Startstruck – The Twilight Saga ECLIPSE Convention – Day 2

cloudy.gifYet another day of cold California weather. Yikes. Ok. Compared to Norway not Cold but Arizona… I’m sure cold. We have +23C today in LA. It was completely cloudy.

I woke up at 5:45, showered and got ready to leave. Marco still asleep I had to wake him and Alex up. Marco had planned an early excersize session with another friend and Alex was to join them to look at them excersize.

We picked up Marcos friend and I was dropped off somewhere on Sunset Boulevard and then I walked with all my gear for the day. It took me an hour but it was 7am and it was noone else walking the streets this morning but me. A few cars drove past. I had no problems finding the hotel.. It was just to follow down the street and then when I got to the mall, walk 150 meters in up that street. :D

So that was the presentation of the Program, now lets get to business. I arrived at the Hyatt just a little over 8 am and went downstairs where I met Libbi in the Vendors Area and we were taking pictures with Bellas Car, Jacobs Bikes and the Volturi Chairs.

She also got herself a Bella Green Courderoy jacket like I got yesterday. Its sooo cute :

We also met up with Evelyn, Belinda and Sarah in the vendors area before we headed into the theatre to join the fun there. The exitement has risen since yesterday. Its already a huge improvement from yesterday. I mean the Cullen family panel was great and they are all so pretty. Elisabeth Reaser has the cutest laughter ever. She is just so adorable. Ashley Greene is so cute. I mean they are all pretty and they are all so nice. I am very pleased I got to come here and see them. Not only myself but the whole crowd of us today were all so exited. Not only for the Cullen Family Panel of course but for all the sessions today and the exitement grew and grew throughout the day. The Hilliwoods were doing an awesome job with the presentations and the shows they were putting on as well.

When the Wolf Pack Panel got on the crowd was boiling and people screaming, howling and enjoying themselves. It just got more and more evident throughout the day that today was a BIG day. Alex Meraz impressed widely when he was asked what his hidden talent was and he answered Capoeira. He was then asked to show us but didnt want to until we revealed that Daniel Cudmore had shown us some of his Ballet tricks when he was on stage .THEN Alex took the challenge and he totally blew our minds with his Capoeira show. It was magical! Truly awesome!

When the big three were to enter stage the crowd had already waited a longe time and they were frantic, screaming and howling waiting for them. They were over 45 minutes delayed to the the official press conference going on at the hotel for the upcoming The Twilight Saga: Eclipse Movie that will be released on the 24th of June.

When they finally entered the stage the screaming and howling was insane. I would be scared to death if I was one of them. I pasted links to the show and now you can see what you think as well !
