Has anyone out there ever attended a Twi Tour Convention??
My birthday just passed and my mom (she's a Twilight fan, but not a 'twi-mom') and I were thinking about attending the twi-tour stop in Boston in July. I've never been to any sort of fan convention like this before and while it sounds fun, it is quite pricey. The tickets we were planning on getting cover the entire weekend and include an autograph from 7 of the Twilight stars. Photo ops and the night-time entertainment cost extra money. The tickets are $169 each and then we'd be stuck paying for the hotel as well.
I'm definitely a Twilight fan and I've gone to the Hot Topic mall tours the last two years. While I find those fun and everything, I kind of feel like a convention is for more die-hard fans. I wouldn't join in on the costume contests or any of the extras; just the signings and panel discussions with the cast.
The Twilight attendees include: Kellan Lutz (who I've met twice already)aka Emmett, Alex Meraz aka Paul , Chaske Spencer aka Sam, Bronson Pelletier aka Jared, Kiowa Gordon aka Embry, Julia Jones aka Leah, BooBoo Stewart aka Seth, Charlie Bewley aka Demetri, and Daniel Cudmore aka Felix.
So, for those who have gone in the past (and those who haven't), do you think it's worth it? Is it for more die-hard, crazy-obsessed fans or will I fit right in?
I'm not sure if I even want to go because of the price, but if others say it's worth it, I just might. If I don't go, I was thinking about getting an ereader, but I'm not really sure if I want that either.
I'm so indecisive. Help! Please
