Big-time cosplayer Jessica Nigri...
Because a 'hot pink jumpsuit', a cosplayer girl was asked to leave this year Penny Arcade Expo.
Jessica Nigri is a professional cosplayer, who was recently hired to portray the protagonist of Lollipop Chainsaw. Well, apparently because a hot pink jumpsuit, she was asked to leave the show floor until she had changed out... but after she went back with her regular 'Juliet Starling' clothes she was asked to either change again, or leave the show entirely...
She was too hot for the show, apparently! Well.. actually, Penny Arcade has had a "no booth babe" policy at its expos.Word is that Jessica Nigri, a big-time cosplayer hired to portray the protagonist of Lollipop Chainsaw, was asked to leave PAX East yesterday. Why, you ask? Oh, I don't know. Maybe that hot pink jumpsuit with a "neckline" plunging to her crotch has something to do with it.
She's back today (here is Nigri, as Juliet Starling, at the Lollipop Chainsaw booth.) But Destructoid first reported that she was "asked to leave the show floor" until she had changed out of that pink outfit at right. But after changing back to the Juliet Starling costume, at left—which she had worn all Friday with no issue—she was asked to change again or leave the show entirely.
Nigri's Twitter feed does reference something like this. "Haha guys! I just had to tone down the costume!" she tweeted this morning.
Bad luck for her... and of course, for all PAX attenders!Robert Khoo, the president of business development for Penny Arcade, verified to Kotaku that Nigri was asked to change, or leave, because expo staff had received plenty of complaints about her attire, or lack of it.
Khoo said expo staff "notified the WB booth on Friday of our concerns regarding the costumes, and although there was some confusion initially about which outfit was appropriate ... they understood the situation."
