It’s time for New LTT & Breaking Dawn FASHION

Dear LTT,

All right LTT ladies!! It’s time for you guys to come up with new t-shirts for us that we can wear to the breaking dawn part 1
premiere. Come on. Where have ya’ll been? It’s time for new designs!! Wait, Moon’s was in Africa doing good deeds? That’s a good excuse, but I know UC isn’t doing anything but trying to get us to vote for her hot tubs or something (don’t worry, I clicked the link and voted for something I have absolutely no clue about! That was for you UC!) So, no excuses! And I think to speed the process up a bit at LTT, you guys should hold a design contest for the ladies and unicorns of LTT (god knows they’ve leaked us enough material to work with)!

So to start us off, here are a few of my own completely unoriginal gems (ALL stolen from LTT jokes of course):

  • a Pier One store with a truck out front that says “Isle Esme bound” (you guys hit the nail on the head with that one)
  •  “STOP – TWIST – IMPRINT“ in “Leghitch – Imprint– Hunt” style
  • *Seriously* –> And we ALL want: “Headboard 2011” with cartooned-Rob-arms breaking that sucker down
  • Finally, can I just get that pic of TomStu (you know THAT pic –furrystu) on a t-shirt…maybe with some unemployment stats under it?

Anyway, this is my humble suggestion for how we can be most fashionable going into Breaking Dawn Season

Love you guys!
HowToBe

Great idea, HowToBe! While I love the designs we have in the LTT/LTR store, I think we could use some new ones to freshen it up a bit (Is our designer listening!?) First, I have to apologize for using the f word in both picture captions so far. I blame that on still being tipsy from our Hurricane Irene party yesterday where we just drank away our hurricane fears (which amounted to a lot of beer bottles loose in the street) But anyway, Here are a few ideas I’m adding to the mix:

  • PROUD KRISBIAN using this picture (why? WHY does that exist!)
  • “Real or Not Real” on the front with “ROBSTEN?” written on the back. I think combining the Twilight & Hunger Games fandoms guarantees more sales, don’t you?
  • “Isn’t this thing over yet?”
  • LTT: Promoting Birth Control since “Fade to Black”
  • JUST SAY NO (to combining your mom’s names to come up with a new one)
  • I heard that sports teams always have t-shirts printed up ahead of winning (or losing) a super bowl/word series from a friend who loves sports so we should make sure to have a ton of the following pre-printed for the END of Breaking Dawn and the eventual Robsten break-up OR wedding: “Told you so” for the Nonsten Team and “True love, bitches” for Robsteners
  • Breaking Dawn, subtitle: The Incredible, Edible, Egg

What do you think? Should any of the above be on new LTT/LTR T-shirts & merch?

Speaking of merch, we still have stuff from that “box of Crap” Stephenie Meyer sent us last year and I’d really like to get it out of my closet. So how about you come up with good merch ideas in the comments today & we’ll pick a few favorites to send prizes to! Good luck. May Buttcrack Santa (RIP) be with you always.

Love,
UnintendedChoice

As I was writing about I had the BRILLIANT idea of “Fade to Sad” which of course we already BRILLIANTLY thought of (Or Stacey, our designer did) and I’m pretty sure this is the design we gave Stephenie. So funny. Why I don’t own this iPhone cover yet, I don’t know. Fade to Sad

LTT is much more than UC & Moon… err or Twilight, which is what it’s mostly about…

Dear LTTers,

I like writing random, rambling, long blog post titles that mess up your phone if you try to read the letter online or stretch the screen if you use a computer. It’s fun. Especially for Friday. It’s the little things, guys!

Anyway, in keeping with the celebratory tone of our 2 year anniversary, we wanted to share a few short letters we received this week as well as some pics I’ve been hanging on to for a time such as this- submissions by YOU ALL of you & your LTT merch!

Dear Letters to Twilight,

I met my LTT Cosmic Twin!

