Oh, those poor little Twilight-addled tweens–as if they weren’t already goggly-eyed with quasi-chaste adoration of Edward Cullen, hero of Stephenie Meyer‘s Twilight books.  How they will melt when they see this utterly shameless New Moon poster that portrays a melancholic Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) in a state of tasteful-ish dishabille.

  1. I’m giving away my age and fondness for these books, but I have to say that that’s not the actual poster for New Moon; It is fan-made.

  2. Thank you for the correction, Jane. Accuracy knows no age–and Twilight fandom is an all-ages affair, I find (evidenced by the Twilight Moms blog).
