“Twilight”

Even the most diehard members of Team Jacob can’t deny the romantic power of Bella and Edward’s first kiss. Kristen Stewart — who’s almost uniformly closemouthed about her off-screen relationship with costar Robert Pattinson — did offer “I get to kiss Edward Cullen,” when asked to name a few of her favorite things about the gig.

Creating the Perfect ‘Twilight’ Valentine’s Day

Here’s an article on having a perfect themed valentine’s day, found at

http://www.nextmovie.com/blog/twilight-valentines-day/

Turning your Valentine’s Day into a “Twilight-themed” date may not be the most original concept in the universe. Coupling the year’s designated day for romantics with the biggest fictional romance of the 2000s has been commonplace since the first book.

However, Valentine’s Day by its very nature isn’t unique. Everyone is expected to buy sweetheart gifts, chocolates, flowers, candy, champagne, crotchless undies, etc. on the same day.

You may as well embrace the tawdriness of the holiday. It’s more fun to dive head-first into it, rather than overthink it and stand on the sidelines, pointing out its flaws — you know, like critics do with “Twilight.”

Clothing
The great thing about vampires is they look awesome in outfits most people can never wear well. Capes, velvet, white satin, red contact lenses, black period garb, large silver amulets and long flowing coats all look better on vampires in “The Twilight Saga” than they’ll ever look on you.

Still, let V-Day be your excuse to wear that purple velvet cape you’ve had since your short-lived Renaissance Fair stage. You and your sweetheart have free reign to dress as vampire as you want to be. Go ahead and cover yourself in sparkly glitter paint. Once dressed, if there are woods nearby, run through them like you’re Bella and Jacob. Run through them like you mean it.

Flowers

 

Little, Brown Books

According to Stephenie Meyer, she isn’t sure why a ruffled tulip appears on the cover of “New Moon” because she wasn’t involved with the cover design. We can guess it stems from the idea that the ruffled tulip symbolizes perfect love. Buying a bouquet of those would be a nice gesture for even non-fans. Put the ruffled tulips in a black vase for fans, though.

If you’d like to forego the traditional flower gift, send your lover a fruit basket instead, filled only with red apples. If you have a dramatic bent, perhaps present one apple first in your hands like on the “Twilight” cover. If you’re a bit on the crazy side, you can take a bite from each one beforehand to symbolize your desire to eat the “forbidden fruit.”

Jewelry
Ladies may claim they don’t care about trivial gifts like jewelry on Valentine’s Day because they want to seem “above all that.” The truth is, though, they all become giddy with opening jewelry. (Trust me, I’ve been known to give a little jewelry…)

For newer relationships, you’ll want to start off with something like the replicas of Esme’s bracelet orRoselie’s necklace with the Cullen crest. Those are fun and sweet without much emotional weight. You’ll freak her out if you jump right to Bella’s sterling silver engagement ring. Save that until you’re ready to mate for eternity.

Candy
Obviously vampires wouldn’t eat candy, unless you count a chubby child with high glucose in his blood. Yet, you’re still human and should enjoy some tasty sweets. Necco started producing “Twilight-themed” conversation hearts after the first film. The flavors come in Passion Fruit, Tempting Apple, Orange Obsession and Secret Strawberry. I recommend eating one of each at the same and creating a candy fruit salad in your mouth.

The messages are inspired by the characters and actual dialogue: “Lamb,” “I ♥ EC,” “I Trust You,” “Trust Me” and “Live 4 Ever.” They’re fun to quote as melodramatically to your mate as possible. Or play a game where you both have to quote as much as you can remember from the scene it references.

Find these hearts at Wal-Mart and trendy stores like Hot Topic, as well as on Amazon.com.

Booze
Forget the normal champagne or wine. This is supposed to be a silly good time, so let’s go with shots! (Disclaimer: If you’re 21 or older, that is, or European.)

First up is one called, Vampire Venom. Take two packets of red Jell-O, mix it together with hot water and two cups of Cinnamon Schnapps. You can even mix in a little vodka for the brave. Pour the mixture into shot glasses and let cool in the refrigerator for four hours.

