Sure, she’s in the catsuit, because of course she is, but it’s still pretty neat. This sketch, by Shunya Yamashita, was posted on the Kotobukiya Facebook today. (Thanks to @ASMzine for bringing it to our attention!)
If you’re into that whole Christmas ornaments thing, you probably already know that today is the day that Hallmark’s ornaments (including but not limited to the Star Wars ones) are in stores beginning today. If you weren’t aware… Head out to the store! Remember that the Boushh one is limited edition, so if you want it, pick it up now!
And don’t forget about the NYCC/SDCC-exclusive rancor!
UPDATE: And here’s a limited edition Boushh that you only have to travel as far as your local Hallmark store to get! (Granted, the limited editions still sell out quickly.)
Sure, it’s a little fuzzy, but you get the idea… And there’s a distinct Return of the Jedi vibe, fitting with this year being the movie’s 30th. We’ll get a closer look when the new ornaments go live on Hallmark’s site. And as for the event exclusive for SDCC and NYCC? It’s the rancor!
Thanks to Rach for the picture, and we’ll let you know when Hallmark takes it all up for public viewing.
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.
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.
In a new interview with About.com, Ashley Eckstein says that Her Universe hopes to expand beyond t-shirts. She namechecks “dresses, leggings, skirts, cardigans.” They already have one dress – the TARDIS, which remains a Hot Topic exclusive – but the idea of cardigans is getting a lot of love online.
And let’s not forget the Rogue Squadron sketch, which could (maybe) become a dress…
For the more immediate future, Ashley mentions Her Universe branded items:
I am very excited because we are currently designing my first Her Universe branded collection. Up until this point we’ve only focused on licensed designs, but girls have been asking for Her Universe branded items as well. These designs will be very graphic and inspirational. We tell girls to “Dream Your World. Be Your World. Flaunt Your World.” and I want our branded designs to represent that whimsy, inspiration and power.
What would you like to see Her Universe tackle beyond the types of tops, pajamas, jewelry and tote bags that they’ve already produced?
