Accio Geek Apparel: A Loot Wear Review

Last month’s Loot Wear was full of magical items from franchises like Doctor Strange, Kingdom Hearts, Adventure, but most importantly (at least to me anyway) Harry Potter! If you’re unfamiliar with Loot Wear, it’s a monthly geeky mystery apparel subscription service. There are 5 different subscriptions you can get, or you can pick a bundle to get multiple items!

Here’s a breakdown:

  • Wearble ($14.99)
  • Socks ($9.99)
  • Loot for Her ($14.99)
  • Tee ($8.99)
  • Undies ($9.99)

Bundle subscriptions are available too!

  • Socks & Wearable: 2 pairs of socks and 1 wearable ($20.99)
  • Risky Business: 1 tee, 1 pair of socks, and undies ($16.99)

Every month’s theme includes items from franchises that are related, so I was pretty damn excited when I saw that Loot Wear’s November wearble and socks subscriptions would include Harry Potter items! Here’s all the stuff that came with it:

  • Wearable: Harry Potter lounge pants
  • Loot Tees: Doctor Strange
  • Loot for Her: Kingdom Hearts knitted scarf
  • Socks: Harry Potter and Doctor Strange
  • Undies: Adventure Time feat. Earl of Lemongrab

Loot Tee:

I wasn’t too excited about the Doctor Strange movie despite the fact that I’m a self-proclaimed “Cumberbitch” because of the whole Asian whitewashing thing. I do want to look into the comics eventually though. With that prejudice aside, I thought the Doctor Strange tee was cleverly designed and I love the fact that it’s like an ugly Christmas sweater! I paired the tee with my navy polka dot skirt, a gold belt, and some red ballet flats. I would’ve worn my red cardigan with this, but it was nowhere to be found. Oh well!

Loot for Her:

A pair of Kingdom Hearts socks was included in a previous subscription with the same design as this scarf. Though I don’t play the game, I’ve gotten the most use out of this particular item besides the Harry Potter lounge pants because it’s super warm and cozy! I think the symbols are inconspicuous enough for me to get away with wearing it. And as you can see from the pics, I wear the scarf two different ways 🙂

Socks, Wearble, Undies:

The Harry Potter socks are hands down the best socks Loot Wear’s come out with. EVER. They are soooooooo cute!!!!! I can’t stand it! And I’ve been wearing the lounge pants non-stop (don’t worry, they’ve been washed twice already). They’re on the lightweight side, so I have to bundle up on blankets to keep me warm at night. But I still love ’em! Make sure you watch the unpacking video to get a better look at them and the Lemongrab undies.

December’s theme is “Revolution” and tomorrow (December 19) is the last day to subscribe to get it! Make sure to do so before 9pm PST!! Any of these subs would make the perfect Christmas present for the fangirl or fanboy in your life ♥

  • Socks: Guardians of the Galaxy, Mr. Robot
  • Wearable: Rick and Morty
  • Loot For Her: Spider-Gwen
  • Loot Tee: Invader Zim
  • Undies: Rick and Morty

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! 🙂
