SDCC ’11 | Twilight fans stake out ‘Camp Breaking Dawn’

Camp Breaking Dawn, outside the San Diego Convention Center

As sure as the moon rises in the East and vampires sparkle in sunlight, die-hard fans of the Twilight series line up early for Summit Entertainment’s Hall H presentation at Comic-Con International in San Diego. But just how early? By at least one account, there were about 20 Twihards outside the San Diego Convention Center late yesterday afternoon, becoming the founders of this year’s version of “Camp Twilight” — or “Camp Breaking Dawn,” if you prefer. Within hours, that number more than doubled, with as many as 50 devotees eagerly awaiting a panel that doesn’t begin until 11:15 a.m. Thursday.

Even the most hardcore comic-book enthusiasts — those who travel hundreds of miles and lay out hundreds, even thousands, of dollars to get a sketch from a favorite artist, sit through panels about favorite characters and rub sweaty elbows with like-minded individuals — have difficulty understanding this level of devotion to Stephanie Meyer’s novels and the movie adaptations.

However, that doesn’t mean members of other fandoms can’t offer a little convention advice to Team Edward and Team Jacob. “Dear Twihards in line at Hall H for #Twilight on Thurs: It is only Monday” Jo Garfein tweeted. “Pattinson will be able to smell you in that 1st row. Deodorize!”

My little sister and I wish that we can be there but we live in Milwaukee. :( And we BIG fans of twilight we will give up anything just to see the cast of twilight.

If I had no responsibilities @ home I would be camping out myself. I dont care that I am 27 years, old a mother and wife. I love twilight…. Cant wait til 11/18/11!!!!!!!!!!!:)

If they’re camping out in front of Hall H, how do they plan to get their badges so they can actually get into Hall H come Thursday? Don’t they realize that, even if they leave someone in line to hold their place, the Comic-Con staff has strict rules against that and they’ll lose their places?

Not to mention that last year people got robbed while they slept. So dumb.
