Twilight Opening Night

Posted in Twilight at 5:30 pm by Bridget

I have to admit, I’m getting really excited for the movie. I agree with Janet and Michele in the comments that the actor playing Edward is not my Edward, but he is hot in his own way. I like to think of movies based on books as actually being OTHER stories with OTHER characters that just happen to be similar to a book that I like. This works some of the time, although a few of the HP actors have wiggled there way into my brain. Not Harry, Hermione, or Ron, but some of the teachers and adults like Malfoy’s dad. That guy does such a great job! So sinister.

I totally hope people dress up for the movie — that is really the only reason to go opening night. I’m actually secretly an opening night/enjoying the people in costumes junkie. The costumes range from super creative to completely awful, the energy is always high, you overhear the best conversations (and learn new words, I didn’t know what LARPing was until Star Wars or The Matrix, I can’t remember now), and people clap in the theatre over pretty much anything. Oh, look there’s some actor who was in a different movie that we all liked, clap clap clap, eek, yoda has made an appearance, clap clap clap, the beginning credits, woo hoo, clap clap clap. So fun. 

I don’t know if Twilight will be quite this exciting. What do you do to dress up like Twilight? Try and look more gorgeous and pale than usual? But I hold out hope.

And, yes, I will come to the 2009 Twilight Convention, Janet! How can I miss it? I bet TONS of people figure out how to dress up for that.

    I should drive by the movie theater at 11 and see if/how people are dressed! I’m sure they’ll find some way. I guess I would be more gorgeous, pale, and fabulous than I usually am. Perhaps it would be easiest to go as Alice, with spiky hair and amazing clothes. Or a traditional vampire, with a cape and some fangs.

    I’m guessing that most of the dresser uppers went last night, but there still might be some tonight. I’ll bring my camera. :)
