PAX East 12: Lollipop Chainsaw Costume Deemed Too Sexy
The provocative Suda 51 title Lollipop Chainsaw cosplayer was deemed too sexy for PAX East 2012. According to Destructoid, official cosplayer Jessica Nigri was asked to change outfits twice or else leave the venue.
On the second day of the event, Jessica doned the figure hugging pink jump suit with exposed cleavage, one of the many costumes available in-game to cheerleading heroin Juliet Starling.
Although the outfit does replicate the in-game costume perfectly, PAX East organisers felt it showed a little too much skin to their liking. She was asked to either change attire or leave, prompting her to switch back to her Juliet Starling cheerleader costume which she wore on the first day of the event.
Despite wearing it a day earlier without any controversy, PAX East officials were still not happy with the San Romero Knights tank top and short skirt combo. In the end Jessica switched into a Lollipop Chainsaw logo rolled-up t-shirt, leggings and short shorts (as below), appeasing the PAX East nanny squad.
For a title as raunchy as Lollipop Chainsaw, Jessica did an amazing job to capture the essence of Juliet Starling but is her costume too sexy for the eyes of convention guests? You be the judge for yourself.
