This is 51-year-old Cathy Ward. Back in 2008, Cathy started reading the Twilight books, and became so engrossed by the story that she forgot to eat, and ended up losing six dress sizes. To honor her new favorite books and her new body, she decided to cover every inch of her skin with Twilight tattoos. She’s currently almost finished with her back and arms, which include detailed portraits of Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner. “I’m still continuing with them,” she says. “We’ve got plans and designs for my legs next year – the aim is to cover my whole body.” Reaching her goal will require hundreds of hours at the tattoo shop and an estimated $30,000 on top of the $11,000 she’s already spent, but Cathy insists it’s worth it. “I’m having a blast,” she says.

They’ve taken to Twitter to express their grief about Robsten –what Twihards call the union of Kristen and Rob — in the wake of news that Stewart cheated on Pattinson with “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders.
Twihards have so many feelings! And are maybe a little unhinged? After the jump, we’ve found Robsten devotees going through the grieving process online.
