Jessica Nigri, Lollipop Chainsaw's official Juliette Starling, was too hot for Pax

Jessica Nigri, Lollipop Chainsaw's official Juliette Starling Having been cast as the real-life Juliette Starling means Jessica Nigri's schedule filled quickly with appearances at expos, trade shows and any venue requiring a cheerleading zombie killer with a flair for pink. That's the life of being the star of Lollipop Chainsaw.

Word has it that her pink costume's V-neck was a bit too risque for Pax attendees - forcing her to revert to a less revealing costume. What has the world come to when a gorgeous cheerleader is asked to leave an event for being too revealing. Is there such a thing? Don't cheerleaders have free reign to be as sexy and revealing as need be? I guess one has to draw the line when a plunging neck-line goes south of one's waist-line.

Apparently, Pax-goers complained quite a bit about the Juliette costume and Ms. Nigri was asked to change or leave. Apparently, Penny Arcade has a "no booth babe" policy at its expos in an effort to squelch the bimbo-factor. We agree with this policy as far as bimbos go. Sexy is good, but "smart" always trumps skimpy clothing (yeah, we really believe this). As long as the the booth babes know the product and represent it, as opposed to simply standing around, we're down with that!
