Thursday Threads - Her Universe Fashion Show 2016

The third annual HER UNIVERSE FASHION SHOW took place Thursday, July 21, at San Diego Comic-Con. Host and Her Universe founder Ashley Eckstein wore an original “little block dress” made of LEGO® and designed by 2014 Audience Award winner Andrew MacLaine and brick artist Nathan Sawaya.
27 designers competed with haute couture designs inspired by pop culture stalwarts such as Star Wars, DC, Marvel, Harry Potter, Mad Max: Fury Road, Game of Thrones, Pokémon, Doctor Who, Sailor Moon, Labyrinth, Supernatural, 28 Days Later, Wall-E and Red Dragon / Silence of the Lambs.
The finale of THE HER UNIVERSE FASHION SHOW docuseries, which was filmed last night, will be available on Comic-Con HQ on Thursday, July 28. That same day, voting will open on to allow viewers at home to choose a third winner for the series. Comic-Con HQ is available at, on iOS and Android devices, Amazon and Roku.
Fast Facts about Ashley’s dress: with a design inspired by a sketch of Star Wars: The Clone Wars character Ahsoka Tano created by Dave Filoni, the dress was made of more than 10,000 bricks and weighed in at 25 pounds!

It's back again and I'm so excited! I wait all year for this wonderful event! Last year there was almost no information to be had and hardly a picture to be seen! Not this year! This year is extra special! 
This year all the pictures are there and waiting, because this year, they want YOU to help pick the 3rd winner! That's right, you get to vote on your favorite designs!
Below you find the dress, the design sketch and a picture of what it's based on.