The next one is called the Blushing Bella. Combine equal parts Chambord raspberry liqueur, vodka and cranberry juice in a shaker over ice. Serve the mixture as shots and get ready to party. But please don’t drive, or run through the woods.

Movie
Dinner and a movie is a fairly typical date. However, since you’ll be vampires, don’t worry about dinner and focus on the movie selection. Chances are you’ve both seen “The Twilight Saga” multiple times, so choose another vampire love story. 1979′s “Love at First Bite” is a vampire rom-com starring George Hamilton as Dracula, who travels to New York to win over his love interest. It’s really fun, and Hamilton plays remarkably against-type as someone with pale skin.

For the more risqué (or inebriated), there’s “Embrace of the Vampire” (1994) with Alyssa Milano. She stars as a good Catholic who becomes caught in a love triangle between her boyfriend and an ancient vampire. As any “Who’s the Boss?” fan can tell you, anything with Alyssa Milano is awesome.

Romance
If you still have energy after the shots, it’s time for a little intimacy. First you’ll want to warm things up by reading some repressed love scenes from Bella’s favorite author, Jane Austen.

When the moment seems right, whichever one is braver will cool things down. Either walk outside in the freezing night or jump into a bathtub of ice. Get your skin as cold as you can stand, and then jump back into bed. Your mate will now experience what Bella felt like alongside Edward’s frigid body, and your perfect “Twilight” Valentine’s Day will be complete.

All about Alice: Ashley Greene

Here’s an interview with Ashley Greene, found at

http://www.teenvogue.com/industry/coverlook/2011/01/ashley-greene-teen-vogue-march-2011

The Twilight Saga‘s Ashley Greene moves from rising starlet to full-blown glamour girl—and dishes about her romance with Joe Jonas.

t’s not easy being Greene. Or rather, as Ashley herself says, it isn’t always easy. Yes, the winsomely pretty 23-year-old has a supercute boyfriend (one Mr. Joe Jonas) and a sizable role in the ultrasuccessful Twilight series, but that doesn’t mean that life is a nonstop cakewalk for the actress. “There have definitely been low points,” she admits. “Moments when I sit in my hotel room and want to cry! It’s fun,” she says of her fast-paced profession, “but it’s a lot of pressure. If you’re tired or run-down or having a rough day or missing your friends and family, you can’t just call in sick.” Right. The show, as they say, must go on.

But Ashley seems energized and downright cheery on the day of her Teen Vogue interview, which is conducted over a breakfast of scrambled eggs and tofu at the Crosby Street Hotel in downtown New York City. She’s recently signed a lease on an apartment nearby—she has another in Los Angeles, to which she moved when she was just seventeen—and plans to spend the afternoon scouting couches with her father, a construction-company owner who’s flown in from her native Jacksonville, Florida, to help. “Bless his heart,” Ashley says. “He’s getting the electronics together for me right now because he knows the deals and I know nothing.”

The new place, Ashley says, boasts a number of advantages, and the relative proximity to her family is among them. But she seems equally thrilled about the chance to live and work in the city. “I’m very much a girl that likes to have options,” she explains. “That’s the way I am with fashion, and that’s the way I am with my life. In California, I do like to just chill out and go to the beach, but I love the energy here. I feel very productive when I’m in New York.”

And being productive, she says, is key to her current definition of happiness. “I’m a bit of a workaholic,” Ashley explains. Despite her earnest admission that success in Hollywood does have its downsides, she loves her job. “When I feel like I’m not doing something, it drives me insane,” she says. Part of the urgency seems to come from Ashley’s sense that she’s at a sort of magic moment in her career, on the cusp of the kind of megafame that her costar Kristen Stewart found with the release of the first Twilight film. “This industry never stops,” she says. “Right now I’m in this amazing place, and there are open doors. I think it would be foolish to take a month off. So many people would kill to be in my shoes that it’s just bad karma!”

