Adventures in Twilightland
First, we want you all to know that we realize there is more to life than Twilight. We don't spend every waking moment talking and thinking about Twilight, but it is near and dear to our hearts.
Within this blog you will find our Twilight musings, declarations of adoration, and all sorts of other silly Twilight-related nonsense. And to all you other Twilight fans, we'd love to hear from you.

Oh, the horror!

Ok, maybe I shouldn't be the one posting this as I am rather anti-Barbie and just the sight of these dolls causes my stomach to curdle, but this particular version of Barbie is so ridiculous (says one of the girls who is obsessed with make-believe vampires) that I must share this information with you.

The Edward and Bella Barbie dolls are available for pre-order on the Canadian Toys R Us website. Delivery of these nausea-inducing figures begins in October of this year. Here is the description from the website:

And so the lion fell in love with the lamb.Twilight has quickly become a worldwide phenomenon developing a strong core base of dedicated fans who are drawn to the story of a Romeo & Juliet style romance between mortal (Bella) and vampire (Edward). Who better to capture the young star-crossed love of these two characters than Barbie & Ken. Edward is luminescent with a shimmering complexion and trademark gold eyes. Bella doll sold separately.

Notice the line in red. Can we say inflated ego? So dear readers, I have a challenge for you. What other kinds of dolls would be a better representation of Bella and Edward?

Listen to This!

Little T and Big T are loving this song! Created by the band Oh, Hush!, this song exemplifies the Bella/Jacob dynamic. These guys have an album for sale on iTunes that doesn't include this song (boo), but it contains other great ditties. Word of warning: this song is VERY addicting!


Yes, we got the Twitter all set up, however, we don't know how often we will use it now that Peter Facinelli has won the bet!!! You can follow us

Etsy Store

Um, not done yet. Big T has been doing a lot of homework (she should be doing it right now but is taking a quick break) and Little T has been busy, too. We will shoot for having it open this weekend.

Watch This!

This killer video was created by Rebellious Pixels. As I am an avid Buffy and Twilight fan, I couldn't resist posting this. You have to admit that it is kind of funny, even if we don't all agree with the ending :)

Twilight Tidbits


If you have a Twitter account, go sign up to follow Peter Facinelli (Carlisle)! If he reaches 500,000 followers by June 19, his friend has to walk around LA wearing an itsy bitsy yellow polka dot bikini. Did I mention this is a male friend? If poor Peter can't make his goal, he has to sacrifice his Twilight actor's chair to his pal who may do unspeakable things to it.

Twilight Board Game

Big T and Little T played the Twilight board game last night and the consensus was... blech! Totally not fun. The game is based only on the movie and Big T kept answering the trivia with info from the book. Could be good for a giggle, but only because of the cheese factor. Big T and Little T are already brainstorming ways to make a wicked cool New Moon board game - based on the book!


Be on the lookout for Adventures in Twilightland merchandise at We are opening a store to help pay for a pilgrimage to the motherland - Forks, Washington. Every purchase will help. We hope to have it up and running by next weekend at

Belated Birthday Wishes

Adventures in Twilightland's Little T recently celebrated her birthday. She was gallivanting across the South with Edward in tow, so look ahead to seeing some pics of their travels soon.

Next Spotlight
Please let us know what vampire you'd like us to spotlight next. Remember, we've already done Alice and Jasper. We wouldn't be opposed to non-vamp suggestions, either :)

Best of Both Worlds

If you have ever met Big T, then you probably know about Etsy. No, it is not a disease - it is the BEST WEBSITE EVER! allows people to buy and sell handmade and vintage items. Big T loves the site so much that if Etsy were a man, she would be married to it and have dozens of crafty little babies.

While on one of her almost daily trolls of Etsy, Big T decided to do a Twilight search and came up with these interesting picks. A crafting site that sells Twilighty goodness - what could be more perfect?

Yes, the picture sucks - deal with it. Go order this coffee cozy right now from! There are more Twilight styles to choose from, but remember to give Jasper some love. For those of you that can't decipher the words: Do that again and I will so give you a paper cut right in front of Jasper.

Pair these hand-painted shoes from with the shirt listed below and you will be the Bella of the ball at this summer's Twi-Con! Other quotes and shoe colors are available.

So even Blythe doll collector's are Twilight fans! This four pack of shirts is available at Bet you could squeeze one of these bad boys on a small dog or cat, maybe even a neighborhood squirrel... yeah, a whole Edward Cullen army of squirrels! Sorry, drifted off there.
OME! You can get a personalized New Moon poster with your face in place of Bella's at You send in a pic and get a file back so it appears as if you are in the movie. Perhaps some fellas might even want to get in on this and become Edward or Jacob (have you seen Jacob's arms lately? Hot!).

This hooded shirt is available at She takes clothes and reconstructs them to make them even more awesome than they were originally. With the hood and long sleeves, it'd be a great shirt to wear on November 20.

Custom Edward Cullen stamp available at Put Edward's face all over your books, clothes, walls - the sky's the limit! I wonder how hard it was to sculpt a bouffant into a stamp...
