The Rhonda, the Vampire, and the Wardrobe

December 28th, 2010 (11:02 am)

Rhonda has never made any secret of her disdain for Bella Swan, angsty, self-absorbed heroine of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series. Through the first two movies, she was completely supportive of those vampires who track, stalk, and otherwise terrorize Bella. Rhonda says she hasn't seen Eclipse, the third movie, but she's heard rumors that Victoria is creating an army of vampires for the sole purpose of avenging the death of her mate--a death for which Victoria holds vampire Edward responsible. Naturally, Rhonda supports Victoria's goal of killing Bella Swan to punish Edward.

Fans of the books/movies generally divide themselves between Bella's two suitors/defenders, assigning themselves to Team Edward or Team Jacob. When we watched the extras from the second movie, New Moon, Rhonda appreciated the T-shirt given to actress Rachelle Lefevre, who played Victoria in the first two movies, by her stunt double:

When I got Mattel's Victoria doll, Lindsey privately remarked that Rhonda should own one of those dolls--but wearing a Team Rhonda T-shirt. This was something I could make happen. I also thought about getting Lindsey an Alice doll, since we both like Ashley Greene's character, and making a Team Alice shirt.

Sadly, when it came time to shop, there was no Alice doll on the shelves. But I did find the Victoria doll for Rhonda. Here, modeling the T-shirts I made for Victoria, are my Alice, Bella, and Victoria dolls:

Since we all saw and liked Alice in Wonderland, Tim suggested an addition to Alice's T-shirt:

I think I finally found a Barbie doll Rhonda likes:
