Twilight was last year’s hit movie based upon the series of young adult books by Stephenie Meyer first published in 2006. A sequel is due on November 20th with more movies to come in subsequent years.
Bella Swan is the protagonist in the novels and films who moves to the northwest in Washington from Arizona and falls in love with Edward Cullen, part of a family of vampires sworn to not drink human blood.
Bella Swan is a seventeen year-old girl, your typical teenager going through high school trying to fit in to a new school and trying to make new friends. Similar in that she and Edward are both outcasts at the school, she befriends him knowing that he is different.
Bella’s look isn’t that hard to mimic, the key will be in the presentation that tips off everyone as to exactly who you are. Bella is a great costume or look to be when out with a boyfriend who is willing to be an Edward-type vampire.
Bella Swan’s hair is auburn colored and just past her shoulders. Either a simple, temporary hair dye or even a wig to match the look is appropriate depending on your budget. Bella has golden-brown eyes and there are all types of colored contacts available from online retailers and eyeglass stores.
For something more startling, try some of scarier contact lenses. Be careful that you are used to contacts and take precautions if you aren’t a normal contact lens wearer.
Bella likes jewelry and wears several rings on her fingers and a unique charm bracelet with a heart. You can try to get a regular charm bracelet and add your own effects to it and perhaps even add some obvious Twilight reference like “Edward” or “Twilight”.
Bella’s blue prom dress is a famous fashion statement popular with teenage girls today. It is a dark turquoise dress with a matching bracelet on her wrist. The dress is multi-layered and could be reproduced in a sewing kit or purchased from a dress outlet or online.
Whatever you choose to do for Bella Swan’s look, Twilight will be popular now and for several years down the road. You might consider keeping the look for a while if you want to repeat the costume later on. New looks and new fashion statements when the sequels come out in theaters later this year. Twilight is a hit that won’t fade anytime soon.
