From Sporting Wild Tattoos to Offering Up a Life-and-Blood Tribute to Bella and Edward's Child, These Hard-Core Twilight Devotees Show Enduring Loyalty to the Hit Saga
"I just wanted something big and special," says the 50-year-old Reading, England, resident, who has spent 36 hours and thousands of pounds getting her Twilight ink. "A friend gave me the DVD of the first movie in 2009. I was immediately hooked." The art initially shocked her husband-"He said, 'What were you thinking?'" she says-but Ward has no regrets. "I've never been so comfortable with myself since I had this done."
When Salera, 21, got inked with a quote from Jasper to Alice, "the worst part was when the needle got near the spine," she says.
Abernathy, 26, chose to get a tattoo of this quote from Bella to Edward because it "really speaks to me, and anyone can relate to it."
"I am proud of being a Twi-hard," says Rather, 35, who's reread the series 10 times and credits it with motivating her to write.
"I automatically thought that quote was great," says Rigsbee, 25. "I felt like the stupid lamb waiting for my lion."
'WE NAMED OUR BABY RENESMEE'
AFTER PORING THROUGH NAME BOOKS, SHAUN and Melissa Ivers couldn't agree on what to call their baby girl. That's when Shaun-who was reading Breaking Dawn right before his wife was due to give birth-got the idea to follow Bella and Edward's lead. "I threw 'Renesmee' out there," says Shaun, 33. Melissa, who's also a Twilight fan, liked it right away and got more excited when her daughter, now 21 months old, turned out to be the spitting image of the bronze-haired part-vamp part-human child. "When you read a book, you get a mental picture, and when my daughter was born, I saw my Renesmee," says Melissa, 28. Of course, there is a downside to the name. "Her grandparents had a hard time saying it," says Melissa (the New Hampshire couple pronounce it Ruh-NEZ-may), "but everybody's used to it now." Plus, the name offers lots of nickname potential. Says Melissa: "Nessie, Rezzie and Rennie are the main ones people call her."
Foy, 10, will play Renesmee in Breaking Dawn. Stephanie Meyer called Foy an "amazing young actress" on the film's Facebook page.
