October 2009 Events: Update #2 – The BIG One!

Cosplay & Maid Café @ fnac – The Mall Athens

Umi & Sora and Akai Panda: Taking it to the next level!

Umi & Sora and Akai Panda: Taking it to the next level!

After months of discussion, organizing and hard work, we are pleased to present possibly the biggest event of our community to date, being also our first big venture to the wider public: a 3-day Cosplay Café at the fnac’s forum, situated within The Mall Athens (access from Nerantziotissa Station)!

This project first took shape around the end of July 2009, when members from some of the teams, currently active in the particular scene, met in order to discuss the possibility of an event above and beyond the level of J-parties. The product of those meetings was team Umi & Sora Events, which co-organizes this event together with Akai Panda.

The Cosplay Café will take place over three days, from the 22nd to the 24th of October 2009 and its schedule is as follows:

Thursday 22-10-2009 18:00 – 21:00 Cosplay Café

Friday 23-10-2009 18:00 – 21:00 Μaid Café

Saturday 24-10-2009 10:00 – 18:00 Cosplay Café
Saturday 24-10-2009 18:00 – 21:00 Anime Movie Screening

At the Cosplay Café visitors will be served free (non-alcoholic) drinks by their favorite manga and anime characters (and on the second day by our team of Maids and Butlers), while anime clips accompanied by modern Japanese music will be playing for the whole duration. Furthermore, visitors will have the opportunity to be photographed with the cosplayers.

Although all this may seem familiar to the fans of modern Japanese culture, certainly not all visitors are expected to have come in contact with this particular scene, therefore we will be providing expletive material and the organizers and cosplayers will be available to give answers and explanations. For those in the know, we have to point out that this, however, is not a cosplay party in the usual sense.

You are all most welcome and eagerly expected,

Umi & Sora Events / Akai Panda

    @Zauk: Down boy!

    @Akihisha: Anyone can come dressed as they like, although there is no contest and apart from the Mall itself (which is pretty big, as I imagine you know), the fnac’s forum where the Cosplay Cafe will be situated is not all that big.
