Showtime’s “Penny Dreadful” has devised a new way for fans to show their devotion to the gothic horror series, with a clothing line set to debut at Hot Topic ahead of the season two premiere.

Variety can exclusively reveal that CBS Consumer Products and Showtime have partnered with Hot Topic for a “Penny Dreadful”-inspired collection of women’s clothing, with tanks, dresses, and jackets incorporating the macabre imagery and themes from the show into wearable apparel. The line will be available for pre-order online at HotTopic.com from April 28, before hitting shelves on May 26.

“’Penny Dreadful’ has a unique aesthetic that is really captured in this apparel collection,” said Liz Kalodner, exec VP and general manager of CBS Consumer Products. “We’re excited to partner with a retailer like Hot Topic to give ‘Penny Dreadful’ fans the ability to express their love of the show with such a stylish assortment.”

The series stars Eva Green, Timothy Dalton and Josh Hartnett, with Reeve Carney, Rory Kinnear, Helen McCrory, Billie Piper, Simon Russell Beale, Danny Sapani and Harry Treadaway.

The “Penny Dreadful” line comes hot on the heels of other pop culture-inspired collections at Hot Topic, including BBC America’s “Orphan Black” and Marvel’s “Avengers.”

“Penny Dreadful” season two premieres Sunday, May 3, at 10 p.m. on Showtime.

    Gorgeous clothes! Lots of scorpions & just happen to be a Scorpio! The clothes DO NEED to be for REAL WOMEN, NOT anorexic waifs so skinny you can count their ribs & ID anatomic landmarks from across the room-as opposed to utilizing palpation rather than VISUALLY! !!

    Where the collection for men at? :(

    I love it! Gorgeous! I just hope you made sizes for real women. :)

      I would love to see this be like the Orphan Black collection with plus size versions offered at Torrid. Because these are GORGEOUS and I know so many other women who would love to see these in their sizes as well!

    dywanów nie będzie lepszym, skuteczniejszym a zarazem tańszym rozwiązaniem.
