Her Universe to Add a Line of ‘Star Trek’ Tees, Too!

- 06-28-12Cool Stuff, TV Posted by Sarah Moran

While some nerds hold to the rule that you’re either a Star Wars or a Star Trek fan, most modern geeks have come to accept they can like both series, equally, without any crisis of conscious. And now,  Her Universe – originally a Star Wars-only clothing line started by Clone Wars actress, Ashley Eckstein – is adding Star Trek to their label.

Earlier this week we reported Her Universe was expanding to add Doctor Who apparel and today we learned the female-friendly, geeky clothing line is adding new Star Trek apparel starting July 11th. And as excited as I was about the addition of Who stuff, I’m super-excited for their Trek line. What can I say, I was raised on Trek long before I saw my first episode of Doctor Who.

Above is a tee inspired by Lt. Uhura’s classic red outfit, and while I love the design I try to make it a policy to avoid red shirts. I’ll be sure to grab one when they come out with a science blue or command gold design.

This t-shirt features The Next Generation’s opening speech emblazoned on the Enterprise. There’s no better way to celebrate TNG‘s 25th anniversary.

All right, all you Wesley Crusher fans, this one’s for you,

Looking for a cool polo with just a touch of Star Trek class? Then this shirt’s for you. Having Spock’s LLAP (Live Long and – do I need to spell it out?) instead of some silly alligator will earn +15 awesome nerd points,

And lastly, what’s easily my favorite tee of the bunch, I GROK SPOCK,

All these Star Trek tees – and the Doctor Who ones, too – are available on July 11th. Jump to Her Universe to order. Which ones will you be sure to get for yourself? And fellas, these would make great gifts for that geeky girl in your life. Hint. Hint.

New ‘Doctor Who’ Apparel Coming Exclusively to Her Universe

- 06-26-12TV Posted by Sarah Moran

Ashley Eckstein‘s geek and girl friendly clothing line, Her Universe, has been a huge hit. Being a girl whose favorite attire is a good, nerdy tee I can tell you what a hassle it can be tracking down t-shirts that fit right. Often the really great geek t-shirts are only available in men’s, and rarely do they provide ample bosom room and a smaller waist to flatter your figure.

That’s where Eckstein got her inspiration, why can’t there be geeky tees made with a girl’s body in mind. Ta-Da! Her Universe was born, originally as a line of Star Wars apparel for the ladies it has since branched out to include Battlestar Galactica and is now introducing – wait for it – an official Doctor Who line!

The first wares become available July 11th, but take a look at what they’ll be offering. There’s even an official Doctor Who for Her Universe logo created just for them!

The t-shirt above is Amy’s speech that preceded almost every episode of the fifth season of Doctor Who, inside the Who logo. Here’s one in honor of Ms. Doctor herself, River Song,

One of Van Gogh’s exploding TARDIS painting,

And, of course, that something blue you need,

I also really appreciate Her Universe changes things up and puts the design on a lower corner rather than right on the middle of the chest. I have a few t-shirts not designed for the busty among us and a design smack in the middle can be easily distorted by bewbz. All in all, they’ve got great stuff!

Check out Her Universe for more on the upcoming Doctor Who line as well as all other fabulous, geeky apparel they’ve got to offer.

The Force Is with This Shoe Commercial

Don't kill me for using this image, George Lucas.

Don't kill me for using this image, George Lucas.

In November, we brought you news that adidas and Star Wars were teaming up for a line of Force-inspired clothing and shoes. Today, you can experience the power of the dark side. Um, I mean the commercial.

adidas (I HATE lowercasing adidas. It feels so wrong.) is scheduled to launch its adidas Originals Star Wars line this spring, and though we’ve already seen images of the sneakers and apparel, I think this is the first time we’ve gotten a commercial.

The video is filled with cameos galore, from Daft Punk to David Beckham. Why? They apparently “live in the neighborhood,” where “originality comes to life as artists, athletes, and celebs celebrate their style.” I wish I could be the girl who got paid to write that.

From the Star Wars site:

The most iconic moments and beloved figures from the Star Wars saga are translated to the streets, telling their creative story across a forceful collection of adidas Originals footwear and apparel.

Celebrate this powerful alliance to the beat of a new and improved remix of the Imperial March, as Vader and the stormtroopers land on our street corner greeted by Snoop Dogg, David Beckham, Calle 13, DJ Neil Armstrong and Daft Punk representing their originality. No matter which side of the Force you’re on, believe the hype, this year is going to be massive.

Weird, no? Still, the commercial is entertaining, if not unsettling. There’s even a point where the swing of a baseball bat sounds like a lightsaber — which I’ve always thought was appropriate. Take a look:
