It’s a great weekend for people watching in downtown Manchester, as Another Anime Convention lands at the Radisson Hotel.

We ran into Kayliegh Lawrence and Sydney Milewski at CVS looking for some last-minute props, who explained their colorful attire and the joy of cosplay – shorthand for costume play, which attracts anime and role-playing enthusiasts  who love to dress up and talk about all things Japanese anime.

We also met Nancy Boeckeler, a passerby, who was fascinated enough with a group of conventioneers to ask them about their costumes. She says it adds a creative flair to an already fascinating downtown scene [watch the video above.]

We can’t argue with her on that one.
