A mature Twi-Mom and Facebook friend of mine, Jennifer, had the *fabulous* idea of transforming *Pocket* Edward into Vibrating Edward (note black battery pack). She brought him to the Twi-Con L.A. event.
Jennifer was one of five chicks to win lunch with Peter Facinelli. While the lunch date was a *private* affair, here's the overview of her "Vibrating Edward" experience:
As for Vibrating Pocket Edward, I was the first of my entourage of girlfriends to ask for autographs, and being the sales person that I am, I came in w/my great opener: "Will you sign my Vibrating Pocket Edward?" Edi Gathegi was quite speechless and made a big show of putting anti-bacterial on, at which point Kellan Lutz asked if he was putting on lube.
I was so nervous, I was probably blushing like Bella too. Edward was buzzing quite powerfully the entire time, and all the actors played around w/him and asked how we came up w/the idea. This was a rudimentary design, though, so I promised he would be more "user-friendly" by TwiCon SF.
I didn't show Edward off to Peter till the autograph session, and he looked at me like he was thinking "You seemed normal at lunch, and you show up w/a vibrating doll?" If anyone brings up this story to these guys, they'll remember for sure. We stopped the line cold during the autograph signing w/all the yells and whoops, even security came over to touch Edward.
