World's Strangest Conventions
TwiCon, Dallas, TX
What It Is: A brand-new, weekend-long clan gathering for fans of Stephenie Meyer’s teen-vampire Twilight book series, featuring cast meet-and-greets, a masquerade ball, fan-fiction contests, and a fan-made art gallery.
Who Goes: Black-clad, black nail-polished, and almost certainly teenage Twi-hard fans (that’s really a term) from all over the U.S. are sure to mob the first TwiCon. Attendees under the age of 18 need a chaperone, so expect to see a few mother-daughter tantrums.
