My internet at home has been down all week, which is frustrating. I promised myself I would post this today while at work, then I realized I forgot to take pictures of my actual Loot Crate items. So, I borrowed a few picture from google. I will try to replace these later with my own images, but until then, this works.
My Loot Crate arrived Saturday afternoon while I was at Wizard World Chicago. This month had only four items, but they were sizable items. It included:
My favorite item, a Hydra replica pin. For some reason, the Midwest Garrison has taken to shouting “Hail Hydra” to each other all the time, I even have a Hydra patch on my patch jacket. This pin went straight on there, though it may move somewhere else eventually, since there is already Hydra representation.
My second favorite item, a Loot Crate Exclusive little wooden Joker figure with interchangeable heads (different heads have different words in his mouth). Most people expect Joker to be my favorite male DC Villain (since I am Harley Quinn and all), but that honor goes to Riddler, who was my favorite long before Harley debuted in 1992. Still, my puddin’ will always hold a special place in my heart.
An Apron, which I am told is from Breaking Bad. I have never watched the show. This item is functional, but it holds no real excitement for me. I might use it, I might give it away, I have not decided yet. I might take this as a gentle hint from the universe to watch the show, but only time will tell.
Finally, my least favorite item, one mug, either of Venom or Carnage (I received Venom). I have a ton of mugs, though that does not stop me from buying more, but I am just not a fan of either of these. I am not a fan of Venom or Carnage in general, but the mugs are kind of ugly, to be honest. This is definitely going into my giveaway box from Loot Crate.
Now, onto the more exciting items! This month, I sprang for TWO Level Up items: The Wearable and the Accessories. I could barely contain my excitement when I received an e-mail yesterday afternoon telling me that my package had arrived. I ripped it open the moment I walked into the door. Unlike the regular crate, these came in a typical plastic bag in the Loot Crate aesthetic. These I took pictures of.
My absolute favorite item for this entire months theme was the first thing I pulled out, a Harley Quinn hanging accessory/make-up bag. This has a hook at the top that tucks neatly away when not in use, a top plastic pocket, a middle mess pocket, and a bottom removable plastic pocket. This has already been filled with my make-up for DragonCon and has been placed in the great stack of packing.
The other item from the Accessory Level Up was this cute Poison Ivy hair bow. It is pink and green, with the Bombshell version of Red on the pink. The bow is very cute, and I thought about keeping it, but I have friends who would appreciate this more, so like my Harley case above, this is already in my DragonCon packing pile to bring to a friend of mine who now lives in Georgia.
Finally, the wearable item. I was a little underwhelmed with this. I was hoping for something a little…well, more, but it is still cute. It is a basic black polyester polo shirt with a little Jabba the Hutt where you would be expecting to see a Lacoste alligator. At least the shirt is in a women’s size though. I will probably keep this, though I am not sure how much I will wear it.
Loot Crate includes a postcard in the Level Up bag. It allows all Level Up subscribers to see what the other Level Up items they did not receive were. I am glad I did not subscribe to the socks as well.
Finally, I leave you with the announcement I JUST received in my e-mail, next months theme!
Not sure how I feel about this one. I imagine a Crate full of Pokemon (which I am NOT a fan of at all). I may very likely cancel my Level Ups for this one, but we’ll see. I have a few more days until I need to worry about it charging.
