Disney has a long history of taking its princess characters and turning them into merchandising juggernauts the likes of which the world has never seen (since Star Wars, that is.) Their mission continues, with a movie you may not have thought of, and to a sub-culture that you wouldn’t think would be very receptive to overtures from “The Happpiest Place on Earth.”
But, according to The Wall Street Journal, Disney has licensed a line of clothing, accessories, and fragrances based on Tim Burton‘s Alice in Wonderland to Hot Topic, aimed at “young women and teenage girls, particularly those who gravitate to darkly romantic entertainment like the “Twilight” series.”
To our great disappointment, there are as yet absolutely no pictures of the collection anywhere. Only this picture of a mushroom-decked Hot Topic in Los Angeles, ready for the movie premiere. Despite the lack of visual stimuli, we thought you should know.
We don’t have anything against goths, aside from the fact that they appear to take themselves very seriously. And it’s quite fun to make fun of people who take themselves very seriously.
