Here is a taste of things to expect in 2015!
Shuto Con is pleased to bring in its second annual Maid Cafe! Our Maid Cafe will run for 8 hours on Saturday (and possibly Friday in 2015) and will be limited to 32 people per hour (attendees will enter at the top of the hour, get their food, and will have until 10 minutes to the next hour to enjoy their time in the Maid Cafe totaling about 50 minutes). The cost to attend the Maid Cafe will be $7 and will include a light lunch/dinner (a pinwheel sandwich, a fruit skewer, a mini torte or cheesecake, and a drink of tea or coffee), and entertainment. Space is limited, so attendees are encouraged to line up early to secure their spot in one of our 8 hour slots.
We know that many of our attendees have said they would like to volunteer for the Maid Cafe, and if you would like to do so, send an email to email@example.com on or after Oct 1st, 2014. Maids and Butlers are both desired, and those with previous cafe experience will be contacted first. We will not be supplying costumes/cosplay for the cafe, you must have one in your possession to be able to volunteer. Cafe hours will count towards are Volunteer badge compensation program.
HAPPY ENVELOPE PRIZE GAME!!!--- Sunday 4pm - 5pm
Here's how it goes; Tickets are given at the event entrance. We will call contestants up on stage by ticket numbers. Once on stage we will have 30 envelopes with prizes, all numbered 1-30. The contestant picks a number and gets the prize in the envelope. There will be 2 rounds with a final round following round 2. 5 envelopes divided between the 2 rounds will have final round passes. Those contestants go on to the final round for the grand prizes. There will be 2 final round passes in round one and 3 passes in round 2. The order of tickets found will be the order they pick in the final round. The Final round will have 5 envelops of best prizes. One envelope will contain the grand prize.
