Something new is needed to invigorate things. Perhaps this is it.

There's a LOT going on behind the scenes right now so everyone please just be patient until we have everything set-up.

Just letting everyone know the plans for the Maid Cafe!:

-Sadly we can't do it this year BUT....we're already planning the first official maid cafe next year! We're working hard on getting everything up and running so no worries!
-Instead of the cafe this year, we're doing "Cosplay Karaoke", where we'll be promoting the maid cafe for next year. Please come check it out!

That's all we have for you today! Now I return you to your regularly scheduled forum lurking! Ha ha :D

AH! I will KARAOKE! Mos def! And I will certainly volunteer next year!

Here's an idea... could one day of the cafe be a Cosplay Cafe instead? Where the waitstaff could be anyone? So you could have Juliet, Ichimaru Gin, Suzumiya Haruhi and Edward Elric serving -IN CHARACTER-? =3

Oh! What type of Karaoke? Will it be anime songs, Japanese music, or a mix of easty and west popular music?

If there are Buck-Tick songs involved I will have to sing, no matter how badly. Ken Morioka songs, too, posibly. <3

And if it's east and west, then Badfinger! Or Cheep Trick! (they were popular in Japan and still have a devout following)

They do these at the Phoenix anime con, and the maid cafe's are a lot of fun. I cannot even imagine how long the line would be for one at ACEN.

^ yes absolutely!!! the games idea could be good :D if we cant work out food. it can be where the maids just spend time with the guests.
has acen had things like lolita tea parties? i have never looked into those things. but if acen has then maybe we can follow the same format if the tea parties have served food.

I actually usually organize a tea party for some lolitas that I know and we always have to have our tea/whathaveyou outside or not in the hotel because of the rules. I know there have been tea parties as like room parties as well to get around the food rule but that doesn't really help the maid cafe idea (unless we set up outside like someone suggested).

Aside from that...I would totally volenteer to be a maid! Even though I have no waitressing experience XD I've always wanted to work at one of these thigns just to see what it would be like ^_^

haha I'm really late for this post however I would still love to see what could happen with a maid cafe at ACen 2010!

Is this still happening? I would love to get involved and help out :) I'm not sure if the organizers have frequented maid cafes, but if not, I can definitely give you some advice as to what kind of rules the cafes usually have and what kind of activities you are allowed to do with the maids/prices.
Do you believe in something beautiful? Then get up and be it.

Is someone still organizing this? This topic seems to have been started before the '09 con and noticed the website also looked a bit bare. I would totally visit this panel if it happens. Unfortunately I won't be able to be a maid. :(

Yes I'm lazy so forgive if I state some thing already mentioned. because it sounds like a good idead. Actually it's starting to sound like a host club. I remember the pocky ban years back. Acen had to bann dealers from selling it because the hot dog got angry, saying they were taking his customers away. If you guys do this, it may have to be on donations rather selling it. Also you could try using a room in another hotel.

What if we only serve tea and cake/cupcakes? In order to be able to be a part of this, a girl would have to provide their own loli dress and a plate of baked good and or tea leaves/bags.


I mean, if someone wants to give a tip/donation, that's fine,and should not be enforced.

Back in September ( ?) XcausticXdollX was informed there was another group trying to get a maid cafe at acen. So they sent in a proposal and we sent in one. The other group won because they didn't need to use food (?) . Details on the whole thing are sketchy . All I know is that IF there is a Maid Cafe , someone else is managing it and there probably won't be any food. If anyone on staff has anything to add please do because the other party never posted on the forums about it.

Sorry for sounding like an elitist, but lolita dresses ≠ maid cosplay.

Well hopefully there will be others who aren't elitist and would accept tea from a loli rather than a maid?

idk because atm someone is making plans to have a lolita meet up and God know if it'll be at the same time frame.

That and the girl running Khaotic Kouture is asking for outfit donors.

Still, receiving tea from a lolita instead of a maid is kinda different.

That's kind of bogus that you guys did A LOT of planning and even ran the karaoke to promote something that was given to a group that did practically nothing. We don't even know who is doing it and such? Wow. They could've at least come into this topic to help out and plan. I've never seen anyone other than you guys bring it up and work for a maid cafe. (If they DID but the post was before '05, then never mind.) Besides, should it even be called a maid CAFE without food? They could've at least given you guys the benefit of compromise rather than snub you. I guess efforts for something all end up to nothing...

Any food served at an official ACEN event has to come from the Hyatt or the convention center it's in the con's contract. We all now how expensive food at both places is. That's why Acen will never a maid cafe in my opinion.

We did have an understanding of that. When the idea was proposed, we proposed with a food and non food option ( It really wouldn't be a cafe , but it would feel like one )

Maybe it could be a "Maid Game Center (cafe)" instead? While I've never been to an actual maid cafe, I'm pretty sure they play games with the customers and stage little photo-shoots.

sounds cute. I kind of want to do a replica of the stuffed animal cafe from Azumanga Daioh; too bad we can't sell our own plushes or else the vendors might get pissed, but maybe we could bring our favorite plushes to share, do trades , and have discussions about anime plushes.

that was in the proposal. There was also some stuff about maid performances and crafts but Nadia ( XcausticXdollX) and I still lost to another group. When the new group decides to show up on the forums I'd take any ideas to them though :3
