Twilight Convention Coming to Arlington

Hundreds of Twilight fans will be flocking to the Sheraton National Hotel (900 S. Orme Street) this weekend for the D.C. leg of the Official Twilight Saga Fan Convention Tour.

The convention, which starts today, will feature appearances by a number of Twilight stars (including Chaske Spencer, left) as well as parties, musical performances, trivia competitions, auctions, photo ops and a costume ball. Tickets to the convention range from $20 for a one day pass to $289 for a weekend ‘gold’ package.

The event will be hosted by the sisters behind The Hillywood Show, of YouTube fame.

When we reported on the convention last year, it was sharing the Sheraton with a meeting of the Nation of Islam. We’re still disappointed that no one sent us a photo of the Fanpires, Twi-Hards and Nation of Islam members together in line for continental breakfast.

    So instead of a fist fight breaking out – you think people will just try to bite each other?

    Thank you for not being in Crystal City…otherwise that would really suck!

    I’ll be here all day folks!

      I’m close enough to see the anime freaks when they come to town, and I wholeheartedly support this as well.

        At least it is not a Plushie convention. (shudder)

    Thank god I will be out of ARL this weekend! And yes Ben, lots of biting.

    This hotel attracts some crazy conventions. I stayed there once while looking at colleges in DC and there was a gay man’s leather fetish convention. I thought my mother was going to die.

      Why, did you wear the wrong color chaps? ;)-

      Not a crazy convention but that hotel used to be the HQ for the Marine Corps Marathon until the race outgrew it.

    Woohoo! I’m going to buy me some face glitter and get my chubby chasing on!
