Get up close and personal with Twilight Costumes!
John Henson is a graphic designer, published children's book author/illustrator and costumer from Columbia, SC. In his spare time, he's a costume designer with the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS "Broadway Bears" annual auction. Through this amazing charity, John has worked with costumes from Broadway's RENT since 1999, and along the way he's been fortunate to represent and work on 1/4 scale costumes from other Broadway Tony Award Winning shows such as Disney's Beauty and the Beast, 1998 revival Cabaret, The Secret Garden, 1999 revival You're a Good Man Charlie Brown, Legally Blonde:The Musical and WICKED. You can check out Johns current and previous work on the BC/EFA website here: http://www.broadwaycares.org/events/bears.cfm
John became a Twilight fan after picking up the first novel on a business trip in 2007. "I saw the display at Barnes and Noble…the black and red cover drew me in. After I read the synopsis, I knew it was a 'must buy'. At that point, I had no idea that a movie was in the works. Needless to say, I was hooked from the first chapter. By the time I had finished the book I went straight into NEW MOON. That's the one that made me a fan. By the end of Chapter 3, I had to cancel my previous plans that night because I was so emotionally charged. I remember weeping over my Boca Burger that Friday night! These characters are so well-written, both for page and screen, that it's hard to believe they don't actually exist!"
John's fascination with the Twilight book series lead him into curating one of the largest private collections of Twilight film props and wardrobe. He has spent countless hours researching, searching and finding both screen-worn pieces and exact duplicates of costumes and props worn/used by Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed, Ashley Greene, Jackson Rathbone and Rachel Lefevre in the TWILIGHT and NEW MOON films for his personal enjoyment. We are proud to have John and his assistant Maggie at Twi-Tour Atlanta! They will be on hand to share his amazing collection, so have your camera's ready - you won't want to miss the chance to have your photo taken with some of Twilightdom's most iconic costume pieces, including Edward's wool peacoat and Bella's blue prom dress!
Photo's of the costumes and props are encouraged, but please be respectful to John, his collection and everyone in attendance.
