Moe Day 2013



It's that time of year again.  The day that most shounen-jumpers & other type A anime fans love to hate, & the day us type B anime fans love to love.  October 10th is Moe day in Japan, and us stateside otaku are joining in the festive atmosphere by celebrating all things uber-kawaii.


Girls are encouraged to dress up extra "girlie" or "fru fru" & get in the spirit of the Moe look, as we will be going next door to the ""Ooh La La Dessert Boutique" for cute desserts & posing with stuffed animals & such.  Guys are encouraged to bring their favorite plushie if they have one, or if they're able to borrow a stuffed animal or whatever to bring so the girls have something extra to pose with for pics.

And in honor of Saimoe, which should be in round 3 by the time of this meetup, we will have our 2nd "Cuteness Competition", where peeps are encouraged to load up their smartphone, tablet or Ipad or Ipod, or e-reader or whatever, with the most sugar shock inducing ultra cute kawaii pics they can to see who can find the most Moe image imaginable.  This contest is limited to the 2D world only & is meant to be a test of one's internet searching skills.  detailed rules to be forthcoming & prizes to be determined as we get closer to the event.

So all you anime fans who are down with the type B kind of shows feel free to join us for a night of coma inducing sweetness as we celebrate all the things that pay the bills in the anime industry & keep it going.

Your faithful Organizers,

Jesse & Clarisse

"Moe: Serious @$%&ing business"

    As usual a great meetup with some hilarious conversations that lasted through the night. Good luck to all those people who got sent off on a quest to WorldStarHipHop, you may never make it back out of that ghetto labyrinth. (I'm prayin' for ya James...)

    Also, Kory, I'll link you some of the suggestions I made if you are interested.

  • James Lin

    Team Weiss Schwarz has assembled!

    October 10

  • Jesse

    OK guys, it's almost that time. So far we got several peeps bringing their stuffed animals/plushies with them. A reminder, if you have one you are encouraged to bring it, no matter how big or small (though the bigger the better). Also, if you got an oversized cardboard box that we can use for props, bring it if you can (you can flatten it & unfold it later if we need it). Also, any cute accessories we can lend the girls are appreciated. Cat ears, eye patches, leg warmers, oversized ribbons & bows (stuff like "Touhou" characters use)...etc...you guys get the idea. Don't know if we have any takers for the cuteness competition, but if we have enough we can do that sometime in the evening (got a prize picked out just in case).

    • James Lin

      Use live ammo to add to the realism

      October 10

    • Jesse

      Make sure it's a Hello Kitty Rifle to add to the cuteness level.

    October 10

    • Chris C

      I make that drive twice a week. It's not really bad by 6:30 or so. Pop on the Katy Tollway if transtar says 10 is backed up between 610 and the beltway: $1,50 or whatever well spent.

      October 10

  • Marina

    I just thought of something else to add to the evenings activities. This is something I need the Men of the meetup group to step forward & help out with. If any of you guys in the group is able to procure an old cardboard box, and I mean a BIG cardboard box and is able to bring it, please do so as we can use it for a prop for photo taking. What would we do with a cardboard box, you ask? Here is a hint: http://0-media-cdn.foolz.us/ffu...­

    If its ok with you all I would love to come and take photos. Since I'm a pro photog and I'm trying to build my oortfolio of cosplay and themed shoots I think this would be a fantastic time. I'm not asking for compensation. Just wanna make that clear.

      Hi Katie, I recognize your name from the Texas Cosplay Photog group. Great to meet another photog!!

    I have a large collection of different colored silk umbrellas and some fans that I can bring for props.

    I guess this means that I'll have to bring the wigs ans costume to work to change into before coming from downtown. Everyone at work (including Wells Fargo security staff) knows that I cosplay, but they've never seen me fully rigged up in person. This should be interesting.....
