The Twilight Saga: Eclipse – Convention, Los Angeles, day 1

cloudy.gifOuch. The temperature drop from Arizona to Californias… Not recommendable. It felt sooo cold ! Only +20C (68F) is a huge difference from 104 in Arizona. Oh well. Im going to be inside anyways :D

I woke up early because of all the exitement for the weekend. I actually didnt even sleep well, but that was all due to all the upcoming exitement planned for the weekend :D

Amanda took me to the airport in good time for my flight and I checked in in more than good enough time. I spent some time checking out airport terminal 4 at the Phoenix Sky Harbour international airport. They have so many nice souvenirs that I will totally have to get some when I get back here in two weeks.

I spent the time before the flight took off to finish reading my book Spririt Bound. The boarding and the flight went really well and we landed in Los Angeles, California a little over 2 pm. So, how to get to the event in time?SuperShuttle :D

Supershuttle is a shared airport cab service, they pick you up and drive you door to door from airport to where you are going or from your place of choice to the airport for a minimum of cost.

The cost from LAX to The hotel where the convention is held was only 27 usd.

The Hyatt Los Angeles Century Plaza Hotel. A gorgeous hotel visited frequently by film stars and presidents.

It sure is pricey enough and I had no intentions of checking in so I stored my luggage with the bell boy and headed down to the registration area for the convention.

Woohoo. Finally the fun could start :D

8:00 PM – 10:15 PM Volturi Vampire Ball

I met Libbi, Belinda, Evelyn and Sarah at the ball and we had lots of fun.

During the Vampire Ball we are all supposed to go dressed up as Vampires – the so called Volturi or any other favorite character from the Twilight series. At each table the participants would set up their home made centerpiece art pieces for the centerpiece contest.

There was also a dance contest, a best costume contest and guest appearances by Kiowa Gordon, Justin Chon, Michael Welch and Tinsel Korey of the actual Twilight saga cast and the whole show was led by the Hillywood show cast.

At 10:30 the Gala Vampire ball ended and the Musical Karaoke Concert led by Michael Welch and Kiowa Gordon starting off the karaoke concert then letting the general public sing.

At 11:30 pm Marco and Alex came to pick me up and we went to Marcos place. Alex is a Brazilian couchsurfer staying with Marco.

I was early in bed after a shower.
