So here we are! Eagerly awaiting the release of Eclipse and other movies that have our favourite stars in. Seems as though 2010 is an excellent year for all things Twilight!
Late last year South Africans were given the opportunity to enter a competition to attend an Exclusive New Moon party held by the movie distributor (Ster-Kinekor) and MiMoney. It was a really exciting time for us die-hard Twi-hards. In order for our entry to count we had to see New Moon as many times as possible in oder to gain entry. I tell you i hoped and prayed and begged that I would make the cut and be invited alas my fortune was not with me - i cried shamelessly!
Surprisingly though my best friend won 2 tickets to the event :) No more tears of sadness. it was an unbelivable! All you could hear on the phone was hysterical crying [on both ends]. Goodness!
So December and January slowly crawled by and finally February arrived and so the night of the party! We were given a secret location and password codes and away we went.
The event was held at Club Taboo in Sandton and it was amazing - true Cullen style with expensive but subtle furniture, mirrors and glass, wide open spaces etc. It was classy.
Upon arrival you were given a free drink and free tattoos [Team Edward - Vampie Bites and Team Jacob - Quileutes Tribal Mark]. The venue was packed with fellow Twi-hards so needless to say life-long friends were made.
There were photo booths scattered everywhere where you were allowed to take photos with friends as many times as you wanted and for free. Free food and free drinks.We were also given free tofee apples and at one point really awesome glitter so that when the lights went out on the dance floor and sunlights & torches were switched on we glittered like our favourite Vamps :D They even had a professional photographer - he was there so that you could take a photo with one of the look-a-likes :)
There were look-a-likes for Edward, Jacob, Bella, Victoria, Laurant, Alice, James and Jane. They were fantastic. Of course nothing beats the originals but they did a pretty kick ass job :) They posed for photos - both professional and personal. I'm pretty sure a few Twi-hards asked for their autographs ha ha! At the end of the night we each recieved original New Moon movie posters - 6 in all.
Thanks to Ster-Kinekor and MiMoney for the amazing opportunity! It was a night to remember :)
Photos to follow :D
Wow what a way to start the year off!
