San Francisco marked the California stop for this amazing cross country convention dedicated to the AMC Television Series, The Walking Dead. Arriving at the Fort Mason Center was something straight out of a zombie film. The environment and old buildings gave the event that ominous feeling that you were in a fight for your life in the undead world. Each building was full of excitement from the many cosplayers recreating their favorite Walking Dead character to the actors themselves who devoted their time to meet and great with the fans. There wasn't a moment of letting up and there was always something to see.

I would have liked to see more artists and vendors but for the ones who were present, every booth and table was packed full of different merchandise from props and replica weapons to undead creatures and toys. At the artists tables there was everything from Doctor who and Star Trek to Walking Dead and A nightmare on Elm Street. All the vendors and artists were friendly and helpful and it was awesome to see all the variety that each artist had to offer.

One legend in particular Robert "Freddy Krueger" England was one of the nicest people you could ever meet. While in line to meet him, he actually skipped his lunch to continue to interact with his fans. You could tell that he appreciates his fans. Every actor at the show was awesome and extremely nice and excited to see people cosplay the characters they have portrayed.

Overall the experience was amazing and I would recommend attending a Walker Stalker Con when it comes to your city.
