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!
“We are obsessed with Orphan Black here at Hot Topic,” explained Cindy Levitt, Senior Vice President of Merchandising and Marketing at Hot Topic in a press release, “and are ecstatic to be given the opportunity to work with the amazing team at Temple Street to design a collection inspired by the four main clones – Sarah, Cosima, Alison and Helena.”
According to Hot Topic, tiny details in each outfit showcase both intimate, personal details about each clone while also spotlighting their binding sestrahood. Said Levitt: “The detail in each clone’s outfit is so tied to her character and personality that you have to look more than once to catch everything. So look closely for embroidered stick figures and zipper pulls, Helena’s wings – even Alison’s glue gun. These pieces were so much fun to create.”
My personal favorite has to be the Helena “wings” shirt. When I first saw the photos, I flipped through them going “Oh, this is cute! Oh, that’s cute, too!” And then I got to the Helena shirt and was all, “OMG, that’s so creepy…I LOVE IT!” The detail on the clothes is incredible, and Hot Topic did an amazing job of keeping the ensembles really true to each clone. Dare I ask for plus-sizes, please? Because I wanna rock out at the next Clone Club dance party in that Helena shirt!
Check out the clone clothes in action in the video below!
Hot Topic will begin selling the line on their website tomorrow, the 24th, and they’ll be available in stores April 13th. I predict many cosplay watching parties when Orphan Black returns for Season 3 on April 18th!
