Our friends over at Holobrick Archives take a look at a fashionable LEGO crossover, featuring a lady very much in our thoughts this week; Ashley Eckstein, the voice of the animated Ahsoka Tano, who wore this stunning LEGO dress at the third annual Her Universe Fashion Show at San Diego Comic-Con in 2016.

While the full story of the gown’s genesis is lost in time, the October 26th, 2016 episode of The Star Wars Show records that it was Eckstein who originally came with the idea of making a wearable gown. The tale began in 2015 when Eckstein’s eye was caught by the Wonder Woman dress sculpture that was part of The Art of the Brick: DC Comics exhibition that toured the world in 2015.

Noting that sculptor Nathan Sawaya, who famously brought the world a brick-built, lifesize Han Solo in Carbonite sculpture, already had prior experience in turning strong female characters into LEGO when he created a series of DC Comics superheroes built out of LEGO bricks for their San Diego Comic-Con exhibit, Eckstein approached the Los Angeles-based brick artist for his input.
