it could be "yours"




Sarah spotted these at Hot Topic. So don't worry, this wristcuff looks like it belongs to a vampire, but we did not steal it from him just to sell it here. What a relief.

This may not be incorrect. In some style manuals, character names, when attached to real world objects, are quoted. It's an unusual style, but not an entirely incorrect one.

What's an "authentic replica"?

Lauren said...

I don't think those quotation marks are unnecessary. Twilight merchandise is unnecessary.

I have to agree. The merch is questionable. Are you getting a bracelet? You bet. Does it actually belong to a fictional character? Er, no.

What good fortune! Just in time for St. Valentine's Day.

I agree that character's names can be placed in quotation marks, so it's not technically "incorrect," but they are, I believe, "unnecessary" on this type of merchandise. And since that's the name of the blog, I sent the pics in! :)

It's difficult to say what the most entertaining aspect of these advertisements is. It could well be that they are authentic replicas, but I am leaning towards believing that it is that they feel the need to declare that this is, in fact, wearable jewelry, as opposed to who know what.

@JohnD--it's an "oxymoron".
