Thanks for being so patient girls! I know I said that we would probably be sending out emails last week, but due to busy schedules and coordinating a bunch of things it got pushed back. Rest assured that emails will be sent out in the upcoming days though! Looking forward to hear back from you!

We are aiming for by the end of next week. Please be patient as we have a lot of applicants to go through. Like I said, you'll be getting a notification in your email soon enough!

If I were you, I will try my best to be the first one there, so that they would interview you first, so that you could then go where you need to go.

There's an interview?! O_O""" do we need to bring a resume?...

No need to bring a resume at all. What we do recommend you bring though is a notebook or something to take notes with, because although these are tryouts and interviews, a majority of the time is spent as an overview as to what we are and what we do.

As for notifications on if you don't pass, we will be sending out a mass email to everyone saying if you didn't receive the acceptance letter, then we apologize and encourage you to try again next year!

How long did tryouts take last time? I think I heard somewhere they lasted until 2-3PM because of all the participants? :x I have an event I need to go to at 1PM in Santa Clara so I'm really hoping I can make it in time. If it's not possible, I'll just have to blow it off and wait for it next year. Maid tryouts >everything else

It was around 12-1pmish that we started last tryouts for interviews. If you need, let any of the staff know beforehand that you need to go early, and they'll give you the sign up sheet first so you can get interviewed sooner

I also would like to thank all the girls who came to tryout this past weekend and participated! It was great meeting you all and I really appreciate you all cooperating with the inconveniences we had such as relocating our interviews. I hope you all had fun for the rest of your weekend and I wish you all the best of luck!

There will be another try-out in March but the date is to be announced

I think as of now there will be another tryout meeting on March 10th. Mikey and/or Jun will confirm this soon though.

So far the weather reports indicate promising weather and no rain! I hope you girls are getting ready for AOD! I'll see you there!

hihi :3
Sorry for jumping in here :x
I just kinda have another question about the try outs.
「(^ヘ^; ) え〜と

If we go to the SF try we also need to go to the SJ try out as well?
Because i was reading through all the posts, to see if this question has been asked, so i wouldn't need to ask it.
but since i didn't see it...i was kind of wondering about it.

I'm currently living in Santa Cruz for school at the moment, so the SJ try outs would be easier for me to go to....but depending on my school schedule i might not be able to make it to the first try outs, though i will do my best to make sure i can go to the one in SF.

So my main question is, "Are both of the try out days optional or are they mandatory?" or, "Do we need to make both of them?".
Also, "What happens if we get lost going to the try out/meeting area?" I have a tendency to get lost very easily in new areas that i am not use to. (T^T)

Sorry about this semi-long post

Typically it's mandatory to just attend one of the try-out dates that are listed if you're planning to try out. You are more than welcome to attend others, but we just have them at different dates to make it convenient in case you are unable to attend another date. If you want to attend the try-outs in San Jose, I would suggest doing that if it's much easier for me (I  used to live in Santa Cruz, so I know what you're saying.) Short answer: Going to both is optional.

As far as getting lost goes, it'd probably be best to get there earlier if you think you're going to get lost, but chances are you'll end up seeing other girls heading in a specific direction. Usually we try to make the meet-up area in a pretty reachable and easier place, and being on time is definitely preferred other than being late. If you're uncertain that you'll make it on time, you should let Mikey know  in advance about it. He and Jun probably can answer it a little more in depth too if my answers are too vague.

Some things to keep in mind. If you're not going to be cosplaying for aod, I suggest dressing your style. Not dressing up or going all out, but really show us who you are.

I remember when I first tried out, I was in jeans and a sweater and I looked really crappy because I had to wake up super early. So I'm glad my glasses worked to my advantage.

Also yeah, when answering questions, think them through well and try not to make up answers to impress us. Like it's been said many times before, just be honest with us and yourself and you'll be fine.

The best advice I can give for the tryouts is to not overthink the tryouts. It usually ends up being a lot less stressful than girls make it out to be.

If 20 is old then I'll be past my prime this year.

As for experience from the past, this will be my fourth year as a part of Fanimaid Cafe, and it's probably one of the best and personally my favorite experiences at Fanime. Every year I meet great people, and our family just seems to grow more and more as we accept more girls in the group.

The first year was very interesting. I remember when I went to tryouts, I was a little uncertain as to whether or not I would make it, but the best thing to do is to be confident in yourself and to be honest when you're being interviewed. I've been on staff for a year now, and I helped conduct interviews last year, and most of the girls that made it appealed to me because they were just being honest with themselves and me (Tiff I think I had interviewed you actually).

At the tryouts though, what I most encourage you girls do is talk too each other, not just with friends you may be going with. Because if you end up passing the tryouts, you're going to be working together for all of Fanime weekend, and we don't want it to be awkward or uncomfortable for you if you choose to not open up to new girls. After all, this position does require you to talk to strangers at the cafe.

Overall, this is really fun and a great environment to work out in. If you guys have any questions too, you always have someone to go to.

Well, like you said, volunteering can get your badge reimbursed, if your a staff member and get a free badge, then you nothing from the maid cafe? Correct? Also, how much do you get back if you just work for the Maid Cafe?

How many hours you get to go towards reimbursing your badge depends on how many hours you volunteer to work at the maid cafe, or any volunteer service at any department in general.

I'll be going to the maid tryouts tomorrow, looking forward to seeing all who are attending it!

Sending out some words of encouragement as well~

Please, if you do meet the requirements and are interested in attending, don't be afraid to try out! Like Enju said, we love people who are out-going and cooperative. I've been a part of this the last two years and it's always fun to meet maids because we end up all becoming great friends. If you like meeting new people and even love to participate in events like our previous Maid Cafe performances, then that's all the more awesome.

The best advice that I can give you to those who wish to try out this year is to just be yourself. Hope to see a lot of you at the try-outs!

Anybody got pictures of the Resident Evil gathering? I was also a RE3 Jill there. Please and thankyou :<

They more or less will return. I wouldn't be surprised if they did. But I heard that they got arrested and were banned from coming around during any anime cons in the future?
