It was a wacky weekend in the Hub, but one that ended with two people in love.
Between the Japanese animation convention, Anime Boston, and the video-gaming extravaganza at PAX East, thousands of people showed up in the city dressed in intricate outfits.
At Anime Boston, one guy worked up the guts to propose to his girlfriend, who was dressed as Pikachu, while he was wearing an outfit from Pokemon during a "human chess" session.
Here is what he wrote in his post on YouTube:
"I finally got the courage to ask my girlfriend to marry me at Cosplay Chess during Anime Boston."
