Hot Topic AU

Alright I want to give everyone a heads up that many Hot Topics will be having a Star Wars day on Friday, Septmber 30th for Rogue One, with all kinds of new items, deals, and events! As a Hot Topic manager, I am not allowed to field questions about what type of merch/what price/what deals/etc will be available that day ahead of time, but I can tell you that I will be cosplaying.

As Kylo Ren. At Hot Topic.

In 12+ years of making costumes (and 10+ years of marriage), we had never actually cosplayed an OTP. Couples cosplay, sure, but never one of my omg-these-two-idiots-have-taken-over-my-brain ships.

I can’t lie, it was pretty awesome. Love you, sirrogue

Wow… and, uh, now I can’t think straight. (actually, I’m thinking very straight right now, but I digress).

Anyone else remember the X-Men cartoon from the early 90’s? Because I swear Gambit and Rogue was my first ever ship…
