Hot Topic launches line of Twin Peaks merchandise just in time for return


The new line of Twin Peaks merchandise includes a cosplay-ready cardigan and diner uniform as well as Audrey Horne, Bob, and Laura Palmer vinyl figurines.

With only a week left till David Lynch’s seminal detective drama, Twin Peaks, returns to television on Showtime, Hot Topic and BoxLunch are launching a line of tie in merchandise (with a hat tip to Fashionably Geek).  Everything is officially licensed and available in stores.

The line includes some pretty nifty stuff, especially for our cosplaying friends out there.  The Donna Hayward cardigan is on point, but also would look pretty killer with more basic stuff as a statement piece.  Of course there’s the added benefit of getting to look like an infamous ’90s sex symbol, which is cool.

The Double R Diner waitress dress is really cute, too.  And it has pockets!  BoxLunch has an exclusive Good Coffee Apron to complete the look.  With a pair of white sneakers and a blonde up-do you’ll have the Norma look down for your viewing party.

Rounding out the cosplay paraphernalia are some iron-on patches for the Twin Peaks Sheriff’s Department.  They’re pretty cool, and can be paired with some of the pins on a jacket or bag to broadcast your Twin Peaks love wherever you go.

The line also features some pretty nifty t-shirts featuring fun and clever tie-ins to the show. The vinyl figures are my absolute favorite, though.  They’ve got Laura Palmer’s body in plastic, and its freakin adorable.  That’s David Lynch for you, though.

For my fellow Angelenos, the Hot Topic at Hollywood & Highland in Los Angeles will host an in-store event to celebrate on May 20.

There will be a bunch of cool stuff like a photo-booth installation with some Black Lodge party-favors.  Anyone who spends $20 or more will get a really cool Great Northern Hotel Key Chain while supplies last.
