Earlier in August I attended Atomic Lollipop at the Japanese Cultural Center to help out with a mini version of Café Delish. It was nice to relax at a smaller convention and hang out with friends!
Instead of the full afternoon-tea style service that we have at Anime North, we offered three simple food combos at the convention – a traditional combo featuring tea-ceremony-grade matcha green tea and strawberry-red bean mochi, the Café Delish combo featuring Swiss roll cake and Tea-pop, and a special A-pop combo featuring an awesome rainbow cake and Sunrise Punch. Everything was delicious so it was just a matter of choosing what combo you were in the mood for!
We were also selling some blind-packaged pins that were designed by the maids – with all proceeds from the pin and food sales going to the World Wildlife Foundation.
The maids also learned a fantastic new dance just for this event –
Here is Mamiko whisking up some matcha for a guest –

Bosu took a photo of me while I was cutting up strawberries ^__^”
Here’s a few more photos of the girls being cute:

Chiyou and Nana were playing the Crocodile game with some guests, and Nana got snapped at! T__T”
I had a fun time and I’m sure our guests did too! It’s time for me to hang up my apron – no more maid café related activities for me until next year! ^__^”
