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!

Nikki Reed gets some ink and we wonder what it could be…

R-o-s-e... I mean R-o-s-a... dang it I can't even spell it right!

Dear Nikki,

Word on the street (courtesy of your picture or tip to the rags) is that you got matching tattoos with your brother last week. Of course my mind started racing, thinking about what your tattoo could be… a name, a saying, a memorial piece commemorating your fake lesbianship gone wrong with Kristen. So of course I hit the emails to see what my pals thought it could be. Because what else is there to wonder about then your new tattoo and the endless possibilities of laughs there could be? Witness the resulting email train as we try to deduce what the tattoo could be…

@moon – nikki reed got a tattoo… your guesses for what the tattoos says or is… AND GO!

@brookelockart- my gut says it’s the shocker symbol and below it reads “Two in the Pink – One in the Stink.” All in cursive cause that’s classy

@calliopeblabs – it matches her brothers correct? therefore i’m going to guess it says “legalize it… sibling lovin'” OR “its ok in KY” i’ve no idea what sort of relationship nikki reed has with her brother. however… it wouldn’t surprise me. i mean, where exactly do you go after rob?

@pinkfluffgirl – Obviously, a bleeding heart and then  KSTEW 4EVA ….OR F U Rob….
“But I loved her first” is most likely. In Curly Cue font. Because that’s lipstick lesbian-y

@too_far_gone “he was mine, you skanky bitch”

@pinkfluffgirl – maybe “I BLEW HIM FIRST” would be more apropos

@moon – my guess? a withering loquat tree with the phrase “what could have been” underneath it?

RIP KS + NR + RP + MA
2008 – 2009 1/2

@brookelockart – What if they went his and her cholo and chola tatts?? Tattooed tears? She does look like she’d cutabitch.

@UC – “I FKD ROB” but that’s just what i’d get

@veryemerald – I’d go with tick marks like when you are counting by 5’s and the fifth line goes across the first four. Probably be easier to keep track of all the men she has been and will continue to sleep with to try and get that “Rob” feeling back. and when people ask she can make something up like “oh its just the number of time I’ve prayed with Kellan”…

@obird – One of two things: “Get a Bitch or be a Bitch” OR my favorite “Boobs in the Shoes”

@brookelockart – “CONFIRMED WITHOUT WORDS”

@tiffanized – It’s easier to guess what it’s NOT. Like it’s definitely not “Natural Blonde” or “True Love Waits”. My official guess is . . . a portrait of Catherine Hardwicke, since she obviously sold her soul to C-Hard in order to be cast as the most beautiful female vampire in Twilight.

@moon – tested and approved: hepatitis free!

Then the big guns started coming out… and by big guns obviously I mean bored girls with photoshop…

@obird – “I got your loquats right here”…..of course across her chest.

@proselyte3 – Pfft…it obviously states:   ‘I am relevant’
or maybe this…

DING DING DING!!! I think we have a winner! The perfect combination of bitchiness, anger and wistfulness all wrapped up into a little memento you’ll have forever, Nikki. If this is really it, we may never know… or we may just have to wait a few weeks till it heals and can be seen perfectly by the paparazzi lenses.

Call us if you want to reveal it exclusively on LTT!
Themoonisdown

So what’s your guess? What is Nikki Reed’s tattoo? A saying, an image, a dolphin jumping through a rainbow hoop with Rob riding on it’s back? Weigh in on your guess in the comments

BIG THANKS to the funny ladies who made me laugh enough to post this email! I’ve got an appointment to get a tattoo of you guys on my bicep right next to my Stephenie Meyer autograph tattoo! Follow these ladies: @proselyte3, @obird, @tiffanized, @brookelockart, @veryemerald, @too_far_gone, @pinkfluffgirl, @calliopeblabs

Time for a Newsdump: Everything NOT Twilight related aka Kellan shows us his Calvins!

Yo, it's about that time to bring forth the rhythm and the rhyme. I'm gonna get mine so get yours, I wanna see sweat comin' out ya pores!

Dear LTT-ers

I was just lamenting (yes it was quite sorrowful) on Twitter that there was simply NO news about Twilight out right now and that makes things awfully boring… but then I started researching and there’s TONS of non-Twilight specific news that our favorite friends are in… so let’s get to it!

  • The trailer for “The Runaways” comes out and I can’t help but think two things-  ONE: they look like little girls playing dress up and TWO: I hope Dakota gets to punch someone


Che-Che-Che-Cherry BOMB!!!

Wait, this isn't the Maxim cover shoot!

  • This is the prom dress you see on the rack at Goodwill and think, dude that would be perfect for my prom scene in “Can’t Buy Me Love” Halloween Costume (just right for doing the African Anteater dance in!)

All the Twilight news that’s fit to print – Unicorns and lots of BooBoo’s

Dear LTT-ers,

There comes a time every few weeks or so that we have to do a news dump because there’s simply too much news and not enough letters in the day. So here’s all the news we think you should know about but couldn’t cover.

Extra, Extra, Read all about it!
Themoonisdown

  • Our BFF Ashley Greene gets a Twitter and proceeds to lull us to sleep with tweets of her sleeping habits and stories of buying dog food. There’s something to be said about keeping the mystery, isn’t there? Love you BFF!
  • Dude, Xavier did you forget what I told you to say if Jackson invited you to a 100 Monkeys show!? Did he not think you were deaf or sick with food poisoning? In other news, HIGH FIVE for going with Ashley, maybe you’ll be the lucky SOB to finally figure out she’s a hot piece, while the rest of that numbnuts cast wonders why they don’t have a girlfriend, or why theirs smells of grease.
  • Both Melissa Rosenberg and Justin Chon dish that Eclipse will be a much “darker” film. No really? This is the book in that saga that contains the story of Jasper’s shady past, killing innumerable people, the turning and training of a newborn vampire army, the rape of Rosalie at the hands of her fiance, and fight training all culminating in arguably the saga’s most satisfying moment of conflict: the battle. So “dark,” you say? NO DUH!
Jacob hungry! Me want filet-o-fish!

Jacob hungry! Me want filet-o-fish!

  • New Moon Action figures go on sale at Hot Topic. Is it just us or does Jacob look a little “special” in the face?
  • Little Jacky is photographed with a boo-boo (not the kid playing Seth) Tuesday. No one knows whether it was his hand, his head or that terrible wig that was injured. I’m hoping he broke his hand after punching out the wig department after he saw his reflection in the mirror. Jackson Rathbone-r: kicking ass and NOT taking names!
  • Little BooBoo Stewart gets his first tattoo! Awww, they grow up so fast, don’t they? How friggin cute is this kid?!

Follow the cut for more news, shirtless Kellan and Jackson the Unicorn!

AmandDUH's at it again – Decode!!

Dear LTT-ers, train wreck lovers and video enthusiasts,

Our dear dear Twimom video vixen AmanDUh is at it again! And yes she’s gone back to covering songs and wouldn’t you know this time it’s Decode by Paramore. I about jumped out of my chair when I got the notification she had updated and she doesn’t let us down!

Looks like AmanDUH’s invested in a make up artist for this video. Yup she got eyeliner and what I can only assume is a  tear drop “tattoo” on her cheek. Now where I’m from that means something quite different that being sad. Thats just straight gangsta! Did she get in a prison gang fight at the ladies penitentury and kill one of her homies? DAAAYUM Amanduh’s hardcore! I better watch my back, she’s libel to cuttabitch. But really, I’m just glad she brought back “special” Edward for this video, I was beginning to miss him and his hairline.

Enjoy! And uh don’t turn up the volume too loud she hits a few notes that only dogs will be able to hear.

How did we get herAH?
