We may have just gotten HerUniverse.com back but they’re already having a Spring Cleaning Sale! They’ve got a nice selection of Star Wars, Doctor Who, and Marvel pieces available and I pulled out a few of my favorites above. I can attest to how comfy the Imperial LOVE hoodie shirt is as I just bought one for myself a few weeks ago. Everything within the sale is 30% off and the rest of the site is 15% off right now. In other words… it’s a good time to pick up some more Her Universe pieces for a decent price if you’ve been considering it.
On Friday, Hot Topic released their latest geek fashion collection. This time, they focused in on Doctor Who and Holy Time Lord did it wow! Some of the pieces have even already sold out online (much to our despair.) To help tide us over, we’ve gone ahead and styled one of the fabulous new TARDIS dresses that puts a fresh spin on something we’ve certainly seen before.
Keeping track of all the new geek fashion pieces out there has been getting harder and harder lately. There are just so many awesome pieces out there! This month, Her Universe did the equivalent of a mic drop and released a good 30+ products including a ton of new Star Wars ones. As Her Universe now has different pieces in their own online shop, ThinkGeek, Hot Topic, and in Disney parks, we thought we’d attempt to try and summarize all the new pieces. We can’t really pull together a comprehensive view of what’s at the parks but we have seen this adorable R2-D2 print dress!
First up, Hot Topic!
Hot Topic definitely got some of the coolest pieces in this limited edition collection. That Vader jacket is absolutely sublime and we at WHR are always on Team Cape Dress. It looks like the BB-8 jacket will only be available online and you can buy both that jacket and the Vader one both at Hot Topic and at Her Universe. We haven’t gotten our hands on any of these yet but the Vader sweater has gotten some rave reviews on social media.
Keep your eyes out in December for more from Hot Topic. There’s a fabulous Princess Leia inspired dress on the horizon and Torrid should have the plus sized versions of the collection around the same time.
On the main Her Universe site, there are more than a few new items that popped up yesterday in addition to the ones from earlier this month. Star Wars, Marvel, Doctor Who, and Star Trek all got at least one new item in the release yesterday. By our count, over 20 new pieces went up so we settled for pulling out some of our favorites to highlight. It’s definitely a sweatshirt heavy release from the Loki one to the glow-in-the-dark lightsaber one based on the super popular t-shirt! We also have to call out the new Doctor Who Christmas sweater and the Star Wars one (not pictured) is so delightfully ridiculous that we can’t help but love it.
The real standout from these latest pieces is the stormtrooper skirt. It appears to be of a similar cut to the Rebel Alliance one from last year but may not have the slip that didn’t thrill some of us. The best thing though is that this print looks like it’s actually subtle enough to fly under the radar since the helmets offer a side view.
All of this is in addition to the leggings, muscle shirts, and super cute t-shirts from earlier this month. (Check out the Do Or Do Not one. Trust us.)
Whew! That’s a lot of Her Universe? And this may not even be everything for the year! Anyone have a favorite piece from this latest set of releases?
Better get your X-mas lists ready, ladies. There’s probably going to be a lot of Her Universe on there.
It’s no secret that we adore Her Universe around here and therefore it’s only fitting that we take a moment today to celebrate their 5th Anniversary! This is a company that has done a TON for the geek ladies out there in such a short time and I am forever grateful that Ashley Eckstein took the initiative to start the company five years ago. My first piece was the red Padmé Nouveau t-shirt which I purchased at Dragon*Con 2010 and since then, I haven’t looked back. It’s amazing to me that not only can we geek girls now buy cute shirts to express our fandom but that we can also buy awesome things like cardigans, lightsaber skirts, and freaking X-Wing pilot dresses.
To celebrate the event, Her Universe is partying in style. 300 orders placed today will randomly receive a gift certificate valued between $5 and $500. The Star Wars Burnout Tee, ESB Poster Tee, and the Manga Hoodie are all being rereleased. Finally, there will be a livestream event running from about 10am to 5pm PST.
Below is just a selection of the many many many Her Universe products we’ve featured over the years. (And by selection, I mean the ones I happened to have pictures of on my phone.) Check out our Her Universe tag and see all of their cool pieces we’ve featured on the blog over the last three years. Do you have a favorite Her Universe piece? Sound off in the comments and tell us!
The temperatures are still pretty chilly which means that it’s great to have options besides t-shirts to express your geeky side. Thankfully, Her Universe has us covered on this front as they’ve continued to expand their options. One of their newest pieces is this fun new Doctor Who Varsity Hoodie so obviously we had to style it!
