Twilight Central, AKA Our Apartment

I just went around the apartment (and out to the parking lot) to take pictures of all our Twilight merch, and I will just say that I’m going to have to do something special for Jeremy when he gets home, like spend all day making his favorite meal or something because I just realized exactly how tolerant he is of me and this Twilight obsession I have going on. As you will see with this post, he is really, REALLY indulgent of me.

Also, please no emails or comments signifying your concern for me after seeing all the stuff I’ve been hoarding. I know, ok? I know I’m a total weirdo. I need Twilight rehab, but if there even was such a thing, I wouldn’t go. If loving Twilight so much is wrong, I don’t want to be right! (Sorry if some of these are blurry, I have a crap camera). CIMG2133 This is one of the three Twilight posters in our living room. The things hanging down from the ends are the Twilight dog tag necklaces from Wal Mart that I practically went through hell and back to try to get. Jessie and I are planning on wearing these to the midnight showing of New Moon in November. Jeremy doesn’t think so now, but he will be wearing one too.

Poster number 2 in the living room

CIMG2021 This is the third poster we have, incidentally the first one we bought. It’s sharing the wall with one of Jeremy’s Beatles posters. See? We can live together in *singing* haarmonnyyyy! Funny story, my mom came over not too long ago and scoffed, “What are all these Beatles posters doing in here?” like our entire apartment should be just Twilight. Heaven forbid I actually allow Jeremy to display his things in our apartment. Oh, my mom. She’s so silly.

Next, we move into our closet sized kitchen. Twilight even managed to find it’s way in here too. CIMG2140 I was at another Wal Mart in our area (not the one in our town, nothing Twilight related in that hell hole) and saw these in the dollar aisle. Of course I had to get all three. They’re collectibles! I haven’t even opened them to try the candy inside. I’m curious to see if the hearts are actually sparkly.

Then there is the refrigerator. As soon as I saw the magnet set at Hot Topic, I had to have it. I still think that was a cute idea, although they need to work on the quality. I nearly tore that Twilight text logo to pieces trying to remove it from the packaging. CIMG2141 Hey, wait? What is Edward looking at with such smoldering, sexy intensity? Who is that hot beautiful beotch that Edward can’t take his eyes off of? CIMG2143 Oh, yeah. That’s me! (and that’s one of my senior portraits. I don’t usually pose for pictures like that, in case you were wondering) I think you’re pretty hot too, Edward. In fact…I-

Sorry, I got carried away. In a way, having Edward on my fridge is a good thing. I go in to superfluously snack and Edward is there to distract me. Edward Cullen is my diet plan!

Ok, moving on. Lets head down the hall. CIMG2028 We used to just have that Monet print. Classy and cultured, right? Well, it was missing some Twilight, so I took care of that. Now it’s perfect.

On to the bedroom. This is where the magic happens (unneccesary MTV Cribs refrence!) Jeremy was even so gracious to even allow Twilight to permeate here too. Super sweet (and smart) of him. CIMG2148 This is my favorite Twilight item in the house. It’s the giant 5 ft (that’s 10 inches taller than me!) Edward Cullen poster. This is only available at certain Blockbuster stores, and luckily I found it at our local store on first try. I absolutely adore it. Jeremy even helped me hang it up! It fits in with the bedroom since our decorating “theme” in there is black and white. Plus, I was already picturing him in there enough (oh snap!), so I’m glad we made that happen.

This is my bedside table. That GQ cover is gorgeous and I have the interview Rob did behind the cover in that frame too. The funky looking CD is the Twilight movie score soundtrack (thanks Jessie!) and under it is the Twilight:Director’s Notebook (again, thanks Jessie!). The prints on the wall are pencil drawings of New Orleans (my family is Cajun) except for the eye drawing. I drew that in high school art class.

I really need to change my flowers, huh? I’m trying to keep up with that. CIMG2149 Now, lets step outside to head downstairs. On the way to the front door, this is what we see every day. CIMG2168 Those are the party favors I got during the Twilight DVD release party at Hot Topic in March. I promise, a post with videos and pictures from that night is coming soon. I’m having issues uploading the videos to you tube (i.e, I can’t do it), but stay tuned because that post is coming very soon.

Also, ignore the bratty message Jeremy scrawled on our message board before he left. He lashes out any way he can, poor guy.

On to Jeremy’s truck, parked downstairs. This is the full proof of his love for me, that all the world gets to see as we drive around. CIMG2130 That’s right. We represent every where we freakin’ go. Apparently though, Jeremy has caught some flack for these stickers at his job. When the Team Edward one was pretty new, his boss came in to the office and said, “You know what Jeremy? Team Jacob. Team. Jacob.” Jeremy was a little confused until he remembered. It’s a running joke among his coworkers, which I think Jeremy is pretty cool about. Can I just say again that I feel so lucky to have someone who loves me so much?

Then, we have all the little things that migrate around the apartment as I use and move them. These are the things I use frequently. First, because it’s the most important, the very laptop I’m typing on now. It’s a Dell Mini 9, and it’s so tiny I can take it anywhere. I even use this thing in the bathtub (I’m talented that way). I haven’t had this thing very long, but I feel naked without it. It keeps me connected to the Twilight fandom (and my other real life family and friends too, ya know) CIMG2161 The stickers came from Hot Topic and so did the Twilight band-aids. Jessie bought the band-aids and let me have a few for decoration. I owe her a lot (Love you girl!)

