Yesterday our meetup group had our first Goth Mall Crawl. I've never been a mall goth, and I was dying to find out what it was like! No, seriously, I just thought it would be fun, and possibly nostalgic for anyone who had ever been a mall goth, only without all the angst. Also I haven't been shopping with anyone besides Martin in ages, so it was perfect.
Anyway, while only four of us actually made it, we had a blast! I knew both the others already, and one brought her 16-year-old daughter, who I have seen occasionally but haven't spent time with in a few years. We met at Hot Topic, and ended up spending probably an hour there, looking through everything (and I mean EVERY thing!) and trying things on. I ended up with a bottle of awesome pink/blue spatter nail polish and two great pairs of shorts that had "Buy one, get one for $1" tags on them! I was really lucky to find both in my size, as there was only one pair of each left, AND they were the only ones I liked.
The Misfits shorts (I'm thinking of removing the back pockets so you can see the letters, it says "Misfits"):
The purple/black tie-dyed distressed shorts by LOVEsick, and the nail polish (which has a LOT more blue flecks in it than this pic does):
Then we had lunch, followed by a stroll around the rest of the donut-shaped mall. I lost count of how many stores we actually went into; it really didn't matter because we were doing so much talking, anyway. When we finally got back to Hot Topic, we'd been there for almost five hours... no wonder my feet hurt!
The one thing we didn't do was take any pictures. :-( I guess we were too busy talking to care!
Have you ever done the mall goth thing?
