Subtle Twigear? Is it possible?

(Dear LTT-ers, While I’m away the mice will play… ok so we’ve asked some of our favorite past contributors and some of you newbies to write letters while I’m away in AFRICA! We just couldn’t leave you without a Twi and Rob fix while I was away, could we? Today Bella_NaA from Not An Addikt is here to entertain you! Give her a hand… xo,moon)

Dear Hot Topic and Summit,

In Belgium we have a saying that goes, loosely translated, as follows “that of which the heart is full, makes the mouth overflow”. Applied to Twilight, you could say it means that since Twilight has stolen our hearts (yes, let’s put it the sappy way), we can’t stop thinking and talking about it. (One of the main reasons why you’re reading this blog, and I’m writing this letter, I guess). Not only do we like to talk about the things we love, we also feel the unexplainable desire to showcase our adoration with clothes and accessories. Of course Summit’s marketing guys know this, and bombard us with every possible and impossible bit and bob that can somehow be associated to Twilight.

Jacob dog tags. For all canine Twilight fans. Wonderful.

Of course, some of us take it up a whole other notch…

Case in point:


But let’s not go down that road, shall we?

Admittedly, that’s taking it a little far. I doubt I’ll ever be drunk enough to start ironing Rob’s face onto a pair of old sweats, or tattoo his face on my arm. (Dear God, if it should happen, let the tattoo artist be sober and get it right!) But even the ‘regular’ Twilight merch – I’m looking at you, Hot Topic – cannot quite seduce me. I wouldn’t be caught dead in one of those ‘official’ Twilight t-shirts, sipping an extra large coke from a Twilight cup whilst rocking my Team Edward Burger King crown. Na-ah. No way. I’d rather make Buttcrack Santa’s kitty meow. (then again…)

No, I like my Twigear subtle. I used* to pride myself on not owning any Twimerch (an easily accomplished feat if you live in Belgium, which is like the Arizona desert of twimerch compared to the States). But if I approach my closet with a little honesty, it’s actually full of stuff that somehow reminds me of Twilight. I like to think of it as my ‘subtle’ Twilight gear. Insiders will get it, but to the outside world, I’m just a 25-year old who dresses as if she’s still 17 (don’t we all… no? Is it just me? Okay then…) Anyhoodles, let’s go over the evidence, shall we?

exhibit a: the Bella outfit


plaid shirt over long-sleeved t-shirt: check
skinny jeans: check
Allstars: check
moonstone ring worn on index finger (oh yeah, I went there): check

And now you also know why I got stuck with my ridiculous screen name… I blame it on Alice_NaA. And a little bit on this outfit (which I wore long before Twilight came along, ftr.)


exhibit b: the Cullen outfit


all sorts of clothes in dark blue/grey tones: check. Can I join for newborn fight training now, please?

exhibit c: the purple hoodie


Because purple’s cool. That is all.
exhibit d: the plaid hoodie

Ah, the plaid hoodie… one of my favourites! It keeps me warm on cold winter nights, and I cuddle up in it when I’m feeling sick. If I don’t wash it for a couple of weeks, it’s almost as if Rob himself were wrapping his arms around me and whispering in my ear that I’ll feel better soon. Either that, or my cough medicine is pretty effin fantastic! I actually named my plaid hoodie “the Roodie,” in honour of Rob. Rob + hoodie = Roodie, get it? It’s like having an Edward manlow, but less creepy. Awesome.

Oh heeeeyyy there Creepward… I’ll just stick to the roodie, if you don’t mind.

In conclusion, Twilight merch: not so much – with the exception of my awesome LTT t-shirt, but that doesn’t count as merch, obvi. But subtle Twilight gear? Bring it on!

Off to snuggle in my roodie,
Bella_NaA

How about you? Are you cool with rockin’ some Twilight merch in your daily wardrobe? Do you think I’m just a big fat coward? Or do you like to keep things subtle?
*I say used, because by now of course I’m the proud owner of an LTT t-shirt! Snarky and subtle, just the way I like it!

You said Buttcrack Santa’s KITTY. EWWW!!! But seriously how much do we love the Cullen fight training gear and the subtle nod to Rob on Bella_NaA. How friggin’ cute is she? Do you have subtle nods toward Twilight in your wardrobe or home? I do! I know these skinny jeans and high tops cons I’m wearing make me think of KStew!