One fine day, I was cracking up reading the LTT comments when one commenter’s opinions kept catching my attention. We had sooo much in common… in only one day of comments: a love of Twilight, a hint of snark and humor, 3 year old daughters who didn’t sleep the night before, and the same name! (Not to mention a love of Somerhalder, Skarsgard and that cute, little chain smoking monkey-Mr. Robert Pattinson!) I ended up replying to her that I though she was my LTT doppleganger… and that’s how West Coast Stacey (snowwhitedrifted) met East Coast Stacey.

We ended up being pen pals, well email pals nowadays, ’cause who uses pens? Then twitter buds and we realized we were cosmic twins. We became each other’s enablers, writing fan fics as well as a co-authoring a bunch of letters to twilight posts… and now we have a blog to discuss all the juicy goodness of this ridiculous little world we have found. This downward spiral has been one heck of a ride and I’m so glad of it! Thank you, LTT, for the magicness!

-The Staceys
(snowwhitedrifted and East Coast Stacey)

This LTT girl takes a picture with someone familiar looking before heading to feed the alpacas with the snacks she keeps in her LTT girl bag.

UC and Moon, you have helped keep the Twi-love alive. Here’s a pic of me when I went to Port Angeles and Forks this past summer with two Twi-friends, repping LTT with my favorite tote bag ever. We made total fools of ourselves, spending the extra five bucks to stay in the Twilight room at the hotel, and sporting fake wolf pack tattoos for our trip to La Push. Cause that’s Normal.

The following collection features some fangirling from: Twiwind Night – ICanHandleIt (proudly wearing jorts), VoteMeIn (wearing a Tweed Serious shirt and leg hitching) & EJ

And Cledbo reads printed out fan fiction, rocking her “Fade to Sad” shirt while wearing hot red heels. That’s Normal.


These girls look like they’re in a bar that happens to decorate itself in Twi-photos. Aka a DREAM bar. Or in reality they’re just Tweed Serious at one of their homes, but shhh- I like living in a fantasy world where a bar’s walls are decorated in Edward & Jacob & Rainier Beer is the only thing on tap

KandnandB rocks the I love British Boys book while wearing her “Big in Japan” t-shirt. Ya know, just a normal Friday night

They’re not Bears!!! It’s a muscled Jacob Doll, in a public space. (And a VERY brave girl!)

I’m bothered that snowwhitedrifted’s Bothered shirt is backwards in this picture:

And Obava travels to a far off land & brings her LTT shirt along- we’re so proud! So is her son. (He’s too young to be embarrassed yet!)

These pictures make me so happy! Nothing is more fulfilling than making a bad joke with your friend Moon over instant messenger one night, posting it on a blog the next morning, seeing people’s reaction to said bad joke & then seeing the joke ON a tshirt in a bar, in a foreign land, on a bad, feeding alpacas, embarrassing your families, etc. etc. etc!

Thanks to everyone who submitted pictures recently & so long ago! And I’m sorry if I didn’t put your fake name on here- I had the files saved with your real names & figured you didn’t want those shared. :)

And in case you missed my comment on Wednesday, I had a horrific day at work and after my 10.5 hour work day, 2 hours driving & when I finally hit the pillow and looked at all the comments on my phone that night, I was so overwhelmed with all your love! I appreciate each & every one of you! I’m being Tweed Serious.

xoxo,
UC

(PS: If you have something from the LTT/LTR store, send us a picture- we’ll feature it eventually!!! And if you don’t own anything- DUDE! Put it on your Christmas list! And snowwhitedrifted made some new designs we’ll be unveiling any day now :):) Wearing shirts about vampires & werewolves is normal: Buy some now!

The Four Weeks of Twimas – Get Your Shop On!

Dear LTT-ers and LTR-ers,

It’s that time of year again, black friday is around the corner and the holidays are upon us. That means it’s time to stock up on gifts and time for us to clean out the LTT LTR store and make room for new stuff!

