Fandom Fashion Friday: Update and Black Friday Sale Edition

The Force Awakens Michael Kaplan-designed totes

This week we have some updates to our previous fashion articles as well as some info about Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales at some retailers with deals on geek apparel and accessories.

Update on our #Force4Fashion article:

The Bloomingdale’s totes with designs by Michael Kaplan are now available online. The three designs are Rey, BB-8, and Captain Phasma. They retail for $28 each and are on the smaller side as far as tote bags go; a notebook would peak out. Still very cool-looking. We briefly talked about these on this month’s episode of Hyperspace Theories. Bloomingdale’s is offering free shipping through December 22nd.

Bloomingdale’s has also put up their The Force Awakens window displays in NYC. Johnamarie of The Wookiee Gunner has photos and video of the windows as well as the pop-up shop inside for those of us who can’t make it out there before the windows get switched over to the Force 4 Fashion looks on December 3rd.

Note if you’re making a Rey costume, the gloves on that mannequin appear to be different from the gloves she’s been pictured wearing as well as those that have made other appearances with the costume.

The Bloomingdale’s Intergalactic Pop-up Shop is also represented online, although its contents seem to be mostly tops for males. Let’s take a moment to make shifty eyes about this.


Princess Leia dress by Her Universe at Hot Topic

Update on last week’s Fandom Fashion Friday:

The Star Wars by Her Universe collection at Hot Topic’s Princess Leia dress ($69.50) is also now available online.

This is earlier than the original December announcement so now there’s a better chance you can wear it to holiday parties as Ashley had previously mentioned.

I haven’t seen it in person yet but from the close-up photos it looks very nicely made. Looking forward to trying it on. Keep an eye out on Hot Topic for sales.

The Leia dress is not available on at this time, but other pieces from the collection are. Orders from the website on The Force Awakens’ US opening day (December 18th) will get an exclusive BB-8 patch. Check out below for the Her Universe Black Friday offers.


Under Armour Women's Star Wars Alter Ego Shirt

Update on the first Fitness Edition of Fandom Fashion Friday:

Under Armour has added some women’s and girl’s tops to their Star Wars Alter Ego collection. They are not quite as fun or varied as some of the men’s and boy’s designs, but at least they added them fairly soon.

The women’s shirts retail for $34.99 and girls’ for $24.99. Take note that those designs are not set to ship until January 1st. Perhaps they were going to put them out even later and all those of us who expressed our initial disappointment to UA made a difference.

I can’t speak for everyone with lady parts, but I certainly wouldn’t mind a Vader or stormtrooper compression shirt like the men’s currently offered. But you know what could be even better – having a shirt like that for Captain Phasma. Talk about feeling badass while you work out. Hopefully that’s on the Under Armour agenda.
