Rock guru Kim Fowley put together an all-female rock band in 1975, and Lita was the choice for lead guitar. They named the band "The Runaways," and its success is considered a seminal moment in rock history.

Playing up their nubile good looks, the girls were an immediate hit and toured throughout the remainder of the 1970s. Differences over what type of music to play led to the band's breakup in April 1979.

Setting out on a solo career, Lita released "Out for Blood" in 1983 and "Dancin' on the Edge" the following year. Ford began amping up the leather sexuality, and soon she began recouping her fans. She became a top tour act of the late '70s with her sweat-drenched leather girl act going over well.

Lita took some time off in the '90s to raise her two sons, then returned in the 2000s with a vengeance. "Wicked Wonderland" in 2009 did not set the world on fire, but fans loved it. "Living Like a Runaway" in 2012 was more of a return to the good old times, though it did not chart either.

Lita Ford retains her trademark leather look to this day, and continues to grind out the tunes that made her famous.

Jessica Nigri, Hottest Girl in Cosplay


Jessica Nigri Cosplay celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com
Jessica Nigri.

Jessica Nigri (born August 5, 1989) is an American model (actually born in New Zealand) who has carved out a niche for herself as a cosplay celebrity, voice actress, promotional model and fan convention interview correspondent. If there is any single cosplayer who dominates the field of cosplay - it is Jessica Nigri.

If you don't know what cosplay is, that's ok, it's kind of a "subculture" of video games: it is "costume play," a hobby in which participants wear costumes and fashion accessories to represent a specific character or idea that is usually identified with a unique name. One way to think about it is that, for cosplayers, everyday is Halloween. Cosplayers go to conventions such as the San Diego Comic-Con to portray their characters.

Most typically, cosplay costumes are of video game or fairytale character, though they can be movie characters, movie stars or just about anyone that is recognizable. There are no set rules, and creativity reigns.

Jessica Nigri Cosplay celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Jessica takes a lot of pride in her costumes. She made her first costumes herself, buying the material and sewing them together.

Jessica was born in Reno, Nevada (some sources say Phoenix, Arizona), but grew up in New Zealand. She moved back to Arizona at the age of 12 (got a condo made 'a stone-uh).

Jessica first began dressing up ("cosplaying") in 2009, when she went to Comic-Con in San Diego and was a hit in her "Sexy Pikachu" costume. It was her own idea to go - she just did it.

This appearance led to various promotional opportunities for Jessica to represent the Gears of War and GameStop brands. Later, Warner Bros. Games hired Jessica as a spokesmodel.

Jessica's career has not been without controversy. Sometimes, Jessica's costumes have pushed the envelope and been deemed "too revealing" by some of the women who attend these events. Jessica has had some issues with convention organizers as a result. However, as a general matter, conventions are more than happy to have Jessica Nigri appear - as long as she tones down her costumes.

Some of Jessica's more famous characters:
Sonya Blade (Mortal Kombat)
Juliet Starling (Lollipop Chainsaw)
Vivienne Squall (KILLER IS DEAD)
Cinder Fall
Miss Monday
Captain Edward Kenway (female version) (Assassin's Creed IV)
Jessica is a fixture within the cosplay world, and folks who attend the conventions and so forth instantly recognize her. The fact that she is a shapely and comely girl doesn't hurt a bit, especially since she has the figure and "look" of many video game heroines.

Jessica's true love is marketing and advertising, which she has indicated she eventually will do full-time. For now, with her good looks, Jessica Nigri has many more years of modelling and cosplaying ahead of her.

Jessica considers herself a gamer, and claims that she has played video games since she was a child. There's nothing at all unusual about that, of course, but most video gamers don't grow up to portray video game heroes in real life.

Jessica likes to portray female versions of male characters in video games. Apparently, she came up with that idea herself.

Jessica is good friends with fellow cosplayer Yaya Han, the host of Syfy's "Heroes of Cosplay." However, Syfy, for marketing reasons, promotes a "feud" between the two.

Jessica has become a major force in voicing video game characters. She has voiced Cinder Fall on Monty Oum's RWBY: Volume 1, RWBY: Volume 2, RWBY: Volume 3, RWBY: Volume 4, the television series RWBY, and RWBY Chibi. She also has done stunts for the series via motion capture.

Cosplay to me means friendship. It means finding other people who totally dig what you dig and getting along because of the intense amount of likeness between the different groups of people. As far as describing myself as a cosplayer? I would say I am very new and laid back. I still have so much to learn.
