The force is strong — and stylish! Stars Wars Rebels voice actress Ashley Eckstein unveiled the world’s first couture gown made entirely out of Legos (and inspired by the intergalactic series), at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, July 21.
Eckstein, 34, who voices a heroic Jedi named Ahsoka Tano in the popular animated series, teamed up with world-renowned Lego artist Nathan Sawaya for the floor-length creation. He made her a sleeveless Star Wars–inspired sheath dress, a twist on the little black dress, crafted from 10,000 Lego bricks and featuring the face of her character in profile.
Naturally, Eckstein herself debuted the dress for the third annual Her Universe Fashion Show. She wore the colorful number down the runway with her blonde hair styled into three blue-striped French braids Leia would envy.
The actress launched the fashion show in 2014 to spotlight fangirl culture and support aspiring designers. Twenty-seven fashion fanatics competed in this year’s “geek couture” presentation for the chance to design a collection with the Her Universe label, which is sold at Hot Topic.
San Diego Comic-Con kicked off its four-day run on July 21. Not only did Eckstein get her style on, but a slew of other stars hit the San Diego Convention Center to promote the latest in comic-book culture. Gal Gadot was on the scene to premiere the first Wonder Woman trailer, while Brie Larson (with fresh red locks) was revealed to be the new Captain Marvel.
