Fanimaid 2012~
« on: December 08, 2011, 10:29:19 PM »

Hi guys,

So we're back again this year. Information can be found on the Fanime website

http://www.fanime.com

http://www.fanime.com/exhibits/fanimaid-cafe/tryout-information/

More information coming soon~

LAZY MIKEY SAYS COPYPA IS EASY MODE!

Feel free to leave any questions/comments/suggestions here. Please be mindful if you do though. Things like "You should have a butler cafe" and the such have been asked millions of times already. You can go through previous maid cafe threads to look.

So the 2nd (and last tryout unless something miraculous happens) are
going to be Saturday March 10th at the San Jose Convention at 10am. If
you don't know where this is, you better find out fast, because this
is where FanimeCon is being held. But just in case...

150 West San Carlos Street  San Jose, CA 95110

Specifically the meeting will be in the Hilton 2nd floor lobby.
There's a sitting area right up the stairs, turn right, and it'll be
on your left side.

The first tryouts were awesome and incredibly successful. Had
approximately 30 girls show up. I hope that twice as many girls show
up for the second tryouts!

To copy and paste from last try-outs
What to expect:
The try-outs are roughly like a short course on what a maid cafe is,
what we do at Fanimaid Cafe, and basic training on tasks we expect our
maids to be able to fulfill. Please dress to impress to show off your
personal style, and as it will be at AOD, we are okay with you being
in cosplay during the try-outs if you don't want to change your
clothing. Prepare a pen and a notebook in case you would like to take
notes and answers to any questions you may have.

Please hold any questions regarding hours, uniforms, and what have you
for the try-out, as we usually go over everything you need to know.

Other things to keep in mind.
Please be prompt. This is incredibly super amazingly important.

The meeting/tryouts may last anywhere as long as 4 hours, maybe longer
according to how many girls show up. So once again, please be prompt
and hopefully manage so you'll be able to be there the entire time.

If you attended the first meeting, please do not attend the 2nd
tryout. This confuses me. When I try to organize you, and you apply
twice, I get confused and spend too much time trying to decide if
you're the same girl, or two girls with the same name that look
incredibly similar. I don't like this... I really don't like this. So
I usually stop doing work at that point for a while.

Hope the lot of you show up. This year is going to be an amazing year.
The returning maids are incredibly hype. Staff has been working hard
to get everything ready with lots of new ideas. And a big lot of
awesome girls trying out. This group and a lot of these girls have
become some of the most important people to me. And each year it grows
and only becomes more important. Have fun at the meeting and good
luck.

Sincerely,
Mikey Pham FanimaidCafe Co-Head

Wow. So ever since Fanime staff has posted this less than two days ago. I've gotten nearly 30 emails asking to be added to the mailing list.

While nothing official, it looks like the first tryout will be near mid February, and the 2nd tryout will be in early March. Times/locations and everything else will be mailed out in the mailing list when they're finalized.

Thanks for all the interest in this!

Nope, not yet. Expect one within the next week. Staff has been discussing times and what not for tryouts and everything like that.

Hiiloo~~~

I signed up for the Fanimaid Tryouts and I would like to ask you something if you don't mind.
Do I still need to pay for registration if I make it through the tryouts?
I just want to make sure so I won't waste my money for paying to register if I can get into Fanime for free.

Thank you for taking the time to read this message.
Please and thank you.

Yes you do, even if you're accepted as a maid, you have to pay for your badge.

Sorry for asking this so early, but if we get accepted as a maid, will there be meetings April 9-13? There is an optional trip I need to decide if I should go or not :\

Nope not yet, when one does come out, similar info(but not all of the info) will posted here as well.

As a side note, wow, let's of girls are interested this year. This compromises my original idea of things. Must discuss with staff about how things are going to go for tryouts.

Hey there!  I was wondering if you could tell us what kinds of things to expect at tryouts.  Will they be just interviews, or some sort of practice run?

Edit:
As I was going through a few of the past fanimaid threads, I noticed that both tryouts are usually in San Jose due to convenience of scheduling the venue.  Do you think there will be a San Francisco tryout this year?  Going to SF is more convenient for me during the school year.  Also, are there usually at least 2 meetings in SF?  I realize it may be too soon to be asking these questions, so I apologize if I'm being pushy.

There will be a meeting in SF this year. At current point, there are two tryouts planned, one in SF, and one in SJ. If you haven't got emailed maidcafe at fanime dot com yet to join the mailing list, I suggest doing so now. I'm currently busy with ALA this weekend, but right after, lots of discussion will go on, and emails should go out probably this tuesday about meetings.

What to expect. Meetings are generally, a simple introduction of what is expected, and a short interview to get to know you a little bit.

So many emails about people interested in joining this year... lots of competition.
