Kishida Mel Designs Maid Cafe: “He’ll Not Wear Them”

In something of an unusual twist on the moe cafe boom, top moe artist and golden swordsman Kishida Mel has designed the maids for an actual maid cafe.

Nagoya based “idol cafe and bar” Carnival☆Stars now boasts costumes designed by Kishida Mel himself, to be part of their regular ensemble:

Even Mel’s design skills were not enough to rescue these poor maids from the horrors of the 3rd dimension it seems – the online reaction has been quite disparaging, praising the cuteness of the illustrations whilst pouring scorn on the “all too real” and “humdrum” costumes they gave rise to.

Mercifully, Mel seems to have pledged not to wear any of the costumes himself, though probably depriving the cafe of several times the attention generated by the actual designs in the process.

They may also be regretting not going with these:
