I was expecting worse, judging the pictures released... But I thought over all they all looked quite good.

I found the Denali clan 'too much'. Yes, they are supposed to be beautiful, but they were over the top for me.
I didn't like Carlisle's hair. And I thought Jasper could've looked better, but at least it wasn't awful ;)

I totally loved how Bella and Edward looked! Bella becoming worse and worse was really done well!

OMG, they totally screwed up Carlisle's hair... I understand that it doens't look as good as it normally does because he also feels the stress from Bella's sickness...but this... gods... how could they do that!!

and in the additional scene... Felix looked off...


I loved loved loved the wedding dress....and later when Bella got sick. it was done perfectly...

an other big bonus was that the wolves were finally wearing shirts!!!

:lol: Marielle

I agree with you on the dress! But I also agree with someone else who wrote somewhere on the forum, that Bella could've been even more beautiful/stunning at the wedding. Yes, she was beautiful, but I feel she could've been absolutely stunning...

Hahahahaha!! A very good point Marielle ;)


I agree with you all - the majority of the wigs are horrible!! Espeically Carlisle's... Why couldn't they go back to how it was in Twilight?! Also didn't like Emmett's hair, but I thought Jasper's was ok, and I quite liked Rosalie's!

Bella & Edward looked perfect - both of them were stunning at the wedding (I absolutely LOVED the dress!!) - and they had great styling for honeymoon etc. Sick Bella was very believable!

I really didn't like the Denali clan - their contacts were too obvious! Carmen & Elezar (sp?) looked really good though! I also liked what all the humans were wearing!

Renee & Charlie looked great at the wedding! And I really liked Alice & Rose's dresses too!

Bella being sick and wasting away was excellent...made me cringe when she lowered her robe. The Denali coven scared me honestly...their contacts were much like Esme's in New Moon. Frightening and made them look unreal. They would never blend in with any humans.
The wedding was stunning. Edward was extraordinary and Bella so beautiful. Her contacts looked better than all the other movies.
I didn't much care for any hair changes, Carlisle or Jasper's but jasper's was worse in New Moon.
I wonder if Charlie is going to shave off his mustache in Part 2...?

Actually, that's a really good point! I agree, you couldn't tell at any point that she was wearing contacts, where as in the previous movies, there is a scene or 2 that her eyes sometimes looked a bit "off". Beautiful indeed! :D

I thought I saw something different with her eyes. Maybe they did use other contacts... it sure was noticable...

I was scared about some of the make up from the trailers, but it came out much better in the movie! Overall I thought the make up was good (exception was the Denali's,they were a tad over the top).

Thought Kristen as she got sick was amazing, I know it was CGI and not makeup, but it was exactly as I pictured her when I read the book! It was truly horrific, brilliant! However, I did state in my initial reaction that I thought they could have made more effort with her make up on the wedding day. I loved the dress though,it was stunning! The bit at the end! What a stunning vamp she is going to be, I can't wait, one of the bits I am most excited about is watching Bella as a vampire! Squeal!!!! On reflection, may have been why they didn't go over board with the wedding make up, there has to be a contrast when she is a vamp.

Hated Emmett's hair and Carlisle's hair, but thought Alice was the best she had looked in all the movies. Liked Jasper, Esme (hated Esme's styling in Eclipse!) and Rosalie. Thought they all looked great!

Edward, ohhh Edward, the man is beautiful. I thought he was well styled and his make up looked right. I was a bit worried from some of the clips, but it came over so much better in the movie.

Jacob, his styling was great, sowed a more grown up side and this related as he does mature in this book. I actually liked that the pack had more clothes on! He looked very handsome in the movie (although I cringe saying it, cause I am totally team Edward, and Rob is HOT!!! LOL)

Overall, I was impressed!
