Story time with Moon – Comic Con 2011

Dear LTT-ers,

A lovely story time with moon will be here once I’ve had time to upload my photos and find videos and finish this left over breaking dawn muffin that booboo served to me this morning. More on all of this later… After I sleep. And find my camera.

Your reporter in the field,
Moon

Dear Breaking Dawn,

It’s been one year since my last big Twilight related event and two years since my last Comic Con, so when you were going to be at this year’s Con I knew I had to be there… Here’s the story…


After one missed train and two missed trolleys, I finally made it down to “Tent City” sometime after midnight the night before the panel. Can I first interrupt and say they need a new name for “Tent City” as that is what they house prisoners in where I grew up (Arizona). New name needed stat!

.
While waiting for Hall H to open we took in some of the world’s finest people watching…

This guy was confused… it’s a Wolfpack not a pack of sintars friend! PS The back of this costume had little wheels (sorry to spoil the magic) that scratched across the ground when he walked and sounded like Ringwraiths from Lord of the Rings or nails on a chalk board or a pack of screaming wild she-beast Twilight fans… I guess it was good preparation for what we would encounter later in Hall H


Yup, Comic Con is a place where blue mohawks and Team Edward can coexist much to the chagrin of all the haters
.

We ran our arses back to the line because Summit trotted out the 2nd stringer cast members to serve us breakfast and sign autographs

And don’t worry I wasn’t above shoving my LTT Sigg bottle in her way so she would sign it… right next to the outline of Robsten! HA Jokes! The only thing I regret is not bringing the Fake Lesbians design. Fail.
.
I think I saw just about every major Twi site owner in line including these two lovelies from His Golden Eyes and The Twilight Lexicon
I decided to creep them out by tweeting them a picture of themselves blogging and tweeting from the line. Don’t mind me, I’m just stalking you…
.
And because there is nothing else to do in line but entertainin yourself by people watching becuse you have to save your cell battery and it’s hours till they open the doors I started seeking out the best fan shirts I could find. And wouldn’t you know it they were right around me. aka I’m lazy.
Trust me, click to enlarge, enjoy and laugh your arse off… or maybe set at your desktop background
.
About a billion light years (hey, it is Comic Con after all!) later they finally decided it was time to start the annual running the of the bulls Twilight fans. I don’t have any pictures after this because it got a little fuzzy, all I remember was yelling, no running, poor CC volunteers, elbows in my back and Olympic style speed walking.

Hall H – meaning heaven… HALE… hillbillies… hipsters… green Hornets… horny ladies… yup, I think we fiured out what H stands for.
.

Having been forewarned by UC and other tweeters that Rob had a “mohawk” we tentatively waited to see what that looked like and then finally we laid eyes on him…

This is essentially the same face we had upon seeing Rob’s shrunken toupee-askew hairdon’t WTF?! I mean it’s one thing to think it’s cool and rock the shit out of it, but it’s another to sit sidways the whole panel so we can’t see the weirdness head on.
O.
Once the screaming died down it was off to the races…


Right off the bat Rob threw his fetish girls a shout out with this water bottle pose…
..

Not to be out done he then went for this pose…

Knowing their audience and their love for dark, grainy, photoshop enhanced, are-they, aren’t-they, I lost my contact can you find it with your tongue in my mouth pictures, they threw a bone to the Robsteners with the occasional stolen whispered nothings between questions… or pretty much anytime Taylor or some rando was talking
.


Yea, having a faux pregnancy for a film made my boobs this big!! I’d call it sympathy hormones. Yes, please ask me more questions about pregnancy, audience when I am but a 21 year old girl who has never been pregnant, I only play one in a movie… GREAT QUESTIONS.

Srsly people?!

After an aptly time question from a dude for Rob and Taylor asking how it was to work with a lot of hot women these lovely ladies came out to help liven it up which was good because my latte had worn off and I could’t do one more “What was your favorite part of filming” or “Kristen, how did your personal experiences affect how you played a pregnant Bella?” Absurd.

Then these ladies came up and Nikki Reed made it hella awkward by acting super cagey when asked whether the cast would stay in contact after the movies were over. AWKWARD!!!

Wanna watch the whole thing?

Be our guest! Have fun deciding which question was the most cringe-worthy!
.

We were also treated to 2 clips from the movie that I can’t seem to find online an I’m SUPER surprised they weren’t up like 2 seconds after they played in Hall H. Well done Summit, scaring the SHIIIZZZ outta everyone.


I really hope this whole sheer shirt/black bra look catches on as the next KStew fashion statement that Twi fans pick up. Anything’s gotta be better than the shirt knot. PLEASE Kristen fans let’s make this new look happen.

More to come here!

Once all that Twilight hub bub was over and once we drowned our frazzled nerves in a few gallons of Diet Coke we headed over to the exhibit hall and wouldn’t you know it we saw an Alpaca!


.


Why, yes I did walk around San Diego unashamedly drinking from the Edward the Insurance salesman Breaking Dawn swag cup. Ain’t no thang.

Be Back with more later!

Have you seen all the Comic Con pics and Q&A yet? DUDE where are the links to the clips from BD they showed??!!!

