Back from Colossalcon! We had such an amazing time with all of the wonderful masters and princesses!
On Thursday, we hosted Maid Cafe Academy, where we taught our guests how to be maids or hosts! We had many talented ones, including a robot, an adorable Alice from Wonderland, and a Sebastian that nearly made Maid Kanami swoon!
It’s been a while since I’ve been able to perform with Miads Usagi and Melody, so it was wonderful to see them. Although, the last time I saw Usagi, she had bunny ears, and this time I could have sworn she had cat ears and paws… How strange!!
On Sunday, we were able to hold an informal cafe where we played games with our guests. After my table had all won, I performed animal charades to help Maid Yumi’s table guess during “Who Am I?” (Also known as the Post-it Note game!) It seemed to help them a lot-I can do a very good gorilla and mouse, but not a very good fox! Thankfully Host Kaikyou was able to perform a rendition of a certain popular song to hint at the answer.
We also had the honor of Yenra Photography attending as a guest! He got a wonderful shot of me-I think it captures my mischeivious side very well!
I was really happy to meet with everyone, and I hope they had a wonderful time. The Maid of Hearts Cafe has two more conventions in the future! Please keep an eye out for updates, I can’t wait to serve you!
I’m so excited! We will be returning to Colossalcon!
Thursday night at nine, come learn how to be a cute maid or handsome host at the Maid Cafe Academy!
Then, on Sunday, stop in our casual cafe for games, prizes, dancing and more!
We will not be serving food this year, but anyone can visit the cafe room at no charge and you are encouraged to buy snacks from the concession stand just outside!
I look forward to seeing all of you!
Hello! It’s been a while since I updated!
Maids Mimiko, Yumi, Kiko, Miyu and Host Yoon and I all had a wonderful time at Phantom of the Attic Comics in Oakland, promoting Free Comic Book Day! If you’re unaware of this event, it’s the first Saturday in May every year. You go to your local comic book shop, and they have free samplers to get you acquainted with comics that are coming out. It’s a great way to start if you’ve never read comic books before!
We handed out candy to a large crowd, and got to meet a lot of exciting people, including the Real Pittsburgh Ghostbusters. They were really cool!
I’m excited to do this event again next year!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day from Frederique and I!
A belated Happy Valentine’s Day to you from me and the rest of the Maid of Hearts Cafe! <3 I hope you had a great one, and are enjoying lots of discounted candy now!
Maid Cafes were started in Japan with the idea of combining delicious treats with personalized, pampering entertainment from a server. The servers take on a different persona and wear cute costumes,…
I did a small write-up on what a Maid Cafe is! Please check it out.
There will be more updates in this blog in the future, Frederique the Arpakasso and I have some special treats planned!
Hello everyone! It’s time for another plush review!
This time, I’d like to introduce you to one of my favorite plush, my vampire prince from SweetsHaven! I’ve recently named him Charles the First. I adore him!
I found Charles when wandering through Artists’ Alley at Kentokyocon this summer. I stopped by a booth and immediately fell in love! Everything about him was that perfect mix of cute and spooky that I love so very much! I’m in real trouble when SweetsHaven lists more plush like this, I may accumulate an army!
My vampire prince is made of fleece and felt. I want to take a moment to say I have NEVER seen anyone use felt as well as Sweets Haven! Oftentimes, felt looks like it was used as a cheap alternative, but I don’t get that impression at all looking at Prince Charles’ accessories. It looks wonderfully pro, with sharp, clean lines.
He’s the perfect size at eleven inches tall (including his crown.) Everything about his construction is solid. I am very impressed with how professional his shape is—and how it’s just slightly different than his brother’s!
I think the tiny details are what make him such a wonderful plush. There are little jewels on his crown and the tiny chain decorating his cape. The cutest features are his tiny little vampire fangs—absolutely precious!
I admit I almost had to fight Maid Amaranth for him, but she ended up bringing his adorable brother home with her. We’ll have to take more photos together with them someday!
So please check out SweetsHaven at Etsy, I absolutely recommend their work and the prices are fantastic. Aside from these adorable plush, they also sell lovely lolita accessories.
Hello everyone! I hope you enjoyed your fall. It’s winter now in Pittsburgh, which means snow and cold! I’m not a very big fan of cold, but I think snow is really pretty and a lot of fun!
In the spirit of winter, this month’s plush review is going to be of a penguin! Please meet Mr. Pengu!
Mr. Pengu was a gift of a friend, who got him from Oboro Charms. Unfortunately, their site is down and there has been no activity on their facebook since May. It’s a shame, because they had very adorable designs and had just finished a successful Kickstarter for an owl plush very similar to Mr. Pengu in June. However, her deviantart and her tumblr are still up so you can at least view all the adorable things, even if you can’t buy them!
Mr. Pengu is a very well made guy! At just 5 inches tall, he can fit into your hand easily. He’s a little roly-poly—he’ll remain upright, but slightly off balance when you set him down to display.
His cheeks and eyes are embroidered, and his scarf is made separately—although it’s only stitched on in a few places, so if I REALLY wanted to I could take it off (but then he’d be cold!) The beak, tail, wings and feet are all very nicely shaped and stuffed. His head has two bits of fabric that add some detail.
My favorite thing about Mr. Pengu, besides his adorable design, is how very soft he is! I love to pet and hold him.
Overall I’m very sad that Oborocharms is no longer active, and I hope they return someday. I would love to get an owl to keep Mr. Pengu company, and I highly recommend their quality work!
KuroKiiro’s all oveer ;o; In case you all didn’t know I went to an anime convention near where I live and I just came back from it~ It was a lot of fun even though it’s a pretty small convention! I got to see some panels that were more so about Japanese culture rather than anime so that was…
Aw thank you so much princess! We had a wonderful time serving you, and your coloring was wonderful!
Are you ready? Frederique and I are!
