Hot Topic’s Newest Clothing Lines: Perfect for Closet Cosplays
Are you curious about cosplaying? Don’t know how to sew? Well if you’re anything like me and have no idea how to make clothing, check out two of the latest clothing lines Hot Topic has released.
Hot Topic teamed up with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and dropped an exclusive line of DC Bombshells clothes in April. The collection includes Harley Quinn’s bomber jacket, a Poison Ivy inspired dress, Batwoman’s baseball uniform, and Wonder Woman’s “Rosie the Riveter” styled outfit. Now you and your friends can be the coolest superheroine gang from the 40s! These outfits make for super simple cosplaying and look almost identical to what the characters wear in the comic.
Just find yourself a stylish red wig and a baseball bat and you’re ready to be Batwoman.
Or throw on that same wig, a fake rose (although don’t tell the real Ivy it’s fake) and some green heels for an elegant Poison Ivy.
Hot Topic also released a DC Bombshell swimsuit line that resembles the Wonder Woman and Poison Ivy outfits, perfect for lounging at the beach while reading your favorite comic book this summer.
And just in case the vintage styled superheroine look isn’t your thing, Hot Topic also teamed up with Her Universe and released a limited edition Star Wars: The Force Awakens line that has a more modern look. Her Universe is a fashion company that’s perfect for any chic fangirl. This Star Wars line includes designs by the winners of the Her Universe “Geek Couture” Fashion Show at last year’s San Diego Comic-Con.
You can join the Rebel Alliance with Finn’s jacket and Rey’s cardigan or if you’re more of a First Order type try Phasma’s jacket and leggings or dresses inspired by Kylo Ren and stormtroopers. Arm your lightsaber and high heels for battle.
And because every lady needs a cute droid in her life, there’s even a dress with a BB-8 vibe.
These are great choices for a simple closet cosplay or even an everyday look.
So grab your wigs, make-up and adorable dresses and head to your next convention looking super stylish. Let us know in the comments what character from these collections you’d like to cosplay as!
You can find these pieces in select Hot Topic locations and on their website. Both of these collections are available in XS-3X. The Star Wars: The Force Awakens collection is also available in plus sizes only on Hot Topic’s website.