Ashley has no fewer than five films slated for release this year, starting with 1983-set coming-of-age story Skateland, which premiered at last year’s Sundance Film Festival and hits theaters this month. “I play Michelle, who’s about to graduate from high school,” she says, “and I’m kind of facing the ups and downs of that. I think it’s a very relatable film—we have love, loss, and heartbreak.” She’s even more excited about her turn in the upcoming comedy Butter, in which she appears opposite Jennifer Garner and Olivia Wilde. “It’s about butter carving, which, really, you have to Google,” she says. “People take these huge chunks of butter, as tall as me, and carve intricate things into them; it’s mind-blowing. I’d never heard of it when I read the script, and I remember asking my manager, ‘How do writers make this stuff up?’ But it actually exists.” In the movie, Ashley says, she plays a “typical rebellious teenager who goes from plain vanilla to basically being a stripper. It sounds ridiculous but it’s going to be really funny.”

She also stars with Demi Moore and Miley Cyrus in the upcoming comedy LOL. “I’m kind of like a bad girl in that film,” she says. “It’s a really big departure from Alice”—the sweet-natured, clairvoyant vampire she’ll play again in November’s Breaking Dawn Part I—”and as much as I love that character, I’m excited for people to see a bit of my range.” Ashley says she got along surprisingly well with eighteen-year-old Miley. “She’s young, but we could relate to each other because she’s probably been through as much as a 40-year-old!”

Of course, that’s not always a good thing: Just ask Joe Jonas’s previous girlfriend Demi Lovato, who checked into rehab after reportedly making threats against Ashley and getting into an altercation with a backup dancer on tour last fall. Their alleged fight is one of the few topics that Ashley’s publicist has declared to be completely off-limits. But when asked, in general terms, whether she has sympathy for the difficulties faced by some young, hardworking Disney actors, Ashley says, “Plenty of Disney kids are perfectly normal and love what they do. But you always hear about the people who aren’t doing well. It’s kind of like the squeaky wheel.”

Take Joe himself, for example. At 21, the former child star certainly seems to be doing well. Talk of him, too, was meant to be verboten, but Ashley seems happy to share her happiness. “We have a traveling relationship,” she says. “We met through mutual friends in London, which is crazy because we both live in L.A. And we’ve already met each other’s parents, which I think is a good result of the kind of lifestyle we live. He’s sweet and really funny, which is huge for me.” They’ve doubtless not been able to see each other as much as they might like, with Ashley shooting the last two Twilight movies, but she says that she likes to spend her limited free time cooking—with him. “I’ve got this amazing kitchen, and he’s getting me into it. It’s really nice and almost therapeutic; we put on music and just kind of go into this zone.”

Wisely, Ashley is utterly unconcerned about what Joe’s lovesick young fans might think of their romance. “There’s always going to be anti in this industry,” she says brightly. “But the thing is, I have dealt with anti before our relationship, and I will always have to deal with it. There will always be people who love me or hate me. That’s why I try to focus on the positive.” Growing up in Jacksonville, she recalls, “I just didn’t know what I could do. I didn’t think that I’d ever wear these amazing clothes, and I didn’t think I would be an actress. Now,” she says, “I’ve realized that I can do whatever I want.”

Amazing Fanmade New Moon Video!

I’ve been searching through a tons of fanmade videos from youtube and found one that I truly just love. It’s very moving and expresses so much emotion in it. It is probably my favorite new moon fanmade video of all time! Enjoy!!!

Here’s the info/description of the video first:

So, first, this is for an audition for a collab group…
And i know this isn’t my best video, but i couldn’t find better, cuz all my good vids, are collab parts :S

And, second, this is an AU video…
What if Edward cullen Died at in Italy with the Volturi ?
Well if he died, Bella would be soooo crushed !!
And that’s what the storyline is about…

Bella can’t stop thinking that Edward died. She sees him everywhere, when he is not there, it’s all in her head…
Jacob is there for her, but she just can’t forget about Edward. When Jake tries to kiss her, she refuses, cuz she remembers her kissing Edward…
At the end of the video, Bella is doing some motorbike and sees him, while she was going really fast. By seeing him, she loses control of the motorbike, falls, and dies.
( To make a happy ending ) Bella wakes up in Heaven, and she lives happily ever after with the one she love and will always love, Edward Cullen…

I hope you like the storyline, and the edditing…It took me quite a long time to make Edward disappear in the clips everytime…But i like the outcome 🙂
