Her Universe & Karen Hallion - Intergalactic Women of Star Wars - Leia Organa: Trailblazer
This pin is one of a four pin series, designed as a collaboration between Her Universe and artist Karen Hallion.
- Her Universe was created by Ashley Eckstien (known best as the voice of Ahsoka Tano in the Star Wars Universe) as a “fan girl fashion company and lifestyle brand.”
- Karen Hallion is known for her strong women artwork, especially with her “She Series” where she features a woman (sometimes fictional, sometimes from non-fiction) in profile, standing against a monochromatic rectangle background. A single word to describe that particular woman’s strength is written vertically along the right hand side of the rectangle.
This pin series was designed in the same style as Hallion’s “She Series,” but with a few small adjustments. On the pins, the characters are facing left in a 3/4 profile instead of facing right in full profile as is more common in Hallion’s “She Series”.
This pin series was originally created with the intent of being released on March 8, 2020, a day that is celebrated as International Women’s Day. That is why this series focused on four strong women from different eras of the Star Wars Universe. The characters chosen for these pins include:
- Padmé Amidala: Leader
- Ahsoka Tano: Survivor
- Leia Organa: Trailblazer
- Rey: Independant
Unfortunately, due to the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, the release of these pins was put off until later in the year.
This is the pin featuring Leia Organa against a glittery teal background rectangle. The word “Trailblazer” runs vertically down the right side of the pin. Leia is dressed in the classic white gown with the mock turtleneck and hood that is pulled up over the iconic side buns. This outfit was made famous in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
The back of this pin features the Mickey waffling and two horizontally placed posts. The Official 2020 Pin Trading Logo is in an info box between the two posts. There are three more info boxes listed below this first one. The Star Wars logo is in the box below the OPTL. The Her Universe logo is in the next info box. “Limited Release” and “Disney & Lucasfilms Properties - (C) Disney (C) LFL - Made In China” are in the two bottom info boxes.
Each pin design was delivered with a special surprise, two identical pins! The backer card came perforated down the middle with one pin on either side. The explanation for this 2 identical pin set becomes obvious after reading the saying under each pin. The saying under the left pin reads “Share the Force Keep one pin for yourself, and pay it forward by giving this second symbol of inspiration to someone else.” The saying under the right pin reads “Use the Force You are the chosen one to receive this pin. Always remember, the force is strong with you.”
