What to wear... What to wear...

If you're attending a Twilight Party why not dress is costume! Dress up as your favorite character whether it be Bella, Alice or Rosalie. What about being a Volturi member like Jane or a nomadic vampire like Victoria! There are so many options and possibilities!!

One of my friends dressed up as Jane. She put her hair up in a bun, wore a simple black dress with a cape and knee socks just like Jane did. She also covered her face and arms with light colored makeup to give her that pale vampire look. She also ordered red colored contacts online to achieve the Volturi eyes. It looked great!

If you don't feel like dressing in costume you could also wear your favorite Twilight shirt and show your love for your team. Doesn't matter if you're Team Edward, Jacob, Emmett or Jasper... all Cullen's and vampires are loved here! Shirts can be found just about any place Twilight merchandise is sold.

Another one of my friends dressed us as Breaking Dawn Bella! She wore her favorite Twilight shirt and "Cullen Eyes" that she got from the Twilight Convention. She was pregnant at the time of the party and she drank out of a styrofoam cup with a straw just like Bella did when she drank the blood in Breaking Dawn. Fun!

If you don't feel like dressing up or you can't decide which one is your FAVORITE shirt you can always wear Twilight colors such as black, white or red. To make it fun you can add a Edward or Jacob button to your shirt and tie a red satin ribbon in your hair to be like the Eclipse ribbon. Ribbon can be found at any craft store and buttons anywhere Twilight merchandise is sold.

I dressed up as Bella from New Moon! I found her authentic Birthday dress and jewelery set at Hot Topic and FYE . The dress retails for $100 but you can find it online. I've seen others sell the dress on eBay for about $70. The jewelery set I got on sale for $25 but you may be able to find it cheaper or for a little more. 

To be the best Bella that I could be I dyed my hair for the FIRST TIME to the darkest brown I could find in a washable dye. I got two bottle (for long hair) of semi-permanent hair dye at Sally's Beauty Supply. It only last about 5-8 showers and looked great. I also went to the eye doctor and had an eye exam so that I could get contacts. I do not wear glasses or contacts so this was dedication! You must have a eye doctor check you out before ordering contacts online and I knew that I wanted to get the Cullen and Volturi eyes eventually so it was worth it. After the exam I ordered a box of plano brown contacts to cover up my blue eyes so I'd look more like Bella.

I think it turned out great. What do you think?


  1. Girl, when you throw a party, you throw a party! I love the brown contacts and hair color! It's so cute! VERY natural though! Keep these great ideas coming! I LOVE your series!!! :0)

  2. I wish I lived closer to you... Ugh, we would have so much fun! Yes I agree with Jamie keep the idea's coming.. I love it and look forward to your next party even if I can only be there in spirit!!
