On Saturday morning at SDCC 2016, I took my time getting ready for the day–prepping my Captain America pin-up cosplay with big hair, red lips and my star-spangled sunglasses. Although I hadn’t been very excited about cosplaying for previous days of the convention, I wanted to show off my most fashionable look for a very special interview. That afternoon, I met up with Ashley Eckstein, geek chic icon, voice of Ahsoka Lekku (Star Wars Rebels), and founder of the Her Universe brand along with her business partner and Executive Producer of the CCHQ show, Jennifer Tisdale (sister of Disney channel starlet, Ashley Tisdale) the third day of San Diego Comic Con 2016. Our topics of discussion? The 2016 Her Universe Fashion Show, the brand’s plus sized collections, Comic Con HQ and, of course, Ashley’s one-of-a-kind, Star Wars Lego couture dress.

I was compelled to start Her Universe, more so, to just create a safe community where women could be themselves and not be bullied for it.
