Something for Closeted Twilight Freaks Like Me

Everytime I go by Hot Topic at the mall, I'm dying to go inside and get myself an Edward T-shirt. Alas, I wouldn't be caught dead by my coworkers (or my 12 y.o. cousin) wearing one. What's a closeted addict like me to do (aside from starting a blog)?

Well, Etsy features tons of cool handmade Twilight-inspired crafts, where I found this high-quality Edward-Jacob-Bella bracelet by heidisjewelrydesign for sale. Cute!

  1. Love the wolf!
    I feel you on the shirt thing.
    I have a Team Jacob key chain that's allot easier to sport than my Team Jacob t-shirt.

  2. Here's the Edward version of my key chain! http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25988463

  3. I have a sparkly heart exactly like that one hanging on a red ribbon from my rear view mirror and it always makes me smile. I know about that invisible pull to go anywhere that has Twilight merchandise, but I just can't bring myself to go public with my Twi-addiction either. Luckily my teenage daughter is a huge Twi fan too, but even she rolls her eyes at me sometimes. If only she (or my husband) had any idea of the depths of my addiction...! (love your blog and tweets!!)

  4. I got a keychain from an Etsy vendor that says "Be Safe" in the font that's supposed to be Edward's handwriting. Makes me smile because none of the other moms at school realize it's a Twilight thing, they just thing my hubby is sweet. lol

  5. You made me laugh. I actually have 2 different Twilight shirts, but I only wear them at home and to sleep in. My husband isn't thrilled about sleeping with Edward staring at him, but that's too bad.
    I actually made myself a bracelet very similar to the one posted on Etsy. Of course, I haven't worn it yet. I will send you a pic Jen.

  6. Lucky me! I got this as a giveaway from my girls over at the Robsten Lovers. It's my lucky charm now - and it works, I swear!!! ;-)

  7. I have one almost identical to that from Etsy! But mine is on an antique brass chain. I bought mine from JeweledAmbrosia. I, too, feel that at a few years over 29 I have no business in a Twilight T-shirt but this bracelet lets me keep the boys close at all times and is inconspicuous to the untrained Twicrack Addict eye. DH didn't even notice it for a good 2 weeks!

  8. I can't wear bracelets, they get in my way when typing and writing but I have a Cullen crest keychain that's just great and for some reason I love the "heaviness" of it.

    My co-workers know about my Twilight obsession so I'm not too embarrassed to start bringing in my Twilight lunch box (Hot Topic! Choice of 2 designs) but I opted for the Cullen Family design, even though I wanted the Edward design, because even though I'm comfortable with them knowing that I love Twilight, they don't need to know how Robsessed I am. ^_-

  9. i got (that) wolf charm of ebay and a crystal heart at craft/bead store and added them to a lightly decorated charm bracelet I already had, so I always have that little bit of twilight with me, just for me

  10. I actually think it's very pretty. I'd rip the wolf off the second it hit my wrist but I think it's pretty all the same.

  11. Let me tell you something TCA: last week at was at Hot Topic and there was a woman (she was like 45 -50 years old) and she was talking out loud about Edward Cullen!!! She was like oohh look I want this t-shirt and her daughter told her to get the one were appears Bella and she said no i don't want her I want Him! Then she said that she was going to buy the New Moon t-shirt and she wasn't going to work the day of the premier here in Puerto Rico!! She was like crazy looking at all the stuff they had! I understand that my level of obsession is not that high hahaha maybe I'm a little ashamed to show my emotions in public and that's why I feel like home here!!!

  12. Love the bracelet! I make and sell many twilight goodies and 'Bella's bracelet' was the first thing I made lol Mine has a russet coloured wolf though, had to be true to Jacobs colours since I am seriously on the fence...team ed, team jacob...more like team threesome!

  13. Oh myyy , thats cute
    But a true Twilight fan isnt afraid to wear an Edward shirt , no matter how old they are and who they're seen by

  14. hehe. i love you ladies!

    i think i can be a true Twilight fan, and still stuck in the closet. hehe. my real world friends just don't get my obsession and i don't need them to think i'm more nutty than they already do!

    as for not being willing to wear an Edward shirt...we'll, Mr. TCA already is suspicious of my incessant blogging habit; all this time, he's had no clue how much i actually blog. :-) i think wearing edward to bed would blow my cover.

  15. hmm, im a hairdresser and not so much a closet fan, but as many of the bloggers here say, im not about to flaunt how deeply obsessed i am. having said this, its probably a reason i wouldnt wear the bracelet because once people figure out what it is, you're secret's blown. ur oficially obsessed. i think stick to the obvious, bigger stuff like buying th cd and t shirts cos its kinda silly and funny, and nobody thinks u take it seriously. its when u try to be sly that people look at u funny,

  16. LOL -- anonymous hairdresser, i think you're right! maybe getting the 'secret' bracelet is a worse / deeper signal of severe obsession. hehe

  17. I disagree with Anonymous (4 up) we can be twicrack-heads and not want to wear those horribly ugly shirts! I was at the zoo with the fam and saw a 20something lady walking around w/ an Edward head plastered on her chest and I felt embarassed for her. I finally broke down and bought a black one with Twilight in that famous font. Of course it was cut to fit a size one pre-teen so I look like a stuffed sausage in it. might wear it out when I can throught a jean jacket over it :)

    Still looking for the perfect Twi jewelry. the wolf and heart does not do it for me. Neither does Robwards head on a chain. TCA please post more jewelry as you find them!!

  18. To all the closeted: there's a saying from my neck of the woods (freely translated by me): Once your reputation's out the window, you can sin in peace.

  21. I have been a closeted Twilight addicts for a few years now. This summer I finally felt the sweet releasing by announcing my hidden pleasure. I now sport a "twilight mom" bumper sticker and I got some really cute twilight mom tees. What's a girl to do, by how could I go on being so ashamed of something I love so much :)
