Just picked up this beautiful palette from hot topic. It's really good quality and the colors are gorgeous. It's less than $20! The shadows blend nicely and the packaging is beautiful. For Disney fans it's a must have!

I love Hot Topic, mostly because of their body jewelry. I order all of my body jewelry from there and they never let me down. Their band tees are amazing and super comfortable. Plus I love seeing all over their cute things. I highly recommend for body jewelry and clothes!!!

I used to LOOOOOOOVE this store. This store was like my holy grail store. The band-t's, the awesome quality skinny pants, the cheaper prices, the merchandise. And then one day, I walked into Hot Topic and literally almost threw up when I looked at the prices they had on EVERYTHING! I loved their skinny jeans so much before, though, so I just sucked it up and splurged. I got a pair of jeans and a little jacket. I was so unhappy after washing these items. The jacket shrunk down to an even smaller size than I wore (and I wear a pretty small size), and the pants were so damn thin, I may as well have stuck with leggings. Not to mention that the black color of the pants got completely ruined on the first wash. Now, don't take me for a fool, I have experienced far too many clothing misfortunes to go about washing my clothes carelessly. I washed both items each on their own, and I hung them both to dry. They were washed in cold water on a gentle, hand-wash cycle. I spent over $100 on two clothing items that didn't even get to make it through the first wash. Meaning that I spent over $100 to literally throw garbage....in my freaking garbage can. After that, I haven't really gotten anything from there again.

This store has so much I'm interested in. I love that I can find some disney things as well as shirts from my favorite tv shows. They have shirts, cups, jewelry, hair accessories. You name it and I'm sure they have it. They are a tad pricey in my opinion though.

I love getting band tees from Hot Topic, but usually in store. They rarely ever have shipping promos online. I also find that their guy shirts fit better than girl's shirts. The girl shirts have really high tight necklines with tight capped sleeves. I suggest if you like the bagginess and fit of a regular T-Shirt, shop in the men's section. The tank tops shrink a lot, which could either work to your benefit or not. I bought a Nirvana shirt in the men's section because I loved the picture on it, but the small was even ginormous. After a few washes it shrunk down to the perfect size. I bought another Nirvana tank top from the girls section and the fit was all messed up. the small was made for someone with D cup boobs and a 4 inch torso. That's exaggerating, but you get what I'm trying to say. the proportions were all messed up. I really liked the picture but I have to wear a sweater over it so you can't see the awkwardly sized bottom of the shirt, while tying up the straps so my chest won't be out for the world to see. Other tun that The guys T-shirts I love and they are great quality.

I loved Hot Topic in middle school and now as an adult, I still regularly shop there. Since I've grown up, I have to do a bit more searching to find something that suits me. They usually have pretty dresses that aren't too middle school-ish, which is what I mostly buy from them now. They also have lots of vinyl, some are Hot Topic exclusives. They used to sell pretty cute lingerie, but now it's mostly boy shorts with cartoon characters on it. For cute lingerie I search on their other site, Blackheart Lingerie, which also has clothing for people my age. I also love Hot Topic's "hot cash" promotion they do, for every $30 you spend, get $15 to spend at a later date.
Their stuff is mostly pop culture/cartoon/really bad band-oriented now, but if you look you can find some really cute stuff!

Hot Topic is definitely the place to go if you want something with your favorite band. The layout tho is kind of creepy tbh. Not a bad store it's just not my type of store. Don't get me wrong, the store is rocks it's just creepy in a way

Love this store. It have really cute stuff and I go in a lot but the clothes and little things can be expensive so I don't always walk out with a bag. If the price was lower that would be great. It's a good place to go for band tees and Disney stuff too.

This store is amazing! They have trendy things there all the time and always update what they've got. They have a lot of discounts often and perks when you sign up with email and stuff. But things there do tend to cost a bit more than I'd like to pay, so I only go once in a while. They always have good jewelry that lasts longer than you'd think. I picked up a necklace there last year for about 12 dollars that wasn't on sale. Their shirts are high quality and most of them range from 20-30 dollars each. Their jeans are just flat out amazing! I cannot live without their daring pants and skirts, but they get up to 50 dollars each... So sometimes I have to skip out on buying new bottoms from there. If I have a lot of money, I know where I'd blow it on for sure though haha.

I use to shop here all the time. I only really buy jeans from here any more cause it's so hard to find my size. But it's super cute and I love all the Pokémon stuff!

Does anyone else wished that hot topic was easier to walk through? It's always so small and crowded.
