So I’ve been hearing about Loot Crate for a while (thanks to Philip DeFranco!), and I finally saw that they have a Harry Potter bi-monthly crate, and May’s crate theme was House Pride, so I just had to try it out! Here’s what was included:
This is a nice shirt, but I think it’s the main thing that really gave me pause when I was deciding to purchase this box. First off, there are a lot of people across the web saying that these shirts aren’t true to size, and second, it’s a “unisex” aka men’s shirt, so I knew it was probably going to end up in my drawer of “unisex” shirts that I really only wear to workout or be lazy in. And so it has. I don’t know that I’ll ever wear it for anything else.
Again, these are nice socks, but couldn’t I have gotten them at Target? They look just like something I could have, and have, gotten at Target.
This is a nice pin. It’s a lot bigger than any of the pins I’ve previously gotten in any other box, but I have my same dilemma as I do with those – what do I do with it? It’s been in the pin box since I got it.
I would have loved to have this watch necklace when I was in middle and high school. It has “cosplay” written all over it. Even if you aren’t going like all out, it’s a very costume-y piece of jewelry.
Like the pin, I have no idea what to do with this. I’ve never known what to do with patches, even when I got cool ones as a kid like “slept with the manatees.” I’ve always just associated patches with fixing holes in clothes, and that is not what I plan on doing with this one, or any other that I’ve gotten in other boxes. Though now that I’m looking at it closely, I’m seeing the quidditch hoops and snitch at the top, so maybe if I ever participate in Hogwarts Running Club‘s quidditch events, maybe I could add this to a running shirt to look official-like? Idk.
So overall, I was not impressed with this box. I will probably never use two or three of the five items included, and the others aren’t particularly special to me. I really think they could have gotten so much cooler items for this box – preferably things I haven’t seen before!
Did you receive May’s Wizarding World box? Or any other Loot Crate box? What did you think?
