Ashley Eckstein Cosplays Ahsoka Tano

The voice of Ahsoka Tano on Star Wars: The Clone Wars actually dresses up as her character for fun and frolick.

Ashley Eckstein as Ahsoka Tano

Here's a fun bit of whimsy: Ashley Eckstein, the geek-chic magnate of Her Universe and the voice of padawan learner Ahsoka Tano on Star Wars: The Clone Wars came out of the cosplay closet by gussying up as her own character.

“As the voice of Ahsoka, I simply go into the recording studio and record my lines for the show,” she said. “There is no need to ever dress up as the character because they only need our voices to bring the character to life. However, I am also a fan, and year after year I have been going to conventions seeing hundreds of girls dressed up as Ahsoka, secretly wishing I, too, could someday try on the costume. Well, with the help of my friends, my wish was granted, and I got to dress up as Ahsoka for the day!”