    LOLZ! G E W E L D I G! I am from Curacao so I have wide hips (ehm) so no skinnyjeans for moi. I have two twilight shirts. I wear it when i go to Zumba to work out. Nobody asked me once about it. Sigh I think that is better than DH asking me how the film of Leonardo Pattirson (Eclipse) was *facepalm*

  • Sj

    I want a Harry Clearwater fishing jacket for w’ends in the country. I’d wear my Big Daddy tee underneath. Layers. And some Twiguy bait in the pocket.

    PS Do any of the LTT tees come in purple?

    • Sj

      Maybe accessorised with Rosalie bitchface, or confused Charlieface depending on my mood.

  • http://notanaddikt.blogspot.com Bella_NaA

    I wisely left out my kaki skirt and blue blouse. I think I’d be banned from LTT forever.

    • Alice_NaA

      Warn me in advance when you’re wearing that, so I can extend my perimeter.

      I love you for that Cullen training pose. ;)

      • http://notanaddikt.blogspot.com Bella_NaA

        I have about 3 blooper pictures where I’m falling down out of that pose. It’s hard! (twss)

        • http://www.twitter.com/ScienceGeek91 Rob’s slow mo’ strut

          Thumbs up for getting that pose right after a few takes. It does look hard..I would probably fall on my face if I tried that..

    • tuesdaymidnight

      Haha, that is acceptable so long as you are accompanied by a man in a sleeveless, white button-down.

      (Great letter, by the way! Love the poses, too.)

      • http://notanaddikt.blogspot.com Bella_NaA

        Yes! With a beige v-neck sweater, at least, at first… rawr!

  • dizzyladybug

    I got on the Twilight train REALLY late (like this past March).

    And I’m from Portugal so, not a lot of official Twilight gear going on around here.

    Prior to that I already lived in converse, skinny jeans and black and white t-shirts, but I still get the: “Why the hell am I dressed like Kristen Stewart feeling?” sometimes.

    Adding to that, recently my boyfriend decided to present me with the black Raybans I had been flirting with since two years ago…

    (I mean I love her, but it makes me feel kind of funny…)

    So yeah, I’m a fan of the subtle approach… I would never get out of the house wearing anything obviously Twi, except for one those very cool LTT t-shirt’s I have my eyes on, but then again that aren’t that obvious for the common people!

  • http://cantgoogleeverything.blogspot.com Rachel B

    I love this! I wore jeans and a plaid shirt to New Moon because I went with some friends who arent “twihards” as we say. They didnt get it.
    But, when we went to Forks, both me and my sister wore plaid! It kind of felt mandatory!

    • TeamSeth

      :D

        Loving your picture, Team Seth!

    What? No beige turtlenecks or white, sleeveless button-downs or khaki pants/skirt?

    • tuesdaymidnight

      Oops, I should read down before I comment. Sleeveless button-downs FTW!

    • http://notanaddikt.blogspot.com Bella_NaA

      Haha, I consciouly left the khaki skirt out. I own one (not ankle length, fortunately) but in my defence I haven’t worn it in years.

      • http://www.twitter.com/ScienceGeek91 Rob’s slow mo’ strut

        I too used to own an ankle length khaki skirt. Used to wear it a few years ago…but then in Stephenie’s defence, her book WAS written in 2003 so at that time, maybe that khaki skirts WERE in fashion in the Pacific Northwest..:)

        • Bea

          I wouldn’t claim they were in fashion, but people wore them. Especially if they had cargo pockets.

          • TeamSeth

            I see them around still. But I do take the bus to work, and that can yield some people of questionable fashion sense.

        • TeamSeth

          Hm, I just had a thought. Maybe SM purposely put it in to show that Bella had no fashion sense? And same with the sleeveless button-down of Edward’s… that he didn’t care about fashion (or something like that).

          • http://www.twitter.com/ScienceGeek91 Rob’s slow mo’ strut

            YES! I had the same thought after I posted that comment. SM probably wanted to point out Bella’s not-caring-about-fashion attitude by making her wear the khaki skirt. However, I can’t think of any excuse for Edward’s sleeveless button-down. And it should be a crime to dress like that when you have a sister like Alice..

            Hahaha TS, love your new avi.

