Fandom of the Month Club: Game of Thrones Box

Fandom of the Month Club (FOTMC) put out another special limited edition box quite similar to the Severus Snape box I got earlier this year, but this time it’s based on Game of Thrones! Of course I had to order one 🙂

The pieces all came in a pretty red satin pouch that says, “A Lannister Always Pays His Debts” in gold; it  came with a Tyrion magnet, dragon claw ring, direwolf studs, a direwolf decal (not pictured), a pocket watch necklace featuring Jon Snow, and a steel book marker with a quote by Jojen. Overall I thought the pieces were really nice, but I wish that there was a bit more diversity in which houses/characters were represented. To me, it felt very House Stark and Lannister heavy since a majority of the items were from those houses. Even the postcard had a quote from Cersei on it.

Since FOTMC is geared towards geek girls, it would’ve been cool to see a bigger item that represented House Targaryen, or even something that had to do with House Tyrell or Brienne of Tarth. Ladies f*cking RULED season 6! I would’ve loved to have seen a cuff shaped like a dragon in this box. How cool would that be? COOLER THAN WINTERFELL ON A SUMMER DAY. That’s how cool.

My favorite piece was definitely the Jon Snow pocket watch, despite the fact that it came undone when I first took it out of the box (you can see that in the unboxing video above), but I was able to easily fix it. It says, “My watch has ended” which I thought was pretty punny because it’s on a pocket watch. My watch has endeday? Aaayyy?! Whatever, I like puns. 😛

If you want to purchase a Game of Thrones box for yourself or someone else, they’re still available here.

cheers

Fandom of the Month Club: Snape Tribute Box

Last week this cute little box from Fandom of the Month Club arrived at my doorstep! I’ve been waiting for this ever since I ordered it back in January as it is the special Snape Tribute Box that they put together in honor of Alan Rickman. They also donated $2 for every box to St. Jude’s. It took them 4-6 weeks to design the jewelry as it wasn’t planned out.

It came with a black pouch that says “Property of the Half Blood Prince” in gold, 4 pieces of jewelry, a magnet with a minimalist portrait of Snape, a decal that says “Always” with the a being a Deathly Hallows (not pictured, but you can see it in the unboxing video above), and a really pretty postcard. Overall, I’m super pleased with everything it came with! My particular favorite piece from the box is the necklace with the doe, a lily flower, and a little bottle that says “look at me.” I got quite emotional when I saw it. Actually, the box as a whole made me very emotional because of the premise of why the box was made in the first place. 🙁

Since the Snape Tribute box did very well, they’re putting out another special box themed “Magical Creatures.” It’s $16, but $2 will be donated to Hearts United for Animals. Like the Snape box, it’ll take 4-6 weeks for the item to ship out as they need the time to put together designs for the jewelry in the collection. I’m thinking of picking this one up too because if I was a student at Hogwarts, I think Care of Magical Creatures would be my favorite class. 🙂
