Becoming Jessica Nigri Promo

RT Docs: Becoming Jessica Nigri Promo

Jessica Nigri is an internationally renowned cosplayer, racking up millions of social media followers and the number one Patreon page in cosplay. Becoming Jessica Nigri explores her life, from a magical childhood growing up with quirky parents in New Zealand, to entering middle school in the U.S. where she was mercilessly teased for her “nerdy” interests. Through cosplay, Jessica learned that becoming someone else gives her the courage to be herself.

      As far as I am aware she is just her own take on a Sith Lord and not a named character.

      Just ask yourself one important question.  Who's getting the money from that little star next to your name?  If you're going to get so much sand in your mangina over who RT employ you can always stop subscribing, fuck off and start posting on Return Of Kings instead.

      Woah woah guys please. This person clearly is being misinterpreted when they said the "As if RT couldn't suck Nigri's dick any more". He clearly was trying to say "I am upset at my current state of life and so I must attack others in order for me to feel a tiny bit better". The part in which he says "RT employess (yes he did spell it like that) sure do love those Patreon sluts", he meant that "I am 12 years old and I have only seen a girls boob once and yah it might have been an accident but it counts and you bet I have totally had so much sex you couldn't even believe".

    Documentaries are great when they're in favour of the person. Too bad the rest of their reality isn't shown like dodgy sponsorship dealings, lies and laziness. Enjoy everyone!

    honestly, never liked jessica until she started doing rt stuff.  thought she was just another cosplayer using her body to get attention.  but holy fuck, was i a judgmental asshole!  love her energy, love her work, and she is such a genuinely kind person!  so, so, so glad i see her as the person she really is.  really excited to see this doc!

      A lot of people consider what she does "Titty cosplay" With no real vision or skill, just tits. (Which i can agree with to some extent, Google her Pikachu cosplay. and basically all her Pokemon Cosplays. Which is basically just bikinis with pokemon color scheme and some baubles.) But look at that Alexstraza Cosplay, it is amazing. And for "vision" check out her Sindragosa, where she has looked at Alexstraza, Ysear, and Deathwing, and created what the human form of Sindragosa would look like. And it is amazing. So is her Genderbend Deathwing. It really really looks like what Blizzard might design if they changed Deathwings Gender. 

      Some have claimed she doesn't make her own stuff. Which is a straight up lie. Some don't like her because she gets too much focus. Which is just what happens when you're attractive, funny, charismatic, and make good Cosplay.

      I agree, I dislike some of her sexier cosplays, character cosplays don't need to be the sexy version to be cool.  I prefer the more traditional just straightforward representation of the characters. But, her handiwork with the costumes and her skill as an artist are not to be understated.

      Yeah she's definitely a titty cosplayer but everyone who doesn't like her has to admit the costumes are amazing

      @Shebby I think the difference between her and most "Titty Cosplayers" is that sure, she does Titty Cosplay, but the ones that aren't, and some that are, are fucking top of the line class Cosplays, to such an extent that you can't call her a Titty Cosplayer, More like occasional titty cosplayer. 

      and @JekyllandHyde I have to agree, it's cool for the ones where you can see the inspiration, and see the reasoning and it makes sense. again, like Sindragosa, because it models on Alexstraza and Ysera, or the Junkrat, because sure, it's sexy, but Junkrat is skinny, muscled, and runs around basically naked, so when you genderbend it it makes ense. But Then you have her Reinhardt Cosplay. Which is AMAZINGLY well done... but why is the midriff bare? like there is no reason for that besides an attempt at making an unsexy character sexy.

      It's clear that putting Nigri down is like being mad that somebody else is happy. She digs her life so completely (and all the 'nerdom' it embraces) that it puts the burden of judgement on the viewer.


      We should all take a page from her book and shine as bright as we can.


      Life's too short to waste time on hate anyway.


      CHEERS!
