As far as I'm concerned, one of the can't miss panels of Comic-Con this year is Her Universe's Geek Girl Trendsetter panel on Saturday night. Ashley Eckstein has moderated fun, engaging panels at SDCC the last couple of years, and I bet it won't be any different this time around. The focus is on geek chic attire; yeah, it's pretty fitting that her company specializes in sci-fi themed fashion for the ladies. Panelists will include designers, stylish geek girls, and a buyer and the social media manager at Hot Topic. Catherine Taber (the voice of Padme Amidala in Star Wars: The Clone Wars) will co-host the panel with Ashley. Attendees are encouraged to dress to show off their style:
6:00-7:00 Are You a Geek Girl Trendsetter? Show Off Your Style to the Fashion Experts and Win Prizes!— Inspired by the NBC television show Fashion Star, Her Universe founder Ashley Eckstein (voice of Ahsoka Tano from Star Wars: The Clone Wars) wants to give geek girl trendsetters the opportunity to show their unique style and original designs to the experts! Comic-Con is full of geek girls who create, design, and construct their own fashions, and what better way to get feedback than to show your trendsetting creations to this panel of fashion professionals. Girls are asked to attend in their own custom-made everyday geek/sci-fi inspired outfits and accessories. A select number of girls in the audience will be chosen for a chance to present their look in front of the panel to get their feedback and advice. Each panelist will choose one girl who truly impressed them with their overall design and flair, and those girls will receive a special prize. The panel is made up of fashion buyers, designers, stylists, and actresses from the sci-fi world who will also give their advice on how to create your own geek style and look. MTV Geek will be filming the panel for their Comic-Con coverage. Room 25ABCI definitely enjoy wearing geeky t-shirts and jeans, but I also like dressing it up. I recently purchased a red dress to go with my black and red leather Darth Maul belt. I try to think of fun ways to work my nerdy attire into outfits for every occasion. I'm not sure what I'll be wearing to this panel yet - possibly my new R2-D2 skirt. I mostly want to see what everyone else wears and how they put it together. I plan to take several photos!
