By the Floral of Greyskull: A Level Up Review

Hey my little ponies! Level Up’s been churning out some pretty sweet loot within the past few months! In the video above I go over the items from April (“Quest”), May (“Power”), and June’s (“Dystopia”) subscriptions. Make sure to check it out to see the fun stuff they’ve sent out. 🙂

Of the three, May’s subscription items were my favorite! Down below you can see how I styled the Super Mario infinity scarf and Masters of the Universe t-shirt! And for June’s you can see how I styled the Ghostbusters wearable item.

For April’s subscription, I remember being super stoked about it because I had been hoping for something along the lines of their “Fantasy” themed Loot Crate box from last year. The “Fantasy” box came with items from Game of Thrones, The Princess Bride, Harry Potter, and Dungeons & Dragons, so I had visions of some sort of Harry Potter or Game of Thrones accessory/wearable stuck in my head. And in a promo email I got, it said stuff from Harry Potter and the Labyrinth would be included, but then I learned that that was for the Loot Crate box, not the Level Up subscription. – le sigh – But most of the fandoms included in the Level Up subscription were things I was a fan of like The Legend of Zelda, Goonies, and The Princess Bride. I was little thrown off that Star Trek was included as the lady loot item since January’s “Invasion” already had a Star Trek BFF necklace. I’m not completely immersed in the Trekkie ‘verse — I’ve only seen the newer movies with John Cho and Simon Pegg, and thoroughly enjoyed them. The Star Trek items they’ve come out with have been really cool, like the galaxy print leggings from “Quest,” but I’m hoping to see a bit more diversity within the next few subscriptions as far as fandoms go. It seems like Super Mario and Marvel  has made an appearance a few times too. Of course I don’t mind that since Mario was practically part of my childhood, and I’m a big fan of Marvel. Bleh. I’m just being biased. 😛

Other than the Star Trek overload, I really dig the stuff Level Up comes out with and I’m not just saying that ’cause they send it to me (see FTC disclosure below). Everything I’ve ever received has always been top quality. But I digress.

So, without further ado, here are some of the ways I styled items from the past few subscriptions:

Look #1: By the Floral of Greyskull

May’s “Power” t-shirt subscription came with a pretty rad He-Man t-shirt featuring his loyal pal Cringer (aka Battle Cat when He-Man zaps him with the Power of Greyskull) lookin’ fierce AF. He-Man’s silhouette is actually in the middle of Cringer, but you can’t see him in my outfit since I tucked the tee into my skirt. I really dig the design on this tee; the greens are so vibrant! I felt slightly weird about wearing it since I was more into She-Ra than He-Man as a kid, but when worn like this it seems inconspicuous enough. Green and pink is one of my favorite color combos, so I paired the tee with this cute floral skirt and pink statement necklace.

Look #2: Ghostbuster Chic

In my unpacking video review, I initially said that the wearable item from June’s “Dystopia” subscription looked a little too big since it’s a unisex XL. It fit me alright, but I looked a little boxy when I tried it on the way it’s supposed to be worn. In order to make it more feminine, I rolled the sleeves up a little and tied a knot in middle like I usually do with some of my cardigans. If I watch the new Ghostbusters movie, I know what I’m wearing to the theater!

Look #3: C’est Un Dress

Okay, so I’m pretty damn proud of myself about this outfit because I turned the Super Mario infinity scarf (that I totally forgot to show in the video. D’oh!) that was part May’s Lady Loot subscription into a mo’fookin’ dress! Er… well kind of, anyway. I was super excited about Yogurtland’s Nintendo campaign, and really wanted to wear the scarf when I went a few days ago. But it’s summer and I live in the Central Valley of California and it’s stupid hot over here. BUT I WANTED TO WEAR THE SCARF. I wore a black dress as a base and attempted what felt like a bajillion different styles (probably only four though) until I came up with what you see in the picture above.

If you’re into geek fashion, I definitely think Level Up is worth checking out. Plus you can save 10% off your subscription by using the code LEFANCYGEEK during checkout. Wee! 🙂

Level Up “Versus” Review

Last month’s Level Up subscription theme was “Versus” and you know what? I felt like it was me versus effing iMovie because it did NOT want to let me edit my damn unpacking video! I got so angry, I had to walk away and color in some pages of my Star Wars coloring book. I managed to prevail in the end though! So iMovie can go suck it 😛

Check out my video to see all the cool stuff it came with! I also go into further detail about Level Up in case you’re not familiar with it. If you’re reading this via email and not on my actual site, I noticed that my YouTube vids don’t show up, so you can watch it here.

I’ll be posting different ways I accessorized the items later this week! 🙂

Level Up by Loot Crate February Review & Giveaway!

{GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED} winners have been contacted. thanks to all who entered!

Holy sh!t biscuits, y’all! Level Up totally killed it with the loot that came in their February fashion subscriptions, which is funny considering that the theme of the month was “Dead.” Haha! #PunsForDays

But seriously, there was so much cool stuff! I was particularly stoked for the women’s Wearable subscription item because I knew Her Universe was designing something with Deadpool and tacos. And you guuuys, the top they came out with is the cutest thing EVER!!!!

Here’s a breakdown of what every subscription came with:

♥ Female Fashion Accessories: Blood Splatter nail wraps by Espionage Cosmetics and a The Walking Dead cherokee rose necklace by Bioworld.

♥ T-Shirt: black and white Silence of the Lambs tee.

