Back in May, I went all out with the NJ convention. I bought gold tickets for myself and a friend, photo ops, and spent a ton. Back then, Peter Facinelli, Jackson Rathbone, Billy Burke, Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, and Michael Welch were on board to be there at one of the few-and-far-between NJ Twilight events. It WAS made clear stars had the right to cancellation, and within weeks Peter Facinelli cancelled, his photo being replaced with Justin Chon's. FINE. Next, Billy Burke cancelled, being replaced by Catherine Hardwicke. Next was Jackson Rathbone, and sometime in between Michael Welch.
To make matters worse, a few DAYS before the convention EVERY star in the list cancelled, including Christian Serratos, who was posted just days prior to her cancellation. Now the whole list of stars was replaced with Gil Birmingham, a few wolves, and Laurent. I don't have a bit of an issue with any of these stars, but with the loss of every Cullen, I was disheartened with the whole event.
After a phone call with Creation Entertainment, I was told all cancellations were due to Eclipse filming, something that has never happened in the history of all Conventions they have had in the past. I am extremely disappointed that this happened, but hats off to Creation Entertainment for being so understanding, and for awarding a full refund for all the unused tickets without question. Another convention will be held in 2010 at the same location, so if no filming is going on, i may just give it another try....