        • Bella_NaA

          Khaki skirt owners unite!

          • Swooninginsuburbia

            Hey! I lived in Portland, OR in 2003, and I can personally witness that ankle length khaki shirts were totes IN STYLE! I still have one in my closet (gathering dust). Bella rocked the Old Navy style :)

  • Jamie

    I own no Twilight gear. I don’t even own any of the movies. Guess I’m a bad fan….

    • Luludee

      No worries Jamie. I’ll be a bad fan with you. ;)
      I only own the NM soundtrack and 3 of 5 (counting Bree) books.

  • JellyBeanRainbow

    I have some Twilight stuff, but it’s still in mint condition with tags attached and everything. Some were gifts, some I bought for myself, but I never wear/use them.
    I got a Jacob New Moon iPhone skin recently and proudly put in on, then realized I’m Team Edward again ( from the time I’ve seen Eclipse on) and I couldn’t do anything else than take it down again.
    /Sorry UC&Moon! But I’m still proud I got a gift from you./

    XXXL Diet Coke cup, yes, that’s me. I use it all the time. At home.

  • http://www.twitter.com/antisocialangel fangbanger

    Oh, what a timely letter. Just yesterday I wore my ugly Twilight shirt out of the house. I’m tired of giving a shit if the people at the grocery store judge me. At least I walk my ass through the store instead of riding a freaking buggy.

    LOVE the letter and I kinda want that Cullen training outfit. ’tis cute!

    I just realized the Bella outfit was what I wore constantly in high school and college. I, also, own way too many khaki skitrs that will never ever wear. Thanks to the hubby for constantly giving them to me for Christmas presents in hopes that I’ll actually wear one. (It’s so cute, how Edward he is, even though he hates Twilight)

    Great letter Bella_NaA!

      Gosh, I’m sorry I don’t like the khaki skirts! Make these child bearing hips look even bigger. Would you like some of them? I would be super happy to share! :0)

      My husband once bought me a coral floral Tommy Bahama campshirt. Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmm……

      I felt like Russell Brand in “Forgetting Sarah Marshall”.

    I totally crave flannel shirts thanks to Twilight. I wore them solidly until my post Curt Cobain’s death raver phase in high school. Ouch, I know. But I wouldn’t wear my dad’s old L.L. Bean ones this time, I’d get a nice fitted button up one more like a blouse.

    Coming out of the closet…I have 2 Twilight shirts. And I wear them. In fact, one is so stained I should probably retire it.

    Just to let you all know… that the LTT Big Daddy’s Fish Fry tee is popular with male Peditrician’s and elderly, Italian ADT alarm technicians. That are they wanted to check out my boobs. (Thanks for pointing that out WC Stacey. I can’t get that creepy thought out of my head.)

    I have a plaid shirt dress that I once wore on Christmas day and was greeted with “Nice dress Bella” all day long (the long brown hair doesn’t help). I actually got my cousin a Forks High Spartans t-shirt as her gift that year, I think it’s subtle enought to get away with!

  • Koni

    I have a shirt I bought when Twilight came out. It is navy blue and looks like a campaign type of shirt. It has white letters that say Cullen/Swan 08, and that is it. So, when I wear that bad boy out in public only those who are in the know get that I am actually wearing a twilight shirt.

  • Robsessedgirl

    Yeah I’ll admit I have a hoard of Twilight shirts, but my mom got them for me when Hot Topic was having a sale so it’s ok I guess. I love the moonstone ring she wears in the movies and cannot tell you how hard I’ve looked for one. I even emailed the EW Stylewatch thingy! Does anyone know where you can get one? Thanks!

  • snowwhitedrifted

    I’m a pale brunette w/ green eyes who prefers dark colors. Like the Cullens, most of my clothes are in the dark blues, dark grays and black color spectrum.
    I guess I’m safe, if by chance I’m wandering in the PNW forest some day and run into them, they may think I’m a long lost Cullen cousin.

    • Stacey

      You’re a cool lady! Cullen cousin. :0) I just realized that my whole family is a bunch of pale redheads who might be second cousins of Ron Weasley in Harry Potter. Oh well.

