elhoffer captain america

Like most of us, fashion designer Catherine Elhoffer is excited for Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War. How do I know? Check out this collection of designs inspired by her favorite characters.

Each dress captures elements of what makes each character unique. I think they’re all gorgeous, but that Witching Tunic is frickin’ amazing and I want, no, need it.

We’ve been teasing the Her Universe Star Wars: The Force Awakens Collection for awhile now…but today is the day.

Reveal day.

The day you can actually own this stuff.

The entire collection is live at Hot Topic, and it includes that awesome Phasma jacket and leggings, a Finn jacket, a Rey cardigan, and a series of dresses based on Poe, Kylo Ren, Stormtroopers and BB-8.

hooded dress

With this gorgeous hooded dress by rosemortem on Etsy, your entrance to any room might make you feel like a queen…or maybe a mysterious Red Woman with some serious secrets.

The Calista Hooded Dress drapes perfectly along the natural curves due to its exquisitely feminine bias cut; the neckline rests in a gentle V. The sleeves are fitted comfortably to the wrist, where the sleeves finish in pointed cuffs. The stunning train is the perfect accent to the elegantly draping hood, beautiful worn both up or down. And the fabric…though the design is available in solid stretch velvets as well, the crimson scrolling vines fabric shown makes this gown a glimmering vision of faerieworld magic.

Whether you’re out at the Renaissance faire or heading to a Game of Thrones-themed party, this dress will fit the occasion. 

Take a closer look below.

sailor moon elhoffer

Another day, another dress by Elhoffer Design that I love. Seriously, I don’t where this woman finds the time to execute all of these awesome ideas. Not that I’m complaining. Drooling, yes. Complaining, no.

This new Sailor Moon-inspired design was a commission for client (speaking of which, Catherine says she has a few spots open if you’d like a custom dress) and the bow is removable for washing.

Love.

I have some good news for you Elhoffer Design fans. Catherine has added two new Star Wars-themed dresses to her Etsy store. The Galactic Scavenger and the Galactic Fighter are slightly different than the custom designs, but they’re more affordable and just as cute. You can also get the Galactic Scavenger dress in black or gray.

She also dropped a very cool Trek-inspired dress on her Instagram. I’m pretty sure it’s going to be popular.

Take a closer look in the pics below.

her universe TFA styles

As SDCC inches closer (I’m not ready, are you?) Her Universe is having a good time teasing new clothes and planning for the Her Universe Fashion Show. For example, the image above shows off the upcoming Phasma jacket and leggings and the BB-8 / Kylo Ren dresses that will debut soon at Hot Topic.

If you’re in the Los Angeles area, the open call for prospective designers for this year’s Her Universe Fashion Show at San Diego Comic-Con 2016 is this Saturday, April 23rd at 1pm. Just bring your sketches/designs, portfolio and examples of previous work.

If you’re not a designer, you can still be a part of the fun. The Comic-Con HQ channel will be filming for the new series about The Her Universe Fashion Show and you’ll be among the first to see and purchase the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens collection designed by last year’s fashion show winners Kelly Cercone and Leetal Platt.

You can get more information on the event page on Facebook.
