This was our first time as a vendor at WalkerStalkerCon in Atlanta and we had The Best Time! For those of you who don't know, The Walking Dead on AMC is only the best television show ever and WalkerStalkerCon is an entire convention dedicated to the fans of the show. We got to meet several of the show's stars and lots of other interesting people. The fans like to dress up as their favorite characters, from Rick Grimes and Daryl Dixon to gruesome Zombies, we saw it all! Lennie James, who plays Morgan on the show, was very impressed with our walking sticks. I got to talk to him twice about them! Hoping he'll soon be a proud owner of one! I also got to meet Loren Cohen aka Maggie Green! She was shocked and amazed by the detail and craftsmanship. Scared the pants off of Mackenzie Lintz from Under the Dome with one while she was hanging out at her sister Madison's (Sophia) booth. Got to talk for a while with Michael Cudlitz (Abraham/Bull Randleman from Band of Brothers) about the walking sticks and Toccoa's military museum and reunion weekend. Scott Wilson aka Hershel Green said he remembered meeting us and seeing our work last year when we attended as fans. Let's see, also got in front of Denise Crosby (Terminus Mary, Chief Tasha Yar from Star Trek; Next Gen.), Chad Coleman (Tyrese), Irone Singleton (T-Dog) and Tovah Feldshuh (Deanne Monroe).
I guess we handed out two to three hundred business cards. We made a few sales and some new friends. The exposure was great! I also got some ideas for new sticks and new markets that may be interested in them. Learned a lot, had a great time and made some great new contacts! WalkerStalkerCon Atl 2015 - Successful! Here are a few pictures from the event - enjoy!
