"Twilight" fans got the outdoors feeling when camping out for a week, waiting for the premiere of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2"!

Over 2,200 people were camping outside the Nokia Theatre and Staples Centre in LA for the premiere of the final chapter. Some fans planned years for this event. Who knew teenage girls could camp?

"Twilight" is trendy for all ages. For instance, a 49-year-old lady, got a tattoo on her back of Bella's, Edward's, and Jacob's faithful moments. The tattoo cost more than $2,000. It took 11 painful hours for the tattoo to be completed.
I hope it was worth it.

In addition, fangs are trending too. Fake fangs. Real fangs. Fangs of all shapes and sizes.

One 16-year-old wanted real fangs and a dentist from Rockwall, Texas, granted her wish. The dentist used a plastic-like substance and molded long, sharp, fangs to her teeth.

Some dentists offer to attach fangs for approximately $420 per tooth. Dentists say it should last around two years.

Any interest in attending a vampire wedding?

After the release of "Breaking Dawn Part 1," last year, bridal shops started doing replicas of the dress.

The replicas were sold across the country. Unfortunately, the shops were flooded with girls pretending to be engaged so they could try on the dress.
Some couples went beyond the dress by doing a "Breaking Dawn" inspired wedding ceremony, complete with the replicas of Bella's dress and Edward's tuxedo, along with the same songs from the movie, from their first kiss to their exit down the aisle. They even changed their last name to "Cullen".

"Twilight" fans can go very crazy for their obsession.

From decorating their rooms, to naming their children.

Their fans are unstoppable, so be careful of what you're going to say about "Twilight" because they can hurt you.

Or, in this case, bite you.
