Updated: Question: Should A Cosplayer Be Kicked Out Of PAX East For Doing Her Job?

Day 1 Left, Day 2 Right
Just to be clear, Jessica Nigri was asked to leave and change, she was allowed back in... But on day 1 of PAX east, she went dressed as Lollipop Chainsaw's star, Juliet Starling, without issue. Day 2 she went dressed as the same character in one of the multiple alt costumes and asked to leave to change. She returned in the cheerleader uniform from day 1 she was asked to change again, cover up, or leave entirely! Did I mention she was at the WB Games booth and is the official character model for the game? So what's the point of this post? Most of the Grotto staff come from a place in the US where people can go grocery shopping wearing A LOT less than what Nigri had on! Now if she were dressed in one of the alternate costumes from Dead or Alive Extreme Beach Volleyball, then I can understand the issue.

What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments below or on Google+ and after the break, see Nigri's Day 3 costume!

Updated 4/9/2012: Added a side by side of the costume in question with the in game variant.

Not as revealing as the last 2, but still game themed.
Left: Juliet Alt Costume from the game. Right: Jessica Nigri wearing the same thing

  1. I think it's ridiculous. She's FAR from being inappropriate. Not to mention she was a model for the BOOTH! I've seen worse at SDCC.
