With the phenomenal success of Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight series and the subsequent movie adaptations it should come as no surprise that the franchise has inspired a host of funny, quirky, and downright bizarre merchandise. Even Twilight star Kristen Stewart is amazed at some of the baubles up for grabs.
"I've heard that there are pretty obscene items that you can get with the boys' faces on them," Stewart said an interview with MTV. "And that is just actually really weird — not even funny weird, just weird."
Underwear, Christmas ornaments, life-sized pillows, there isn’t much you can’t find with a Twilight spin. Here are a few funny weird and just plain weird Twilight-inspired items.
Fans who long to cuddle up with the pale and mysterious Edward Cullen can make their dream come true (sort of) with the Edward manllow. “Sleep with him, cuddle with him, use him as a neck rest, the Edward Manllow is there to be your man and pillow all in one,” boasts the creator of the strange product. Are you Team Jacob? There’s a manllow for the hunky werewolf as well, or was. The original manllows appear to have sold some time ago but who’s to say there won’t be more?
For Twihards who need a bit more brooding in the bathroom, there’s the Robert Pattinson shower curtain. Pair it with the Twilight toilet paper and you’re all set.
Fans can prepare their favorite Twilight dishes thanks to Gina Meyers (no relation to Stephanie Meyer) Love at First Bite: The Unofficial Twilight Cookbook. With such recipes as “I Dare You to Eat Pizza Edward” and “Blushing Bella Punch,” culinary enthusiasts are sure to love the cookbook inspired by the supernatural creatures of Forks, Washington.
Nothing captures the Christmas spirit quite like an ornament with a werewolf, a vampire, and their human lover. Hallmark’s Eclipse-inspired ornament goes on sale this month so fans have plenty of time to scoop up the holiday décor.
Kristen Stewart finds underwear emblazoned with the faces of her Twilight co-stars’ “funny weird,” as opposed to regular weird, but to Twihards the Twilight bra and panty set is a way to get up close and personal to their favorite stars.
For ladies who want a more, uh, intimate Twilight experience there’s The Vamp (NSFW). It’s pale, it sparkles, and it retains heat and cold so women can “Toss it in the fridge for that authentic experience!"
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse – Part 1 hits theaters in November.
