'Star Wars' voice actress wears dress made of Legos to San Diego ComicCon


It's hard enough to get Legos to stay together when building normally.

But imagine trying to get them to stick together and wear them as a dress!

Can you say "Krazy Glue" (or "kragle" for fans of "The Lego Movie")?

Ashley Eckstein is the voice of the "Star Wars" character Ahsoka Tano. For those who don't follow the saga closely, she was Anakin Skywalker's padawan before he turned to the Dark Side.

Eckstein also has a clothing line called Her Universe, a line of geek-wear for women.

Thursday night, she sported a creation that fit her perfectly - a gown, made entirely of Legos that featured a larger than life image of her alter-ego, Ahsoka. Eckstien's hair was braided and colored to mimic her character.

The dress was made by Nathan Sawaya, who is a Lego artist, and fashion designer Andrew Maclaine, who sewed 10,000 bricks to a dress, Gizmodo reported
