The Fanimaid Cafe team have announced a series of digital tryouts for anyone who wants volunteer during the FanimeCon 2021 weekend. Even though there will not be a live event, the return of a hallmark event is welcoming to the community.
Maid cafes are a staple of anime conventions and the one at FanimeCon has been hailed as one of the best. That is why Fanimaid Cafe will be holding tryouts online to find qualified volunteers (due to ongoing pandemic).
Those wanting to try out will have to sign up and pick a date for their virtual interview. Tryouts will last 1.5 hours and will start with an orientation followed by an interview.
Anyone who wants to tryout must be an anime fan and 18+ years of age. Volunteers must also have their own maid outfit (none will be provided). They must also have a 480p+ web camera with a microphone and an Internet connection speed of at least 40mbps.
Those selected will participate in at one time slot on either Saturday or Sunday. They will play games and sing with other maids for guests online (via Zoom).
More information about the digital event will be announced in the coming months. At the moment, it’s unclear what the all digital FanimeCon 2021 will look like. There was no official digital event last year but members of the community organized a series of unofficial virtual panels.
FanimeCon 2021 will an all digital event that will take place from May 28 until May31st. It’s one of the largest fan organized anime conventions you could check out some of the amazing cosplayers form the 2019 event.
