they had on the board there a few places listed.. like houston (which i would think might be out now with the hurricane and so much they would have to do), chicago, seattle, LA, new york or atlanta. now of course this wasn't made by a mod so i'm guessing just some fans throwing stuff out there..lol

if it goes to houston, chicago or atlanta... scott can kiss my ass.. i'm going! LMAO anywhere else i can't swing it. cause the flight and stuff would kill me.

hmmmm.. they say it will be in 2009..wonder when? houston would be out i would think if it was around WM25..lmao. tho i may not be going to WM now so maybe i can take that money and use it on this instead!

uh oh....wheels are turning and turning..lmao

ok now i really dont know...im so confused. lol so dont listen to what i say. cuz i just read this now:

There is a promotional company based in Chicago working to put together a real twilight convention the weekend after the film comes out. They are working with the movie's casting director and the actors agents to make this a success. They are even trying to get Stephenie Meyer as a guest of honnor. They contacted us for help with contacting her. We gave them the only contact we had (seth) and they offered us a free booth at the convention. The booth would be something we set up to promote the site and fans could visit it at the convention. The man who contacted me said we have a great site and community (yes he joined) and noticed that I'm from IL where this is all happening.

damn that would be cool but so fast. i mean we have what 56 days before it comes out. i think so many people would be in shock at how well a twilight convention would do in certain areas. there should be like some official one and them travel all around that would be totally cool.

i noticed that the twicon will have some type of video thing going on the night they share their info. i just hope that i can watch it. cause i bet so many people are just setting and waiting..wanting to know.. like me..lmao

gah i wish i could! it's too soon tho. i couldn't get together the money. that's why i hope with everything that i can make the twicon one. but i'm not holding out for that one either...lol. i have to remember that i'm not the only one (hell there will be thousands) that won't be able to make these type things. such is life i guess when you have not enough money and live in the south where nothing comes or things are too far away..lol

a convention run by fans. it will be in dallas. they have no guests up other than twilight guy and the spoof people from youtube. they keep saying that they can't promise anyone else because even if they do like any other convention they can say yes and then cancel at last minute. i honestly don't think they can get any of them because they are just 2 girls that are fans and thought having this would be fun.

only 2000 spots. $255 to sign up. the covers the 3 days. you have to pay to get there.. your hotel and the hotel they are having it at cost $139 a night. plus all your own food. they will have some food but only like 3 times or something..lol they said they think it will be sold out by saturday to go ahead and get them now. not to wait for them to say if stars are going to be there.

any money that is left over from all the money collected for this, they said some will go to a charity. basicly...they are nonprofit and the rest of the money after paying all the fees and what not go in their pockets. the site looks good tho..lmao!

so what i'm saying is.. i'm not going Laughing it's not worth it to pay all that just to hang with 2000 fans and do whatever little things they have planned and see freaking tiwlight guy and the twilight spoof people from youtube?! yeah ok then.

kimmy today goes why are you being so negative. i go cause i have to be.. so i won't be let down..lmao. but honestly i still kinda am..haha but i'm also used to such things as well. at least i get to hang in nashville with fans and see the movie.. i'm big time yo! Rolling Eyes what will suck is if they do sign on a star and it's sold out..lol. oh well..

oh and some of the people that work on this twicon site.. got invited by some of the producers to attend the premier in LA. aren't they special! yet they can't get a yes or no from stars..lol i shouldn't laugh cause they will end up getting a star and i can't go..lmao

Tam, I thought the very same thing. 255 to meet no one? The pay to get there, stay in a hotel, pay for your food.. That could get highly expensive. I was very disappointed with what they we making such hype about.

i think a lot of people are disappointed. looking at what they are doing is stupid too.. 3 days of fan fic writing and paper writing. i don't think so. but i hope that whoever goes has fun.

Well i don't know but i have to agree with you Tam. And then at Premiere thing...but they can't get the actors or anybody to come. I dont know. LOL well i hope they will get anybody to come though, just for the fans that go and pay that kind of money. Does that make sense. I could say more but...erm the only other thing...the site looks great....LMAO sorry but thats the most positive thing i can say. LMAO

ya know that these "girls have this posted on their twicon site yet they made sure to keep telling people last night they had no confirmed people and repeated like a million times that even if they did they could cancel...


TwiCon 2009 is the premiere unofficial conference for Stephenie Meyer and the Twilight saga! The event will feature a Twilight movie screening, live Twilight inspired band performances, Volturi Masque Ball, opportunities to meet Twilight cast, dozens of breakout sessions, panels, workshops and more, as well as a Vendor Hall where dozens of vendors will be set up for your shopping pleasure. We will also have the Artistsí Alley, where you can display fan made art and goods.


that is false advertisement. if they aren't sure but trying it should be worded different. i also noticed that in their FAQ it says guests were "invited" i wonder if that mean we invited them to attend, but have no money to pay them..or we contacted them to come and are willing to pay. something is so weird about this. it was a big deal for this to be put out there last night yet it's nothing big. most of the convention is fan fic and how to write papers...yeah..haha.

I couldnt agree more. I think its really weird. To me it sounds more like a get together of fans...but what is the point in paying $255 for it? i don't get it. It just sounds really really weird.
