Eye Con This Weekend

Possibly Twilight’s most underadvertised convention happens this weekend and there are still tickets available.  Guests include Peter Facinelli, Kellan Lutz, Jackson Rathbone (with 100 Monkeys), and Edi Gathegi.

You can buy both weekend and event only passes. So, if you are looking to check out 100 Monkeys this is a great opportunity to see Jackson and the band.

So, if you are in the Orlando, Florida area you may want to check this out.

Peter Facinelli and Kellan Lutz Ham It Up

Peter Facinelli and Kellan Lutz reenacted some of Twilight for the crowd at the Creation Entertainment convention this past weekend, only Peter played Bella and Kellan played Edward. TY to Sita.

EDITED: Via Twi-crack you can also now find out what exactly Peter was whispering in Rob’s during the transformation scene.

Twilight Conventions: A Fan’s Viewpoint

People ask us all the time:

What’s a Twilight Convention all about?
Is it worth the money?
Do you really get to meet people?

Obviously every fan experience is different, but the Cullen Boys Site has a fan write-up of the latest convention put on by Creation Entertainment. Creation has been in the convention business for several decades and is known for putting on top notch shows for a variety of fandoms.

Alphie and Pel  are going to be at several up coming conventions this year: Summer School in Forks Symposium in June ( these folks have been running successful Harry Potter conventions for years), The Creation Entertainment Saulte to Twilight conventions in Atlanta (July), New Jersey(August), Chicago(October), San Fransicso(February)  and possibly other Creation Events.

New Moon Actor Appearances

Some of the cast, still no clues which ones yet, are going to be at ShoWest in Las Vegas. They are going to be on hand to receive an award from Fandango.

Don’t worry, MTV’s Larry Carrol is there to cover it. You can see how excited he is to have found the New Moon poster (again a stand-by for now until they shoot the real poster this summer). By the sound of his blog he’s a little lonley. Give Larry a shout out if you are there.

Peter Facinelli is going to be appearing at London Film and Comic Con on July 18th and July 19th.

The event is going to be taking place at the Earls Court Exposition Center.
