95% of the consumers who decorate themselves with Hot Topic brand Pre-packaged punk and related materials. Known for not bathing and dressing for excessively low temperatures at all times of the year. Favored fashion includes anything related to "The Nightmare Before Christmas", the bands "HIM, Slipknot, Insane Clown Posse, and Mushroomhead". Also, pants that were manufactured for a much larger individual, and fitted with metal restraints such as chains or straps. Apparently the message is individuality and non-conformity, though to be mallcore you must conform to nonconformity and be an individual like all the other mallcore "individuals". Sweatshirts and beanies appear to be mandatory, as well as random use of safety pins. Mallcore is not to be confused with actual goth, because goth folks appear to have jobs, and pay more money for higher end pre-packaged fasion. Apparently there is a distinction. Most mallcore kids end up mall janitors, those people that wear signs for costume shops next to the freeway, or if they follow thier dreams, one day manage a hot topic.
Mallcore kid 1: "ICP is awesome"
Mallcore kid 2: "HIM defines me"
Mallcore kid 3: "I can't like ICP or HIM anymore because you like them now. All i have is this Duran Duran CD i bought"
