Second working title “Please don’t hate us!”
Dear Creation Entertainment TwiCon 2010,
As a means of satiating our Twilight/New Moon/Eclipse needs, Chelsea and I went to the Twilight Convention in Los Angeles at the grand old Marriott this Saturday. This would be part 2 of our crazy weekend…we hung out with KStew and Joan Jett on Thursday…but that’s another post! So as a continuation of our “Very Twi-Weekend” (Runaways Thursday, Remember Me Friday) we decided to go to TwiCon! Chelsea and I resurrected our Twi-alter egos as the hot busty Rosalie and Alice, and of course checked our dignity at the door.
We were running a bit late so we missed the Hillywood introduction but we were JUST in time to walk in and hear the sweet sultry sound of Chaske Spencer’s deep and velvety voice. He was doing the Q&A session and answering all kinds of Twi-related wolf pack questions. Like, “What’s your favorite fruit?”… *bitchface* Kiowa Gordon followed after Chaske and was a bit quiet, reserved, and a little shy. He got pretty comfortable after a while and jumped off the stage to walk around the crowd. He stopped to give a girl a hug and then recognized Chelsea from when she saved him from a pack of rabid fangirls at the New Moon red carpet line. He then performed a song with his band, “Touche”. Did you know he had a band? We didn’t either! Apparently it was their first live performance! Maybe he can play with 100 Monkeys! Hot Alex Meraz was next and was super hilarious! He did a spot-on imitation of KStew *stutter blink blink hand in hair stutter* being nervous before filming the scene where Bella hits Paul. Alex thought he would tease her by blowing her kisses…the Stew did not approve. He said after that she had no problem hitting him. After all of the Q&A we now knew all of their favorite fruits. Which is very crucial information…*bitchface*
Follow the cut to hear the rest AND see some Charly Bewley!
Soon after, Chelsea and I ventured out and walked around in the SAD vendor room, which seriously had about 10 vendors. Booths included the Twilight hand model, Twi-gear.com t-shirts, airbrushed “bite me Edward” tattoos, random jewelry, a lady selling Reneeseemeee (SP? Aw who the eff cares anymore) perfume, and the always awesome Hillywood cast. (They were the hosts!) We’re guessing Summit severely limited what could be sold there due to copyrights and whatnot. As we were walking around…we saw the following things:
-Homemade Twilight inspired shoes
-Blow-up/manillow Edward (HOW creeptastic is THIS?)
-Glitter wolf pack tattoos, fanny packs, Twi-moms, 9 year olds, 45 year olds, and lots and lots of merch with Edwards face on it.
However, the absolute highlight of our day was going to the hotel bar for happy hour at 4pm for ½ price wine and appetizers. Let me tell you, the pinot grigio REALLY helped all the 2nd hand embarrassment we experienced throughout the day. We headed back over at 5pm to see Charley Bewley, who plays the Volturi guard Demetri. HOT. Our jaws dropped when we saw him. I had always just known him as the quiet one with the bad makeup, but without the contacts and white face paint, he’s really, REALLY attractive. At one point Charlie mentioned that he used to sell stripper poles. Chelsea then shouted out “Give us a demonstration!” which was answered with mad approval from the crowd. Some girl jumped up on stage and volunteered to be the pole (Chelsea note: BITCH! That was my comment & idea! *sulks*) At this point we’re writhing in our seats due to quirky-British-sex-appeal…OVERLOAD. Charlie then proceeded to GRIND all over that lucky ass beyotch. Hips were grabbed, pelvis was thrust, audience DIED. *fans self remembering it*
They then opened questions to the audience and I IMMEDIATELY raised my hand and shouted out (Like I said, the wine helped). Hillywood called on me! I was given a microphone and asked the question that Chelsea fed me “Was filming the elevator scene as awkward as it looked?” Charley, who was on stage, jumped off the stage and walked to the other side of the room, realized then that I was on the opposite side, and made a B-line right for me and Chelsea. He walked right through the crowd and stopped an INCH from my face. Literally. Up. In. My. Grill. I’m talking, first date/ standing at the door awkward first kiss pose. We did the head bob/I’m not sure where my face goes/ lips or cheek? thing, finally he leaned in and planted one on my cheek. ZOMG *DIED* Meanwhile, fangirls are screaming and flashbulbs are popping. Charlie hopped up on the chair next to us so that everyone could see and continued to answer the question. I jumped up next to him while Chelsea scrambled for her camera and scooted around so she could snag pics (don’t forget we’re STILL dressed as Alice & Rose.) Charlie answered that yes, it was awkward because he felt that his character, Demetri, would have had some trouble in such a confined space with juicy Bella, aka he thought he would have wanted to eat her. Nom. He also said that Kristen kept glancing at him and he may have spaced out for a second or two. He said earlier that he thinks Demetri has some adult ADD going on.
After he finished answering his question, I jumped back down in my seat next to Chelsea and tried my hardest to compose myself. It took about a half hour for my heart to return to a normal pace. After our question Charlie answered two more (but we kind of weren’t paying attention after HE KISSED ME AND ALL) and then he said his goodbyes. Chelsea and I rushed out to the ticket counter to see if there were still photo-op tickets available. Money was no object. I threw my credit card at the lady (Chelsea note: No really, she THREW that sucker down on the table!) and $50 later we were on our way. We detoured to the ladies room to collect ourselves and figure out our game plan. We decided to try and be the last in line. It was such a tease after my close encounter that we had to investigate further. While waiting at the end of the line I was approached by a girl who told me that they had a picture of where it looks like Charlie’s making out with me. *Squee!* And then they told us we HAD to smell him. Smell him? “That’s normal”…right? Finally it was our turn, we walked up to Charlie and he exclaimed “Hey! It’s you!” We took our picture with each of us kissing Charlie on his cheeks, Chelsea on his right, and me on the left. A Bewley sandwich. Nom. And yes, he smelled Uh-MAZING! So good. SO GOOD. After our picture we hung out in the photo room while the last few girls took their pictures. When he was done, I asked him if he lived in the UK. “No, I live in Los Angeles” he said in that hawt accent. *Died* Then Chelsea jumped in with “What are you doing later? Want to grab a drink or something?” Charlie was a little flustered and asked us where we would go out. Chelsea and I both said “Los Feliz!” and he said “Oh I live around there.” I asked “Where?” And then immediately facepalmed, *stutter blink blink* “Uh, I mean, what neighborhood. Not where exactly!” We all laughed a little awkwardly and then he said “Well, I don’t go out much, where would you go?” We mentioned a few places and then he said that he had to stay and do the vampire ball and that that wasn’t until ten. I, of course, asked him if he needed a date for the ball, jokingly. He said quietly “I think they arrange that for me, like an Indian marriage.” Chelsea asked him what time he got done with it and he then mentioned that he was running a marathon in the morning. Boo. I said “Well, let me give you our numbers, just in case.” Chelsea grabbed a flyer and a sharpie and tried to remember her own phone number. The photographer started talking to him as he was waiting for Chelsea. I grabbed the paper from her and waited for them to finish speaking. He glanced at me out of the corner of his eye and reached his hand out towards me. I slipped him the paper with our numbers and he immediately stuck it in his pocket. Where I’m hoping it still is…and not at the bottom of the Marriot dumpster. He finished up with the photographer and someone told him he had to go….
And now we wait….
*Scrambling and tripping each other Ashley and Chelsea fight for the phone*
It was just the roommate.
But as we all know, “The Volturi don’t offer second chances.”
Damn….*still waiting by phone*
