Hi Everyone! Thank you so much for all of your kind words and support. The outpouring of encouragement and excitement has been truly incredible and you have confirmed (even though I already knew this :o) that Star Wars fans are some of the best fans around!
I have been reading all of your comments over the past week and I want to use this opportunity to answer some of your questions.
1.) What are the sizes for our shirts, is this more of a junior line, and will be offering plus sizes? For out first line, we will be offering our shirts and sweatshirts in sizes XS-XXL. While every garment is a little bit different, this is not a juniors line, and most shirts fit pretty true to size. I will have sizing notes on our website for each garment to assist you in your choice. Our shirts also have a good bit of stretch in them and are very soft and comfortable. While we do not have sizes for the younglings, yet, our XS’s should fit our young Padawans just fine. As I have said in some of my other posts, every woman’s body is beautiful, and we want merchandise to flatter our figures, no matter our shape or size. We are currently seeking out garments in plus sizes because our goal for Her Universe is to provide ALL of our female fans with merchandise. I will keep you updated on our progress.
2.) Can you buy Her Universe merchandise if you live outside of the US? Yes, you will be able to buy our merchandise on our website www.heruniverse.com. Our online store will be opening soon and we will be able to ship our merchandise to our international customers. However, we are only scheduled to attend US conventions in 2010. We have not finalized our 2011 convention schedule, but we will keep you updated if we set any international convention dates.
3.) What kind of jewelry can you expect from Her Universe? We will be offering two pendant necklaces in our first collection and they will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back. The goal of our jewelry line is to provide you with everyday jewelry but also with replica pieces. We hope to recreate jewelry from the Movies and TV show with a slight Her Universe twist. Of all of the jewelry from Star Wars, what piece would you like to see us recreate first?
4.) Cosmetics and Lightsaber Lipgloss ?????? When I first started dreaming of creating this line a couple of years ago, one of the first ideas I had was to create a tube of lipgloss that looked like a lightsaber. Now that we have launched Her Universe I am definitely going to make that happen. However, I don’t have a time table, yet, for when it will be available. We hope to have it ready for sale in 2011. I also intend to follow-up it up with other creative pieces inspired by Star Wars. I will keep you updated :o)
5.) What conventions will we be attending in 2010? As we mention on our website, our first convention will be San Diego Comic-Con. We will also be attending Celebration V, Dragon-Con, Chicago Comic-Con and New York Comic-Con. Look for our Her Universe booth to begin your shopping experience! I will be at all of the conventions and I look forward to meeting everyone and signing autographs. While we are not set to sell our product at Disney’s Star Wars Weekends, I will be there the entire month hosting The Clone Wars: Behind The Force show, and I will be wearing our shirts to give you a sneak peek.
6.) How much will our t-shirts cost? I hold quality to the highest standard. I will not put a product out on the market if I wouldn’t personally use it or wear it myself. That being said, we are hard at work trying to offer you quality merchandise at affordable prices. Some of our prices are still being set, but we are trying to make our prices competitive with the other vendors. Look for our t-shirts to be in the $30-$35 range.
