Maniac and Princess Angel were honored to attend ConnectiCon 2018 this past weekend at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, CT. While not all of the video and photos we took at the event have been uploaded, we were able to get some of the content we produced at the show online. Let’s take a closer look at some of it, shall we?

First off, we need to share with you a closer look at the convention space itself. If you’d like to see how big this year’s convention was, we brought a T-Rex with us to walk the floor and take some pictures with guests. Enjoy.

Next up, we’re going to show you an example of what it’s like to attend a celebrity panel. The legendary Jon St John, best known as the voice of Duke Nukem in Duke Nukem 3D and Duke Nukem Forever, was at the 2018 ConnectiCon and attended several panels and even free autograph signings. Here’s a snippet from a special private panel where he talks about how he got the role of Duke Nukem and what it’s meant for his career.

Art The Hypnotist is another long standing ConnectiCon celebrity guest. He is known for his ability to mesmerize a crowd to make them do his bidding, all for our entertainment. In this clip, we see him get a crowd of previously hypnotized people to perform a song and dance number of Gotta Catch Em All, the theme to the Pokémon television series.

Finally, we got something really special for you all. If you’re going to attend a ConnectiCon, either now or in the future the one special event you MUST attend is the DeathMatch on Saturday. Hosted by Mookie, the DeathMatch is a mix of role-play and audience participation. In it, costumed characters are pitted against each other two by two. While they cannot speak, each must look for the approval of the massive crowd. The winner (based on audience applause), defeats their opponent and moves on to the next round. The loser gets taken by the zombies.

How big is the event? Here’s some footage of its opening, and the lineup of participants in this year’s event. Take a look!

Congratulations to the 2018 DeathMatch winner, Jackie Chan.

We are still going through a lot of the raw videos and photographs we took of the event, so you’ll have to bear with us and wait patiently for more of our content from the event. Tickets for ConnectiCon 2019 are now on sale.
