Bella's birthday party replicas, as seen in the upcoming NEW MOON parody by THE HILLYWOOD SHOW. Bella's custom green taffeta dress with black rose flocking (Not the NECA replica), Alice's deep purple dress, Rosalie's dramatic black gown and Esme's frilly pink/lavender party frock. On the table is a sign announcing the upcoming NEW MOON parody, along with a few other pieces like Rosalie's VINCE CAMUTO pumps (which are usually displayed with her NANETTE LEPORE blazer she wears in the cafeteria scene and in promo shots, but didn't come to Orlando), Bella's green "kangaroo" hoodie from the treetop scene and Rose's slouch hat from the aforementioned cafeteria scene.
See above for a few descriptions on these costumes! Below James' costume is Victoria's "KISS ME I'M IRISH" shirt.
Edward, Charlie, Carlisle.

I have a very big announcement to make! It's official...I've been invited to take The Twilight Costume Collection on a 3-city tour in Australia for the month of October! I'll be appearing alongside Kellan Lutz, Charley Bewley, Tinsel Korey, Chaske Spencer and Michael Welch to talk about curating the largest private collection of "Twilight Saga" Costumes and Props, as well as what it's like being the Costume Designer for the NEW MOON Parody by THE HILLYWOOD SHOW! What an honor! The Hub Productions Twilight Tour will kick off on October 10th in Brisbane. We'll be in Sydney on October 11th and then at Armageddon Expo October 17th - 18th in Melbourne.
Once in a blue moon I meet a kindred spirit...and it's rare indeed. These are the people that impress and inspire me. Most importantly, they are people that I learn from. Andrea and I first met online when I contracted her to reproduce some WICKED stage props for a display I was doing 2 years ago. She amazes me with her creativity and keen sense of accuracy when reproducing any number of things from Glinda's tiara, necklace and wand to Bella Swan's turquoise cuff bracelet from The TWILIGHT Saga films. When I asked her if she could make the bracelet for me, she didn't hesitate. Working with a new medium and sterling silver, this bracelet is 100% accurate to the screen-worn version...and I am the happiest boy on earth for being able to display Andrea's beautiful, beautiful work!! If you would like to check out Andrea's sites or wish to place an order with her, visit her on Etsy here:

That's right, Twilighters! I am thrilled to officially announce that I am costuming the amazing Hillywood crew for their upcoming NEW MOON parody!
If you've been to any recent TWILIGHT convention, you've seen them wearing some of THE TWILIGHT COSTUME COLLECTION pieces, but now we're joining forces and going gangbusters to bring you the best NEW MOON parody possible! Just between you and me...this film is going to be AMAZING! (And I'm not saying that just because they've written a role just for me)! I can't say much about it, but they have some amazing and witty tricks up their (beautifully costumed) sleeves!! Stay tuned to their website for further updates!
