You’ve Got Red on You: A Loot Wear Review

Last month’s “Horror” themed Loot Wear subscriptions came with terrifyingly cool swag, and the debut of a brand new subscription geared towards men: undies! Here’s a breakdown of what each subscription came with:

  • Wearable: Alien
  • Loot Tees: Shaun of the Dead
  • Loot for Her: Edward Scissorhands Raglan
  • Socks: The Nightmare Before Christmas & The Walking Dead
  • Undies: The Walking Dead

I tossed my Alien wearable and Walking Dead socks in my laundry basket since I forgot to take pictures of each before wearing them. Whoops! However, you can get a better view of them in my unpacking video (at the very top of this post). I did style both the Loot Tee and the Loot For Her tops, so you can take a looksie at my Loot Wear ensembles and also my thoughts on them and the Nightmare Before Christmas socks and Walking Dead undies. 😀

Loot Tee:

I’m not one for scary things, but Shaun of the Dead is one of my favorite movies! When I found out there was going to be a Shaun of the Dead t-shirt for October’s Loot Wear subscription, I totally fangirled 😀 While I was a pretty disappointed I was sent a unisex shirt instead of the women’s size like last time, I still really dig the tee. I love how it incorporates Shaun and Ed’s respective weapons for the zombie outbreak, and also the subtle vinyl record.

Loot For Her:

This raglan’s material feels so much softer and cozier than the Princess Bride or Archer ones they released previously for the wearble subscription. Unfortunately they sent me a size M when I’m a XL/XXL, but it still fit me! It definitley would’ve been a lot more comfortable had it been my proper size. Another thing I like about the raglan is the design. You can’t really tell in my outfit picture since my boobs warp the design a little (#BigBoobieProblems), but Edward’s hands are shaped like a heart. That along with the quote from the movie is cute and heartbreaking all at once!

Socks:

Like I mentioned before, I forgot to take a picture of my Walking Dead socks before wearing them, so they’re not pictured here. However, I will say that I love them! Every time there’s a Walking Dead item, I always say that I’m not into that franchise, but damn if Loot Wear doesn’t always come out with cool wearbles and accessories for them! The maroon socks feature whit silhouettes of weapons that I’m assuming the characters of the show use to fight against the walkers (is that what the zombies are called in that show?), including Lucille, Neegan’s barbed wire baseball bat. <– I only know that because everyone and their mother have posted stuff about him since the latest season premiered. Also Jeffrey Dean Morgan is the kind of fine you don’t spell correctly: fiioooone!

EDIT: OMG. I was so busy thinking about how fiooone Jeffrey Dean Morgan is, I forgot to talk about how much I loved the Oogie Boogie and Jack Skellington socks that the socks subscription came with! I love the design on the socks with Oogie Boogie hovering over and unbeknownst looking Jack. The design also has a bit of a black light poster feel to them. And how cute is Jack holding that heart?! I thought the was “Horror,” not Kawaii Macabre!

Undies:

As you can see in my unpacking video, I was pretty surprised to see Loot Wear also included these Walking Dead chonies for dudes. They’re boxer briefs and the material is really nice and soft. I tried them on over my opaque nylons and you know what? They’re actually perfect to wear underneath skirts or dresses to help keep your nylons in place! I told my friend about them and they said, “You can stick stuff in the slot too!” And I was like da fuq are you guys talking about? Then it dawned on me and I thought, 1. there isn’t a slot for that, and 2. WHY WOULD I STICK THINGS IN THERE? That’s what a bra is for!

I am extremely excited for the month of October’s Loot Wear items because the theme is “Magical” and will have items from Harry Potter, Doctor Strange, Kingdom Hearts, and Adventure Time!!! Here’s a breakdown of what franchises will be featured for each subscription:

  • Socks: Harry Potter and Doctor Strange
  • Wearable: Harry Potter
  • Loot For Her: Kingdom Hearts (it’s supposed to be a knitted item)
  • Loot Tee: Doctor Strange
  • Undies: Adventure Time
