Naughty or nice? That’s totally your personal business, man. But whenever our nearest and dearest come around with the eternal question of What Would You Like For Christmas? well, nobody can accuse us of being unprepared. Especially when it comes to geek flavoured fashion and dressing like a superhero on the low-low.
(We took some of our cues from Hawkeye, Ms Marvel and Dazzler. Of course.)
We love what we like. And if you’re coming up short for stylin’ gift-giving ideas at the last minute, we have you covered.
Oh yes. We also need this to exist. For reasons.

Sometimes, it’s just love at first sight with a t-shirt. Or at least that’s what it felt like for me with the Padme Nouveau t-shirt from Her Universe. Until ten minutes before, I had never even heard of Her Universe and yet there me and my friends were, chatting with the lovely Ashley Eckstein, and that gorgeous red shirt was just sitting there on display and calling to me. (I swear. It was actually saying “Briiiiaaaa! Buuuuuy meeeeee!”) Twenty minutes later, I just had to give in and I’ve never regretted buying it. It’s honestly one of my favourite t-shirts and getting to wear it with something besides jeans is always fun.
Plus? I rediscovered these unworn tights at the bottom of my drawer while looking for something to help jazz up this outfit and am super glad I did.
Padme Nouveau T-Shirt: Her Universe
Pleated Skirt: Guess
Gold Flats: Lauren by Ralph Lauren
You can check out all of the new products (and all of the existing ones) at the Her Universe shop but we just had to highlight some of them here. Ashley’s added two new shirts to Her Universe’s rapidly growing collection of Doctor Who tops, one of them being the below pictured ‘Girl Who Waited’ shirt and a shirt that simply reads ‘Whovian’. Other new t-shirts include a Star Trek shirt and a really neat Japan inspired Star Wars shirt. My favourites, however, are the fabulous Battlestar Galactica sweatshirt and the Darth Vader PJs. (Just tell me that grumpy Vader isn’t adorable!)
To top it all off, Her Universe is having some Cyber Monday exclusive deals (like an adorable Chewbacca pin) so make sure you check out all of their awesome items this Monday! (Or, y’know, add them to your own Christmas list…)
As you may have noticed, we’ve been slowly aggregating the various costume efforts of our past years for your viewing pleasure. (And also to document the rise and fall of our wasted free time…) So we’re happy to announce that the Costumes section is up and running! You’ll find our respective galleries nestled within, as well as convention schedules and future cosplay plans.
And of course, there’s our beloved Sailor Hawkeye and Sailor Black Widow, and our shared enthusiasm for Miss Braddock as reflected in our cover pictures — just click either of them to get to our respective galleries!
We’ll also be featuring some of our costumes occasionally, and you’ll see some of our favourites make their way to our tumblr! And stay tuned as we start to get our heads back into the game for Katsucon 2013…
