Hmm. I wonder if I'm the only one who isn't into maid outfits.

Very nice, but one bit of advice for the photographer: when shooting a subject in front of a brightly lit background, fill flash is your friend!

You know, I really need to head to Japan one of these days. A lot of the girls over there are extremely pretty.

Maybe it's just my allure to the exotic and Asian. I am an Anime fan after all. Laughing

All these maids make it hard to identify which series they are from, unlike the cool Time Bokan cosplay and the what I will assume (from the backdrop) is the Soul Eater ensemble.

It seems weird seeing 30-year old chicks cosplaying, but I don't buy this girl being an otaku or even being familiar with anime. I'll bet she's either there for the dough, or she got brought in by a homely friend who wanted some company. Laughing

There's no public cosplay allowed at TAF. By "Booth babes" we meant ust that, they're professional models / cosplayers who are paid to be there.

I really see no reason the chance of them being anime fans would be any different than any other random Japanese person of that age.

No, you're not. Maids always look generic to me. It's more impressive to see the models dressed as characters. Kinda weird to see a model with a plastic head on; you know that gets hot & muggy inside! BTW, looks like there were 2 Yoko models...
