Jessica Nigri—the cosplayer hired to portray Juliet Darling from the upcoming Lollipop Chainsaw—was asked by PAX officials on Saturday to change out of the pink outfit you see on the right. Numerous complaints were reportedly made, possibly about the fact that her breasts looked about ready to pop out. PAX East is a family-friendly show, after all, and not even booth babes are allowed.
Booth representatives are allowed to wear costumes as long as they have something to do with the actual game, but Nigri's was apparently deemed too racy. The confusion occurred when she was once again asked to change, or get out, this time after returning in the Lollipop Chainsaw outfit, which she had already been wearing.
"Although the policies regarding appropriate attire are clearly laid out in our exhibitor rules, there are times when edge cases like Lollipop Chainsaw, which technically is allowed since it's the main character in the game, pop up," Penny Arcade's Robert Khoo told Kotaku. "For scenarios like that, we need to make a judgment call, and a big factor for this one was looking at the number of complaints we had received."
Apparently there were a lot. Do you agree with their decision to force her to change? Let us know what you think in the comments or on Twitter. Nigri is the offical cosplayer for Lollipop Chainsaw—check out one of her videos below.
