Checking In With Hot Topic: Little Mermaid Leggings
Every so often (multiple times a week), we (I) browse Hot Topic's website to see What The Kids Are Wearing These Days. The answer: Little Mermaid leggings! With raver boots!
Even if it's unclear how many people are actually buying the $16 stretch pants — which I would have loved to pair with my splatter paint tees in 1992 — knowing they exist is enough.
Serious question though: How stretchy and unrecognizable does Ariel's face have to be before Disney's licensing department is like "Meh, sure, stick her on some leggings and sell them next to 'Come At Me Bro,' tanks, we don't care."