Here is my laptop background image, which I think you’ll find as sexy as I do. CIMG2159 In case you can’t read the print at the bottom, it says, “Hey girl, are you thinking of me when you’re with him?” It’s one of the many examples of Rob Porn, which is featured at Letters to Rob and many other places on my blog roll. I don’t remember the exact place where I got this one from, but if you let me know I will credit you.  

These are my keys. They are very loud. I can’t sneak up on anyone with these. The menacing black thing on my key chain is the holder from my mace. Jump back, pervs. I’m armed. CIMG2155 As I was taking that picture, Kitty came over to investigate.

My books and movies are just waiting around to be read/watched again. I have two copies of the movie. One from the Hot Topic party, and the other from Target so I could have that extra disc of goodies. When Jeremy and I finally join the rest of civilization and get an HD TV, we will get another copy of Twilight in Blu Ray. CIMG2164 I’m working on building my book collection up again. It’s smart to have a set for personal use, and another for loaning to friends who haven’t been indoctrinated yet. CIMG2166 Finally, the last thing for this post is someone the regular readers have been introduced to before. In a horrible accident, I ended up with Jessie’s Mini Edward along with mine, and they’ve been making friends until I can get him back to her. CIMG2153

Yeah, they’re besties.

Y’all, this isn’t even all my Twilight shiz. I didn’t even take pictures of all my T shirts or bags or buttons. This post will be continued. Give me a chance to build up my arsenal. I will certainly be adding to my collection in the next few months, especially since I’ve been doing lots of browsing on Etsy and E Bay.

Let us know in the comments, what is your favorite piece of Twilight merch? Anything you’re lusting after hardcore? Are you waiting on something special to hit stores?

  1. I love this!!!! 😀 YOu are so welcome for all of the stuff! you have more coming your way because your birthday is like only a couple months away so be ready! love you! see you soon!

  2. I’m coming over! hehehe….let’s lock Jared in there! It will be his personal hell. Oooh maybe I should use this as punishment. Hope y’all don’t mind! =D

  3. @Jessie- Oh yeah! I forgot about my birthday! The big 2-1!

    @Tasha- That would be hilarious! Of course, I don’t mind at all 🙂 Anytime he needs to straighten up, just show him this post and use threats. That should work!

  4. YAY BIG 21!!!! WE ARE GOING TO PARTY IT UP BABY!!!!! 😀 I’m so sad, I’m 22 and past all of the fun birthdays. 😦

    • I think all the birthdays from now on are meant to be the fun ones, so don’t worry. We’ll make them fun 🙂

      • Yeah who says you can’t party from here on out too! I get to see your brother this weekend…. he is coming with my dad and Logan to come visit me sooooo I’m cleaning the apartment.. boo I’m proud of you for joining twitter! congrats! 😀 talk to you soon.

  5. I wish they would sell all that stuff here in my country 😦
    All I have are the books and the Target DVD (went through hell to get that too)
    loving your blog =)

    • Oh no, I would die without all my Twilight merch! Where are you from? Are there any online places you can order from?

      Thanks for reading us!

      • I’m from a little country in South America, it’s called Chile.
        Well I can get stuff from Amazon, but it’s a lot more expensive since they have to deliver it here n I use my dad’s credit card so I can’t ask for that much. At least I have the books n the 3 disc deluxe DVD right?

      • Yeah those are the essential must haves! I’m glad you have those! I didn’t even have the 3 disc one at first. Hopefully as the movies come out, they find a way to get more merchandise in other countries. That would be a smart thing to do.

      • I really hope so, cause I’m not gonna pay double the price for some stuff… then again maybe I wil lol. this addiction of mine has taken over, so if I did all that I did for the DVD then surely I would pay more just to get some t-shirts n some posters =)

      • It’s definitely worth it if you get the chance. Anytime I wear my Twilight t shirts, people come up to talk to me about the book and movie and it’s so fun because I love talking about Twilight, anytime and anywhere.

        Have you tried Ebay? There might be some things for sell in places where shipping isn’t so expensive. Good luck!

      • Thanks, I’ll look on Ebay =)

      • Great! Let us know how it goes!

  6. wow I love it! where do you get the edward doll? also which site would you recommend for t-shirts. sorry for so many questions.

    Reading your blog makes my day. Thank you!

    • Oh no, thank YOU for reading and commenting because that makes MY day! And you can ask as many questions as you like!

      I got my Edward doll at Hot Topic. I have seen him a number of other places, like Borders bookstore. He costs about 20 bucks and the resulting fun of taking him places and posing him for pictures is worth every penny.

      As for Tshirts, any place selling them I would be willing to buy from them. Wal Mart (before they took everything away) had some cheap ones, but at Hot Topic the prices aren’t too bad. The shirts are about 24 bucks there and some of them are going on clearance down to 15. Also, cafepress.com is a good site for Twilight shirts. I was just browsing their selection today and looking for birthday gifts for myself (my birthday is in July, but it’s never too early, right?). TwilightTeez.com is the store affiliated with the Lexicon and they have some good subtle tees.

      Sorry for the novel, but I hope this helped!
