Her Universe Introduces Everyday Cosplay

Press Release:

This Halloween, Geek Girls do not have to sacrifice fashion for a cheap costume they’ll wear only once. Actress Ashley Eckstein, the voice of Ahsoka Tano on Star Wars: The Clone Wars and founder of the female sci-fi apparel line, Her Universe™, revealed today her line of fashionable costume hoodies, tops and a Hot Topic exclusive TARDIS dress dubbed “everyday cosplay” just in time for the Halloween season. Whether you’re a fan of Star Wars, Star Trekor Doctor Who, Her Universe has you covered to be the stylish one this fall and all year long. And now, until October 22nd (for guaranteed 10/31 delivery), Her Universe (www.heruniverse.com) is offering FREE GROUND SHIPPING on any order of $50.00 or more.

“I have a tub full of Halloween costumes that I have spent a lot of money on which I’ve only worn once,” said Eckstein. “My goal for our ‘everyday cosplay’ line is for girls to be able to wear these fashionable costumed looks on Halloween and all year round! I’ve always been a savvy shopper and I try to get the most for my money.”

New to the “everyday cosplay” line from Her Universe is the Star Trek Spock zip-up hoodie featuring the famous original series blue uniform top where fangirls, with the hood up, can be their favorite Vulcan, complete with pointy ears. Also new this fall season is the Star Wars: The Clone Wars Ahsoka Tano adult tunic top which complements the already released Ahsoka tunic for young girls and the very popular Princess Leia costume hoodie - perfect for any Halloween party or everyday wear. For female Whovians, Eckstein has collaborated with retailer Hot Topic to create Her Universe’s first

fashionably-fun, stylized dress based on Doctor Who’s beloved time-traveling TARDIS – available online NOW at Hot Topic and at Hot Topic retail stores. And what better way to accessorize all of these pieces than with the new Her Universe Star Wars Halloween Tote Bag featuring all-new original art by renowned artist Katie Cook – perfect for fans of any age for school, work, shopping and, of course, trick or treating! Katie’s very popular Her Universe Halloween Tote Bag sold out last year at record speed! The bags are only available for a limited time, so get them while supplies last.

“I was thrilled when Ashley asked me to do another Halloween bag design,” said Katie. “I’ll take any chance I get to draw Darth Vader in a silly costume! Ashley and I came up with the idea for this year’s bag at Celebration a few weeks ago and I couldn’t wait to come home and get started on it.”

All of these “everyday cosplay” pieces for Halloween and beyond can be found on heruniverse.com with the Doctor Who TARDIS dress available NOW online at Hot Topic and Hot Topic retail stores. Eckstein can be seen wearing many of the “everyday cosplay” pieces as co-host for MTV Geek’s coverage (mtv.com/geek/) of New York Comic Con October 11th-14th.
