I saw Star Wars about 22 times the summer it came out when I was 5. I wore my hair like Princess Leia before there was anything called Cosplay. I’ve written about all of this before. But last weekend I went with a young KidzVuz reporter (and her mom!) to New York Comic Con where she interviewed Ashley Eckstein of Her Universe.
Ashley is best known in the Sci-Fi world as the voice of Ahsoka Tano in Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series. But she is also an awesome fangirl promoter and supporter who saw the need for girl fan merchandise and so she built Her Universe.
I first met Ashley at Disney Social Media Moms Conference – and immediately loved everything she was about.
I will let her tell you why she started Her Universe, and you can see some of the cool merchandise yourself! But, if you have a fangirl in your life (or if you are one, since she’s got loads of grown up merch too) be sure to head over to HerUniverse.com and pick up something great. Don’t be afraid to let that geek flag fly.
