Maidreamin Returns with their Moe Moe Kyun Powers to Anime Expo stars

Maidreamin returned to Anime Expo to entertain their masters and princesses. This year, Ayame returned to Anime Expo and brought along Peace and Yuno, two new Maidreamin maids. Maidreamin had two sessions everyday, and they filled up the room with masters and princesses. Along with the Maidreamin maids were other local maids that were ready to play games like Jenga, Connect Four, and Pop-up Pirate with the attendees. Attendees were able to buy coffee, and Yuno would use her moe moe kyun powers to make it taste better. Once everyone got settled in their seats with their drinks and had played some games with the other maids, it was time for the show to start. Yuno, Peace, and Ayame took the stage by lighting candles to welcome the masters and princesses home. They performed a new song made especially for Anime Expo and their Maidreamin theme song as well. The guests had a blast interacting with the maids as well as buying their merchandise; posters, music cards, CD’s, mini polaroid pictures and a special tote bag designed by Peace herself.

Momomc Returns to Anime Expo 2017 stars

The amazing pole dancer, Momomc (pronounced momo-mac), returned to perform at the Anime Expo night café. She had multiple shows every night and one during the preview night. This time, the outfits she brought to Anime Expo included a mermaid, maid, neo oiran, Lum, and Rei from Evangelion. She announced the outfits on her Facebook page, so people could choose what show to attend before hand. The night café was 21 and over, and each ticket to the show included a free drink. If that was not enough, attendees to the show had the chance to win more drinks for their table. To begin the show, MC Steven took the stage and welcomed everyone who attended the show. In between dancers, the MC played games with the attendees, where attendees had the chance to win more drinks for their table by winning in trivia games. Some of the trivia games were ‘name that anime song’ and ‘sailor scout attack or sex toy’. In the session we attended, Steven came up with the hashtag #comeonpedro due to one of the contestants named Pedro who...um...let's say, needed some help with the answers. Steven made the comment that playing the game of ‘name that anime song’ was a bad idea at an anime convention because the participants were not getting any of their guesses correct.
