Just what your Christmas Tree needs

Dear Twilight merch makers,

I can see it now. It’s Christmas morning and little Jimmy sneaks down the stairs at 3 am hoping that Santa has already been there to deliver his presents. And what does he see? Is it Mommy kissing Santa underneath the mistletoe? No.. it’s Mommy staring at the tree, with the lights twinkling in her eyes as she stares at this beautiful addition to the branches:


“Mommy? Why are you staring at a man about to devour an anorexic-looking woman’s face?”

(Jimmy is very advanced for a 4 year old- knowing terms like “anorexic” & “devour”)

Oh Jimmy.. Mommy is a Twilight fan. That means Mommy’s Christmas tree will have an ornament with a scared-virgin version of Bella (in a quite beautifully replicated wedding dress, I might add) with a figurine of Edward who really looks like he wants a human snack. Someday you’ll understand little Jimmy. Someday in 25 years when you meet the woman of your dreams, Twilight is going to make a come back– and your girl will be lost staring at a figurine dangling from the branches of a pine some Christmas morning.

Cause That’s Normal.

I mean, sorta.


HELLO: For some reason (and that reason was probably wine) a few people got the impression from this letter that we still haven’t shared the REAL reason we were together in LA last week. My bad. The real reason was seeing a few Breaking Dawn Part 2 Clips & chatting with Bill Condon. Sorry to disappoint since we already told you about that! But I didn’t want you to hold your breath (you’ve been doing that for 5 days now, right?) and think something MORE was coming. We will be able to talk more about that someday soon.. but that time is not now. Now is the time to dream of that sweet day in December (or maybe early November if I’m on top of it this year) when I can hand my new Twilight ornament on my Christmas tree)

Oh we FOUND IT at The Twilight Lexicon! Where there is a link to even more pictures (I think) if you really can’t wait until you can get this yourself at Hallmark.

ALSO: TN is coming soon, guys….. dun Dun dunnnnnn!

Oh It’s that time of Year! New LTT T-shirts!

Dear LTTers,

We’re so HAPPY to announce that we have new fashion for you to wear proudly for the Breaking Dawn season! You can put your embarrassing out-of-date Eclipse, New Moon & Twilight fashion away & impress the crowds with these new babies:

Breaking Headboards: If they do it onscreen, does it mean it’s real?

Forget your college sports wear this Fall football season, it’s Robsten-time

And of course we’d never forget you Nonstens! Robsten isn’t real! Denying it since 2008

What’s the theme for this year’s Breaking Dawn craziness? Um, all of the above?! #BreakingHeadboards2011

And we’re REALLY hitting our theme home with yet another Breaking Headboards 2011 design

The Cullens Don't Come hereAnd my personal favorite from the 2011 Collection: The Cullen’s Don’t go to Tiffany’s

In case the newest designs are too couture for you, but you really want something new for this year’s events, might I suggest a few pieces from past collections that are destined to be classics in any girls (or mans or child’s) wardrobe?

Moantreal: Where the magic happens








Alpaca Farm: Those animals love jorts









And how about a little something to wear to the Pattinson Family Reunion?



With all these options we are certain you will be the most stylish fan at your midnight showing, hottest host at your premiere party with friends, best looking mom showing up to a PTA meeting mere hours before the movie releases or least-creepy looking Holy Trinity stalker in LA in a month!

Shop LTT Fashion now!


PS: Thanks to the ever amazing @Snowwhitedriftd for the AWESOME new designs!!!

PS: It was posted later in the day yesterday, but don’t you dare miss Moon’s hilarious LTT letter!

Hot Tip: Occasionally hear an ad auto-playing? Mute works on the videos!

LTT interviews Stephenie Meyer: The never-ending story

Dear LTTers,

I must apologize for my lack of preparedness last week when I was on vacation- I didn’t have a story ready for you regaling the tales from our interview with Stephenie Meyer for Friday- I fail. But this week I prepared ahead! Yesterday morning on my 1 hour + drive into work, I re-listened to part of our interview and picked out some fun stories and audio we wanted to share. And let me tell you IT IS AMAZING- we’re gonna tell you what Stephenie would write were she to write a sequel AND who she fangirls over..

