One of a Kind Ahsoka Tano Dress Made with 10,000 LEGO Bricks

Her Universe already specializes in feminine fandom fashion, but for the last three years at San Diego Comic-Con the company has been pushing themselves to find the next great designer for their unique and much-needed aesthetic. The Her Universe Fashion Show brings in designers from all across the nerdiverse to show off their latest creations in the hopes of winning a chance to design for the company and its partners.

Last night, company founder Ashley Eckstein almost stole the show before it began. To kick off the night, Eckstein, the voice of Ahsoka Tano in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, debuted a custom LEGO brick Tano dress. It’s the first real example of LEGO couture.

Made by world-famous brick artist Nathan Sawaya and designer Andrew Maclaine, Eckstein’s dress shows off a fan drawing of Tano recreated with over 10,000 LEGO brick. It weighed close to 25 pounds.

Eckstein’s hair also mimicked Tano’s famous tentacles.

While Eckstein’s amazing dress was certainly a highlight, the judge’s favorite from the 27 designers that walked the catwalk that night was Hannah Kent’s lovely Furiosa gown in the style of Mad Max: Fury Road.

What do you think? Have you ever seen a LEGO dress cooler than this (you haven’t), what other fandom deserves a LEGO dress treatment? Let us know in the comments below.
