What's In Hot Topic's 'Fantastic Beasts' Collection? It's More Magical Than You Can Handle
The deep wound right through the middle of your chest caused by the end of Harry Potter is finally getting a chance to heal, thanks to Fantastic Beasts. And now you can look magical as you mend, thanks to the Hot Topic Fantastic Beasts clothing line. It's not costumey, either. The days of donning your cape and wand while you wait in line to see the next installment are over. You don't have to show your house loyalty by wearing the right colored stripey scarf with your regular muggle clothes. This is real style that's really fantastic.
The clothes are a throwback to the roaring 1920's and they are vintage, modern, stately, and whimsical, all at the same time. You can wear them to work, or to Comic Con and totally be appropriate. I know, right! The Potterverse is a gift that just keeps on giving. What's even cooler than the fact that these clothes exist at all is the fact that they come in a wide range of sizes, so you don't have to have your Fantastic Beasts clothing line hopes and dreams destroyed because of your size. Yes! You have to pay extra for plus sizes (really?) for women's styles but not men's (super really?) but it's a start.
The pieces are available online only, as of right now, through the Hot Topic Website, and run about $50 to $100 per piece. It's a small piece to pay for fashionable fandom that actually looks and functions like real clothes.