♥ Socks: Deadpool and glow-in-the-dark Death Eaters (Harry Potter) socks.

FYI: There are 2 combo subscriptions you can subscribe to – one is the wearable item + socks, and the other is the fashion accessories + t-shirt

Keep on reading to get to the giveaway portion!

I was really excited about the Esiponage Cosmetics nails wraps that came with the Female Fashion Accessories sub. It has a blood splatter design that reminded me of Dexter. And they glow in the mother effin’ dark! That was a total surprise to me as my nails glowed while I watched Zootopia at the theater on Monday. It does say they’re glow-in-the-dark on the package, but I was too excited to put them on my nails to bother reading anything else on it. I put the nail wraps on about a week and a half ago and they’re still on! If you ever get any nail wraps from Espionage, I highly recommend putting a top coat over to help make it last longer.

Even though I’ve never seen Silence of the Lambs or watched Hannibal because scary movies and TV shows aren’t my thing, I really love the shirt and its design is pretty inconspicuous to the unknowing. Except when I wore it to work one day, my co-worker was like, “Oh my God, it’s the death moth!” and I’m like, “the what-what?” * shoulder shrug * And… I don’t watch The Walking Dead either (I tried! it was too stressful!), but I’m loving how simplistic the cherokee rose necklace is. When you open the pendant, there’s a mirror on the inside, and on the back it’s inscribed with a quote that says “This rose started to grow right where the mother’s tears fell.”  Even though I’m not part of the fandom, I am sooooo happy for all you Richonne shippers!!!

Overall, I was super happy with all the items that came with every subscription. But the Deadpool shirt by Her Universe, you guys. You guuuuuys. IT IS GIVING ME SO MUCH LIFE. And the nail wraps go with it perfectly!

Nerdvember: The Final Week!

Whoooops, I’ve been so busy with work and trying to finish up inventory for Whimsic Alley’s Geeky Faire (which is happening TOMORROW!) that I totally forgot to make a post about my outfits for the final week of Set to Stunning’s Nerdvember challenge/contest! Mah bad.

Day 22: Winter is Coming

My sister and I headed to San Francisco so she could check out the ModCloth Fit Shop and meet up with our friend Brooke. I decided to wear my Lulu Tops Westeros Map dress (I do believe it’s a faux version of the Black Milk Clothing one, but whatever), a pair of earrings by Nerdy Buy Still Girly with Jon Snow and Ghost, and my Robb Stark necklace. We found the perfect snowflake backdrop at the mall to take pictures in front of too! 😀

Day 23: You Can’t Sith With Us

I layered my favorite Darth Vader pullover over my black and white tartan dress and paired it with my faux leather pink motorcycle jacket, Darth Vader brooch, and plushie Vader backpack. Kind of felt very Mean Girls x Clueless.

Day 24: Where the Wild Things Are

I layered my Where the Wild Things Are pullover by Out of Print Clothing over the Old Navy dress I wore for my cousin’s wedding, but totally didn’t realize how wrinkled it was until my friend Norma took my picture after we got out of class. Whoops!

Day 25: BB-8

You guys, I seriously love Utinni Bikini. I have a problem. I bought this BB-8 dress when they were having a special sale during Halloween, so I immediately placed an order. Haha! Even though I love the Dark Side, I do love some of the “good guys” too. And y’all know BB-8 has stolen my heart. ♥

Day 26: Happy Sithsgiving!

Basically a variation of Day 23’s outfit. Haha! My mom also happened to wear a Star Wars sweater for Thanksgiving too. We didn’t even plan to match, it just happened. The Force must be strong in my family! 🙂

Day 27: Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey

The folks at Level Up sent me a package full of some timey-wimey goodness! I paired the TARDIS belt and pendant that came in the package with my Her Universe dress featuring all the baddies from Doctor Who, along with a pendant I made with my companion, Rory, and a hair bow by my friend Jen (Walrus of the Sea). GERONIMO!

I’ll be making a special, more detailed post about the goodies I got, so be on the lookout for that!

Day 28: You Can’t Sith With Us: Part Deux

In case you’re wondering, yes. That is ANOTHER dress by Utinni Bikini. It has AT-ATs and Stormtroopers all over it! After I placed my order for the BB-8 dress, I got a message saying that I could get another dress for a super cheap price plus free shipping, soooo I caved in. Also, I’m feelin’ this bowler hat, you guys. Not sure if you can tell since it’s popped up in quite a few of my Nerdvember photos. 😛

Day 29: BB-8: Part Deux

BB-8 FOREVER AND EVER!! I ordered this BB-8 bomber by Her Universe while my sister drove us to Disneyland for Season of the Force a few weeks ago, and it finally came in on the 25th (unbeknowst to be since my email notification was buried in my inbox). I was also feeling particularly lazy this day and couldn’t be bothered to brush my hair. But I took a picture anyway because I was very determined to get all 30 days of November documented. 😛

Day 30: Girly Looking Nerfherder

For my final outfit of Nerdvember I paired this velvet black dress with Han and Leia pins I got at Disneyland, my Millennium Falcon belt, and Darth Vader purse. On my Instagram my description was:

Han Solo vibes today because sometimes I need a reminder to be a scruffy looking badass nerfherder. And self rescuing princess, and sometimes Sith Lord… I’m complicated.

So that’s a wrap on Nerdvember! I hope you all enjoyed my geek inspired outfits throughout the month. 😀

cheers
