Once again, “Geek Couture” has invaded San Diego Comic-Con. The epicenter of geek fashion, the 4th annual Her Universe Fashion Show, presented by Her Universe and Hot Topic, debuted 25 stunning fashions inspired by the sci-fi and pop culture world on Thursday, July 20. Only two designers could ultimately win the grand prize – the opportunity to design a fashion collection with Her Universe Founder Ashley Eckstein for Hot Topic. But this year – for the first time ever – the judges declared a tie, and three designers were awarded the grand prize!
Let’s talk Hall-H Lines
For those of you who don’t know, Hall-H is the largest hall at San Diego Comic Con. Within its mighty belly, 6,500 lucky attendees sit in heavenly bliss as they are treated to exclusive trailers and clips. The lines for Hall H are the most demoralizing lines in all of Comic Con. Think waiting three hours to get into an interactive zone is three hours too long? Try camping out over night. Hell, try camping out in line days before your panel even begins. That’s the reality of Hall-H lines. Only the most loyal fans will ever get to see the inside of Hall-H.
I’ve made it in three times and was hoping to add a fourth wristband to my collection but a number of factors worked against me this year.
