Walker Stalker Con San Francisco 2017 was a star studded event. I’ve been to three other Walker Stalkers and have always had a good time and this was no exception. San Francisco is a small event for Walker Stalker, having about 7,000 attendees over the course of the sold-out weekend. The largest one is always in Atlanta every year- close to where The Walking Dead is filmed.
If you’ve never been to a Walker Stalker Con event, you might think it’s only The Walking Dead guests, but that’s not the case. Along side TWD cast members there were stars from Son Of Anarchy, Syfy’s Z-Nation, also Ron Perlman and Sean Patrick Flanery, just to name a few. The Walking Dead guest lineup was impressive, including current cast members such as Norman Reedus (Daryl), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Negan), Josh McDermitt (Eugene) and Tom Payne (Jesus), as well as the sadly departed Michael Cudlitz (Abraham), Michael Rooker (Merle) and Scott Wilson (Herschel). Other TWD cast in attendance were Emily Kinney, Khary Payton, Seth Gilliam, Briana Venskus, Xander Berkeley, Steven Ogg, Austin Amelio, Ross Marquand, Michael Rooker, and IronE Singleton.
Cosplay is one of the big parts of the Walker Stalker events. I love the creativity of all the costumed attendees!
Saturday was a busy sunny day at Fort Mason for the convention, but sunday brought buckets of rain. The enthusiasm was not crushed though, as the fans flocked to the outdoor panels, and to the stars themselves, despite the weather.
Even though he is the guy we all want to hate, Jefferey Dean Morgan, our charismatic bad guy Negan, was the show stopper on Sunday. Fans just adore him, despite what he is doing to our favorite TWD family members
Thanks so much for the additional photos from my talented friends, Oscar Benjamin and Priscilla Kumar! Enjoy the slide show below!
