I check out Hot Topic every now and then to see if there are any new t-shirts of my favorite bands/artists like Morrissey/The Smiths, The Clash, and Tiger Army. This store is a haven for those who are into punk, goth, and alternative rock as well as anime and pirates. The store is small (crowded during the weekends) and dark but has enough lighting so you can see what you're buying. There's only one dressing room, so you'll have to wait to use it. They usually play hardcore music/punk/goth. At one time, they played Notorious B.I.G., which, strangely enough, made me chuckle a bit. The clothing is on the expensive side, especially if you want buy items like a jacket or a corset. I was lucky enough to get a corset on sale for $17! Most of them are usually $42. Most of the accessories aren't as expensive. They sell little items like bumper sticks and band/message pins (for those of you, like me, who like to put them on messenger bags). This is another place to find halloween makeup and costumes, especially adult ones. The salespeople are friendly and helpful. They greet me most of the time when I come into the store. If you shop there a lot, it helps to have a Frequent Buyer's card. The salesperson stamps it everytime you spend $10. After spending $100, you get 15% off your next purchase.
