Ashley Eckstein, the voice of Ahsoka Tano in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the creator of Her Universe, attended the re-opening of entertainment media store F.Y.E. (For Your Entertainment) at the Woodbridge Center Mall in New Jersey this past weekend. To kick things off, Ashley helped judge an in-store Cosplay Contest, where a variety of contestants demonstrated their cosplaying talents. Ashley herself appeared in the beautifully designed Darth Vader Japanese dress.
Since I live in New York City, I hopped on a New Jersey transit train and made my way over to support. There, I met up with fellow fangirl Megan Crouse of Blog Full of Words. We had a spectacular time, and following the event, Megan and I talked with Ashley about all things fandom and Her Universe. I also had the opportunity to pass on my Ahsoka Tano Tooka doll, which I created to celebrate the six year anniversary of the 2008 feature film Star Wars: The Clone Wars!
If you live in the New Jersey area, visit F.Y.E. to check out the Her Universe section. There, you’ll find a mixture of Doctor Who, The Walking Dead, and Star Wars items!

Also, please nominate a fellow fangirl (or yourself) in Her Universe’s Year of the Fangirl initiative!
