I don't shop at Hot topic nearly as much as I used to. I loved shopping there in high school, and was fortunate enough to have a mom who thought skull and crossbone prints were adorable LOL. Anyways, they still have great Band Tees, body jewelry and cute dresses. But, some of their stuff seems a little tweeny for me. Oh well, I guess I grew up?

Great place for band tees and body jewelry. I like to go here to get merchandise for new Marvel movies that come out and Harry Potter merchandise and nose rings. They usually always have deals going on which helps get things cheaper.

I will always love Hot Topic, no matter what age! They have the best selection of band tees for every metal fan, especially this one! I really dig the corsets that they have and appreciate the costume wardrobe too! This is a dream land for this goth girl! They have the coolest little trinkets and accessories too! Win!

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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