OPINIONS: COSPLAY CAFE AT DO
Post By sakuramiyabi. 25/12/09, 06:13 pm

FOR INFORMATION ON THE COSPLAY CAFE PLEASE REFER TO THE PLANNING THREAD FOR ALL THE LATEST UPDATES AND WHAT NOT. THANK YOU.

Me and Tammy were playing with ideas and we have come up with something along the lines of a Cosplay/Maid/Host Cafe. Of course in cosplay. I was thinking of having this set up at Doujin Overload 2010 to see the general (well as general as you can get with the anime population XD) reception of such a thing. I have 7 days before I fly back to New Zealand. And I will be broaching this particular idea with Seong.

Yes I am well aware of the no outside food with the hotel but I am hoping to work something out.

In the mean time I would like to get a general feel of what you cosplayers think of this idea.

Would it work?
Will it flop?

And if this idea does get approved then we will also need to know who would help us do this~

SO POST POST YOUR OPINIONS PLEASE <3~

BTW IF YOU SAY YES CAN YOU PLEASE POST SO I KNOW WHO IS WILLING TO HELP OUT~ THANKS <3

Note: In case those of you don't know what I'm talking about. It's basically one of those so often mentioned maid cafes/butler cafes/cosplay cafes. The customers are generally served by people dressed as maids/butlers/in cosplay and the idea is to create a fun atmosphere.

Sounds fun as long as we didn't get creepy people.
I think you'd get a fair few number of people as long as it wasn't too expensive.
I'd be keen as to help out for an hour or so ^.^

The idea is really cute and fun and I know it'd be great to see something like this at the event (though I can't help out or be part of it myself as I'm a seller).

There is the obvious problem of outside food or drink. You could always talk with the hotel staff (depending on where it's held) on actually working alongside their little food stall (they provide the food and drink, and you serve it). Don't know what they'd say to that, but it's worth a shot.

8DD was my thoughts as well 83
Though the food they sell is usually horrendously over-priced so was thinking if we couldn't see if they could decrease the prices a little.

I mean it would also make it easier to sell the food because we are poor people (pfftlol <3~ cosplayers) but people are more likely to buy for the whole "cosplay cafe" experience so to speak XD.

Sounds fun, but I'm wondering if we'll get enough people at DO to do that... although having refreshments INSIDE the venue would be great!

Awesome idea. It would prolly work really well at geddons as well, considering the large crowds. Not too chure about DO as it is a bit more "niche", as Basaka said, you might be better off going with simple refreshments first and seeing what the reception is like, and then as the event size increases, so too does the cafes repertoire?
DO is also by its nature a bit more casual.
All said, you are GOING to end up with a few weirdos, I think it is pretty much a guaranteed fact, I think it comes down to how you deal with them.

Ill be the cafe's bouncer...

This. Exactly.

I'm keen. It would be an... interesting experience.

Haha, I just read the maid cafe wiki link, we could always offer ear cleanings instead of food. How lovely.

OPINIONS: COSPLAY CAFE AT DO 65988 thanks so much guys for such positive reception

and yes i am well aware of the potential for creepy perverts hence the set of rules of expected conduct

we will also be in the hotel so if anyone needs forceful removing we could ask hotel security

haha what SS said is a hope and dream atm but if it came true and we could get enough patronage to survive (let alone make profit~ lol totally not about profit we're just strange people who like to do this stuff 8DD) would totally do it

//excitement haha 6 DAYS~!

@Static: that's a good idea, we'll have jp and you be our official photographers 8D for candids and stuff 83

@Kitten: lol sure you can be our bouncer 8D you have to wear a suit though <3~

If Kitten is the Cafe's bouncer... I think I will feel safe and not safe at the same time.... mmmmphmmm.... >_>
Prolly rather Kitten then random creepy stalker strangers @_@
If Kitten's crossdressing we could have him hide behind a curtain or something until needed... and then he can flash the creepy people, and I bet you they'll run away before they get to see um, under Kitten's skirt. XD But it's prolly not a good idea - scare of the customer's much?

I'm interested right now - my main concern is the customers (the real 'otaku' ones) might expect us to act fully as a maid from a Meido Cafe in japan or soemthing. And the creepy people. :/ And people who will attempt to stalk you afterwards. :/ *shudder, bad experiences with people like these*

WE could have a general cosplay cafe instead of a 'niche' Maid Cafe? 'cause people can just serve as the cosplay they're in or something. :)

Probably refreshments as the main menu would be ideal at this stage... and maybe a side snack like cookies or cupcakes.