        Or better yet, that redhead Bree refers to…

  • Kaet

    I’ve seen a couple of subtle-ish Twilight t-shirts (well I saw tote bags actually but it said they had t-shirts with the same design), one was a pic of a motorbike and said “Black Swan Motorcycles” at the top with “Forks, Washington” right at the bottom in small writing. The other was a picture of an Italianate castle with “St Marcus Day” at the top and “19 Marz, Volterra Italia” at the bottom. I liked them cos it wasn’t blatantly obviously Twilight realted, only someone in the know would get it.

    • claire’s mommy

        • Em of M

          I love some of the stuff you can find on cafepress, a lot of it is pretty subtle. I myself got a t-shirt that says “meanwhile, in a little town called Spoons…” on it and no one ever gets it. Sadly, my friend also made me buy a NM tee from Hot Topic for when we went to the NM midnight showing, but thank goodness they had really crap stuff for Eclipse – we didn’t find anything we liked even a little, so I wore my cafepress tee. (Of course, I don’t think anyone really got it then, either, or they just didn’t care.)

  • eatmyjorts

    Alice! That was hilarious…if I spotted you with the opal ring on I’d totally out you! It’s subtle, but not subtle enough for a die hard LTT’er to spot.

    I can’t say my ultimate aim however is to wear either twi gear or to rock the Bella plaid look. And I say this as the bona fide owner/wearer of an ankle length khaki skirt. It’s just not like…that…whatever people think when they think of one…it’s a Fat Face Vintage surfer-girl type thing. I keep trying to persuade Fat Face to put out a new range called Fat Arse for those slightly older former hip type ladies, with a sense of humour. They haven’t bitten yet, & I want royalties.

  • http://mainericefamily.blogspot.com no cool name

    I own no TwiGear. I could not handle the embarassment. If I was the last person alive in some post-Apocolyptic scenario and there were only two t-shirts left in all of North America, a Team Edward shirt and a plain white tee, I’d have to go with the plain white tee.

    That said, I do not judge. Be loud and proud, ladies (and unicorns). Rock it if you can.

    I do, however, own a large fleece blanket with a large Edward face on it. It was bought as a gift for me with the intent to MOCK ME and was opened at a large family gathering. Good times.

    I have now hidden it from my husband who thought it would be super funny to display it in the guest bedroom. I get no respect.

    Bella_NaA, I do love the outfits. Totally cute and not at all obvious.

    • http://mainericefamily.blogspot.com no cool name

      Spelling fail – apocalyptic.

    • Stacey

      I know how you feel! My husband thinks my LTT shirt is a theme restaurant in Maryland and a gift from a friend. I have all packed to go on vacation, so unless some Twilight actor who secretly reads LTT is in Nantucket and calls me out on it, then I am safe.

      I do have a question for you. Does your husband get very threatened by Edward and/or Robert Pattinson? He noticed that I had dvred an episode of Graham Norton with Michael Sheen and the information screen mentioned Twilight New Moon. He was so cranky about it and asked why I am taping a show about that, “gay vampire, you salivate over.” He got mad about Twilight oer Michael Sheen an actor that he likes. I guess he can never know the real meaning of my LTT teeshirt, because it might become a cleaning cloth for the toilets!

      • http://mainericefamily.blogspot.com no cool name

        My husband just rolls his eyes about the Twilight thing. He even buys my stupid Twilight stuff sometimes just as a joke (like the Twilight conversation hearts they had out around Valentine’s Day). Of course, I am very careful to not mention Rob in any way. It’s always about Twilight as a whole. :)

        It also helps that that I am most sincerely Team Mr. Name and that if push came to shove, he’d win over Robward, hands down, and he knows it.

      • TeamSeth

        “There once was a girl from Nantucket…”

        Anyhow, I can’t believe your Michael Sheen loving husband scoffed at Michael Sheen on Graham Norton simply because the word Twilight was in the description. I would’ve come back with, “Michael Sheen plays a vampire…Wait, you think Michael Sheen’s gay? Is that why you like him so much? Is there something you need to tell me?” See where he goes from there! hehe

    Unrelated to this post – any other NickJr.-watching-moms out there seen the commercial they have been running lately with regular people and celebrities (like Jane Lynch from Glee and Elizabeth Hasslebeck from the View) singing the Dora song to wish Dora a happy birthday? Am I crazy or is Jackson Rathbone on that commerical singing “doo doo doo doo D-Dora?”