Photos by: Me (duh), VixinCali, BrookeLockart, and a ton of others by the end of this…

Announcement from UC after the Jump

Gone Fishing LTT

NOT AGAIN!!

It’s with sad news that I tell you that Moon is leaving us YET again. She’s going back to Africa! If you remember the worst 10 days of my life when I could do nothing but hang up a “Gone Fishin’” sign on the door blog, well, it’s happening again. I am going to try to keep up with blogging, but to be honest it’s REALLY hard running two blogs on yourself, especially when there’s NOTHING out there to write about. So that’s where you come in.

If you have something burning you’ve been DYING to “talk” to Twilight about, please e-mail us a letter at letterstotwilight@gmail.com! You can include pics if you want (links or attachments are best) or I’ll find appropriate ones for you! The more emails we get, the more posts there will be while Moon is gone (for like 2 weeks this time, I think!) I’m going away towards the end of Moon’s trip, so LTT will either have the occasional letter from me, bitching about how much I miss Moon, letters from YOU, or nothing but a “Gone Fishin’” sign, which would probably make Twilight sad. Don’t make Twilight sad.

Speaking of letter submissions, we don’t thank you guys enough for sending them in. We REALLY appreciate that there are great things out there for us to post on days when we’re JUST NOT FEELING IT. You are the best blog readers two girls could ever have. Seriously. We love you all so very much & you’re the reason we keep blogging (shh don’t tell Twilight). Moon leaves Thursday so think of her & her group as they travel to Kenya! Hopefully she brings Pocket Edward this time. That’s priority for packing in her suitcase. Who cares about clothes for poor kids.

    i am waiting patiently moon. 

    • ladyofthemeadow

      Hey UC, while we’re waiting with bated breath for Moon, can you tell me if you know what’s going on with the thumbsup/thumbsdown?

      I kind of miss it, kind of don’t. Just wondering. Thx.

      • TeamSeth

        Write a letter about it (apparently) ;)

        • ladyofthemeadow

          Hm. Not sure if I have enough content. Besides, I’m going to look like a loser if I admit I don’t like getting the thumbsdowns. I take it way too personally :-)

    Yey!

    Can’t wait, you lucky lady! (Muffin from Boo Boo? Can’t wait to hear that story!)

    Waiting, can’t say I’m being patient though.  Work has really been kicking my butt this week, so I’m having LTT withdrawals.  And now the excitement of CC!  They showed a clip from BD2? !

  • blondieinco

    I haven’t bothered to read or watch any of the other Comic Con craziness.  I’m saving myself (like Edward :) for your report Moon.

    there is too much information out there. I need you guys to break it down. In the meantime: HoShit Bel Ami Trailer!

    Some sites took it down, but uh…I may have sort of downloaded it. *looks around casually*

    • TeamSeth

      Like me and certain risque photo drunk tweeted last night… taken with the arm that never ends.

  • Sisterpenguin

    Ah young Moon… At your worst you’re mildly funny, generally you’re just hilarious (in the best possible way).
    Too suck up?

  • DANA

    Ooh I love storytime with Moon!
    But if you are suffering exhaustion, writer’s block or have been rendered helpless after breathing air shared with Rob, maybe we could get you started with some burning questions?

    Any sign of Bear or TomStu?
    Did KStew’s bra show thru in real life or just under flashbulbs?  ‘Cos one is forgiveable, happens to the best of us, but the other is just showing off.
    I saw group photos where the wolfpack actors weren’t tagged and I wanted to give them some love. Did they get any attention at all?

    Ok, go!

    • Stacey

      I wonder if there was some confusion between Bear and TomStu? I mean Tom’s REALLY hairy right now. Like mountain man or thinking he’s a werewolf hairy. 

  • youweregone

    I am really really afraid to ask this; but… does Rob check Niki out when she and the other ladies come to the table at the conference?

    • Anonymous

      dude, of course he does! Have you seen her? way hotter than Rosalie. The boy has eyes, after all. :)

      I was thinking there was some Roblia love goin’ on there… or maybe just wishing.

        RobLia FOREVER!

          OMG I remember this! It was like… a serious serious discussion about whether they were hittin’ it.

            oh they’re hittin’ it. true love style.

    (Raps fingers trying to be patient waiting.)

    As for me, I saw a sign for “Twilight Rd” today on this grey, cloud-covered day. My hubs actually spotted it and pointed it out to me. He got points for that. ;)

    • ladyofthemeadow

      Walking to work, I saw a guy with a t-shirt that said, “Why can’t vampires and werewolves just get along?” Cool.

      The strange part is that it was worn by a young Arab-looking guy walking with his wife who was wearing a niqāb, you know, everything covered except for a slit for the eyes. I wonder if she is a closet Rob fan?

      • TeamSeth

        I’d say she’s an open Rob fan. And he’s a Taylor fan. It’s like those “House Divided” shirts they make for people who are fans of 2 dif. state universities’ football teams. (wait are you in England?)

        • ladyofthemeadow

          Nope, I’m not in England, but I understand British.

          • TeamSeth

            Oh, it was in American.

