You can always count on Hot Topic for a great variety in clothing and accessories. I used to shop there more when I was a teenager, but they still have awesome t-shirts no matter what your age. My husband got me these three t-shirts for Christmas. #GOT

They have super cute Disney and Harry Potter things. I didn't realize how much fun it was to shop there until recently. Hot topic also seems to have the best stock of Funko pops - if there's an HT exclusive they're always on their game. I love HT! Funko Minnie Mouse Pop FigureHot Topic

A friend dragged me into this place. Love it. What can I say...they have nightmare before Christmas stuff! Bracelets, gloves, great t-shirts....like power puff girls, baymax and black bulter. Glasses, masks, and so much more.

Hot Topic was always the store you entered without telling your parents when I was growing up. Now you see young kids with their parents in the store. They have gone too mainstream to keep relevant. Still a good store to shop for pop culture/band tees, some Disney apparel and even some comic stuff.

I love the different types of things Hot Topic! I love how many types of jewelry they have available. Their sizing is very forgiving and they also have plus size for my curvy ladies and gentlemen! Not only is their selection great they always have a huge clearance section, so you can hunt for some deals :)

Hot Topic is definitely not what it used to be 10 years ago when I started getting into my phase for the darker things in life. I really enjoyed Hot Topic in the past because they always had great quality pieces that were staples in my wardrobe. However, in the last few years it has become a pop culture store that sticks to the teenie bopper items that young kids are really into. From time to time I find some really nice clothing items that I can wear to work or out and about, but alas it's sometimes hard to find. Hot Topic's clothing quality has been decreasing in recent years and the prices for it are extremely high. Though if you are like me, you can get some fantastic deals online. If you are into band t-shirts, pop culture items, or into the whole emo/scene phase you will love this store. However, for those of us who have grown apart from it you may be able to find some pieces from time to time. A third of my closet is from here, but I keep finding it more difficult each time I go to find items that suit me and my style.

Oh man, do I love Hottopic. It is my favorite place to go. While some of the people there can be weird (I can be too tbh) the customer service is always excellent and the products are amazing! I just recently got a Defenders T-shirt and it’s my new favorite thing to wear. I love this store so much. ❤️

Hot Topic I love your little a-line dresses! Here I am in one of your older Little Mermaid print dresses. Wish they were a little cheaper, but I just wait for your 30 or 40% off or clearance sales.

Hot Topic used to be an okay place (although one might argue it didn't really fit its own name, due to the fact that most of the 'topics' inside weren't 'hot enough' for everyone else). It certainly isn't much of a store now. Whatever it is that people keep finding so 'alternative' about the place must be entirely invisible to me, because all I ever see when I pass by is Dr. Who, MLP: FiM, Marvel, and other ridiculous nonsense. As for music, well, they don't really sell it there anymore (they do, but it's on a single shelf the size of a hamper, and both sides hold anywhere from 4 to ten pieces of trash each - except one side's trash that shouldn't be on vinyl).

I once asked an employee if they knew where I'd be able to find a series of different bands on the wall (because they don't organise their shirts... and if they do, I'm not aware of the method they use). She said she didn't even know what I was talking about and walked away.

Although I do not shop there anymore, they have some good products. I always bought my band tees there! Most tee shirts are about 25-30 dollars depending on what you purchase. I won't be shopping there any time soon, but it's a nice store. Employees are always respectful and willing to help you.

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