  1. Hot Topic’s Orphan Black Line Lets You Be a Project Leda Clone

    Clone Club just got more hardcore.

    Remember when HotTopic was a goth girl's go-to? (Am I dating myself?) The point is, I've fallen more and more in love with them since they've started to go geek. And tomorrow, they release their Orphan Black clothing line, which lifts them even higher in my esteem! Check out the amazing duds in our photo gallery!

  2. Things We Saw Today: Same Bat Tights; Same Bat Chenille

    Holey Bat-tights?

    OK, so they're not chenille, but these sure are Bat-tights from Hot Topic, and I can't resist a good textile pun. (via Fashion Tips From Comic Strips)

  3. Her Universe’s Rocket Raccoon Top Has Ears and a Tail

    The hoodie does not come with a gun to shoot off the legs of your rival.

    The hoodie-tank is only available through Hot Topic, and I'm going to assume that they've got the Groot one in a pot somewhere, waiting for it to get big enough for retail.

  4. Things We Saw Today: The #SaveStorm Campaign Needs YOU

    Still reeling from the recent loss of Marvel's She-Hulk title, as well as Elektra? It looks like another female-led series might be on the chopping block next—Storm. A social media campaign's been created to champion for Ororo's book; Brett White at Comic Book Resources has more on the subject.

  7. How Much Of Hot Topic’s New Maleficent Clothing Line Would You Wear?

    Get In Loser We're Going Shopping

    I'm not exactly looking forward to Disney's Maleficent, but damn, I would wear the hell out of several of the items in Hot Topic's new Maleficent Fashion Collection, available for pre-order starting today. Other pieces look like they belong in a '90s goth teen movie à la The Craft, which is its own kind of charm.

  8. Hot Topic Pulls FFFUUUUUUU T-Shirts Following Devious 4chan Ploy (Update)

    We've previously covered Hot Topic's Internet-enraging pilfering of the Rage Guy meme, which they sold in t-shirt form while managing to get many details very wrong. But that's all over now. Following a devious 4chan campaign to get Hot Topic to pull the FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUU-spouting "FU Rage Meme T-Shirt" by associating it with racism, the clothing retailer has complied, and says it will stop selling the t-shirts.

    From Hot Topic's Facebook page:

    Rage Guy is the character Hot Topic sells, see the original post from 1 year ago. The character focuses on interesting situations, check out the image gallery. Race Guy is the newest iteration posted this afternoon, today (the character everyone is talking about). Who created Race Guy? We don't know. Who created Rage Guy? We don't know. We sold the shirt because it is pop culture and the series was funny. Why not let our customers express they're interest in meme's? So now what? Well, Hot Topic is the last company to support racism. Hell, we support diversity and wear it proudly. Now that the character represents racism because of these unknown creators - we will no longer be selling it. After tonight (11/17), it will be removed from our website. Next week, it will be removed from our stores.

  10. Hot Topic Now Selling FFFUUUUUUU-Inspired T-Shirts (Update)

    Today in things that may inspire rage: Hot Topic, noted purveyor of "music/pop culture-licensed and music/pop culture-influenced apparel, accessories, music and gift items for young men and women principally between the ages of 12 and 22" [their words], is now selling FFFUUUUUUU-inspired t-shirts. On their site, they bill them as the "FU RAGE MEME T-SHIRT," available for $19, or $21 for double extra large. Who would have thought that someone's MS Paint doodle about being splashed with toilet water would turn into (someone else's) big business?
