The Cullen Crest

Discussion about the Twilight movie. It's all speculation until Summit Films actually produces a script and casts it.

twilightbrandy, in reply

I DON'T think its reasonable
I DON'T like the idea!
I've decided that I dislike like the idea of a "Family Crest"... I really don't think its something that the Cullens would do!
I just don't like the idea one bit.
they try NOT to be ostentatious- they don't try to show off! they TRY to fit in for goodness' sake! (I mean, they don't succeed or anything, but they try)
why would they all wear a crest??? ((Rosalie's is VERY ostentatios))

eeeewww! the idea is grosser and grosser the more I think about it!

reply to bkl ^^

i like the whole family crest thing and i dont reckon its going to be that ostenatious..
except for rosalie's of course but i think the first few times i watch the movie the crests they all wear might just slide over my head. it wil be interesting though to see how they react to the crest - whether they make everyone constantly aware of them (which i have to say would be TOTALLY un-cullen like) or whether there is just the occasional reference to them

I really hope it isn't a big thing, I really hope that they keep it on the DL. It just seems to show-offy and if its purely for sentimental reasons, they should keep it to themselves and maybe throw in one or two reference lines to keep it going.
I'm not nessecarily warming up to it but if they keep it personal and not ostentatious- it may not be as bad as I invisualized initially...

Yeah I definately dont think that they will make a big kerfuffle over it.but then again the first time i read the news on it for some reason i didnt take it all in so by the time i went back and re-read it and watched the video again i guess i was already warmed to the idea..

yeah, see, when I saw the video, the first one I saw was Rosalie's and hers is very in-your-face...
but it just doesn't scream the Cullen's name... like, the image I get in teh book is much more reserved then they are making this family out to be, but that is just my opinion and just relative to what I feel and I recognize that fact- that someone else's vizualization could be different... it just doesn't compute too perfectly in my brain...

i dunno. i can definately see the whole reserved family side of the cullens. but there is also the materialistic side..not in a bad way..just they do express themselves with possesions..just because they can..

to be honest i don't have any problem with the cullen crest, and apparently neither does SM. Other than that i just hope they don't over-advertise it in the movie, afterall the cullens are trying to fit in their society, and having ancient crests planted everywhere won't exactly say "subtle" if you ask me...

totally get what your saying. I posted that in earlier posts, it seems a family crest would only make them stand out more. Hopefully it will be a subtle detail, and not something the whole school knows about..

The only thing is, I don't see where you all get the idea that the Cullens would be showing off the Crest. In a way it's another piece of jewelry that had a sentimental meaning connecting them all as Cullens. I don't think that Alice would go around being like "Oh look at my family crest!" It's just kind of there, I doubt there will be many lines on it. Perhaps Bella may ask Edward about it, but I think it's just kind of there to link them all together.

Rosalie's is the only one that really stand out, and perhaps it'll make the characters curious but it's likely that curiosity was over before Bella came to Forks. Plus I think many of the students in Forks know the Cullens are different, and it's not like a crest is so out of this world. Many families have that sort of thing, and some may choose to wear it in pride. But I doubt the Cullens will be going around showing off the crest. The guys generally seem to have their's hidden under their sleeves most of the time, unless the sleeve is slightly pushed up. But it's really not that noticeable.

If that came off a bit rude, I'm sorry. I just don't understand where you guys get the idea that it's showing off . . . And for that matter showing off what?
