My current collection/Twilight convention

I'm heading to Toronto for Creation Entertainments official Twilight convention in 3 days. I'm way too excited. You remember being a kid and Christmas time came? Time never seemed to go by. I feel like this past month has dragged on by so slow. I've never been to a convention (largely due to the fact that I live under a rock and had never heard of them until very recently), but I have heard only good things. Gah! TOO EXCITED!

It's been a really horrifying past year for me. One of my absolute closest friends moved away, my dad passed away, and I had to find a new home for my dog who was not getting along with my roommates cat. This isn't a "please feel bad for me plea", it just to understand where I am coming from. It's not been a fun year at all. When I found out about this convention, I had nowhere near enough money for the tickets, muchless travel expenses. Thankfully, I have the best friend/roommate imaginable.. and he made it all possible. Yep, gold packages, brunch tickets, photo ops.. the whole nine. To keep a smile on my face for what feels like the first time in forever, he's even dressing up as Edward for me. It doesn't take away the pains of everything, but I'd be lying if I said it wasn't a really, really good distraction.

I've put together a costume of Alice for myself. It's not the best, and I bet there will be a hundred other "Alice's" that will far succeed me in the costume competition, but it's still good fun.

I'm also really looking forward to adding to my collection. I've seen some amazing memorbilia items out there, and I'm a sucker for the merch! I don't have a TON yet, but I'm hoping to remedy that. Because I'm bored right now, and trying to make time go by... here is a list of what I currently have (should I post pics?):

Most of the other stuff is just many magazines and little odds and ends (movie theatre cups and such). I'm probably forgetting something, but ohwell.

I'm curious to see other collections. I've seen a few. There are some CRAZY videos on youtube of collections that I only wish I could afford. I've seen some pretty impressive ones, needless to say. Would love to see yours.
