TwiCon starts Today

TwiCon is a convention based solely on all things Twilight of course! The event will be held in Dallas, Texas at theand it will run all the way to Sunday August 2nd.

TwiCon 2009 has sold out, even at $255 a ticket. That buys attendees four days of access to serious-minded academic panel discussions (one is called “Your mood swings are kinda giving me whiplash: Twilight Fans and the Negotiation of Gender and Feminism”), Bella-themed self-defense classes, a TwilightMOMs meeting room, a fan fiction contest and (natch) a Red Cross blood drive.

According to Becky Scoggins, one of the four main organizers of the event:

Our biggest goal for this year is to make sure that Stephenie knows we appreciate her. We’re not trying to make money off of her, we just want her to know that 3,000 fans got together to talk about her books. To even think that people are getting together to talk about books feels really good.
