Birthday Give Away #1: Edward from Tonner Dolls

This month we celebrate FIVE years on line with the Twilight fandom!  We posted a podcast a few days ago answering the questions you asked us about various Twilight moments and trivia.  Every Thursday this month we will be holding a giveaway using questions from that podcast as your way to enter the contest and win amazing prizes!  This is our way of saying thank you for all the support you’ve given the Lexicon for the last five years.

This week we have the Edward doll named Distant Devotion from Tonner Dolls.  If you would like a chance to win this prize, leave a comment below with the answer to this week’s trivia question.  This contest is open to everyone who has a mailing address!  We will leave the contest open for 48 hours and will choose a winner on Saturday March 5.

This week’s question is: Which actor does Lori (Alphie) name as changing the way she saw the character from the book, and which actor does Laura (Pel) name as being just how she saw the character from the book?

This week’s prize: Distant Devotion Edward from Tonner Dolls

Remember, all of our birthday giveaways are open to anyone, anywhere in the world. It doesn’t matter where!

    Happy twilightlexicon birthday! Thxs for all that you do!!!!

  10. Alphie says Billy Burke as Charlie and Pel says Gil Birmingham as Billy Black.

    I usually see characters a certain way when I read the book and am sometimes disappointed by the movie rendition. In this case, I saw the Twilight movie before I read the books–that’s how I discovered the books–so I have always pictured the characters as the actors who play them. I think they are all perfect!
