I had a chaotic neutral summoner whose eidolon looked like a cross between a lillend azata and a marilith demon. At higher levels she evolved into something that resembled a human headed lion (albeit with an unusually large tail that reflected her serpentine origins).

Since my eidolon at most levels basically looked like a female elf from the waist up, my male half-elf summoner did considerable research into solving the mermaid problem.
And I think I had one of the few summoners who actually insisted that his eidolon wear clothes.
I have yet to find the right game for it, but I've always wanted to play a summoner whose eidolon was a little cottage with a couple of super tiny people living in it, fishing and sitting on the front porch and what not. In combat the cottage comes up out of the ground a bit and attacks with a bunch of tentacle like roots. Eventually the thing gets big enough that others can walk inside, the little people cook and clean for guests, and the cottage flies around.
But... it's a pretty silly sort of thing, so it's not suitable for most games, and I could never make it work mechanically the way I want.
Used the quadruped base and built a proto-red-dragon, which mechanically functioned like a red scaly tiger with fiery claws, since I never quite got high enough level to make the wings work, and I don't think there was an option to actually give it a meaningful breath weapon.
As it was for a Kingmaker game, and the character may or may not have had some mysterious ties to the vanished Rorgavian king, who was associated with red dragons, it was all kind of thematic, more than strictly practical.

Not in the sense i suspect you mean the summoner was also female they had a sister/friend relationship. The armour comment was more to do with her having the paracomist and evolutionist archetype so the Eidolon may be wearing armour (adventuring) or normal clothes (downtime).
The theme was a wrath of the righteous campaign where shed been tranformed into an extremely powerful mage as a result of a demon ritual, they planned to make her a weapon but a group of riftwardens killed them and rescued her before they got to the corruption/minion part. Of course the riftwardens didnt entirely trust her so one took her own as an apprentice/someone he'd kill if she showed signs of demonic corruption. Being a rather lonely existence she created an imaginary sister/friend who then came to life (much to the consternation of her mentor). So the Eidolon wasn't the normal outer planar being but a manifestation of her own mind that developed its own personality and form as a result of her power funneled into it.
She was outgoing, friendly, had a bit of a temper and tended to view her sister as needing someone to drag them out so they could experience the world while also acting as her protector.
I haven't had a chance to play a summoner, but I've built an NPC summoner who was a heretical follower of Hastur. She worshipped a female aspect of Hastur, and modeled (and even named) her Eidolon after the Lady in Yellow.
The Lady in Yellow looked like a humanoid human covered in yellow wrappings with a golden scaled serpentine body from the waist down. She wields a glaive and when properly buffed is pretty tough.
Her summoner had some interesting choices for romantic partners but her Eidolon was not one of them.
Being that the summoner usually has a higher charisma than the eidolon, I would imagine it’s more likely for it to try to boink you.
In this case the summoner had an archetype which used int for spellcasting not cha so the Eidolons was better.
I realized being female wouldnt hinder most peoples boink an Eidolon so i specified sisters and provided background. The Eidolon may have vetted a potential boyfriend for her but neither wohld have been interested in dating the other.

Although eidolons start out with relatively low intelligence, they can still eventually figure things out. Since summoners can summon monsters for minutes rather than rounds per casting and eidolons know all of the languages that their masters do, my eidolon got jealous when she realized that she had suddenly learned to speak Celestial. "Who did you learn that language from?" she demanded from my summoner. My summoner had indeed been summoning bralani azatas for language lessons.
