Tomo Neko Maid Cafe was at the Monterey Park Cherry Blossom Festival back on 21-22 April 2012!
On Saturday, maids were on hand to escort festival visitors over to the anime swap meet area. It was a very hot day, but they still served their goshujinsama (masters) and ojousama (mistresses) diligently!
On Sunday, Tomo Neko Maid Cafe had a booth in the swap meet area where they answered questions and sold tickets.
Thanks to Pacific Media Expo, the maid cafe was able to introduce itself to the general public. Here, maid Arch sings an original song during the PMX Cosplay Contest halftime show! (EDIT: Contest photos here!)
After Arch sang, maid Diana narrated a Good Maid/Bad Maid skit that demonstrated how guests to the maid cafe would — and would not — be treated!
Here, one of the “good” maids demonstrates the proper way to serve a customer.
Meanwhile, a “bad” maid shows how customers should never be treated. D:
While I wasn’t able to get too many photos, PMXtra did cover the festival and the contest! Look for the halftime show beginning at around the 8:00 minute mark!
