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

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

The Future is Bright: A Loot Wear Review

Hey my little ponies! I received the latest subscriptions from Loot Wear (formerly known as Level Up) a few days ago and did a little unpacking video for it. Check it out to see what’s inside along with my honest reaction of the items 🙂

Here’s a list of what came with each subscription:

Socks:
– Mega Man
– Rick & Morty

Wearable:
– Futurama hooded t-shirt

T-shirt:
– Voltron

Loot for Her:
– Bioshock tank top

I created a couple outfits from the fun threads that came with this package, including the Futurama hooded tee and the Bioshock tank top! I would’ve done a third outfit for the Voltron t-shirt, but it’s not the right size 😥

Outfit #1: “All in all, it’s a fine day for an apocalypse.”

With the current state of the US and the fact that I actually wore leggings as pants in public (LE GASP), the end of the world must be nigh! Leggings as pants has always been one of those fashion faux pas that make me cringe if it’s not done nicely. Like, if you’re gonna do it I feel like you should wear a top that covers your bum and crotch because no one wants to see the outline of your nether regions. Am I right? You know I am! The Futurama hoodie tee has a tunic-like feel to it, so my bum was nice and covered! I would’ve tucked it into a cute skater skirt, but I didn’t see one in my closet that I thought would look good with it. And I couldn’t find my black jeggings (hey, they look like denim!), so I had to resort to regular ‘ol leggings. I threw on my denim vest and sparkly bracelets so I wouldn’t be covered in all black. And you can’t really tell, but I purposely wore my dark purple flats with this outfit as a subtle nod to Leela’s hair. 🙂

Admittedly, this is one of my least polished outfits, but I threw it together when my two besties invited me out for pizza right when I changed into my pajamas and didn’t feel like going out at all. I nearly turned down free pizza, you guys. Who does that?! #EndOfTheWorldIsNigh

Outfit #2: Not Cthulhu

If you watched my unpacking video for this month’s subscriptions, you would’ve seen that I had no idea what fandom this tank’s design belonged to. The robot looked a little familiar, but I was totally lost. For a hot second I thought it looked kinda like Cthulhu. But alas, it’s from Bioshock Infinite! The only things I know about Bioshock Infinite is that it’s a video game that has a steampunk feel, a pretty lady character that tons of women cosplay at cons, a birdcage, and robots. I’ve seen pictures from the game and I think it looks really cool, but I am too uncoordinated and anxious to play first shooter games. I’ll just stick with Duck Hunt, thank you very much.

I really like the tank top though —  it has nice a graphic on it! I paired it with a brass feather necklace to make a reference to the birdcage. I used to frown upon wearing things from fandoms I’m not into, but Loot Wear makes it hard to stick to my guns when they come out with cute stuff that has absolutely nothing to do with my geek interests. 😛

Overall thoughts on July’s subscription items? Pretty good despite the fact that Futurama is the only thing that I’m actually a fan of, and the Voltron shirt not being the right size. 😦

Next month’s theme is “Anti-Heroes” and I’m pretty excited for it because the Loot for Her subscription is going to have something Harley Quinn related! I’m hoping for some sort of tote bag or jewelry piece. The sock subscription will have the Punisher and Suicide Squad, the t-shirt will be World of Warcraft (I played WoW for three months and all I did was pick herbs and make outfits), and the wearable item will be from Archer… another show I keep putting on hold!

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. 🙂
