Marvel is at it again, this time teaming up with Hot Topic and Her Universe to help the ladies prepare for the US release of Avengers: Age of Ultron by introducing a women’s line inspired by the Avengers! Pre-orders are now available exclusively online at HotTopic.com before the line officially releases May 12th.
Black Widow has both a kickass belted jacket and a hot dress, with Loki and Captain America getting halter dress designs, and Thor following a sailor-themed dress. Not to be outdone, Iron Man gets a Stark Industries Bomber jacket that is a must have for Tony Stark/Iron Man/Robert Downey Jr. fans. The line ranges from $44.50 to $66.50. Hot Topic is also featuring everything Marvel and Avenger’s related; you can check out their full Marvel catalog right here!
The trio is also sponsoring a sweepstakes contest for fans to win the entire collection by following all three on Instagram, posting a picture of your best Marvel outfit to Instagram and using the hashtag #HTAvengersSweeps. You can check out the full details on Hot Topic’s website.
Her Universe is the brainchild of actress Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Julie in That 70’s Show), founded in 2009. With a vision for giving fangirls more options than having to resort to wearing men’s clothing to show support for their favorite sci-fi, comicbook, and movie characters, she teamed up with The Araca Group, a brand management company to make her dream a reality.
In addition to Eckstein and Her Universe, the Marvel line also features designers Amy Beth Christenson and Andrew Maclaine. Christenson hails from Lucasfilm with an extensive background working on several Star Wars titles and is currently a senior concept designer and visual development artist for the upcoming Star Wars: Rebels television series. Maclaine is the head costumer in a cabaret theater and has helped develop a plethora of high fashion clothing with a theatrical edge that has been featured in numerous fashion magazines. He’s also been a semi-finalist on Project Runway for several seasons.