Over the next few weeks leading up to Christmas/Hanukkah/Solstice/Festivus/Jewmas whatever you celebrate we’re gonna highlight some of our favorite (twilight and NON twi related) stuff we’ve come across from either our sponsors, our friends or just our aimless wanderings across the web that might make a good gift. And today we start with the LTT/LTR store since it’s closest to home AND since today is the last day you can use the Friends and Family discount at Cafe Press!

Need to write down your deepest darkest secrets (you tried and hated Hot Pockets) or need a place to write down story ideas for your latest fic or maybe you just want an exact replica of the notebook we gave Stephenie Meyer (Fade to Sad version of course!) then hit up the notebooks. The cool thing about the store is that most designs are available on a variety of items so mix and match till your hearts content.  12.99

Have an iPhone? Need a cover that professes your love for Twi and Rob but don’t want to draw attention to the fact you may have downloaded the official Twi app? There are a beavy of iPhone covers for you! 3 and 4G versions! 24.99

Cause your tree or that Secret Santa gift exchange with your Twilight friends isn’t complete without a LTT/LTR themed ornament! UC and I have a personalized one with our bright shining faces on it! May I suggest the Buttcrack Santa one? 8.99

Ok so probably the thing I’ve used the MOST from the store is my SIGG water bottle in the Breaking it Down design. That thing has been to Kenya and back, all over LA and resides in my handbag at ALL times. BEST.THING.EVER. 27.99

Tons of baby gear in the kiddos section. We know we’ve had a few LTT/LTR babies born since we started so get em decked out in ironic onsies and bibs about vampires, duh! Same goes for your pooch. Your Chihuahua better represent for the wolfpack or he’ll be the shame of the dogpark

And really what else solidifies your bff-ship with someone like a pair of Fake Lesbian boy shorts? In pink of course. Make your friend AND their husband/boyfriend/fake lesbian partner happy! 15.99

Get at it pals only 31 days left!!!
Moon & UC

PS if you buy something from the store don’t forget the friends and family code to save moola! Meaning you can save $10 on orders of $50+ (use code: Friend10) from November 20-23. LAST DAY IS TODAY!

Have something you want us to feature/review/sponsor in the 4 weeks of Twimas specials? Email us and stay tuned for our fave stuff in the coming weeks!

Have you bought anything from the store? Share your favorite stuff!

There’s an (Twilight) app for that!

(Today Freya gets all tech-y on us and talks about her iphone and Twilight… there’s a post for that! xo, moon)

none of the above!

Dear Twilight:

I’m a total iPhone fangirl. I’ve had my 3GS for over a year now, and I am an app whore. I love the fact that iPhone advertises that “there’s an app for that.” Because it’s so true. And as we recently discovered (and UC discussed on Letters to Rob), there’s even an app for stalking Rob! So you can conveniently know where Rob is two days after he appears there. And so you can also get incensed and start your “Respect Rob” campaign afresh (or whip out your jazzhands and “Disrespect Rob Nice and Slow” with me).

Anywhoodle, it got me thinking about what kind of apps the rest of the Twilight cast might have, if they were so popular. What kind of things are being slaved over by the application developers of the world RIGHT NOW? Without further ado, here are some of my ideas. (If you decide to develop these, bitches, I want a cut!)

  • Justin Chon’s Disco Double Pack!
    In an excellent value for your money, the people behind Justin Chon, AKA “Gaysian Eric”, are offering two applications for the price of one, both marketed to the ladies. The first app is The Gaysiandar. Most women have to rely on their intuition to figure out if a guy is on her side of the fence, or on the other side. This app, which mysteriously uses the landscape and portrait orientation function to identify another kind of orientation, is to help those clueless girls out, and to save them the heartache of falling for just another fabulous face.
    The companion app is entitled “How to Hag”. For all you aspiring hags out there, you, too, can walk in the footsteps of Angela…ummm…anyone who wants to have a gay boyfriend. Some tips include “don’t be too attractive; if you are, cover it with nerdish glasses” and “be slightly taller than your gay boyfriend, so if you’re ever tempted to kiss him, it will be extremely awkward.” Words to live by, ladies.

