May the 4th: Mary Franklin is Her Universe’s Fangirl of the Day!

Mary and some admirersWho’s an appropriate choice to be Her Universe’s Fangirl of the Day on May 4th? Lucasfilm’s Mary Franklin is not only Club Jade’s favorite bartending visionary, but she’s been responsible for almost every single Celebration and the Bantha Tracks newsletter. (Which, granted, may be the more impressive feat overall, but hey: We love our bar.)

You’ll want to check out Mary’s blog entries on the StarWars.com blog, particularly her series going behind the scenes at Celebration, which even features a few other Jaders here and there.

And of course you’ve been keeping up with the Fangirls of the Day, right?

Coming soon from Her Universe: Star Wars dresses!

Her Universe X-wing A-lineHer Universe Hot Topic Star Wars dressesArtoo costume tank (and mystery tee)

Her Universe has been dropping a lot of pics lately, and I have, alas, been a little too tied up to do much – until today, with the double (triple?) punch of the X-wing A-line and Hot Topic dresses. It also looks like we’re getting an Artoo costume hoodie, but I’m not sure about the purple shirt the little girl is wearing… Anyone recognize it?

We think these will be available very soon (like, next week, probably) – stay tuned! And Doctor Who fans, ThinkGeek is selling new Her Universe Time Lord and Dalek shirts, though Ashley does warn they run small.

Ashley /  Padme Nouveau 2.0?

At a recent appearance at The Orlando Science Center, Ashley Eckstein debuted a new Padme shirt. Like the red Padme Nouveau shirt, one of Her Universe’s first, the new shirt features artwork by Tsuneo Sanda.

Ashley told our pal Nanci today that it will be coming out in May, along with Rogue Squadron dress/tank and the new Clone Wars shirt she was wearing today.

And while we’re on the topic, Orlando Weekly has a video interview with Ashley in which she talks Her Universe, The Clone Wars and more.
