by Teresa M.

Grab your kicks and your earbuds; it’s time to head to the mall! Walk straight past the food court, and swagger into Hot Topic for a virtual shopping spree.

Will you choose a Disney themed dress or the latest Fall Out Boy vinyl? The choices you make look deep inside you to tell us how emo you are!
