Batty Boys?

I love this t-shirt from my favourite American site Snorg Tees. It’s a wonderful t-shirt depicting in cartoon style the sequence of events that have led up to the creation of the wonderful Twilight series from bat via Bela Lugosi through to the fictional Edward Cullen. It shows the always lovely James Dean-y looking Robert Pattinson doing for vampires what Daryl Hannah did for mermaids many years before when she became hot mermaid-taily totty. In a similar situation where they aren’t really people, and making them into objects of desire is possibly a wee bit creepy, Robert Pattinson’s alter ego Edward Cullen has single toothedly turned neck biting  from being a cruel blood sport into a minor inconvenience on the way to full vampire transformation. Yummy!

This has to be one of my favourite of all the Twilight t-shirts and a great reminder of what bit before!

Sad Girl!

Sad Girl!

Scanning the papers today, I came across The Observer’s list of the key trends in men’s t-shirts right now. So, major smug moment as I clocked a black and white moody and atmospheric photo t-shirt, a hand drawn flag-style t-shirt, a Beatrice Boyle melted lady t-shirt, a skull t-shirt, slogan t-shirt, a Twilight t-shirt and a collage t-shirt.

Er....Pyjamas?

Er....Pyjamas?

After dancing around for a while, feeling like I am the biggest trend setter since Kate Moss single-handedly invented skinny jeans, I reluctantly came to the conclusion that this was pretty much every men’s t-shirts covered. Except, maybe the potato print one. Er….why?

When the Twilight machine rolled into London this week for the grand première of the latest film Eclipse, just three little things were missing. Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner all had other pressing commitments and were unable to attend the most awaited for event since  forever, well at least the last Twilight film. To say that it was a washout would either be a monumental understatement or a huge mistake, as the Twihards that turned up to support the stars were still out in force. And you don’t want to mess with them.

I thought the t-shirts bearing the message “Robbed” were immensely funny. Short, snappy, a good pun and to the point, just as a t-shirt should be. Some of them had pictures of R Pattz himself with the statement, others just had the word itself, although there were some nice creative “bite me” t-shirts in the mix too.

I think it’s time to set the boss off on making me a nice “Gutted ” t-shirt, which would have the dual function of conveying remorse and  er…. gutting, or whatever it is vampires do to one when they fancy a pint.

What’s that? Oh, the boss is still camping out in London hoping that Pattinson will make a belated appearance. Better not mention it then. Oops!

R Splat!

R Splat!

Like a grown up, sultry version of Harry Potter is how the Twilight Saga looks from afar. More cool and teenagery, with lots of beautiful people, and much more of an interesting moral dilemma what with the whole blood sucking thing. If Jack Wills did vampires, this might well be what they would look like, all louche and stylised, and jolly tasty in their own little way. Both the novels and films have gone stratospheric, and rather unsurprisingly, so have the actors.

Top hottie vampire, Edward, played by Robert Pattinson has just scooped every prize going at the National Movie Awards (why is it called Movie Awards when it was held in London, by the way? Don’t we have films here in the UK?) I just noticed that everywhere you turn, Robert Pattinson is skulking on a magazine cover, looking broody and moody (or is that brooding? I think broody is for hens). I keep imagining, though that Nicola Roberts, aka the pale one from Girls Aloud must be waiting in the wings to slap her pale-face make up onto him, because he has defied her, and is no longer her perfect colour match. Arrrrgh! Look out RPats, here she comes!
