went to the Salute to Twilight Convention on May 3rd. Ashley Greene (Alice Cullen) was supposed to be there, but she had to be flown to Vancouver last minute to film New moon. They found a replacement, Edi Gathegi (Laurent). Peter Facinelli (Carlisle Cullen), Kellan Lutz (Emmett Cullen), and Michael Welch (Mike Newton) were also there.
I also got pictures together with Peter and Kellan!! =) They are so adorable in person. “

Creation Entertainment’s
TWI/TOUR 2009 Convention
THREE BIG DAYS!

Updated: June 10, 2009


Once in many moons a new genre craze begins and so it is for TWILIGHT, the epic series of books and smash hit feature film (with sequels to follow). We are proud to present the Creation Entertainment Twi/Tour 2009 in the city of PHOENIX, ARIZONA, a true hotbed of Twilight fandom! With fantastic guest stars from the film, wonderful programming, panels and events, themed parties, autographs and photo ops, live musical performances and more: make your plans now to join the celebration! The entire convention takes place in a truly gorgeous location: The Wigwam Resort Hotel. Creation Entertainment has presented over 2,000 conventions for our fellow fans since 1971: come and experience a fantastic weekend you’ll never forget! For those that wish to party all night long (or just sleep!) the hotel offers special lower than normal room rates as described below.Twilight Special Guests

JACKSON RATHBONE

TWILIGHT’s Jasper Hale, Jackson’s appearance is tentative and pending professional availability as with all our guests.
Appearing Sunday

ASHLEY GREENE

Twilight’s Alice Cullen
Appearing Saturday & Sunday

KELLAN LUTZ

TWILIGHT’s Emmet Cullen, 90210’s George Evans. Appearing Saturday & Sunday

BILLY BURKETWILIGHT’s Charlie Swan
Appearing Friday
MICHAEL WELCH

TWILIGHT’s Mike Newton
Appearing Saturday

The vast majority of our guest celebrities take questions from the audience during their on-stage time. Therefore it is incumbent upon those that ask questions to make them ones that allow our mutual shared time with the celebrities to be enjoyable, interesting and entertaining for all (including the guest). Asking for hugs, telling stars we love them (we all do, that’s why we’re here), giving gifts (you can do this at photo ops), getting into long personal stories, or worse, is not acceptable for this format and, in fact, is quite self-centered when you are in essence “representing” all of fandom to a celebrity. Join us in trying to make this convention the best entertainment for everyone!

Convention Events

YOUR HOSTS FOR THE CONVENTION WEEKEND!

After their smashing success at our first convention (The Twi/Tour stop in San Francisco in early 2009) we are happy to welcome The Hillywood Show cast to this event!

We know you’ll enjoy meeting Hannah and Hilly Hindi and guests – With nearly 1,000,000 hits on their Twilight spoof video, these girls have been on the YouTube scene for three years doing hilarious spoofs of various movies. Dressed in character as Edward (Jacob Jost), Bella, Jasper (Drew Lorentz) and Alice, The Hillywood Show cast will be hosting the convention, doing skits, posing for photos and just making the weekend more fun and exciting!

FRIDAY NIGHT MUSICAL CONCERT (9PM) featuring:

MICHAEL WELCH will be appearing and doing a song or two!

GOODNIGHT JULIET

Goodnight Juliet is a quartet from Central California. They have been featured on websites all throughout the United States, along with Portugal, Brazil, Quebec, and Germany.  Their songs, including the Twilight-inspired “Let’s Never Die” are packed with heart, raw emotion, and seasoned professionalism.  Goodnight Juliet is quickly becoming a major up and coming force to be reckoned with in the music industry. For songs, lyrics, and to meet the band, please visit myspace.com/goodnightjulietband

CANDACE CHAREE’

Candace Charee’ may live in Arizona, however you’ll find her passion and inspiration for music residing in the Pacific Northwest, town of Forks Washington, home to the infamous “Twilight” superstars-Edward Cullen and Bella Swan.

Candace’s passionate sound has a unique Pop/Soul feel and she composes, writes, co-produces, and performs her own musical creations.  Candace has written three songs inspired by the applauded “Twilight Saga”, by Stephenie Meyer.

Candace Charee’ is also well known in the virtual “Twilight” world, with over ninety-thousand hits on “Youtube” videos that feature her music and over one-hundred-thousand hits on her “myspace” page—all within just a few short months.

Candace has been invited to perform her songs at numerous venues throughout Arizona and her captivating music can be purchased at Border’s Books, iTunes, Beatlocker.com, or by direct order from her myspace page: www.myspace.com/candacewilsonmusic

TWILIGHT MUSIC GIRLS

TWILIGHT MUSIC GIRLS began as a side project that got a little bigger than expected. Born from a love of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga, TMG consists of five up and coming Los Angeles-based singer/songwriters: Kris Angelis, Lauren Harding, Laura Serafine, Lyndzie Taylor, and Mallory Trunnell.

