If you’re in the entertainment industry and wondering how to tell when your star is at its height, then here’s a simple marker for you. You’ve definitely made it to the big time when something as simple a hair cut causes such a furore that it threatens to melt down the Interwebs. If you think I’m exaggerating, then you obviously aren’t familiar with the level of fame currently enjoyed (I’d use that word advisedly!) by British actor Robert Pattinson.
Pattinson, who stars as Edward Cullen in the Twilight movies, has an extremely avid fan base of admirers who follow his every move with great interest. So when the 25 year old actor made an appearance at the People’s Choice Awards in Los Angeles last Wednesday with a closely shorn buzzcut in place of his trademark stylishly unruly locks, the resulting furore threatened to send Twitter into a meltdown.
Twihards the world over were shocked to see their beloved hunky vampire Edward looking rather more like a close cropped squaddie, and took to the internet in droves to mourn the loss of Robert’s locks. The reason behind such a drastic change of look? Apparently the actor’s hair had been damaged when cut for a recent role, so he’s taken it all off in order to grow it again. Sighs of relief all round from Twilight fans I’m sure.
Whilst we cant do much to help Robert regain his hairdo any faster, we do have a few fantastic Twilight costume accessories in stock to help transform any wannabe Cullens out there. This spookily stylish Vampire Coat and a pair of fang-tastic Vampire Teeth is a great starting point for a Twilight fancy dress outfit. Finally, if you want to go all out for a really spectacular look, then top off your Twilight ensemble with some eye-catching Twilight contact lenses.
