Hot Topic x Disney Alice Through The Looking Glass Unboxing Video
The ladies (and a few gents) of Nerdist did an unboxing vid of the Hot Topic X Alice Through the Looking Glass collection over on their FB page (your's truly makes a brief appearance).
Hot Topic sent along the menswear and the ladies wear options! Now that I've got to see everything up close, here's my overall assessment.
The menswear line - it's ok. The vest looks cheap for what the cost is but the jackets are much nicer than I had expected. Would have enjoyed to see a more robust line overall, but it was nice they added some guy's options in the first place.
Ladies wear - I hate the dresses. HATE THEM. Typical, generic skater silhouettes made from cheap material. That said, the detailing on some of them (The Red Queen dress in particular) was an attempt in the right direction.
The ladies jackets & vest - If you're going to spend your money on this collection, this is where you should spend it.
Skip the dresses and for a few extra bucks invest in the coats or vest. All are surprisingly well made for the cost and look quite fetching.