          • ladyofthemeadow

            Got it :)

            I saw Arabic man with niqāb wearing wife today. Today’s tshirt said, “textually active”. I’m not sure what to make of that.

    • Stacey

      Your husband is awesome. :0)

    • TeamSeth

      I was at RiteAid the other night buying beer. They were out of my kind (bastards!) and only had pale ale, IPA (blech), and the seasonal summer ale…called Twilight Summer Ale. I had tried it before and knew it was satisfactory, so I bought a six pack. As i was checking out these guys walked by and called out, “Twilight!”

      Of course I immediately thought, “Oh my god how do they KNOW about those New Moon commentary tweets I just sent for the past 3 hours.” Then realized that no, they didn’t. Unless THEY are chrisweitz.  Very plausible.

      • Stacey

        Whoo Hoo Chris Weitz! BTW…your review of his new movie his coming out today on Talk Supe.  Like right now. (To be exact)

        • TeamSeth

          So I saw! :) (4 hours ago)

  • Bubs

    Looking foward to what is “Developed” and all the goss that goes with it. On another note…I just bought tickets to BD on line through my local Cinema [in Sydney, Australia]. Received an email last night-they’ve started selling them-yeah!!!! I immediately bought 2 tickets [Hubby n me] for the 9.30am session on Thursday 17th Nov. which makes it around 4.30pm [or there abouts] Wed. 16th LA time. 

    • Anonymous

      Wow!  They are already selling them?

  • Honeymooned

    please tell me that one of your videos include the BD clips they showed…I’m dying to see them!

  • Nelle

    Can’t wait for a breakdown of the honeymoon clip. All I could find online was the audio. Help us out Moon!

  • ladyofthemeadow

    Never thought I’d call myself a KStew lover, but I was struck by how normal, nice and friendly she was in those interviews. She’s also lost her Bella-like hand and facial tics. It has to be a deliberate change. Wonder if she got media training. Anyway, I thought she seemed really quite nice and sincere!

    • Gen10

      I agree.  Ever since her 21st bday, she has been acting all happy and shiz.  Makes me wonder if this is due to a gift from Rob, or just the knowledge that she is now an “adult.”  I like grown up Kristen much more than mumbling/fumbling Kstew.

      • ladyofthemeadow

        Maybe the schmexing with Rob makes her happy. It would have that effect on me anyway.

      • TeamSeth

        I think it would have to do with the fact she can drink openly w/out arrest concerns…so she’s just drinking more.

    • Anonymous

      And I was thinking she looked like she let Ashley manage her hair and makeup– she looked lovely.

    Thanks for the great report and pics. Hearing about it from your perspective is almost like being there, with the bonus that we didn’t have to wait in the sun for hours or sleep there overnight. (Although on the downside we also don’t have a NReed autograph on our water bottle.)

    Those tshirts? Crazy. Insane. Totally 2nd hand embarrassing. But hilarious. 
    Have a great trip to Africa, Moon!

    I’m loving that Bill Condon wore a plaid shirt. It’s a must.

    Have fun in Africa, Moon! I’m not sad there won’t really be any posts, because I’m going to be in Hawaii, myself!

  • Anonymous

    Awesome Moon, thanks for the report. I will settle for the photos and stories and skip the second hand embarassing questions.  I think we are all dying to find out about the two sneak preview movie clips

    Have a good time in Africa. 

  • Kaybvee

    I saw the Jacob/Cullen scene on twitter and heard AUDIO of the honeymoon one-yes, I listened to the whole thing a few times…”don’t take too long mrs. Cullen” eep! I can’t believe it hasn’t shown up anywhere!

    How was the honeymoon scene? With the actual video I mean?

    • Anonymous

      The audio only was torture, I had to stop after a few seconds.

  • The Old One

    Moon, I can’t read the fine print on that lady’s t-shirt, the black one:  It will be long, it will be hard, there will be no withdrawal __________? What in the world could it possibly be referring to?

    • TeamSeth

      Not sure if this is a joke (from you), but, when enlarged it reads:
      It will be long
      It will be hard
      There will be no withdrawal
      -Sir Winston Churchill

      And the date looks like 1900, but one would think it’s more likely to be 1940.

      • Anonymous

        I would have gone for the shirts alone.

  • TeamSeth

    I like the sheer bra shirt! I do it all the time. It’s like “I know you can see through my shirt, that’s why I’m wearing a sexy colored bra for you to see.”  Itty bitty titty club can rock the sheer tshirt / bra look. High five KStew!

  • Sam

    Here is a link to one of the clips. Perez has it on his website. http://perezhilton.com/2011-07-21-breaking-dawn-leaked-scene-from-comic-con

    Moon, its a lot quiter this year compare to last year?

    • cosi bella

      That’s what I thought – no where near as much bedlam.  Is this true Moon? 
      Is it…
      *sniff*
      ….the beginning of the end?

  • cosi bella

    As other have said thanks for the report – wow it’s a little like being there seeing it through your eyes!

    And man, that’s some extreme devotion to duty…  to withstand the extreme 2nd hand embarrassment of being associated with any gathering that includes a dude dragging  a Llama on wheels behind him – Oh ROFL!
