How the cast of Twilight should really look
The movie adaptations of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Saga were beset with ridiculously high fan expectations thanks to how much adulation the characters' looks received through the eyes of central narrator Bella Swan. From the impossible beauty (and sparkles) of the Cullen family vampires to the papery skin textures of the Volturi guardsmen to the animal strength of the Quileute pack members, Meyer's attention to descriptive detail meant the cinematic iterations had to be perfectly faithful to keep fans happy. While some of the characters came to life just as written, others were practically unrecognizable.
To prove our point, our brilliant Photoshop team worked their magic on some of the characters to reveal how the movie sometimes got things pretty right and sometimes totally missed the mark. Plus, we've got some of the original illustrations to show you how the movie was at times eerily perfect. (We're looking at you, Bella Swan!) Here's how the cast of Twilight should really look, according to the books.
