Today is a good day. Oh, I'm sure there's plenty of terrible things going on in the world right now, but today is the day that Underoos, the incredible t-shirt-underpants-minimalist cosplay underwear returns to stores! For adults even! And with awesome characters to choose from!


Right now, Hot Topic is selling seven sets — Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Captain America, He-Man and Skeletor — for just under $20 each (new Batman Underoos definitely exist, but they seem to be sold out online). Happily, besides being for kids and adults, that's a 50/50 split of characters for guys and gals. I suspect — and I certainly hope — that this is just a trial run to see how they sell, and that more will come.

If so, given how many licenses Hot Topic carries, do you know what we kind of Underoos we could possibly get if we're lucky? Deadpool! Transformers! Supernatural! Halo! Harry Potter! Rocky Horror Picture Show! THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS AND AWESOME.


Oh! And I didn't even mention the best part! Check out the sweet retro packaging on these guys!

I'm taking personal credit for all this, by the way. Infinite thanks to the Idle Hands blog for the tip!
