Hundreds of costumed and wigged people descended on the Hynes Convention Center over the weekend. No, Halloween didn't come early this year. It was just Anime Boston — the largest anime fest in the Northeast. Fanboys and girls enjoyed a masquerade ball and performances and learned how to sew for cosplay (aka "costumed roleplaying").
