Artist Repaints Twilight Dolls with Stunning Results

Friday, November 2nd, 2012

Noel Cruz is a doll painter on Deviantart. But more than that, he’s an artist. He takes the special edition dolls created by Necca or Mattel, and repaints them, re-styles their hair, putting the work of the original artists to shame. If you’ve ever seen an official Twilight doll and thought “This doesn’t look like the character” it’s because it doesn’t have Noel’s amazingly detailed touch. I’ve never really bought an official doll in my life, but if they were as life like and impeccable as Noel’s, I would definitely have the entire collection by now. We’ve seen other doll repainters in this fandom before, but Noel seems to be the most active one, with work on dolls like Cher, Anne Hathaway, Angelina Jolie, Farrah Fawcet, Barbra Streisand, Michael Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor, Lady Gaga, Madonna and many more. He does seem to prefer Twilight dolls, as he has done many different repaints for each movie.

Repaint is a new form of pop art, wherein the doll’s face is treated like a three dimensional canvas, with the added challenge of painting within a very small area and an even greater challenge of recreating a real person’s likeness. Since dolls are basically miniature pieces, brush strokes and shading have to be very controlled and precise.

See the following dolls he repainted.

size of Fan Camp from 1200 to 1500 campers! Confirmation emails are going
out soon, so please check your inbox to see if your registration was
selected for camp, as well as further instructions and details.

Unfortunately, even with this increase in camp size, we still aren’t able to
admit all of the registrants this year (due to the overwhelming number that
we received!). Fear not, if your registration was not selected in the
random drawing, you will be notified via email today and will receive
instructions on how to add yourself or your group to the wait list.
Please read it carefully. You must notify us within 48 hours if you wish to
be added to the wait list. Please Note: No new registrations will be
accepted. The wait list is only for campers who received a registration
confirmation during the initial registration window.

Confirmed Campers: Please be courteous to your fellow Twihards! If you can
no longer attend, let us know as soon as possible at
bd2fancamp@lionsgate.com so that we can
admit campers off the wait list. Your confirmation is not transferable
(i.e. you cannot give it to a friend).

Please know that Summit is currently working on sourcing additional camp
space so that we can admit more campers, but until we do, please make sure
you get on the wait list in the event that there are cancellations.

Thank you for your patience during this entire process and, as always,

Twilight Fanbase Takes 3rd Place on Vulture’s 25 Most Devoted Fan Bases

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

Vulture made a list of the most devoted fan bases in the world, and Twilight came in at #3, surpassed only by Star Wars and Game of Thrones.

Twilight

POPULARITY: Books by Stephenie Meyer have sold well over 100 million copies worldwide; film adaptations are gigantic blockbusters in theaters and on home video; highest grosser Eclipse made $300 million domestically

FACEBOOK FOLLOWERS: 35.2 million

TWITTER FOLLOWERS: More than 1 million

FAN NICKNAME: Twi-hards, Twilighters, Team Edward, Team Jacob

MAIN HANGOUTS: YouTube, where Twi-hards like “nuttymadam3575″ can post tearful reaction videos, and Twilighted, where fan fiction flourishes (50 Shades of Grey famously got its start as thinly veiled Twilight fan fiction).

AVERAGE DEMOGRAPHIC: Teenage girls and women in their twenties who like their romantic fiction to have some supernatural spark.

DEVOTIONAL PROFILE: Every so often, Hollywood gets a reminder that young men aren’t the only ones who go to the movies in droves. It happened in 1997, when Titanic became a cross-demographic blockbuster that nonetheless earned most of its cash thanks to repeat business from young women. Still, the lesson didn’t truly sink in until 2008, when the first Twilight film earned a staggering $192 million from an audience that was almost exclusively female. The first film was well timed, arriving at the feverish peak of popularity for Meyer’s book series, and it made superstars of its three leads; the next three sequels would do even better, earning around $300 million each. Studios that had formerly been on the hunt for the next Harry Potter franchise now modified their search: Maybe, if they tracked the avid reading habits of young women, they could find the next book-to-film phenomenon in its infancy.

