Cosplayer Ashley Riot! planned to show off her Street Fighter 5 Cammy cosplay at CEO this weekend, but ran into some trouble with the powers that be, and was forced to cover up her lower half with a pair of leggings.

As an extremely popular character in the Street Fighter franchise, it's no secret that Cammy White's traditional outfit shows off more than a little leg. Perhaps the most cosplayed Street Fighter character, most of the community is pretty used to seeing Cammy outfits at events.

Apparently, at least one individual was uncomfortable with Riot!'s outfit at CEO, and the hotel staff stepped forward to police the situation:

Tournament organizer Alex Jebailey commented on the matter on his Twitter.
Naturally, this caused quite a stir as people began reacting on social media. When the tweets started rolling in asking Jebailey for more specifics on why this happened, he clarified that it was not his decision, and that his hands are tied:

"[T]hat was the hotel management's call and out of my control," he expressed via Twitter.

Though she won't be able to show off her work at CEO, you can still check out Ashley's amazing costumes, including her Cammy without leggings, on Facebook page, or on her website.
