Host Club Tea Party!!!
« on: September 03, 2007, 08:06:27 pm »
For all of you that went thanks for making it such a great success!

We're also doing it again next year! We'll have a much bigger room, and a better stocked buffet!

Also, if you took pictures please post them because I didn't have time to take any while running the event.

I was the only one in the girl's uniform  :3

That was so much fun~!  The only downside, I think, was that I slid and hit my knee on the floor pretty hard during the first round of Duck Duck Goose.  D:

But really, I had close to no idea what to do and I'm shy, so I didn't talk much...I felt like I was neglecting people D:

(I'll be better next year, I promise~)

Some pictures:

I wish I'd gotten more, but I didn't have my camera out a lot.

But they had no cups for tea at the time.
My friends kept complaining about the cake.
I like it anyway. I love carrot cake.

maybe it would be cool to have a meeting beforehand to teach some of the people hosting how to conversate (awesome word huh?) and make it known that all host club cosplayers are welcome to host? :D

I'll DEFINITELY be going next year. It would be neat next year to have tea coasters (there's a better word for it but I have no idea how to spell it. Starts with a 'D') placed on each table for each tea up to rest on. Basically kick it up on decorations. Maybe have some sugar bowls on each table. Though I wasn't even able to make it to the tea party this year, I hope I can contribute in any way for next year!

Doilies? ^___^ Those would be cute.

I also suggest we take orders and serve everyone. It was a little chaotic when everyone was rushing to get food. I served a few people.
However, when I went to get food to serve, people said I was cutting the line. D:
I was just trying to do my job! ;___;

Yeah!! I tried to serve a few people (I was Ranka~ AKA Haruhi's crossdressing papa), but then I felt bad about cutting in front of people to grab things, but then waiting in line took so long!! We did manage to to serve most of our table though, so I was happy about that! But maybe we could have little carts or something to bring around to the tables. That would be so cute!


But this was seriously the most fun I had at the con! It was so nice to have people go "OH! YOU'RE RANKA!!!" haha, love being recognized! It was also fun to be in a place where you should be in character. I had to explain to people at the table that as a fan I love Tamaki, but as Ranka I hate him (I kept glaring at the ones that came too close to the Haruhi I was with).

Oh I'm sure that SOMEONE will get you a costume for Ouran. Theres so many choices besides the two uniforms that I'm sure something can be engineered. Heck, your Misa dress was close to the dress worn by Nekozawa's maid minion...

You know what would be bloody brilliant?
Invitations.

Make up some little embossed invitations that would be like, tickets to the Tea Party. Figure out how many servings of cake there will be, then make sure that only that number of invitations are distributed. It will be a good way to cut off the line that is sure to be huge next year, and also give attendees a lovely little keepsake! Also, if people wanted to, oh I don't know, request an invitation before the convention then maybe Kyouya could be convinced to mail them one for a modest donation? <_<

All funds go to cake after all.
That's much better than death. ;)

Invitations sound cute just for the "SDFGIHASG I CAN SCRAPBOOK THIS LATER~" factor. I know it would be A LOT (of money and pieces of paper) to do this, but I think putting invitations into everyone's con bags for the event would be cute.

But that might make it too popular?

I think it would be kinda exclusive to hand out invitations. I would like the event to be open to everyone. And since next year we are going to have a MUCH bigger room, I think we won't really have to worry about the HUGE lines!

MUCH bigger room eh?

What I was actually thinking about the other day is to hand out invitations to certain people, and those people get to automatically come into the room without waiting in the line

Like...oh.... VIPs and guests perhaps? ;D
I'm sure that relations would be happy to work with you on that.

If there's a minicon, you should totally arrange for an acting coach or an etiquette tutor to come in and give How to be a Good Host lecture for your crew. Once everyone has the manners down then they can use them as a tool to stay in character. Then it's just a matter of the other people at the event minding their manners.

Actually guys, they "pay to get in" may be a necessity from now on after they've reviewed the catering costs from the hotel. They're pretty expensive. The convention can reimburse panelists quite a bit but if one tank of coffee costs like... 40 bucks then something has to change.

I suggest that the Hosts start gathering funds to take the pressure of the con as well as the attendees. That way if there is a fee then it can be a bit smaller. Everybody wins.

Now that we have a Facilities Liaison (guspasho) you can start talking to him about what the cost will be.

...of course, you also need to know what room you'll be in.... <_<

I think that a low number like $3 is a perfect amount, its within the budget of the congoers considering how much a meal would be elsewhere, and also helps us cover the expenses. As long as the number stays around or below 5 I think that people will still be happy to participate.
