You CAN get Bella’s New Moon birthday dress!
“Sorry, Twilighters, but you’re outta luck. New Moon costume designer Tish Monaghan custom-made Bella’s one-of-a-kind dress: ”It was supposed to be a gift from Alice, so I wanted something pretty that Alice would buy, but also something vintage [looking] that would be appropriate for Bella. We dressed it down with sneakers to keep the Bella flavor.”
After reading that painful snippet in the Entertainment Weekly Magazine, i had given up hope in trying to find what everyone refers to as Bella’s “birthday dress”. I had searched all over the internet, and had found costumes that people had made to mock the dress, but i still was not satisfied. I wanted as close to the real thing as i can get, and cosplay was not cutting it!
Just when i thought “maybe you really cant get this dress”, i received a phone call from a very reliable source, giving me some very interesting information.
At the 2009 Comic-Con, held in San Diego, Hot Topic had announced that they were releasing within their Twilight line, yes, you guessed it, Bella’s birthday dress! Now, it obviously isn’t a Tish Monaghan official dress, but if it were, I can assure you it would be hundreds of dollars that we should be using to go see the New Moon movie over and over again. The dress that Hot Topic will be releasing has the same pattern and same dress design, along with the color.
Hot Topic had also announced that they would be releasing the corduroy jacket Bella also wears in some of the New Moon scenes
The date has not been set as to when Hot Topic will be selling these items in their stores, but we can only assume it will be closer to when the movie is released. When i find out, I’ll post it right away!
This is your Twilight fashon update for today! and when you pick yourself up a Bella’s birthday dress, dont forget to pick yourself up a pair of these as well!
