Many thanks to our wonderful blogger Arianna who was at Comic Con this weekend. She is still in travel mode but we wanted to get her pics and fan experience up for you guys to see. Arianna camped out to get into Hall H on Thursday for the Breaking Dawn panel. That morning, various Twilight Saga cast members came by to surprise the people in line, including Ashley Greene, Nikki Reed, BooBoo Stewart, Elizabeth Reaser and Julia Jones! Around that time, Arianna got chosen at random to attend an autograph signing later in the day with Taylor Lautner (!), Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and the film’s director Bill Condon. In addition, Arianna got to attend a session where Taylor Lautner signed Abduction posters!! Here’s her fan account of meeting the Twilight cast in the signing session.
About 50 fans were given the amazing opportunity to meet Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Kristen Stewart, and Bill Condon at Comic Con 2011 and I was one of them. We were told that no cameras or cell phones were allowed to be out in the room, or else we would have our badges taken away so we took no chances. About 5-10 fans were let in at a time and I was in the second group. I thought I would freak out but amazingly enough I stay calm and I think that’s all due to Taylor. When it was my turn I was up and he gave me his flashing smile and said “Hey, how’s it going!” So naturally if someone is not going to be nervous with me, i’m not going to be nervous with them. I said hi and told him I have had to wait many years to meet him and the time has finally come! So he wrote on my poster “Nice finally meeting you” and said it was great to meet me! He was sweet beyond words! So then Rob was next and my calmness was still there (oddly enough) so he said “hey” and gave me that half smirk and head nod I said the first thing that popped to mind “Hey, when are you finally going to buzz all that hair off” (or something to that effect) and he laughed and told me that he actually likes it’s it likes it and wants to keep his hair like that for a while, all while laughing it off. I (still giggling) thanked him and walked to Kristen were I completely shut down for some reason. She seems very shy but she was very sweet and smiled and thanked me for coming. Finally I got to meet the man behind the amazingness (I told him this too!) Bill Condon and I said that I have been enjoying talking to his partner Jack on Twitter. He got all excited and said “You know Jack! That’s great!” I cannot thank Summit and Comic Con enough for giving me this amazing opportunity!!
