Korea Kon Kicks out Sexy Booth Babes...

and boy were they sexy


In the category marked "lol wut?" a gaming convention in Korea, G-Star, asked two booth babes to leave the convention for excessively revealing cloths. The two women were clearly alluring, but were obviously not in a severe state of wardrobe withdrawal. I mean, only one of the two even consitutes as "mildly undressed" and she's still wearing pounds more than the kind of apparel anyone would wear to the beach. While I'm not up on my South Korean morality meter, I can't help but assume they still have public beaches and skimpy bathing suits in that country.
 
Anyway, Boobie McBoothBabe and her friend, Buttz were both representing NCSOFT at the time they were asked to leave the convention. A first time convention, G-Star states that they have the ability to enforce morality through multiple citations, leading to cutting power at the booth for non-compliance. Well, NCSOFT did not defend their hot professional models, but rather blamed the modeling agency, which supplied the outfits, for the outrage.
 
Hot girls being thrown out of conventions for being too attractive? I barely believe it myself.

@John_Martone: Yes it was around 03-04 (i dont really remember what exactly i guess i could find the PU it was mentioned in) there was this %hole who came and said the Boothbabes a demeaning to women and after that the E3 where kinda kicked out in the following years. with protests ofcourse

@Kelleth: what is the gender of said a-hole?
Kelleth moderator on Nov. 30, 2009 at 11:33 a.m.
@cfatalis: Man
 
Well i did find 2005 & 2006 E3 Power Unlimited books but they only had brief mentions so i think it before 2005 (one has God of War on the cover and the other Heavenly Sword funny lol)
Edit: i was wrong it was indeed 2006

I don't see that much of a problem here.  It's not like they were dress like this. 
 
 
 
 

 Which I don't think is a bad thing. ;)

@N15PCA: and not like those yoko cosplayer

@cfatalis: I don't remember if it was Yoko cosplayers, but there were two girls at TAF whose costumes would normally have bare midriffs, but they were wearing like a nylon bodysuit under 'em instead, as I recall.

@cfatalis: I agree i mean just look at them

Them people where jerks xP lucky they`re back :)
cfatalison Nov. 30, 2009 at 12:02 p.m.
@gia: i have seen some who go for the realistic approach, that is to go all the way, they didn't get commented at or booted
cfatalison Nov. 30, 2009 at 12:09 p.m.
@Kelleth: they were very much decent, in comicon there's this girl who dresses as as caren, to get how she look like, imagine a nun dress, without the habit and skirt , yes that
 
and there are others some of them even opt for plugsuits

It's pretty sexy, but I don't see it as too revealing. I've seen a lot worse, or better as one may see it. Though we are talking about the standard of another country.

I am so confuzzled right now. I read that story over 5 times now, but each time i read it as saying they had too little clothing on? My gods man it is cosplay! If they are wearing an outfit that consists of more fabric then that of a face cloth then it is too much! How can they have too little?

I dunno, they wouldn't pass muster at different anime cons [I know they'd probably need changes for our con]. Awesome costumes? Yes. But Black/Red girl's bra isn't terribly secure, and looks like it could escape at any moment.  Yellow girl doesn't look to have any panties on [just a thong-ish thing held together with tied yarn], which is a bit of a problem.  Most cons are family friendly.  If your chacha or your boobs are in danger of a surprise attack, reevaluate your wardrobe so you don't scare someone's mom or kid, or embarass yourself for all enternity by having your photo posted on some cosplay porn website. 
 
I'd say, make the black bra cover more area and have more material between the breasts and you'd be good, and with the second, wear panty hose or have them be more short like, and you solve much of the problem.   Keep in mind that Korea's social standards are way different then Japan and the US's.

 
Remember too, that hot babes aren't always the ones dressing this skimpy. Just look through People of Walmart, and imagine them cosplaying [why someone would wear a bra to walmart, I don't know]  http://www.peopleofwalmart.com/  YOU WILL NEVER UNSEE IT
