First of, Hot Topic is not cheap at all and you could get the same stuff cheaper else where. Second I don't like the idea that anyone can walk out with a whole gothy wardrobe, like the posers do. Third, their really just a mainstream chain store like any other mainstream chain store but with a little different attire inside. I don't know about you but I rather not buy a goth brand anything there, like Tripp.
But now not everyone wants to buy things online all the time. So here are some tips on Hot Topic:
- Treat it as any other mainstream chain store, like it is. It's not something to avoid, after all a lot of the stuff in there isn't necessarily "goth", in fact I see a lot of skaters and emos go in there.
- Don't buy too much of the goth brands such as Tripp from there just because it going to them so they can put more out. I rather buy elsewhere. And the reason I say too much is if you hate buying things online all the time and you live out where there are no actual gothy stores (like myself).
- Accessories I think are fine to get there if you want. But take note that if there is a Hot Topic there is bound to be a Claire's and Claire's from what I've seen is cheaper and has better stuff.
So there you have it, that is my opinion on shopping at Hot Topic, and a few tips. This is for anyone who cares to read this. And to be quite frank with you all I thought about doing this but instead put it off for some time thinking worrying if it would be any good writing this. But I did and I'll I can say it" take it or leave it, in the nicest way possible. Now that it's done, though, I feel much better.

P.S. I might have a hair post up soon depending on the way things go. I was planning on buying some red dye and redying my hair myself, but all that is up to if my mom will take me to get some and if I have anytime to do it.
