The cost of being a ‘Twilight’ fan: An infographic

With the final Twilight film coming up in less than two weeks, you may be wondering what being a dedicated fan to the Saga has done to your wallet.

This infographic breaks down the numbers.

The average fan reportedly spends $176 total when purchasing a couple pieces of merchandise, all the DVDs, all the movie tickets, and all the books. This does not include the final film, Breaking Dawn – Part 2. When included, these costs may jump up to around $200 total. Still pretty cheap for a five-year franchise!

Meanwhile, the cost of a diehard Twilight fan is significantly more expensive: If you go to all the conventions, purchase all the box sets, and pick up lots of expensive merchandise you’re expenses will be reaching close to $60,000!

After reviewing all the details below, tell us: Which of these expenses line up with yours? We’re sure many of you exceed the basic fan numbers, and most don’t get close to “the cost of utter devotion.”

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 hits theaters November 15 at 10 PM in most theaters. See the newest clip, where Jacob tells Bella and Edward he’s finally happy for them, in our previous story. For added fun, be sure to check out a behind the scenes look at the making of the film.

    Wow! Still, two-hundred bucks for the average fan is pretty low…

  • Jack

    I really hoped I would click this and the cost of being a Twilight fan would be “all your friends and dignity.”

      “Apply ice to burned area.”

      lmao, glad you said it

      Fuck you

        Wow, you need to calm the hell down. It sucks that your username suggests you’re a Divergent fan. It’s a shame you have to be part of the Divergent fandom with an attitude like that.

      I wish I could ‘like’ this comment infinite times

    I wonder if this has been done for Harry Potter?

      Man, I don’t even want to THINK about how much money I’ve spent on HP. Although if they do one, they should include a spot for Quidditch players as well (since we pay tons of additional money for brooms, equipment, uniforms, and travel costs for tournaments…that stuff would add up nicely, I would think).

    “If you go to all the conventions, purchase all the box sets, and pick up lots of expensive merchandise you’re expenses will be reaching close to $60,000!”

    “You’re” needs to be “your”.

    Harry Potter one please :) then perhaps a poll of sorts to see who is where

    I bought all the special edition DVDs from Target, so I’m closer to $120 for movies without BD-pt2. I’d say I’m between the “Average Fan” and “Twihard Fan”. I haven’t bought anything from Hot Topic for Twilight, but I was a regular shopper at Twilighttees once upon a time. I also have all of the books in paperback, hardcover and movie tie in plus the two Twilight Graphic Novels and the Illustrated Guide. I’ve probably spent (or had people spend on me for gifts) between $500-1000 and honestly, I don’t regret any of it. I love this fandom (thought maybe not some of the crazy tween fangirls) and I love the story. Truthfully though, I’ve probably spent the same on the HP fandom too. I’m a dedicated fan to all of my fandoms.

    Why are worldwide grosses used for all films except Breaking Dawn 1, for which domestic box office gross is used ?

  • http://misshermionejeangranger.tumblr.com/ Ruxandra

    I thought Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 had the highest grossing midnight release… It grossed 43.5 million, last time I checked that was more then 30 million

    • http://twitter.com/angrykittykj Krystol

      They were probably saying the highest grossing midnight screening of the four Twilight movies so far. Nowhere on there does it say “Highest grossing midnight screening of all time.”

        Hh, makes sense. Misunderstanding on my part :p

    I would like one of these for Harry Potter :)

  • Lindsey

    How embarrassing for them…

  • Mackenzie

    I would LOVE to see a Harry Potter one!

  • Slytherinhero01

    Paying for a ticket to see Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 = $8 dollars. Buying a Twilight t-shirt for the midnight premiere = $20 dollars. Finding out that most people think you have no taste whatsoever in literature = priceless.

    Once I received a packet from Amazon saying that my dad had got me a present. I open the box and there was the New Moon Board Game. No note, no explanation, just the board game. I don’t even like Twilight.

      That last sentence totally made this comment xD

    Harry Potter please! It’ll probably take a while though because there’s so much freaking merchandise!

    Not as much as the cost of being a Harry Potter fan.

  • Kennedy

    Interesting that the movies sales peaked at eclipse
