International pop culture sensation/punching bag Twilight is getting its own convention this summer: TwiCon will invade the Sheraton Dallas Hotel (a well-known vampire hangout) from July 30-Aug. 2. The unofficial conference will feature live Twilight-inspired band performances, a Volturi Ball, panels, workshops, and — of course — a “Vendor Hall where dozens of vendors will be set up for yourshopping pleasure.”
I find this hilarious because ComicCon is all about the over-the-top costumes, whereas I just perused EW.com’s recent ‘Twilight’: How Edward and Bella Got Their Look gallery and the flashiest piece I’ve seen so far is probably Bella’s cream thermal. Thirteen-year-old office visitor Kaitlyn Collett, who I just bribed with candy in exchange for any information about Twilight, has helpfully pointed out that there are tons of versions of Bella’s wolf/heart charm bracelet on Etsy.com.
OMG. Who’s going?
