Get Ready For Hot Topic’s Anti-“Preppy” Lingerie

11/02/2012 12:14 PM |


In news that’s disturbing in a totally different, obviously less dire way than most of what we’ve been reporting this week, today we learned that Hot Topic — mecca of mall goths and confused tweens nationwide — will be launching its very own lingerie line.

Under the tagline “Love You to Death,” the “Blackheart” line is reportedly aimed at 18-to-30-year-olds (not, we pray, the webcam-happy teenagers of the world) and will launch officially on November 15th.

If images of Emily the Strange bodices, pink and black fishnets, and those weird old metal ball chokers aren’t already slam dancing through your head, the below “trailer” for the product is also, uh, instructive.
