Regal Gown A-Line Dress

February 17, 2017

Independent fan fashion is showing more love for the prequels.  LadyJediScientist found this dress on Redbubble:

aldrx2350front-c435560720960-bgf8f8f8

Yours for $65.00 but Redbubble has frequent discount promotions.  You can also get leggings with the same design from the same shop.

Hint, hint licensees and retailers:  fans will fill in the missing gaps.

Upcoming Stuff From Her Universe

January 26, 2017

The HerUniverse.com site relaunched two days ago (and if you sign up for their new mailing list, you get a 25% off coupon) and to commemorate the occasion, Ashley Eckstein did a live chat on Facebook.  The video is available on the Her Universe Facebook page (with plans to eventually put it up on YouTube).  It’s an hour long and lots of topics are discussed but to narrow it down–thanks to a summary from The Kessel Runway–here’s what is relevant to prequel fans:

*There’s a Naboo-themed cardigan and skirt coming out this summer.  Woo hoo!

*More Ahsoka stuff is on the way.  A sweatshirt for adults (plus and regular) and a long-sleeved tee for kids are available now.  A new tee will debut for Celebration.  They’d really like to do an entire Ahsoka collection.

This wasn’t mentioned in the video but the Naboo hoodie is due out in March; Midtown Comics’ web site had a placeholder for it.

New Stuff From UNIQLO

December 9, 2016

UNIQLO has made some cool and unique Star Wars t-shirts over the past couple of years.  It’s launching a whole lot more stuff to coincide with “Rogue One,” as evidenced by an event in London.  All  of the following photos are from Jedi News, which got to attend the party.  As you might imagine, most of the tees, jackets, patches, and pins are either from RO or the OT.  But a few new prequel tees managed to get included.

Natela Datura Design’s shop on Etsy has a handknit Captain Rex sweater that can keep you warm this winter, starting at $250.

Is A Naboo Collection Coming From Her Universe?

October 28, 2016

Maybe.

Late today came the bombshell that Hot Topic has purchased Her Universe.  Ashley Eckstein is still staying with the company and there are plans to expand into offering men’s items (including Ahsoka wear), more plus sizes, and products available to the European market.  Eckstein did a half hour or so chat on Facebook where she answered questions live.

The really interesting part (to most of us anyway) comes about in the last 6 minutes of the chat.  Here Eckstein mentions the design team creating a beautiful Naboo dress and then mentions there are designs for an entire collection.  She says she’d like to get some of those designs made, possibly for next spring or summer.  You can watch the whole thing here.  Let’s hope these do make it to market and they’re not just made for teenagers.  In the nearer future, there’s supposed to be an Ahsoka design for the holidays.

More Cool Stuff Found Online

July 28, 2016

Thank goodness for people like you to find this all for me to post about!  Dan on the SWPAS Facebook posted links to some men’s/unisex sublimated t-shirts featuring Drew Struzan’s poster art from each film:  TPMAOTC, and ROTS.  Apparently the shirts run small.

Think Geek has on sale a Frames Boxed Set based on the Star Wars Frames books.  It comes with 102 postcards from all six of Lucas’s movies along with a frame to display them.  It’s on sale for $16.99.

Some independent artists are selling some cool wall art too, like this AOTC poster or this Padmé print.

You craftsy types might be interested in this perler bead Padmé or this embroidery template to make your Queen Amidala cosplay.

More Independent PT Tee Designs

July 26, 2016

The Kessel Runway interviewed the proprietors of Beep Boop Beep Clothing, an independent company that makes a lot of cool saga t-shirt designs (some Disney too).  I bought their Barbie-style logo Padmé shirt a little while ago.  Now they have a sweet new Queen Amidala design.  They apparently have a lot of limited edition designs that come and go fast too.

Anyway, this is the money quote from The Kessel Runway interview that emphasizes the point I made yesterday in my post on what we can learn from Legends fans:

Your range includes Padme’ Amidala inspired designs – what are your thoughts on the lack of licensed Padme’ Amidala themed apparel?

We are honestly quite surprised that there aren’t more! We feel like with many of Star Wars lesser-known characters as well as character from the prequels (like Padme), that many big-name brands don’t represent them because they think they won’t sell enough. They think all the business is with Leia, R2 merchandise, etc. I think part of the reason why our shirts have such a loyal fan-base is because we realize that the fans that are very invested in the Star Wars universe care very much about other characters too, and crave to see more of them. (In fact, our Max Rebo tee is one of our best-sellers) Padme isn’t as mainstream of course as Leia, since she hasn’t been around as much and wasn’t the original Star Wars girl. But being very close to many people in the geek community we know that she means a great deal to women.

Exactly.
