Yes…I am one of those people. You know, the crazy ones who dress up in costume and go to midnight movie premieres! Even though I am not exactly a fan of Twilight I am going to see New Moon. Why do I not call myself a fan? I think the writing sucks, the plots are silly, and sparkling vampires? Hello? What’s up with that? Edward ticks me off big-time. He’s a stalker in the books, and the actor is so NOT ATTRACTIVE in the films (can you tell I’m Team Jacob?). But still – still – I couldn’t stop myself from tearing through each book in a matter of hours. I won’t buy copies for my library, I’ll never read them again, but I swear they’re like vampire crack. I’m going to the midnight releases of these films not because I’m exceptionally excited to see the sparkly vampires, but because the whole Twilight thing interests me. I like being in a crowd of people all obsessed over the same thing – there’s just something deeply cool about people coming together like that. It only makes it more awesome that Twilight fans come in all ages, just like Potter-aholics. This time around, it’s going to be especially fun, since a whole pack of us are going together: we’ve got a Bella, a Victoria (me!), an Esme, Alice, and Rosalie Cullen, a Jacob (Yay Team Jacob!), a “Jacob’s father”, a Jane (Volturi), and two people who are not in costume, and who we are going to call Bella’s human friends. It’s gonna be good times.
And me being me, any excuse to wear a costume is made of win!
Here’s the newest trailer, in honor of the Midnight Release being tomorrow night!
