If you want to read about our Anime Boston experiences from this year, you can check them out here. You can also go back and check out last years Anime Boston cosplay photos as well.
Finally getting the cosplay photos up. Sorry it took so long, but there was a lot going on in our lives over the past few weeks. Better late then never. I hope you enjoy.
