Top-of-the-line issues about this present is the truth that it celebrates all fandoms regardless of how large, small, or fully random. One other film duo the 2 co-hosts took inspiration from was Romy and Michele from the cult basic Romy and Michele’s Excessive College Reunion. Not solely had been their outfits on level, however they even added a few of the iconic dance strikes.

Fans were able to see a wide range of designs inspired by popular movies and TV shows. Including Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean, CW’s 100, Scream, Doctor Strange, Spiderman, a wide range of Disney hits, a few from Studio Ghibli, and even a look inspired by hit band BTS. Every outfit looked amazing and did the inspiration justice. Here are just a few of my favorite looks, that did not win.
The second outfit to hit the runway was designed by Liz Todd, who goes by @ambrose_cosplay on Instagram. This outfit instantly caught my attention because of the green and gold coloring. It was already a must-have situation because it also gave off this little vintage vibe with the big coat. But when the coat came off and revealed a nicely tailored vest and pants, I wanted to swoon. Who knew that a design based on Perry from Phineas and Ferb could back such a jaw-dropping moment. Especially since the design was titled, “Perry the Platypus?!”
One of the things that Her Universe has thrived at is finding a way to represent your favorite fandom, while still looking fashionable. And the designer of this piece understood that balance perfectly. Lauren Wilkinson, @electricseafoam on Instagram, was inspired by the hit Magna and show series, My Hero Academia. While I’ve never seen the show, this design had me double guessing that decision. Especially with the amazing feather sleeves that went well with the color blocking. It makes sense why the name of this design is “Fierce Wings.”
Who doesn’t love outfit change center runway? Perhaps I’m barely biased as a result of this design is predicated on one in all my favourite films, The Lizzie McGuire Film. This look titled “What Seams are Made of” and designed by Leah Foley (@spinnerscourtdesign) would have stolen hearts with simply the purple outfit. However including the short change to the inexperienced, has us screaming “hey now, hey now!”
However this wasn’t the one outfit change that I fell in love with through the present. “Down the Rabbit Hole” was designed by Kimberly Burns (@kberry723) and reveals off a reversible coat. In addition to a colourful 3-piece outfit that included a long-sleeve shirt that resembled the Cheshire Cat’s purple stripes and a checkered print decked out with card fits and Daisies. For me, it was the outfit beneath the coat that had me smiling an enormous grin.
Fashion is all about being bold and making a statement, but it also can be about the beauty of simplicity. Designer Paige Campbell (@quasar_creations) did a fantastic job with her creation, “From Another Dimension.” Inspired by Into the Spiderverse, this dress is an elegant, ballerina combination of black and colorful details. Especially if you look at the bottom of her dress where it is embroidered in neon skyscrapers. Wearing this dress would make anyone feel like a spider queen.
There are so many amazing designs, and these are just a few of our favorites. I guess that’s why we aren’t judges. Because in this situation, everyone would be a winner. Check out all the amazing designers, their social media accounts, and the artistic inspiration behind the dresses right here.
Ending the evening on a excessive, the dazzling co-hosting duo got here out in a brand new outfit impressed by Captain Marvel to announce the winners. Taking the title of Judges winner was Cindy Guillermo Heselton who was impressed by the latest hit film, Pixar’s Turning Pink’s Mei. Which included a sling bag styled like a Tamagotchi that learn her Instagram identify, sinnanoms.
She called her design “Caged” and broke down the reason behind it on her Instagram post. “Of being contained by expectation and spilling out of that ‘cage’. Holding back and coping with the fear of disappointment.” And what is fashion for, if not using a creative means to express our truest and deepest selves?

The second winner was designer Michael Burson (@thewizardtailor) who took home the title of Audience winner. There was some stiff competition when it came to coats and capes this season, but this design based on Doctor Strange left the crowd bewitched. And it isn’t just the cape that will leave you feeling mesmerized The buttoned, sloped pleated jacket is beautifully executed.
Both designers did an amazing job and deserve every bit of praise they are getting. As well as fans, including myself, can’t wait to see what their creative minds will come up with next year for the release of Marvel’s Universe, The Marvels.

While the jacked has yet to be released, some of the other items are now available for purchase through Her Universe and Hot Topic.
But one of the biggest announcements was the fact that Her Universe and Hot Topic are taking over the world, starting with Japan. For the first time, opening on August 10th fans will be able to enjoy a global Studio Ghibli Harajuku Collective Collection in Japan.
