Comic-Con 2012: Stephenie Meyer and the Parade of Vampires

I’ll bet you never realized that my erratic posting schedule and haphazard chronological style is all part of a master plan to keep things at TwiBite unpredictably fresh and… oh who am I kidding? I am a procrastinator of the worst sort and incapable of posting my musings in order, but thank you so much for still sticking around!

No surprise, but Breaking Dawn Part 2 has been on my mind quite a lot lately. Not only am I obsessing about Tent City camping next month, but I’ve also realized that time is running out to re-read the 2nd half of the book before the movie opens. And is it just me or are there an awful lot of new vampires?!

My severe lack of Breaking Dawn knowledge became especially apparent at Comic-Con a few months ago when Stephenie Meyer and 28 mostly new cast members visited us in line and I couldn’t identify most of the actors or the characters they portrayed. So, as a sort of public service, here are some pictures from a very awesome night in line at Comic-con with the actor & character names included to help you study. And don’t even think about asking me what coven they’re in.
I apologize ahead of time that nearly every photo includes Twi-daughter Nicole or me. My apologies also to ZAnyMouse and 17ForeverLisa because they were right next to us during the entire frenzy and I have not a single picture of them to share with you. Everything happened so quickly it was just so exciting to be surrounded by so much Twilightiness. There are a few actors that missed our section of the line, but I think we saw just about everyone.
Stephenie Meyer - It was so exciting to see her again! She's had such a major impact on my life.

Joe Anderson (Alistair) - I think Nicole was most thrilled to meet him out of everyone there because she's a huge fan of his work.
Peter Facinelli (Carlisle) - This is my favorite picture of the night and it was so wonderful to see Peter with a smile on his face again.
Kellan Lutz (Emmett) - One of the best huggers ever
(LOL, ZAnyMouse photo bomb alert!)
Angela Sarafyan (Tia)
Bill Tangradi (Randall)
Rami Malek (Benjamin)
Guri Weinberg (Stefan)
Mia Maestro (Carmen)
Maggie Grace (Irina)
Lisa Howard (Siobhan)
Judith Shekoni (Zafrina)
Tracey Heggins (Sienna) - I have to say, Judith and Tracey are VERY tall!
Ashley Greene (Alice)
Mackenzie Foy (Renesmee)
Elizabeth Reaser (Esme)
Nikki Reed (Rosalie)
Jackson Rathbone (Jasper) - We had such a great conversation about his upcoming musical plans and his new baby. He's a very proud new Dad. Gah, I just love that guy and miss 100 Monkeys!
Valorie Curry (Charlotte)
JD Pardo (Nahuel)
Amadou Ly (Henri)
Janelle Froehlich (Yvette)
Marisa Quinn (Huilen)
How awesome is this poster? There are about 25 autographs and I can’t identify most of them.
And here’s a little something to send you on your way with a smile on your face.
