Welcome to my Anime Boston 2008 pictures! I have a lot of fun taking pictures at anime conventions, but half the fun is knowing that fans will be able to look through the pictures later on the internet. For this reason, I go to great lengths to make my pictures as accessable as possible, so rather than just throwing the pictures up, I put together these little headers to help you navigate through all the convention photos. The Anime Boston 2008 pictures are split up into three batches: pre-con, con, and post-con. Most of you are probably just interested in the main "con" batch, but the other batches are interesting too.

To make things easier on all of you, I also am including this complete listing of all my convention photos. I have pictures from all of the Anime Bostons as well as a few other cons, so be sure to look around.

Also, if I got your character's name wrong, or don't know, I'm sorry, I do my best. I can't watch every anime and play every game, so a lot of these costumes make no sense to me but are still awesome enough to take a picture of. Also, if I didn't get your picture, sorry, maybe next year. This especially applies to the Masquerade. I pretty much put up everything that wasn't blurry or too redundant.

If you have any questions, comments, caption suggestions, or if you notice I captioned something wrong, made a typo, or put up a picture that you would like removed, please do not hesitate to contact me! I love hearing from people who visit the site, so whether it's positive or negative, drop me a line.

You can contact me through:

Enjoy the pictures!
