TwiCon expected to sell out the house!

I guess you better buy your tickets soon, because TwiCon 2009 is expected to sell out!

NBC Washington reports:

This year's first ever "Twilight"-inspired convention, TwiCon, will be held on July 30-August 2 at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel in Dallas, Texas. Despite the $255 conference registration and $139 hotel room rate, the event is expected to sell out.

"We have 2,500 tickets for sale and we're expecting to sell out," explained Becka Grapsy, one of the organizers of TwiCon.
According to Becka, tickets have been selling to people of all ages from 11 year-olds to grandmothers, from places as far away as England and Australia.
The three-day conference will include guest appearances by the "Twilight" cast including Peter Facinelli, Jackson Rathbone, Kellan Lutz, Ashley Greene, Mike Welch, and Christian Serratos.
There will also be performances by "Twilight" fandom bands, whose music was inspired by the series. The bands will include Twilight Music Girls, Bella Cullen Project, and the Mitch Hansen Band will be headlining Friday afternoon.
In addition, there will be discussions about the books and film, a vendor hall that will sell everything from T-shirts to colored contacts, appearances by popular "Twilight" bloggers, and even a Volturi Masquerade Ball on Saturday night.

Ahem. "Popular Twilight bloggers"? Why wasn't I invited?

"Saturday's our actor day actually. So, we're going to have all the actors there during the day and then once that wraps at night, we have the biggest ballroom in the place," Becka explains. "It's kind of a classic Venetian-themed masked ball."

Sounds amazing! Hoping to be going, but at this point I doubt it. :(

TY to Jen at The Twilight Times for the tip.
