I'm actually a little concerned by the lack of Breaking Dawn merch at ComicCon - don't they usually unveil the minis and assorted other NECA Twilighty tchotchkes there? The only thing I've seen so far is this awful, sucks-to-the-nth-degree calendar (which we'll deal with in its entirety some other night) -
Just because few "official" items have come out doesn't mean that there aren't treasures to be had... As usual, the fans are way ahead of the curve, crafting their own merch to fill that gaping hole in their hearts that can only be assuaged by DIY OOAK Barbies...
How about a reproduction of Bella's wedding dress? You know it's coming! Perfect for your Twilighty themed wedding to your Edward or a sly nod to your love of Twilight that 99% of people won't get, so go nuts! Mr. Snarky is lucky we already tied the knot, that's all I'm saying. Our 10th anniversary is coming up early next year, though, so maybe we'll get dressed up and renew our vows. You know, just for kicks and giggles.
Some entrepreneurial ladies are already selling their version of the hair clip Bella wears in the wedding scene on Etsy.
There was a time when I absolutely would have worn this. Sadly, that time was the late 80s.
A slightly more wearable nod to Twilight is available here -
This comes with a lock of Robert Pattinson's hair in it, right?
I suppose ANY hand-crafted merchandise is better than the infamous "Bella's Womb" - AKA "the thing that kept the Pattinson Panties from being the #1 inappropriate piece of Twi gear that year" -
So what do you think is being concocted in some factory in China at this very moment??? Clever, fitted maternity tees for Hot Topic and elastic-waist maternity jeans in the Brass Plum section of Nordstrom? What will be the thing you'll NEED to add to your collection??? And how much effort will you put into hiding said acquisition from your S/O???