  • theseviolentdelights

    I own three twi shirts, but I do not wear them out in public for ANY reason.
    Possibly because all of them are ill-fitting and somehow whenever I try to put a vest over to hide the twi obviousness, the only thing that shows is Edward’s face peering over my boobs…and although that is the proper place for him to be TO ME, it weirds other people out. ;)

  • TeamSeth

    I wish that Belgium’s definition of skinny jeans was Portland’s definition of skinny jeans! The hipsters here are so out of control that I swear they sew each other into their “jeans” every day (more like suffocating evil denim things). I will never fit into skinny jeans here. Ever.
    But Belgium’s skinny jeans! Oh to be so lucky… they actually look like they take into account that women have these things called hips.

    Maybe it’s been said already, but your shelving unit looks just like Edward’s. I think I can even see a Debussy CD in there (claire the loon is great! hehe)

    This post is oh so true Bells! (Yes, I just turned into Charlie for a second, no copstache included). I have only a few items of Twilight merch, a Team Jacob tee and an Edward/Bella tee that I won from Sparkle for Twilight. I only wear those….well never when I think about it lol. Still, whenever I wear my skinny jeans, Converse, and my beige coat, I feel like New Moon break-up scene Bella. Let’s hope I never say, in any combination the word “I don’t want you to come” while wearing that outfit.

    • http://notanaddikt.blogspot.com Bella_NaA

      Oh noes, breakup scene Bella… maybe it’s time to add a green blouse to your wardrobe, so you can feel like reunion Bella? ;-)

  • TeamSeth

    New avatar! Now that Eclipse is out and about, I think it’s time to embrace the Condon.

    • TeamSeth

      Well, it’s not updated quite yet. Maybe, like, give it some time.

      • Robsessedgirl

        I have hope for the Condon(though it would’ve been awesome to see what Sofia Coppola could’ve done)

        • TeamSeth

          I do have hope for the Condon as well. I’m not sure on Sofia though… I love her stuff, but I don’t know if she and BD would be quite right together.

          All I really want is a close up shot on Edward cracking an egg. Of his long fingers and the runniness of the egg itself. I’m not sure why, but I feel that this image needs to be in there.

          • Robsessedgirl

            YESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYES. Long fingers+runniness in the same sentence.(pertaining to Rob of course) Yeah I don’t know what she would’ve done. Then again, the Condon has that musical background with Dreamgirls, & for all we know he could have the first honeymoon sexytime complete with a musical number.

      • TeamSeth

        I know! That makes me really happy.

  • TeamJacobEdward

    I wore my other LTT shirt (break it down) for the first time this weekend. I was chatting with a few people and they were all like, “what does your shirt say?,” “I don’t get it,” “what does that mean?” They had me surrounded. There was no escaping and though i was fully prepared to lie and say I had no clue and that I just thought it looked cool or something, my husband jumps in, “is that another twilight shirt?” (he made fun of me for my “that’s normal” shirt saying it’s still a twilight shirt when he quizzed me on that one the other week)

    How come I have to suck at lying?

    • Em of M

      I really want like six of the LTT shirts – British boys, both of the spirals, both tweeds, that’s normal, LTT girl, and LTR girl – but I’m a little too poor at the moment to afford all of them. :-/ How to choose one, though, is the problem!

      I don’t think anyone I know in real life would get them, so that’s a plus, too!

      • TeamSeth

        Do what SM did for the blogs and put them all in a hat then pull 1 out.

        • Em of M

          Good idea, but I think I’m gonna have to go with the British boys tee, because, for one, it’s the one I think I want the most, and two, no one I know will ever associate it with Twilight. Win-win!

      • TeamJacobEdward

        Ikr? It’s hard (twss) to pick. I was going to just get one after much debate, changing and re-changing my mind. Then when I finally went to buy one there was this 20% off code, so i got two (it would have been silly not to). But there are several I still want like, Tweedserious and Bothered and… :)

        Guess we’ll both just have to keep our eyes open for the next CafePress deal. Though if I get any more than these two, my husband might seriously consider professional help or an intervention. lol

    I (like yourself, Bella_NaA) don’t own any Twi merch. But I DO have plaid, a TON of gray shirts, and a pair of Ray Bans. That’s it. Also, is it fair that when I wear plaid and Ray Bans together, I get called a hipster?! Brrr…gross.
    Oh well, #FTR!

