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.

Hello Collective lovelies! Katie here, and the time has come to show the geeky mamas in our lives just how much we appreciate them. Well, actually, we should be showing them every day….but ESPECIALLY this Sunday because it is Mother’s Day! Today I’m going to share with you some gifts that I think would be perfect for every different kind of nerdy mom out there.

The Nerdy Cook

For the woman who loves to cook, there are a plethora of great nerdy kitchen items out there, here a few ideas.

A Death Star Waffle Maker

Oh yes, you heard that right. It’s a waffle maker shaped like a death star, so your mom can feel extra bada** as she destroys (eats) it. The dark side never looked so delicious.
