ConnectiCon crashes Hartford's convention center

When it comes to people-watching, Hartford's Connecticut Convention Center, including the restaurants and businesses around it, are prime time this weekend. 

Escalators were packed full of Connecti-Con fans on Friday. 

The convention is all about pop culture. Fans of cosplay, anime comics, shows and movies like Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Deadpool and Batman.

The costumes are eye-popping. Many are intricately detailed and offer a chance to be creative.

"I'm a makeup artist by trade, so just being able to do something different is fun," said one Harley Quinn enthusiast. 

ConnectiCon is the biggest event at the Connecticut Convention Center all year.
