What promises to be a fantastic year in Star Wars fandom is off to great start in January and the women of Star Wars have already been getting the party started.
Over on the official site Amy Ratcliffe gave a great intro to the 7 Topics Star Wars Fans Love to Debate. Meanwhile host of Rebels Recon and social media correspondent for starwars.com, Andi Gutierrez, has started a new feature on the site called Social Scanner. It’s a peek into her favorite social media posts throughout the week with a new edition posting every Friday. It’s a great way to feature fans.
The cover was revealed for the upcoming Ultimate Star Wars – a guide to characters, creatures, locations, technology, and vehicles of the Star Wars universe. This book comes out in May and was written by Fangirls Going Rogue Host Tricia Barr as well as Adam Bray, Ryder Windham, and Dan Wallace.
The weekend is finally upon us, bringing with it time to relax, recharge and catch up with the latest Star Wars news and updates. Before the roundup begins, make sure to check out the current slashed prices for the holiday season. Following the madness behind Black Friday and Cyber Monday, many toys and other merchandise are still on sale, so if you’re in desperate need to find a gift at an affordable price, there is still time.
Star Wars Rebels Mission Series Hera Syndulla 3.75 Figure
Star Wars Rebels supervising director and executive producer Dave Filoni made a wild appearance on social media to generate excitement in the fan community. Recently, he posted a picture of the Hera Syndulla figure everyone desperately wants to add to their collections. Though no solid date is available, the Hera Syndulla and Sabine Wren figures will debut in 2015.
With the holidays fast approaching, it should come as no surprise that geek chic clothing lines, like Her Universe, are bringing the holiday cheer into your wardrobe. Most clothing retailers have the latest “ugly Christmas sweaters” geared towards male customers, but fangirls can always rely on Her Universe for fresh designs and geek chic options to wear during the winter. From adorable knit pattern dresses to a fabulous cardigan, no matter what fandom you fall into, Her Universe has got you covered.
“Where there is light, there is dark. No matter your mood, we have an affordable luxury jewelry collection to match YOU or the Star Wars fan in your life.”
Accessories are a significant component and an exemplary way to upgrade any wardrobe. Nobody knows this better than Her Universe, who recently joined forces with The Sparkle Factory to bring fangirls a brand new jewelry collection.
Made of black hematite, the Darth Vader Jewelry Collection brings out the Dark Side and provides fangirls with the opportunity to show their allegiance to the Empire. Affordable and luxurious, the collection is described to be nickel free and hypoallergenic.
Whether you’re looking to buy a present for yourself this season or you’re searching for the perfect gift to give to the fangirl(s) in your life, Her Universe has quality and fashionable items. Stay tuned to see if there are any surprise sales coming up during Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend.
If you’re a fangirl desperately looking for a Star Wars Rebels shirt to express your love and support for the new animated series, then you’re in luck! Ashley Eckstein unveiled two new Star Wars Rebels tees for fangirls of all ages at Her Universe. She wore one of the shirts on the day of the Rebels premiere back on October 3, 2014, which caught the attention of the fangirl community. Ashley even gave us the heads up on September 21, when she informed fellow fangirls that the new shirts would be coming soon, with more coming at Star Wars Celebration.
From left to right:
Join Rebellion Tee (Adult / Youth): “We are big fans of Star Wars Rebels and we ready to Join The Rebellion! Join Ezra, Kanan, Hera, Sabine, Zeb and Chopper as they fight the Empire for justice and peace. This is a missy cut shirt and runs true to size.”
Graffit Rebel Long Sleeve Tee (Adult / Youth): “A Rebel marks the spot! Sabine’s tag symbol has quickly become our new favorite icon and we are obsessed with her graffiti art. Show that you are a Rebel with this super comfy long sleeve top. Runs true to size if you like it fitted. If you want it a bit loose, we recommend going up one size.”
Back in May, the team at Her Universe released a collectible, high-end jewelry line designed by The Sparkle Factory. Known as the “My Hero Jewelry Collection,” the line features the lovable droid, R2-D2, on various pieces of jewelry.
Ashley Eckstein recently shared with fans a sneak peek of the latest Her Universe product: Darth Vader studs designed at The Sparkle Factory! Having purchased some pieces from the “My Hero Jewelry Collection,” I look forward to adding these Darth Vader earrings to my growing collection of geeky jewelry.
Made in the USA, The Sparkle Factory produces and sells quality items both online and at their Los Angeles and Milan (Italy) locations. A third location at New York City will be coming soon. Stay tuned for more Her Universe news and updates!
