I have mixed feelings about the Twilight Conventions...they're cool (like purple), but I wouldn't personally spend $300+ to attend all three days...Ok I take that back, if I could easily afford it, I would do it solely for the purpose of spending time with amazing people. For me, there are only two real draws now, getting to see the actors & the panels they do, and the opportunity to spend time with great friends & make new ones...Friends were awesome this time, but the RobStenTay panel wasn't all that great. SURE, you can say I'm jaded, but I promise I'm not. I know for a fact that I'm not the only one that feels as if the panels should be moderated by a professional. The Comic Con panel for instance (even via video) was much more fascinating than the convention one. They do allow the audience to submit questions, but I'm not sure if Scummit puts the kibosh on most, or if the Hillywood crew just does a craptastic job of picking them out. The other thing that put a bad taste in my mouth were the audience members screaming out obnoxious comments such as "Marry me Rob" or "Take Your Shirt Off Taylor." Really?! It's obviously an attention grabber & I shouldn't let it bug the shit out of me, because I can pretty much bet my life savings on the fact that neither of those things are going to happen....but it does....bug me.
Oh, & don't even get me started on those that started screaming "My boyfriend's English" to Kristen. It's completely NOT OK to start mocking one of the actors & quoting something they supposidly said. I think it truly makes you a shitty twifan. So for those of you that yelled that...
We are their in support of these actors. I'm the first to admit that my heart races, my hands sweat & as @TwiloveSue so eloquently said "I forget to breath,"...but making fun of them or digging at their personal life during a live panel, is completely unacceptable.
Now onto a lighter note, here are some props that they had propped up (he he he) in the vendor area....
Epic fail on this one.
This was gorgeous. The company that created/provided the linens and decor for the wedding
