spidey tank 1

Put on Spider-Man’s iconic red and blue suit without slipping into spandex thanks to this new design from Her Universe. This is the latest look in the company’s Marvel line, and I have to say that I’m a fan of the hooded tank. The hood even looks like Spidey’s mask! This is a much better option than getting bitten by a radioactive spider.

See more pics of the web-slinging hooded tank* after the break.

storm hoodie

Storm is one of the coolest X-Men. She can control the weather, she’s smart and capable, and she’s got a wonderful sense of style. This pullover shirt from Her Universe and ThinkGeek captures all of those aspects because it looks cool and the front and side of the shirt feature glow-in-the-dark lightning. Storm rules.

Check out more photos of the sweatshirt after the break.

It comes in sizes S to 3X and is in stock now at ThinkGeek.

gamora and nebula tee

Two characters have been notably absent from most of the Guardians of the Galaxy merchandise: Gamora and Nebula. Stores like The Children’s Place state that shirts made for boys won’t feature the sisters because they’re girls. Happily, we have Her Universe to fill the void. This shirt will be available soon – likely premiering at New York Comic Con next weekend.

Her Universe has brought a delightful collection of Studio Ghibli tees to Hot Topic. Ashley Eckstein announced the partnership at the Her Universe Fashion Show during San Diego Comic-Con, and the first wave of t-shirts includes styles inspired by Kiki’s Delivery Service and My Neighbor Totoro. Many of the tees feature fun text, and I’m already looking forward to seeing more designs.

Her Universe seems determined to get you right in the feels with this new Doctor Who tank top. It’s called Goodbye Raggedy Man and I now have to go find a tissue ’cause there’s something in my eye.

The Ninth Doctor wasn’t around for long, but he’s still got a place in our hearts. This dress is a subtle tribute to him that only the most die-hard Whovians will recognize. It’s a 95/5 cotton/spandex blend that will make you look like a Time Lord.

exploding tardis a line

Doctor Who has brought a lot of iconic images into our lives, but few have been reproduced more than this painting from the episode “Vincent And The Doctor”.

Just when you thought you saw it all, Van Gogh’s Exploding TARDIS painting takes a new form in this adorable A-line Dress from Her Universe.

HU fashion show 12

Her Universe brought geeky haute couture to San Diego Comic-Con last night with its first ever fashion show. Hosted at a room in the Hyatt by Her Universe, Hot Topic, and Nerdist, the event showcased work from both amateur and professional designers and took a moment to show off new items in the Her Universe collection – including a peek at apparel from their Studio Ghibli partnership.

The designers entered a contest online with a chance to participate in the fashion show and win the opportunity to work with Her Universe and Hot Topic to design a line of geek chic apparel. There were 36 designers, and they didn’t kid around. There were dresses and ensembles based on characters such as Marty McFly, Doctor Doom, Death, Kara Thrace, Loki, and so many more. Some outfits incorporated LEDs and impressive transformations, and more than a few of them included dangerous looking high heels. I was floored by the creativity on display.

There were a dazzling array of haute couture designs, and it was lovely to see geek apparel get fashion week treatment. I’ve never been to a show like this, but the runway and sea of blinking flashes from cameras looked just like what I’ve seen on television. I think these designs were much cooler than most (with the possible exception of the Rodarte Star Wars dresses).

The Evil Queen and Marty McFly took home top prizes. Designer Andrew MacLaine created a look based on Regina Mills from Once Upon a Time. The dress changed from an everyday look to a stunning black ensemble. The transformation made the crowd go wild. Amy Beth Christenson came up with a rocking design that captured the essence of Back to the Future; it looked futuristic and awesome – the crowd oohed and aahed when the ensemble made its entrance onto the runway.

See several hot looks from the runway after the break.
