Hi everyone! 😊 How are you all doing? Well, I hope!
So you might have noticed today’s post is a bit different from my usual posts. That’s because I recently learned about a project by Loot Crate where you can design the crate of your dreams!
I’m a big fan of everything pop culture, so I was very excited to be doing something related to that on my blog. I hope this is something you’ll enjoy reading as well!
So what is Loot Crate?
Loot Crate is a monthly subscription service to curb all of your geek needs. Each month you get a unique box containing an assortment of exclusive items pertaining to any number of fandoms and styles.
Each month features a different theme and collectives, which range from wearables, vinyl figures, homeware, comic books, etc. If you want something more specific, Loot Crate has several other types of subscriptions available too: Loot Anime, Loot Gaming, Loot Pets, Loot Wear, Wizarding World, Marvel, Firefly, etc.
My Dream Crate
Mystery boxes are pretty awesome but wouldn’t it be fun to put together your very own crate, too? We all have our wish lists, after all. So that’s what I’ll be doing today.
My dream crate would obviously need to cater to my fangirl side, but also represent who I am and what speaks to me the most. So I chose the theme:
1. Direwolf / Dragon Egg Bookends
Direwolves were the Stark siblings’ companions since they were young – they are intelligent, loyal and vicious when someone threatens their human. Daenerys’s babies were one of the coolest additions to the Game of Thrones world and their eggs have one of the most iconic looks in the history of fantasy.
You knew I had to have some bookish items in this crate, and these bookends nail it. They are absolutely beautiful, yet so useful too! Let’s be honest, though, I would probably need a lot more than five…
2. Marauder’s Map Tablet Case
Ever since The Order of The Phoenix I’ve been completely obsessed with the Marauders. I was a big fan of Sirius before, so watching him interact with the gang and realizing just how strong their friendship was really tugged at my heartstrings. Look, I’m a sucker for bromances, ok?
This case opens just like the original Marauders’ Map, which is just too magical for words! I could totally pretend it was the real deal.
3. Luna Bag / Backpack
Aaaah my childhood. I loved Sailor Moon growing up, no matter how cheesy it got. Two of my favorite characters were, of course, Luna and Artemis – always there to help save the day and be their hilarious selves. So, obviously, they had to make the list.
Ever since I saw these Sailor Moon themed bags, I instantly wanted one! Besides being super cute, they’re perfect for cat lovers as well. So, a 2-in-1 gift! What more could a girl want?
4. Pikachu Costume Plushie
Where would Ash be without his loyal Pokémon friends? Nowhere, that’s where. Or dead. Or both.
Seriously, guys, is there anything cuter than this Pikachu cosplaying Mega Charizard Y? I don’t think so. There are dozens of other costume options too, but I really like this one as it incorporates two of my favorite Pokémon!
5. Studio Ghibli Poster
Studio Ghibli, the father of all companion stories. How could I not have it in my crate? And since there’s no way I can choose just one Studio Ghibli movie, why not go with all of them?
This poster is just one example of many awesome ones out there but I love it to bits and would definitely want it showcased on my bedroom wall!
6. Ed’s Pocket Watch
Fullmetal Alchemist has a special place in my heart. Ed and Al went through so much together and this watch (and its inscription) is a reminder of both their strength and their bond.
All their travels were filled with loss, learning but most of all, friendship, and that’s why they also make the list. I really love pocket watches – they’re elegant and gorgeous. Even though I know I won’t actually use it, how could I not want this one?
7. Amy Pond T-Shirt
A Companions themed box would be nothing without a Doctor Who item in it, right?
Amy Pond has been my favorite since pretty much forever and I just love these two t-shirt designs. Both have really nice styles and include the iconic “The Girl Who Waited” in them, which is just the cherry on top for me. The second one features the Angels as well, so I couldn’t ask for more!
And that’s about it, guys! I hope you liked this post. I had tons of fun with it so let me know if I should do more of these 🙂 A normal crate probably wouldn’t have these many items but this is a dream crate, so I went all the way XD
Thank you so much for reading and until next time!
