In the worst news we’ve heard all day, PAX is joining E3 in banning booth babes from their future events.
In a recent statement, PAX announced:
Booth babes are defined as staff of ANY gender used by exhibitors to promote their products at PAX by using overtly sexual or suggestive methods. Partial nudity, the aggressive display of cleavage and the navel, and shorts/skirts higher than 4” above the knee are not allowed. If for any reason an exhibit and/or its contents are deemed objectionable to PAX management, the exhibitor will be asked to alter the attire of its staff.
Cosplayed characters that are playable in-game are an exception to this rule (within reason), and exhibitors must obtain permission from show management prior to the show.
If for any reason an exhibit and/or its contents are deemed objectionable to PAX management, the exhibitor will be asked to alter the attire of its staff or remove those staff from the show.”
First it’s booth babes, then it’ll be cosplay models. We can’t stand for this injustice! If they don’t go, we don’t go, nor do about 987489327984234 attendees who come specifically to see them.
