Today (June 6, 2015) a group of incredible women around the country assembled to create one incredible event!
#WeWantWidow was born out of a desire to see more Black Widow merchandise from Avengers: Age of Ultron. Marvel, Disney and all other affiliate companies left fans with an appalling lack of gear inspired by the beautiful and deadly Natasha Romanoff (and Scarlet Witch for that matter). As a way of fighting back, these women coordinated flash mobs in locations around the world and unleashed a viral social media campaign that would raise attention to this important matter! Check out the full story, at Riellygeek.com
We at Fashionably Nerdy, wholeheartedly support the movement and are crossing our collective fingers and toes that we see more officially licensed merchandise in the very near future.
In the meantime, if you were wondering Where’s Natasha (#WheresNatasha), as so many others, we thought we might help by pointing you in the direction of these awesome companies that are getting it right, and supplying fans with the Black Widow fashions that they are craving. Cheers to each of you for leading the revolution. These clothes seriously kick butt!
- Her Universe: Ashley Eckstein sort of started a female fashion revolution just by launching her geek clothing lines geared towards females. She isn’t stopping anytime soon! She is constantly releasing new designs from new fandoms and we have been seeing Black Widow merchandise from Her Universe for quite some time now.
- We Love Fine: We know we already told you about the We Love Fine: Age of Fashion line, but we just really want to point out what a great job this company is doing with their Black Widow inspired apparel. Not only do they have a killer Black Widow Top in their Age of Fashion Line, they have a ton of other Natasha inspired looks just waiting to be worn. You can find all of We Love Fine’s Black Widow designs here, but we wanted to show you a few of our favorites!
- Hot Topic: While the fantastic designs that were released from the joint Hot Topic/Her Universe lines have already sold out (we are desperately hoping for a re-release) we still thought it prudent to mention them. Especially because the designers (winners of the Her Universe Fashion Show at San Diego Comic-Con 2015) did such a fantastic job. They truly captured the spirit of Natasha Romanoff in their works and we adore every one of them.
