Ashley Eckstein, founder of Her Universe and voice of Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Ahsoka Tano, had been previewing some new geeky fashion items recently and we might have been told some very exciting things were coming but this has us in hyperdrive! They’re introducing a whole new line at Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. “This year’s intergalactic event runs May 16th thru June 15th,” they write on the announcement post. “This year, Her Universe will debut an all-new Star Wars product line featuring dresses, skirts, fashion tops, tunic tanks and t-shirts in a special boutique located within Darth’s Mall.”
Eckstein, and her business partner, The Araca Group, are particularly excited to offer fans at Star Wars Weekends, for the first time, a new collectible, high-end jewelry line designed at The Sparkle Factory and made in the USA. The first offering, titled the “My Hero Collection,” features everyone’s favorite droid from the Star Wars franchise, R2-D2. All of these stunning designer pieces are available for under $100 and will debut at Star Wars Weekends and go on sale at www.HerUniverse.com on May 19th.
I personally love so many of these items, I can’t wait to get my hands on them, and that last dress takes me back to my group cosplay SDCC 2010. What do you think of the new pieces?
