It’s finally here: one of the Twilight-themed moments you’ve been waiting for all year – the big reveal of Bella Swan’s wedding dress. The rendering was released earlier this week, and I’ll be damned if that chick in the dress doesn’t look EXACTLY what you’d expect an anime Kristen Stewart to look like, but I guess that was part of the whole idea, huh?
I don’t really get the hardons over Twilight, though there are probably people out there who don’t really get the whole Star Wars thing, either, but this wedding dress of Bella’s? It’s probably the excitement-equivalent of Princess Leia’s crazy risque bikini that people are STILL all nuts over.
Gotta love those fans and their fanatical ways, right? Speak out, Twilight fans – are you loving this?
Robert Pattinson has been a part of the Twilight franchise for like, almost four years now and he admits that he still can’t put in the contact lenses he wears to play Edward Cullen. Robert recently said in an interview that he still needs the makeup artists to put in his contacts for him. He told Entertainment Weekly, “Everyone else has figured out how to do it, and then there’s two people holding me down because I can’t do it myself… It’s so embarrassing for me, after so many years, it’s still a process every single morning. I actually want to get some kind of plastic explosive… I want to kill them.”
I gotta admit that I’ve always had a similar problem with contacts (I’m practically blind, did you guys know that?) but like, suck it up dude.
Bath & Body Works was being threatened with legal action by Summit Entertainment, the people behind the Twilight movies to discontinue their scent, “Twilight Woods.” The production company claims that the retailer is trying to capitalize on their brand through unofficial merchandise. While a lesser overpriced lotion and fragrance manufacturer would buckle under the pressure, Bath & Body Works is all “Hell to the no!”
Confusion in the marketplace? Summit allegedly thinks so. Now Bath & Body Works has beat Summit to the courthouse to stake its claim in federal court in Manhattan.
“The term ‘Twilight’ is used so as to evoke the idea of a particular time of day when the sun is just below the horizon, illuminating the landscape,” the lawsuit says. “Whereas defendant uses the term ‘Twilight’ to refer to defendant’s teen vampire saga.”
I’m going to have to side with Bath & Body Works on this one, although I hope I’m never forced to smell their shitty products again. Summit doesn’t get to own words commonly used to describe a type of day, and B&BW has always used really fucking dumb names for their products. My college boyfriend’s mom was obsessed with “Moonlit Path,” which to me sounds exactly like “Twilight Woods,” except later in the day.
Calm down, Summit. You’ll get all the money you deserve and then some. Leave the tacky mall store and its gross lotions alone.
