|I am not the best at making zombie faces. Ah well :)|

Don't worry though, after a bit of food (a burger, because of course a zombie needs her meat) and some drink, my zombie face got progressively better as the night went on ;) I even braved the Saturday night VIP Meet & Greet in my ridiculous "Disney Tourist zombie 'costume'", and was lucky enough to run into Chad Coleman (Tyreese) and Sonequa Martin-Green (Sasha)! And after the meet and greet, it was about that time...zombie party time, of course!
|Oh, and I 'bit' Norman Reedus! (Just kidding, that's an awesome cosplayer named Steve)|
|See, I told you my zombie face improved!|
|Another awesome zombie at the party!|
|My buddy the Gov needed a bite too ;)|
The zombie party was actually a lot of fun, and definitely not as crowded as I' would have expected it to be. They had cash bars, of course, but I was also pleasantly surprised that they had a food spread...for free! I'm not usually one to go to the big theme-type parties that they have at conventions, but I'm glad we made it out to this one. The only minor issue was that they stopped the music/dancing for quite some time while they had the costume contest, and since timing-wise it was scheduled in the middle of the dance party, that did kind of make for an awkward break and it seemed that a lot of people unfortunately wandered out of the party because of it.

|Oh, her turn.|

It was actually (surprisingly? haha) a pretty early night for me, but I did end up back outside one more time after leaving the zombie party, where I ran into Scott Wilson (Herschel). I didn't talk to him because he was surrounded by people, but I thought it was so great that he was out there smoking a cigar and talking to fans, when I'm sure he could have found a private place to enjoy said cigar. I also later heard that he was outside for quite some time - possibly even a good couple of hours after I went to bed around 12:30 AM ;)
Sadly, going to bed Saturday night meant that Walker Stalker Con was almost over...but hey, not quite yet! I hit up a few activities on Sunday before leaving Atlanta, and I'll continue my coverage with those stories in my next entry!
