Magical Merchandise: 2022 Hot Topic & Her Universe Disney Halloween

Candy corn heaven.  I am in Disney candy corn heaven!!!  And the universe knows it. 

Last Friday, I randomly woke up around 6 am and couldn't fall back asleep.  After a few attempts and failing, I took it as a sign that I should be awake.  I started playing around on my phone while laying in bed and that's when I came across it... a post from my Disney Dress Shop group about Her Universe having the candy corn dress online.

I won't deny it; I've been low-key stalking Hot Topic's website and all of my favorite Disney merchandise Instagrammers for weeks now... ever since I first heard of the new candy corn dress and sweaters existence.  Eliot and I even went to our local Hot Topic a few weeks ago.  (They had the sweater, but not in my size.)  They had originally said it would be online "mid-August" but since that came and went... I've been afraid that I'd miss it.  My biggest fear was that everything would pop up while we were in California and I'd totally miss it.  And those fears weren't completely unfounded... last year's Disney candy corn sweater sold out in mere hours in the middle of the night.

I immediately popped out of bed, got dressed and crept downstairs.  (Eliot was sound asleep and I didn't want to wake him.)  I got on my laptop and went to check the HU website.  Not only did Her Universe have the dress, but there it was, the entire 2022 Disney Halloween collection!  The next thing I noticed was two candy corn sweaters... 

I immediately jumped over to Hot Topic (their sister site) and the Halloween collection was available there as well.  I put the candy corn dress and sweater in my cart and checked out right away.  I tend to purchase from Hot Topic over Her Universe because I get free shipping from them, and I also earn points to get rewards.

After the rush of relief and excitement over getting the items when they were in stock and barely anyone knew they were even online, there was no way I was falling back asleep... but it was worth it!  Sometimes it pays to randomly wake up early and the universe definitely had this Disney and candy corn lover's back!  

Now that I've had a few days to come down off of my candy corn shopping high, I wanted to share the 2022 Disney Halloween collection with you!

Let's start with one of the Our Universe products.  This Mickey Mouse Mummy Hoodie comes in unisex sizing so men and women can wear it.  I love the tie dye look!

This Stitch Devil Raglan T-Shirt is another cute option... especially if you love Stitch!

I thought this Winnie the Pooh Sweatshirt was really cute!  I wish it had Eeyore though!

This is another unisex Our Universe product for both men and women.  I think Eliot would love this Mickey Halloween Button Up Shirt!

I didn't buy this yet, but I think this Bat Wing Collar Button Up Shirt is really cute too!  I love the bat wing collar and the Mickey and Minnie embroidery on it!

The Disney Halloween Shortalls were the surprise item in the collection.  These are completely sold out on both Her Universe and Hot Topic... except for a few plus sizes.

Now, we're getting to my favorites!  Here's the Mickey and Minnie Mouse Candy Corn Collared Dress.  I absolutely love the candy corn colored skirt on it!

Here's a close up of the embroidered details on the collar.  Isn't this adorable?!?!

Here's the 2022 version of the Mickey Candy Corn Stripe Hooded Cardigan. This year, they added really cute pumpkin buttons down the front.  The embroidery designs on the sleeve are also a little bit different from last year's design.  There's cute Mickey pumpkin on the front.  And this year, there's a hood that has mouse ears! 

Finally, the "other" sweater that I saw on Her Universe's website is a HU exclusive, that's why Hot Topic didn't have it.  It's very similar to last year's design.  In fact, I think it's the exact same patches on the sleeves, the only difference is that it has a black stripe added to the candy corn pattern instead of just being orange, yellow and white.

Aren't all of these items adorable?!?  Obviously, I'm a sucker for all of the candy corn stuff, but I think the rest of the collection is cute as well.  I hope Her Universe continues to keep their Disney holiday collections coming!  I'm definitely 100% hooked!

I hope you enjoyed this sweet post!  Have a wonderful week friends!!!  °o°
