All the Loot: My SDCC Haul

Look at my cute lil’ General Hux Huxband Funko Pop figure! Isn’t he the cutest?! He’s one of the many things I picked up at SDCC this year.

So, I finally made a haul video to show off all the awesome stuff I picked up at SDCC. I’ve actually made a few over the last couple years, but never ever got around to actually publishing them. And even though I’ve made a few vlogs already, it’s quite odd because it’s like I’m just talking to myself. And then editing? Uugggh… listening and watching myself talk so much is w-e-i-r-d. WEIRD.

Anywho, you can watch the video down below:

Do you vlog too? Let me know how you get through it! And if you also went to SDCC, I’d love to hear about some of the cool things you picked up too 😀

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! 🙂
