so inclined, you can sell off the rest of your bugs and buy the armor.
The Overpriced shop is no more
