Twilight fans camp out for vampire farewell

LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Thousands of excited Twilight fans have been camping out in Los Angeles to await the last episode of the blockbuster saga - and not even chilly temperatures could cool their vampire passions.

The past few nights have been decidedly brisk by California standards, but that has not deterred what has become something of a November tradition: a small tent city sprouting up outside the Nokia Theatre in downtown LA.

"Robeeeert!", "Kristeeeen!" and "Tayloooor!" come the regular cries from teenage fans agog to see their heroes at the red carpet - sorry black carpet - premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2 on Monday evening.

The Twilight mini-camp began last Thursday, with some willing to camp out for days for an autograph, a photo or just a smile from the stars of the movie, the fifth and final installment of the saga.