    There's an app for that

  • Kristen Stewart’s Bitchface!
    A photo editing app, this one will slap a mildly uncomfortable grimace or a wryly sardonic raised eyebrow on the faces of your family and friends. Imagine the hilarity of showing off your family reunion photos, with everyone from Aunt Gladys to cousin Earl to Granny Marie with matching bitchfaces! Or the fun of sending a sexy bitchface photo to your Stew-lovin’ boyfriend or husband! You can also buy bonus effects from the app store, such as “awkward feet” and “flipping the bird.” You can also buy the “Copstache” effect for an additional .99 cents. Fun for the whole family!
  • Kellan Lutz’s Protein Calculator and Modeling Tips
    How much protein is in a ziplock bag of hard-boiled eggs? Kellan Lutz knows! And now he’s bringing those secrets to you! Just type in the name of the food you’re going to eat and the calculator lets you know how much protein is in your meal! This app also offers tips on how to look your best at a photoshoot (“Take off your shirt, but not if you’re flabby,” “Oil up your muscles, maybe even with real crude oil,” “carry a manly prop, like an axe or a wrench” “use a sock”). Kellan’s voice offers encouraging phrases when you fall behind on protein consumption. Hear him say “You can do it!” “No, really dude, you can do it!” “For real, you’re awesome, and can do it!”
    (Side note: I think my gay boyfriend has already downloaded this app. But he uses the encouraging phrases for “recreational” use, if you know what I mean.)

    There's an app for this

  • Dress Me Up Taylor Lautner
    In the style of virtual paper dolls, you can dress Taylor up, or dress him down! With a plethora of black suits and skinny ties, he’s ready for a premiere, night on the town, a press junket, an awards show, or just a quiet night at home. Also included: track pants, basketball shorts, karate outfit, and a variety of pop and Disney stars for accessories.
  • Nikki Reed’s Does the Carpet Match the Drapes?
    Well, we all know the eyebrows didn’t match the hair. In this fun matching game, make Nikki’s sartorial selections for her! Match curly red with long straight blonde. Black and bald? Or bald and black? You make the call! Points for the most attractive coiffure, both north and south, will win you bragging rights with your friends!
  • Michael Sheen’s Intimidating Evil Laugh
    Much like the vuvuzela app, this app doesn’t do much. It just repeats Michael Sheen’s amazing New Moon laugh over and over again. Frighten pets, annoy your friends!
  • Xavier Samuel is Hot
    This app offers a daily photo of Xavier Samuel to remind us of his hotness. That’s all. Do you really need more?

    There's an app to remind you!

  • Solomon Trimble was in Twilight
    This app synchs with your calendar. Once a day, every day, at a randomly chosen time, an alert will pop up to remind you that once upon a time, Solomon Trimble was in Twilight. Seriously. He was an original Wolfpack member. And don’t you forget it!
  • Buttcrack Santa Sings the Blues
    Since he couldn’t get an album deal, Buttcrack Santa now does a podcast. Accompanied only by his lonely blues guitar, he sings his original tunes with such catchy names as Animal Attack!, Hot Girls Suck (Your Blood, Not Anything Good), and Don’t Rock the Boat (There are Vampires Inside).
  • Dakota Fanning Countdown Clock (AKA “The New Legal In Georgia”)
    Most Twi-related crap is marketed for the females; this one is for the gentlemen. As advertised, this app will count down until February 23, 2012. The Runaways was very confusing for some gentlemen, thanks to Dakota and Kristen and their kissing, so in case a reminder is needed, this app is here to help!

Be watching your App Store for these and other fabulous Twilight releases, coming soon! Remember: TWILIGHT: There’s an app for that!

Love,
Freya

There’s an app for how awesome our vacation letter writers are! Make sure you’re following them and show your love!

What app would Big Daddy have? How about David Slade? What kind of app do WE here at LTT/LTR need?

And don’t forget to participate in While Moon was Gone!

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!

UC Here: Don’t forget, Moon is gone for forever (or so it seems- oh yeah- she got to Kenya safely- YAY!) so contribute to While Moon was Gone
