Lollipop Chainsaw

Would you kick the woman above out of your convention for being too sexy? This is reportedly what happened over the weekend at PAX East 2012, when Lollipop Chainsaw spokes-model Jessica Nigri was asked to leave the show floor until she changed out of a revealing outfit.

The outfit in question is below the "Read More" tag, courtesy of Lollipop Chainsaw creator Suda51's Twitter feed.

The costume change wasn't enough, apparently. After she changed back to her regular Juliet Starling clothes (shown above) she was asked to either change again, or leave the show entirely. Bye, Bye, Juliet.

Nigri wasn't the only scantily clad PAX-goer who was asked to cover up. Comedian Keith Apicary -- aka Nathan Barnatt -- took the stage during Rooster Teeth's panel, disrobed, and danced around for a bit, much to the confusion of everyone on earth. There's a picture below, and if you really, really want to, you can look at the video on YouTube, or even see the aftermath of him being kicked out of the show by the actual police.

My question: Is this good "moderating" by the PAX powers-that-be, or is everyone's Pax experience made a bit more magical by exhibitionists of various stripes strutting their stuff? I have mixed feelings: I guess if fans like Apicary want to be extra wacky and take off their pants, I think "Yeah! I love freakishness! Let the guy be!" but when it's a transparent plan to garner attention, and PAX has made its anti-booth-babe policy well known, I support kicking people out.

Don't get me wrong; I love boothbabes, but PAX has a clear policy of not supporting 'em. So you gotta respect the rules... of course, the first rule of PAX is "Don't do anything stupid," and it could be argued that crashing a panel and taking off your clothes is really, really stupid.

All of the best people are following Stephen Johnson's twitter feed. Also, email me if you wanna.
