Don't forget guys, that the term 'Otaku' is not a good thing to be called. I know America assumes that it's good, but it really isn't. You don't want tourists sneering at the business.

My Japanese History class had the class watch a show about Japan and anime. All these salary men were really embarrassed that they had been found out that they cosplayed or made doujin. From what my professor told me, the stipulation really came about in the 80's or early 90's when a serial killer was captured and found out that he had an obsession with some anime (I'm not sure which one). From then on, and it's faded out since from what I can tell, "otaku" was not a good term to be called.

How about rather than one or the other, you suggest the Paris Hilton route and have a Maid night each week? For each Saturday, the employees can dress as maids. That way she can have the normal, Parisian style bakery or whatever that she wants, and you can have the cosplay style. She might be more open to that idea or something. That way, if your workers are uncomfortable wearing a maid outfit, they can opt out.

If you're looking for decoration ideas, La Provence in Lake Oswego is a Provencal themed cafe with a large lavender field mural based off of the Provence region in France. It's got awesome break and delicious cakes. That might give her a few hints. It's pretty popular, too. They start baking at 5AM, though XD

I would go. Maids are so cute.

WE COULD ALSO MAKE A COMMERCIAL. : D because every time those play on television you make money : D

No. It doesn't work like that. You have to pay to put a commercial on. There's also the cost of making a commercial. The Obama campaign paid $5 million for a commercial slot during the Olympics. It's spendy, but you'll definitely get the word out. If you can spare the cost if you go for it, it'd be worth it.

Would it be in downtown Oregon City? Have you been there, and if you have, could you describe it or the local stores around it?

If you're on I-205 heading towards Clackamas, and you're in West Linn, it's the city across from the river. It's got a weird elevator and also has the three GINORMOUS covered wagons for the Oregon Trail Museum. It's about... 10 miles south of I-5 or Tualatin.

Her mom just bought the store a few days ago, so I don't know if it would be listed on a map thus yet. It might be listed under the business that owned it before. etc.

lol ya commercials make you seem like your desperate for business. learned that in class that's why most of the best restaurants anywhere never have commercials because they're so good people just keep talking about them and word spreads. i know that's what will happen to this cafe... it will kick butt :P

Sooo here are my ideas thus far:

IDEAS???
° Go to local business and hand them a card
° Have Bake Sales/go to businesses during lunch and sell etc.
° Asking businesses if they would like to sponsor the Bakery etc.
 

SEASONAL FUNDRAISERS????
° Spring - Plant things...?
° Summer - Wash Cars...? Lemonade Stands?
° Fall - Raking leaves...?
° Winter - Shoveling snow...?

Does anyone else have ideas for fundraisers except these?

alot of businesses more than likely wouldnt allow you to sell the goods at their locations. its really weird. they will allow girl scouts and boy scouts to sell cookies and whatnot but not our college anime club to advertise and just pass out pocky.

as for fundraisers...  find a place that would allow a bake sale, car wash like you said....

oh how bout this....

COSPLAY FASHION SHOW

huzzah...

But we would have to end up reserving something along the lines of a room right? Or we could use the Bakery as a "runway" but I'm not sure. And how to charge people as well...hmmmm

both of those ideas are actually pretty good. at my restaurant we kinda have a thing where kids design their own pizza. and my god they sell like crazy. so ya if you want to attract a semi large crowd the design your own pastry would be a good idea.

and ya "your picture with the cosplayers" i like it :P

I can ask around, but usually this a quantity of attires such as this you should purchase them (I THINK) because with the seamstress she would have to make so many, and it would be stressful on her, and pricey no doubt.

But anyway we look at this, the attires are going to be pricey probably : [[

SAYACHAN14

Maybe we should purchase the maid attires from online, because with commissions, most of them are expensive when it comes to maid attires, lace/layers etc.etc.

$85 - $100 isn't that bad, but a little pricey I will say. DX But better than more than that right?
Has anyone thought of any other fundraisers?

: D


I wish the cafe would open up soon as well X333 I'm itching to serve food and finally do something worth while : DD

Hmmmm....

Well thats a good idea I suppose. But what if the attires are too small/big when they arrive? What could we do about that?
etc.etc.

Though what does the attire come with? to be exact?
