Our Event is Possibly Looking for a Nekozawa
Please Read Below for More Details
We haven't had a Nekozawa for a few years now and we're looking for a dedicated person to be a part of our group for this event. I can supply the wig, cape, and puppet for this cosplay, but we also need the person, who's interested in being our Nekozawa, to assist with the event prior to event time and date. The following is required.
1. Must be willing to attend at least one or two of our conference meetings for this event. (We talk/plan/write/etc for a long while at these, so be prepared.) Most of our meetings are based in San Antonio. Please bring ideas, imput you've heard from attendees in the past, and any information you want to share relating to the event. We're always looking to change up things each year a bit or tweak things a little.
2. Keep updated with us constantly concerning various things through SJ forums, e-mail, and especially phone texts. (I send out a lot of information through texts.) Also, to imput any ideas you have for the event and etc.
3. Because we do themes every year, we may expect you to add a bit to your own cosplay. We usually assist each other with this as much as we can so we're not burning a hole through our pockets. An example of this is when we did the waiter theme, everyone just paid for the materials that their vests and aprons cost and I made the vests and aprons so we would all match. (That cost everyone $10-15 in materials.) We're doing Steampunk theme this year, so you may have to add a little Steampunk inspired pieces to your cosplay. Again, I'll supply you with the wig, cloak, and puppet but just add a touch of steampunk accessories to your cosplay. It doesn't have to be handmade, but just maybe a brown vest from the thrift store, and other little things that won't leave your wallet empty. (Nekozawa is in a cloak most of the time, so he's not as required to have much Steampunk themes to his outfit as much as the Host Club members are.)
4. The Friday and Saturday of the convention (our event is on the Sunday of), we do a pre-signup for the Ouran event at our own table in the Artist Alley. We plan alternate turns at the table whenever we have a free moment at the convention so we at least have one person there at the table all through Friday and Saturday during the day. (When the Artist alley opens around to the time when it closes.) You may have to offer up your time during the convention to tend to the table and explain the event to con goers/sign them up for the event. After everyone gets a set schedule for themselves for the convention, we'll work out confirmed shifts for us all.
5. We usually have a decent set-up and break down time before and after our event, we ask that we have you come in at the start of the set-up time and stay until the end of the break down time. You'll be decorating the room with us and breaking down as well. We also may have to move tables, pitchers of water, trays, and chairs as well.
6. Please be in character to your fullest at the convention's event. We also ask if there is any drama to leave it at the door. If any issue pops up, pull myself (Hikaru) or Kendall (Kyoya) aside for a quick minute. The con attendees are here to see the Host Club and we must make them feel welcomed as much as we can.
That's pretty much the requirements. I apologize if this seems like a lot, but each member of the event puts a lot effort, planning, time, and money into this event. Why do we do it year after year? We love putting such a large and amazing event together for all of the fans of the Host Club. Sometimes, the things people tell us about how much they loved event makes us cry in joy. It makes us happy that we give such a lovely experience.
