Rachelle was amazing! She is stunning in person!!! Oh my goodness!!!
Because I was there with Lisa (the founder of TwilightMOMS) I was able to stand over towards the media section and watch Rachelle interact with the fans. I didn't ever go through the line because I didn't want to loose my spot with a view but luckily Lisa was able to get a DVD and Calendar signed for Team Shari and Rae sweetalked the manager into giving us some autographed DVD's without going through the line. (YAY!!!!)
I'm actually glad that I didn't stand in the line and wait for an autograph because I was able to stand and watch Rachelle interact with everyone that came through the line. From what I understand she was supposed to show up, sign a few autographs and then take off. She arrived about 10:30 pm and I'm sure was planning on being gone by midnight. But that's not what happened. Rachelle sat down and started signing autographs and except for a few short breaks (for food and water) she signed until almost 2 AM! She signed something for every single person standing in line. I have no clue how many people were there but it was easily 2,000. Not only did she sign stuff for everyone but she greeted everyone that came through the line with a smile. What a trooper!!! It was obvious to me that she truly appreciated the Twilight Fans and their support.
We decided last night that Rachelle is so cool that Victoria's plot line needs to be rewritten. We just can't have it end the way it does in Eclipse. I'm thinking something along the lines of when Edward tells her James was just using her she will have a change of heart and want to become a vegetarian vampire- doesn't that sound good? That way Rachelle can still be around for Breaking Dawn ;)
In the Twilight world the debate always seems to be Team Edward or Team Jacob... I've decided that I'm now officially Team Victoria!
These are just a couple of shots I took last night. I had such a killer view!!!
Here is Rachelle and Lisa. To quote one of the news reporters that was there- "LaFevre walked right up to Hansen and greeted her as if she knew her.”
Greg (our webmaster/photographer) got some amazing shots- check them out here.