      I think it’s potentially fair based on geography. I live in HipsterVille section of Portland, OR and all the hipster kids wear exactly that… or sometimes those color frames with no lenses. If not plaid, it’s a moo-moo type get-up for the girls and “cowboy” like shirts (with the pearl-like snap buttons) for the guys. So, if you wore that here, people would call you a hipster. Just plaid though, that’s just the normal way of dress.

      And fanny packs are SUPER popular right now w/ the female hipsters. I see the allure, you can wear an outfit with no pockets when you go dancing and not have to carry a purse–free arms for full body cool dance moves. Doesn’t justify how ridiculous fanny packs look.

    I’ll admit to having an outfit I refer to in my head as my Esme outfit– pale floral skirt, pale pink lace tank, cream cardi, crystal necklace. Definately book Esme, not movie.

    Look, it’s a sexy Bella outfit.

    “Sexy”, “Bella”, and “Outfit” all in the same sentance. What is this world coming too.

      Pretty! The green one could be a sexy version of the reunion Bella outfit.

    I was in HS in mid-late 90’s so I DEFINETLY know FLANNEL. (If your my age you totally recall the baggy flannel overlay look….Peral Jam & Nirvana era…need I say more?) My friends in their early 20’s keep saying…”thats’ back in style” … I am thinking if you wore it once is it ok to wear it again ? (still have many in the closet…i’m a horder…LOL)

    I don’t have any gear. But a few months ago, as I was wheeled into the operating room with a collection of nurses, medical students, residents, anaesthetist, surgeon etc., I made a comment about “Team myrealname”. Only one woman cracked a knowing smile at me. I knew I was in good hands.

    I don’t own any flannel, but I have a green shirt similar to the one that Kristen wears in the Volterra scenes in New Moon. But I haven’t been wearing it in a while because ever since I cropped my hair, people have been assuming that I’m a lesbian whenever I wear it. I don’t know what the hell kind of Kool-Aid they’ve been drinking.

    I also have a crap ton of frilly purple blouses, but that’s more to do with the fact that purple looks good on me and because I love anything frilly and girly and less to do with Esme Cullen.

    i actually think the robert “manlow” looks more like shane west. anyone else see that?

    • theseviolentdelights

      same here! just a more deformed and creepy version of him… ;)

  • kitkat

    I have the “what if I’m not the hero?” shirt that I do wear in public, because without the back (that has “twilight” in faint font) most people don’t get it. A friend gave me a secret Santa gift of the “I just like watching over you” Edward silhouette shirt… and after a year of keeping it in the back of my drawer I sent it over to Goodwill. It was just slightly too creepy for me.

    I also have my LTT girl tote bag that I carry with pride, in the hopes that a complete stranger will say “I’m an LTT girl too!!” Still waiting, though… Maybe when I go to Forks in a few weeks.

    • theseviolentdelights

      I’m going to Forks in a few weeks too! So, if I see a chick with an LTT bag I’ll be sure to go “oh heeey….” ;)

  • twiprof

    I have what I call my “Bella” jacket because it looks like the jacket from the twilight movie….love the jacket….
    I also wear flannels in the winter…..

    question: how do you change your avatar? I have the perfect rob pic, but I cant figure it out….technology fail.

  • x.rosa.lie

    I have Bella’s moonstone ring, and the 3 bracelets she wears in Twilight :)
    I have the shoes she wears in Twilight aswell and a top like the one she wears in the Biology scene… I could go on for a while but I’m feeling slightly ashamed…

  • cyndibear

    one year ‘twilight anniversary’ isn’t until oct and i already have ‘twigear’… six LTT t-shirts… whoops! just remembered… three twilighttees t-shirts (obscure ref’s on front – very obvious on the back) on clearance, impulse purchases and pretty much spend all their time in the drawer… and a moonstone ring.

    back in the day… i had several pairs of ray-bans (and foolishly yard-sale’d them all away… in the 90’s). used b-day gift card and acquired new pairs recently. seems they’re pretty timeless… gonna keep these ones. = )

    Yea I got the Forks HS tee that Walmart had, but on sale for $3…. Only to realize that it said TwiSaga New Moon on the back. Inside joke FAIL