Originally friends from college, the girls shared a passion for music, often playing shows together at various clubs in town. The girls were all playing at the same venue one night and discovered they had each been musically inspired by the golden-eyed vampire and his sweetheart. All of their sets included a song about the star-crossed lovers. The ladies realized their passion for Meyer’s characters was great inspiration for some heartfelt songs, and they wanted to share their music with Twilight fans everywhere. A few weeks and lots of Vampire-gushing later, TMG was born.

The group is made up of five very different artists with styles ranging from pop to folk to rock, with sprinklings of punk and jazz who come together to harmonize and play on each others songs. Their lyrics are poignant yet subtle, connecting with fans of the books while still utilizing universal themes that any listener can identify with.

The response to the project has been nothing but incredible, and the ladies of TMG are having fun playing music and making new friends. The girls released their first collection of songs, The Twilight Music Girls: a Compilation, last September and have a new EP currently in the works! Each of the five songwriters continue to write, perform and promote their own original music as well. In fact, the girls will be doing a tour throughout the summer of both independent and collective shows, so stay tuned for dates and locations for that! You can find out more about TMG and all their endeavors at www.myspace.com/twilightmusicgirls and you can get their music on iTunes.

TICKETS

GENERAL ADMISSION: $20
This event is complimentary for GOLD WEEKEND PATRONS (keep your same great seats). Others must have a separate ticket to attend this concert.

SUNDAY BREAKFAST and CHARITY SILENT AUCTION

8:30 AM SUNDAY

A sinfully sensational event giving fans the super-rare opportunity to personally meet THREE OR MORE stars of TWILIGHT including KELLAN LUTZ, ASHLEY GREENE and JACKSON RATHBONE!  That’s right: guests will appear and be escorted around the room to meet each and every person in attendance! This is going to be awesome! And with fellow fans from around the world you’ll enjoy a delicious sumptuous Breakfast as well!

This event is strictly limited in attendance. Photos of the celebrities are permitted when they first enter and pose, then we ask that cameras be put away so stars can meet everyone in a casual way.

We’ll also have some cool items to bid on in a silent auction raising money for MAKE-A-WISH, an amazing charity Creation Entertainment audiences have helped over the years.  The breakfast is not part of any ticket packages and must be ordered separately.

$99

SATURDAY NIGHT VAMPIRE BALL

Fans from around the globe congregate in their finest vampire wear to raise the roof! Prizes for best costume and best dancers!

Here’s the perfect way to meet and mingle with fellow fans and also you’ll get to personally meet some of our Twilight guests who will be attending the party. A DJ is set, and this party is fine for all ages. Our celebrity guests so far include ASHLEY GREENE, MICHAEL WELCH and KELLAN LUTZ with others to be announced. This event is included on a complimentary basis for GOLD WEEKEND PATRONS. We have a FEW extra tickets that are available for those who are not Gold Patrons.

These tickets are $89 each.

VAMPIRE COURT MAKE-OVERS

Three lucky ladies will be selected on Saturday morning (the last three standing winners of our trivia contest which is open to our general audience) to be members of the Vampire Court to be presented at The Vampire Ball on Saturday Night. These court members will receive a luxury make-up and hair make-over by a professional team on Saturday afternoon. And a special treat awaits them at the ball!

Dress Code? We want everyone to be comfortable and we certainly don’t want to impose a dress code that would require someone to purchase apparel that they don’t currently own. If possible we do want attendees to come dressed in party attire, upscale casual, or in themed costume. With celebrity guest stars, music, a cash bar, and surprises we’re sure that this is going to be a party to remember!

VAMPIRE BALL CENTERPIECE CONTEST

Show your creativity by designing and bringing a Twilight themed Centerpiece to the Vampire Ball! A $250 gift certificate will be awarded to the very best centerpiece as decided by our judges.

SUNDAY: THE COSTUME COMPETITION

Come dressed in your finest costume as any Twilight themed character or make up your own! A $250 gift certificate is awarded to the very best! Let your creative juices flow and come ready to “thrill!”

TWILIGHT TRIVIA GAMES

Here’s where YOU get to show off your knowledge of all things Twilight: novels and film! There’s the YES/NO game where contestants are brought up from the audience to vie for hundreds of dollars in prizes, and we’ll also be doing our famous “Stump The Experts” game where audience members can try to stump the Twilight geniuses and win! So let’s get studying and ready to win…. please bring along trivia questions to ask too: all questions must be answered by something that appeared in the novels or in the film.

MEET ALPHIE AND PEL FROM “TWILIGHT LEXICON”

Lori Joffs (Alphie) and Laura Byrne-Cristiano (Pel) of the Twilight Lexicon will be appearing at several of Creation Entertainment’s TWI/TOUR conventions. The Twilight Lexicon (www.twilightlexicon.com), quoted by Stephenie Meyer as “the brightest star in the Twilight online universe,” is one of the original Twilight fansites, and the site creators will be on hand to meet the fans and talk about everything Twilight, including their set visits to both the Twilight and New Moon filming locations. Lori Joffs acted as a reader for Stephenie during the development of Eclipse and Laura Byrne-Cristiano has her finger on the pulse of the most current (and verified) news. They created the Twilight Lexicon in March of 2006 and have the most in-depth knowledge of the Twilight universe. Don’t miss the chance to talk to two of the original fans of the series.
