Fangirls Around the Web is a post series that spotlights amazing fangirls and their heroines around the web.
June 22nd marks FIVE years for our favorite fangirl fashion company, Her Universe. It’s been a privilege to work with Ashley Eckstein through the Year of the Fangirl initiative, which is still running over two years since it started. Even Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy is wearing Her Universe, sporting the Lightsaber Star Wars Logo t-shirt during The Force Awakens panel at Celebration Anaheim. To celebrate their milestone, Her Universe is celebrating all day Monday, June 22. From the company’s blog:
1) Every order placed on June 22nd at Heruniverse.com will receive a FREE gift (randomly inserted in a purple envelope with their order and personally autographed by Ashley) of $5 up to $500! Will YOU be the lucky one to win $500?
2) We’re re-releasing three of our original and most popular Star Wars pieces launched years ago for all of you who might have missed out on these Force-ful fashions! You will be able to find them here on the 22nd.
3) We’re throwing a 5th anniversary party on June 22nd at the Her Universe offices with live stream segments all day via the social media app Meerkat.

The April 2015 episode of Fangirls Going Rogue is now posted at RebelForce Radio. We welcome Ashley Eckstein, the voice of Ahsoka Tano, to the show to talk about Celebration.
Inevitably the discussion turns to cupcakes – there will be specialty cupcakes for purchase at the Her Universe booth #934 – and Star Wars merchandise. After you listen to the episode, check out the preview of the geek chic that will be available at Celebration and online. For Marvel fans, here’s Lisa Granshaw’s article over at Daily Dot that previews the Her Universe/Hot Topic rockabilly-inspired line designed by the SDCC Fashion Show winners Andrew MacLaine and Amy Beth Christenson. (Christenson should be a familiar name for Star Wars Rebels fans.)
Tricia Barr, Teresa Delgado, and Sarah Woloski discuss upcoming festivities and appearances at Celebration Anaheim. Fangirls Going Rogue will be appearing at the Podcaster Meet-up Thursday at 6:30 PM in the Hilton Lobby and also the Podcast Stage Saturday at 3:00 PM. Tricia Barr will also be hosting From A Certain Point of View: A Diversity of Opinions in Star Wars on Sunday at 10:30 AM.
We are open to any and all opportunities to #fangirlflail at the convention. If you have ideas of where, when, or how to showcase the legions of fangirls and their supporters, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, tweet it, or share a thought on our Facebook page.
