Her Universe announces Marvel products

Her Universe Marvel

Her Universe has announced the first wave of their new Marvel line! There’s more coming, including a Loki dress, Ashley Eckstein tells The Daily Dot. A Black Widow hoodie will be available at San Diego Comic Con. And Ashley herself will be voicing Dagger of Cloak and Dagger in the animated Ultimate Spider-Man.

The line is also part of Marvel’s own “Characters and Creators” initiative, which is targeting women and girls. (The new Ms. Marvel is an earlier example.)

Have Marvel and Her Universe made an alliance?

We know that Her Universe is expecting to announce several new liscensees, and if this Captain America shirt (prematurely?) available for order on ThinkGeek is any indication, Marvel is indeed one of them. Unless Ashley is suddenly modeling other lines… (Via @Shadadukal)

Note the shirt itself looks pretty familiar… (h/t @Jessin2D)

UPDATE: And here’s a Captain America tank at Hot Topic. (h/t @brownjawa)

hu-cupcakesIt’s Ashley Eckstein’s birthday, and Her Universe is celebrating by debuting a new ‘Come to the dark side – we have cupcakes‘ t-shirt, plus 40% off on all Ahsoka Tano-themed items and free Her Universe lanyards with every order. The birthday specials run through Sunday.

Celebration Europe: a trip around the store!

The Celebration Store had its soft open on Thursday night, with exhibitors, VIPs, and Jedi Master level-badge holders getting a shot to pick up their Celebration merchandise. Her Universe’s shop was part of the Celebration store, and Ashley Eckstein was on hand to give us a tour of the Her Universe gear at Celebration. Plus shirts, football/soccer gear, barware, and a visit from Admiral Ackbar?

Several of my fellow convention attendees enabled my shopping, and I escaped there with a ton of damage to my credit card bill. But I did show off my new Boba Fett messenger bag to Jeremy Bulloch!

UPDATE: Here are the Thursday photos!

Course of the Force hits southern California

Course of the Force moved to southern California over the weekend, with Day 4 (Friday) of the relay going from Pacific Palisades to Santa Monica, and then Day 5 (Saturday) from Santa Monica to Huntington Beach, and Day 6 ending in Oceanside. There were conivals, movie screenings, and of course, fans young and old running with the lightsaber in the relay for Make-A-Wish. I went out to the Oceanside Conival on Sunday to meet up with my Team Hondo teammates and we had a blast – all before our big part of the relay on Monday morning!

Ashley Eckstein gives Alex Albrecht a taste of VaderingWe’ve got the Day 4 recap video above, which has a really adorable Costume of the Day: an Artoo Dress, and there’s more photos over at the blog summary of the day, and some catching up with Robot Chicken writer Kevin Schinick.

Also, the Day 5 recap from Huntington Beach, with some more celebrity runners, Jennifer Landa’s Millennium Falcon dress, and more. Plus the photos and text of day five, and a Behind the Saber with actor Danielle Panabaker.

Molly Quinn as Mara Jade for 2013 Course of the ForceDay 6 had the sail barge cruise down the interstate from Orange County to Oceanside, where the relay picked up for a few more miles, then ended at a conival at the Oceanside Pier. There’s the official write up with photos, including Castle‘s Molly Quinn as Mara Jade.

COTF-2013-Jawajames-ArtooI went out to the Conival to meet up with my fellow relay participants on Team Hondo. After some cool megasized Icesaber Otter Pops and taking some photos at the Cinemark booth, we relaxed in the sun to the Springsteen tribute band, Thunder Road. You can check out all my fun Conival photos on Flickr! Also, I got to photobomb Team HTown Jedi as they came in to the conival. While we had been leading them in the afternoon with fundraising, they’ve gotten the upper hand with a big donation late in the day. But you can show that pirates are better than Jedi by supporting me, or Dani and Lindsay!

Team Hondo – Dani, Lindsay, and myself will all be running tomorrow morning in the Oceanside and Carlsbad areas in the 8 am to 10:30 am timeframe – watch #TeamHondo on Twitter in the morning for more details if you are in the area and want to cheer us on!

Course of the Force: Day 2 recap & tech visits

The official Course of the Force recap video of the second day of the lightsaber relay is now up, hosted by Chris Hardwick, Carrie Keagan and Ashley Eckstein, with plenty of shots of the relay participants in San Francisco from AT&T Park to across the Golden Gate Bridge. Today, before heading down to southern California, the Course of the Force made some stops at some of the different tech giants in the Bay Area, visiting Google and YouTube. Check out more Course of the Force coverage from the first few days in the Bay Area.

Her Universe debuts Mara Jade, Jaina Solo tees


Ashley Eckstein’s Her Universe is bringing the expanded universe to SDCC! They’ll be debuting a new Mara Jade tee using Daryl Mandryk’s art from the Choices of One paperback cover, and a Jaina Solo tee using John VanFleet’s art from the Sword of the Jedi teaser image. Only 100 of each will be offered at the con, however, and they’ll only be online “for a limited time only.” They’ll be online during SDCC.

It also sounds like they’ve revamped their booth, which is promising.

There are a few other debuts, including their new Walking Dead line, but you know we’re biased.

UPDATE: Here’s the chat link, and huge thanks to Ashley for the kind words!
