Cuddle Fight! Life-Size Edward And Jacob Body Pillows Want To Watch You Sleep

So this is creepy. Etsy seller Manllow has concocted the ultimate lonely “Twilight” fan’s companion — life-size body pillows that are “half man half pillow.” Edward and Jacob’s faces have been screen-printed over soft, snuggly pillow bodies for your cuddling pleasure! Unfortunately, the pillows are anatomically incorrect in their downstairs parts, like horrible Muppets. But Edward could watch you sleep, or Jacob could keep you warm and safe all night long, and the eternal war between vampires and werewolves could finally end.

At least Manllow has a healthy sense of humor, as she demonstrated when the internet exploded in response to these horrible Frankenpillow creations. She calls them: “The greatest gift of all time. 105% creepy and 5% lovable.” Yipes. Keep reading »

Kellan Lutz Wants To Show You His Underpants

I don’t know. Maybe there’s something in the air? It’s a guys-rolling-around-in-their-underpants videos kind of a week, I think. Yesterday, it was my boyfriend Ruslan. Today, it’s “Twilight” star Kellan Lutz. Frankly, I don’t know about his acting chops, but his ability to look good in his undies is Academy Award-winning. Suffice to say, Kellan is the 21st century’s Mark Wahlberg, but without the Boston accent. According to the man in the manties, Calvin Klein’s X underwear is “straight-up comfortable” and “holds you together.” And what, pray tell, does he mean by that? Since I don’t wear briefs, I could not tell you. It keeps your zucchini with your kiwis? It makes your butt cheeks tight? Who knows! I’ll believe whatever this buthisface tells me.

Graphic Novels Gone Girly

Graphic novels have always suffered a geek taint, a stubborn case of social acne that alienates certain sects of people. There have always been a handful of Comic-Con cuties, but, overall, society has labeled graphic novels a man’s medium. Yen Press has a solution to bring some girl power to the graphic novel. The publisher is taking female-favored heavyweights and adapting them to fit this medium. This year, Yen Press will be introducing the first installments of both The Twilight Saga and Gossip Girl series. Twilight promises to be loyal to the original novels—Yen is even working with author Stephenie Meyer to capture the right money-making, heart-melting formula. Gossip Girl, on the other hand, is a re-imagining of the story with all the classic characters. I don’t think Twihards will have any problem taking to the new medium—heck, they’ll buy anything Forks-inspired. Gossip Girl may be harder to sell. What do you think—will manga-ized Serena and Bella bring a new surge of women to the graphic novel? [EW, MTV]

Forks, Washington: The Real Twilight Saga

In 2004, after “The O.C.” drew in a zillion viewers with its Seth Cohens and Marissa Coopers, MTV decided to launch a little reality show called “Laguna Beach” to show folks what it’s really like to be a teenager in Orange County. So it’s only natural that, after a million zillion Twihards tripped over themselves to see “New Moon” on opening night, that someone would think to film a reality show about what it’s really like to live in Forks, Washington. Today, producer Zig Gauthier is in Forks, holding casting sessions for just such a show. The show could follow students inside Forks High School, though (presumably) there won’t be any vampires or werewolves among the brood. Or it could focus on older Forks residents, as a rainy version of the “Real Housewives” franchise. I’m definitely voting for the former. There’s gotta be at least one girl in that high school who has assumed the name Bella, and every freaking school has an Edward. Hopefully, they’re dating. [MTV] Keep reading »

Introducing “Twilight” Manties Model Kellan Lutz

What does Marky Mark of The Funky Bunch have in common with Emmett from “Twilight“? Manties! Kellan Lutz will be slipping on the boxer-briefs Mark Wahlberg made famous for Calvin Klein in the ’90s. From what we’ve seen, Lutz is quite photogenic and his abs are poppin’, but can he fill the shoes underwear of the beefed-up rapper-turned-model-turned-actor? You be the judge when the campaign comes to a billboard near you soon. [NYMag] Keep reading »

How To Look Like A “Twilight” Star

OK, so I know I’m really late to the party (actually, I once insisted I wouldn’t even show up), but yesterday I found myself at the movie theater, gobbling popcorn, absolutely transfixed by a movie made for teenagers. Taylor Lautner’s insane abs and hokey Harlequin-esque romance moments aside, I couldn’t help but notice how great of a job “New Moon” makeup designer Norma Hill-Patton did, making Bella look fresh as a daisy and natural-looking and, alternatively, the vampires appear as gorgeous and other-worldly as possible. Apparently, creating the illusion of perfect skin is the vital starting point. “Vampires don’t perspire, don’t grow facial hair, don’t get lines and certainly don’t get blemishes, so all the actors required a lot of makeup on their faces for long periods of time,” Hill-Patton explained, via a press release for Dermalogica, the brand of skincare used on set. In the old days, pancake makeup would’ve done the trick. But this is the era of hi-def, people. Here’s how to steal some on-set looks for real life. Keep reading »
