Even the celebrity guests like The Walking Dead‘s Cailey Fleming got in on the cosplay action.

Fleming currently stars on the AMC hit series as Judith Grimes. She is also well-known for playing the role of young Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. She couldn’t resist snagging a quick photo op with the 501st Legion.

Fleming wasn’t the only guest who was getting in on the playful fandom fun. The Walking Dead‘s Callan McAuliffe discovered that one of the best ways to get around a massive convention hall is by bike. McAuliffe borrowed the iconic prop bike from the hit horror film IT and took it for a spin back to his autograph table towards the end of the weekend.

Guardians of the Galaxy star Michael Rooker also decided he needed some wheels to get around during the weekend.

He made a grand entrance at the Main Stage for his panel with moderator and Comic Book Men star Ming Chen. Chen hopped on the handlebars for a good old fashioned double ride.

Walker Stalker Con/Fan Fest New Jersey was a weekend that was more than just fun and smiles; it was full of love and appreciation. Tons of hugs, happy tears and handshakes were seen all over the convention floor as fans got to meet their favorite celebrities. Additionally, the celebrity guests got their chance to return the sentiments.

The whole weekend is perhaps best summed up by Arrow star Juliana Harkavy in her tweet below which reads:

“Thank you for an unforgettable weekend #FanFestNewJersey. Meeting you all touched my heart.”

Both Walker Stalker Con and Fan Fest Events have more amazing conventions planned throughout the remainder of the year. Visit and for more info and to purchase tickets!