Alas, I have to apologize again. See…. we have to get all audio we post approved first- because Stephenie told us top secret things like Rob’s phone #, where she gets her telephonic lens for photographing the Robsten love nest and just how many headboards she and Nacho* broke on their Isle Esme honeymoon (Sandals, Jamaica 1997 baby!) Apparently those stories were for our ears only. Haha Suckas’ Anyway, because I submitted the audio yesterday, and apparently the world doesn’t work on my last minute time frame, I don’t have all the clips I wanted to share. HOWEVER, next week WILL rule, Promise- we even have an anecdote about when Stephenie snuck in to see New Moon in the theater!

This week will rule, as well. While the audio clips are few, I took the liberty of letting you in on some LTT secrets- what really was going on when the camera caught us in the room during the interview… it’s not what you think:

First up, we ask Stephenie about the crrrraaaazy Twilight Merch she has seen. Of course she’s too nice- that Stephenie, being kind to weird fans- although…. she lets us know how some crazy merch makes her feel:

SM Merch by letterstotwilight

Wait- back up… did you hear what Stephenie said up there? You know how we do this- let’s repeat that one line she said, one more time:

SM 2ndHandEmbarassment by letterstotwilight

It was during a question asked by Twilight Series Theories when Stephenie discussed Edward’s reluctance to turn Bella into a vampire. She recalled a story she read on LTT, written by our very own Alice_NaA:

SM PhysicalPain by letterstotwilight

By the way, I talked to Alice_NaA recently because she went for waxing session #2. She said the 2nd time wasn’t so painful….. And I told her,

UC: “There goes our Vampire metaphor, then. Are you saying waxing is more like a metaphor for losing your virginity? The first time- “kill me I’m never doing that again” 2nd time.. “okay… I could get used to this..”
Alice: “Yeah… that’s a good metephor! Apart from the fact that I’m not gonna be telling my dermatologist ‘Oooo… right there’  the third time…”

Happy Friday! Catch up with all the other Stephenie Meyer Interview Recaps you may have missed!

*Just because ever since we found out she reads LTT I’ve felt weird and never said anything- I feel we need to explain why we refer to Stephenie’s husband as “Nacho.” One day, Moon wrote about him and lovingly referred to him as that. I thought it was intentional, but it was not. It was an honest, hilarious mistake. And ever since that’s just become his name. We love Nacho. Mmmm Nachos…. Damn, I’m hungry.

What recession?

if you can get a dude to wear his n her lion n lamb necklaces you have far bigger problems than the recession

Dear Hot Topic,

I just read this news item from the New York Times and it says…

“While sales at most stores plummeted last month, the teenage retailer Hot Topic enjoyed a 6.5 percent gain, thanks mostly to brisk sales of gear inspired by Twilight, the teenage vampire movie.” [NYT]

All I have to say is: YOU’RE WELCOME!

While companies like Microsoft and Yahoo are downsizing and laying off thousands by the day you’re still going strong profiting off the obsession of freaks like me and all you gals here. Oh and my mom. Who knew selling crap like bandaids and buttons and $6.00 patches could keep a mall store afloat?

where do they get the toolbags who model this stuff?

where do they get the toolbags who model this stuff?

But you’re proving them wrong! Now if only you could sell the official calendar you might single-handedly save our entire economy. Are you listening Warren Buffet and Barack Obama? Get the Hot Topic folks in your financial cabinet and watch our economy bounce back. Now THAT’S change we can believe in!

Studded belts and pink hair dye,

Buy more crap!

Don’t wanna waste your money on more crap for Valentine’s Day? Why don’t you make something instead?! That’s right, enter the Twi-alentine’s Day Contest!! NOW! Prizes being announced shortly!
