Inquiry about Maid Cafe
« on: February 17, 2008, 11:55:23 PM »

Hi All,

I just wanted to simply ask if there has been any updates regarding Maid Cafe OR if there is an official thread about it. I just want to know the requirements of being able to volunteer as a Maid and if there were any announcements about it.

Anyone who has volunteered before, please tell us about your experiences!!! And how you went about being a Maid. I am interested to read how people fared from last year.


So, please keep this topic, simple and clean-- NO Hostile Debate/Argument, or I will report you IMMEDIATELY! I read the last topic regarding Maid Cafe and one simple question turned into a heated debate that was locked by an Admin. Please keep this thread friendly so people can come and read it. Be considerate and respectful!  :) Thank you all!

Unfortunately things are going a little slow in the higher/corporate-y areas, and that's causing some delays at the department and volunteer levels. You may want to contact maidcafe@fanime.com to let them know you're interested; they'll likely contact you once things get up to speed!

you know how that could be  :P

Actually, we just recently got the food contract and floor plan squared away, so maid selection and training should be  starting soon! We'll probably have official announcements of when and where that's going to happen on the forum, so check back...

So I did email Maid Cafe. I am waiting for a reply. Is there any more info? Because Fanime is coming close, and I want to know what the requirements are and schedule it ^^

Yes, I would also like to know what the requirements are for volunteering at the Maid Cafe :) Does anyone know when any updates or announcements might be made? Since Fanime's getting closer and closer, I want to be able to plan for this accordingly ^-^

I wasn't a maid (for obvious reasons), but I was a Butler.

We butlers had a pretty good job; just keep an eye on things, see if anyone wanted anything, stay on patrol, and even take pictures every so often. A nice job, I MIGHT do it again. Then again, things may be different this time, so... we'll have to see.

OK, I would like to volunteer as a maid as well, but my mother is not allowing me yet (she is worried about the customers and uniform skirt lengths)  If one is provided, what does the uniform look like, and what kind of people eat at the cafe?  And, is there any sort of age restriction?  Thanks!

I think the age restriction was 15 or 16+ I cant quite remember, but you had to get a parent consent if you are under 18. Uniforms arent decided yet, you will have to pay for it. and well almost every con goer eat at a cafe =\ it is open to the con/general public so you will get almost every type of person

thats what i can recall, and theres another maid cafe thread mentioning alot of these things in the live programing event section

Just a reminder, that any information posted in here that is not from me, Sydney, any other Maid Cafe staff, or our superiors, should not be taken as official information. An email has gone out containing information, and I am available to answer questions you may have in the thread on Live Programming Events.

Augh, late to the first meeting but will definitely be there this weekend.

For those that weren't around to pick up the handouts at the last minute, and cannot make it to the next meeting, I'll get e-mails from Sydney and forward the documents to you. Or uh, e-mail me if you were there at the first meeting and didn't get them (at cirque.du.misfortune@gmail.com) and I could forward that to Sydney. For those attending the next meeting, all paper documents will be received and reviewed throughout the meeting. From what I know, progress is going pretty well. Remember to do your best. =o

@Jerry: Sorry again for getting lost.

No Worries, according to some people's opinions I wasnt even suppose to be there.  :P

Besides, a maid dress would totally make me look fat, considering my horrible figure. >_<
That plus I'm WAY top heavy too.  :-[
