In the middle of the presentation, Laura takes off her skirt and shows off a bit more of the leotard that 2B also wears in the game, making her the host. Lou Himura Be amazed and shout out phrases like “Age group, female!” and “Help me, Jesus!”. As a sign of solidarity, other cosplayers came out to support Louisa:
About this stupid 2B cosplay from a girl from anime friends: The cosplay was a pica, full and yes 2B in just a leotard/swimsuit underneath. And the girl didn’t express herself in a sensual way when she took off her skirt, it just existed and I would say more, a fuss+ pic.twitter.com/7nD1GSHbnb

After the situation went viral, host Lou Himura also issued a public statement apologizing to the cosplayer for possible embarrassment on stage, assuring that the controversy has been resolved and that he and Louise are now on good terms:
This post is for Louise Rome. @ luisaroma10
I know we talked and there is nothing between us. But since the matter is public, I have an obligation to say what I told you in pvt, about TM as well.
I’m sorry, I never meant to embarrass you. +

In the end, Luisa Roma still managed to take second place in the competition, impressing the judges with the weapons and clothing she built herself. And now, despite the various attacks that he has also suffered on the nets, at least we have a great opportunity to learn more and respect his wonderful work!