What was it about the Twilight series that fans sparked to? Partly, it’s the way the series flirts with sex (the bloody transition from human to vamp is a metaphor for the loss of virginity) while still remaining chaste enough that younger fans can be drawn in … at least until Edward and Bella have their honeymoon night. But Meyer was smart to stoke her fans’ passions with the central love triangle between Bella and her beaus Edward and Jacob; when battle lines were drawn online between those who were Team Edward and those on Team Jacob, it only increased the bond between the reader (or viewer) and Meyer’s story. Twilight fans are so ardent, in fact, that geek mecca Comic-Con had to start slotting its Twilight panels earlier in the convention to suit the Twi-hards, who regularly queue up days in advance for the film franchise’s panels, swamping the less devoted fans of Marvel movies and other comic-book blockbusters. Those boy-heavy fan bases bristled at the intrusion, but they’d better get used to it: The record-breaking success of Twilight on the best seller list, at the box office, and on home video is only the beginning of a femme-dominated genre force, not an anomaly.

What do you guys think? Is the Game of Thrones fan base stronger than ours?

Breaking Dawn Part 2 – Fan Camping Questions and Answers

Friday, October 5th, 2012

The fansites took all your questions, concerns, ideas and suggestions on the Fan Camping registration process for the world premiere of Breaking Dawn Part 2 in Los Angeles, and we sent them over to Summit, who made a comprehensive Q and A of the most asked topics. Please read carefully.

Is there an advantage to registering as an individual vs. as a group? If so what?
There is no advantage – you’re entered into the drawing one time whether you enter as an individual OR as a group manager. For group registration, only the group manager is eligible to be picked for the rest of their guests. Guests are not counted as individuals, but they receive one chance at entering as they would if they had entered as an individual registrant.

In the drawing, is a group considered the same as an individual?
Yes. See above.

How will it work for those who were selected but can’t camp? Can they still come to stand on the red carpet or the bleachers?
Only fan campers will be permitted access to the red carpet/bleachers to view the arrivals.

If someone is selected from the drawing but, due to unforeseen circumstances, can’t arrive at tent city at the time designated, is their spot forfeited?
If you do not arrive within your time window, you will move to the end of the line and you will not be 100% guaranteed to have your spot.

If someone has already booked their plane ticket and doesn’t get selected for the drawing, can they still come down to tent city to hang out and participate in events?
No, tent city and pre-red carpet events are for fan campers only.

If one member of a group can’t come at the last minute, will the entire group be turned away?
No, that individual’s spot will be forfeited. Following the drawing everybody will be ticketed as individuals but groups will be assigned the same check-in time.

How are wristbands being distributed? Are they being mailed or put on the day of arrival at tent city?
They will be distributed on day of arrival at the designated check-in times.

Is there a provision for people who are handicapped and unable to camp out? These people do have medical documentation to support this.
Yes, and these cases will be handled on an individual basis.

Do fans have to camp, or can they just get their wristband and come back on premiere day? If fans don’t camp out, is there any shot of seeing the premiere on the day itself?
Camping is required for red carpet/bleacher participation. This is the same as it has been in all previous years.

Is it 1,200 individual spaces or 1,200 spaces and another 1,200 group of ten? In other words, how many total people are allowed?.
There are a total of 1,200 individual spaces for all fan campers.

Do under-18s need the guardian staying with them so that both need to be selected, or can the guardian merely sign them in at the check in?
Guardians must choose the group option for registering with their minor. The guardian must register as group leader and be present with the minor at all times at the Fan Camp.

There is no guarantee fan campers are seeing the movie right?
Correct, we cannot guarantee access to see the film.

Group check in: does the entire group have to check in together at the same time if selected, or can one representative do it? There is some concern that if one person’s plane gets delayed that an entire group could be disqualified.
Groups must check-in together and any special circumstances may be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.

When fans register, will they receive an automated email confirming that their registration has been received?
Yes, there will be an automatic confirmation email sent out immediately following registration.

Will international fans have the same access to the drawing as domestic fans?
Yes.

Will there be a standby line?

There will be no standby line. There will be 1200 individual spaces for fan campers. If you don’t get a spot at the Fan Camp via the drawing you will not be able to attend.

GOOD LUCK EVERYBODY!
