It’s a wrap-up of the outer senshi fam jam as we pass to Sailor Pluto on the way out — signature hair bun, garnet orb, and keys of stewardship slung off the hip? It’s a lonely life between space and time, but let’s try to look a little space classic casual while we’re at it.

Her Universe: It’s like the fangirl gift that just keeps on giving.
We’ve known for a while that Ashley Eckstein has had a few new projects up her sleeve. Last week, we were officially clued in on the addition of Marvel Comics to the list of licenses that Her Universe can make clothes for. Now, we hear that they’ll be rolling out another announcement tomorrow June 26th that’ll positively transform their selection of style.
I can’t even pretend to apologize for all the puns in that last sentence.
Mind you, it’s not OFFICIALLY confirmed quite yet but with the official Her Universe Instagram posting this teaser of what looks to be an Optimus Prime dress and with Hot Topic already having the below Bumblebee dress for sale, we’re pretty confident in saying that Her Universe has the license for Transformers.
So what say you, fellow fangirls? Are you excited for this latest addition to the Her Universe line? And what licenses would you like to see them acquire next?
We first heard the rumors weeks ago… Think Geek had a Captain America shirt modeled by Ashley Eckstein for sale on their site. But that… that couldn’t be true, right? We hadn’t heard anything about a license announcement. And then Hot Topic put up a Captain America hooded tank top labeled as a Her Universe item on their site. The stars did seem as if they were starting to align… And then yesterday happened.
Let me start off by saying how incredibly PSYCHED I am that Her Universe got this license! I’m incredibly excited to see what other designs they come out with. This Captain America shirt has grown on me so much since its initial soft release. Not only is is incredibly soft and comfortable but the cut is super cute for a casual sporty shirt. It’s not a top that can really be dressed up but that’s 100% okay with me!

The signs have been there for weeks but today we finally got confirmation! Her Universe has secured a contract to make geek gear for ladies based upon Marvel characters!
