She's the Princess Leia to your Han Solo, your cosplay confidante, and the best friend you share all-day Doctor Who marathons with - she totally gets your geeky side. So, what do you give the fangirl who's the love of your life or if YOU are a Geek Girl looking for a gift for yourself? Her Universe has the perfect Valentine's Day present for the fangirl who is both nerdy and stylish. Ashley Eckstein, the voice of Ahsoka Tano on Star Wars: The Clone Wars and founder of the sci-fi apparel line, Her Universe, revealed today three new quote tees featuring insider sayings from Star Wars, Doctor Who and Star Trek such as:
Star Wars - You Are The Scoundrel To My Princess / You Are The Clone To My Trooper / You Are The Wookiee To My Win Doctor Who - You Are The Bow Tie To My Suspenders / You Are The Key To My TARDIS / You Are The Doctor To My Companion Star Trek - You Are The Logic To My Vulcan / You Are The Purrr To My Tribble / You Are The Captain To My Starship
"I've been seeing these types of posters everywhere! 'You Are The Macaroni To My Cheese,' 'You Are The Peanut Butter To My Jelly,'" said Eckstein. "I love them and I wanted to make sci-fi versions in time for Valentine's Day! It's never been so sweet to give the gift of nerd!"
For the quote Tees Eckstein has worked with fellow fangirl, Anne Convery, as a guest designer. Convery is a self described "suburban nerd," graduate student and wife of Star Wars: The Clone Wars Supervising Director Dave Filoni. "I had a blast playing with the iconography," said Convery. "For example, Doctor Who has such a rich universe for us all to play in. When Ashley and I brainstormed the 'You are the __ to My __' shirt, it really brought home to me just how key the relationships are in Doctor Who."
"When I think of the iconic Geek Girl, I think of Anne," said Eckstein. "She is such an inspiration to me. I have been picking Anne's brain on designs for a few years now and it's about time that we collaborated on something for Her Universe!"
The Star Wars, Doctor Who and Star Trek Quote Tees are available to order now at www.heruniverse.com. Make sure to order no later than February 6th to guarantee delivery by February 14th, Valentine's Day.
