Loot Crate Wizarding World Unboxing | May 2017

It's that time again, and I'm SO EXCITED!!  Loot Crate's bi-monthly Wizarding World box is the only licensed Harry Potter box out there, and they never fail to disappoint.  This month's theme was centered around the Dark Arts, and as a Slytherin I was all about that. 

Usually there is a little Muggle Worthy sticker that goes here, a la Newt Scamander's briefcase, but this month we got this fantastic Dark Mark sticker.  I guess the nod to Newt wouldn't exactly be appropriate this month, as Hufflepuff's are generally the sunshine and light of the world!  I did the best that I could to keep this sticker pristine.  It's definitely a keeper!

And then the inside of the box happened.  AAAAAHHHHHH.  I am in love!!  As I've mentioned before, I'm totally one of those people who turn these boxes inside-out and keep them, and this one is certainly no exception.  It's that perfect fine line of creepy and cool, and I'm the biggest fan!  I love it so, so much.

I will say that I was genuinely so excited for just the actual box itself.  Not even faking it or being over expressive about it.  I really love that they go the extra mile with these to make them special and fit the theme!

But enough with my blabbering about boxes.  You're here for what's inside the box, right?  Let's take a look!

First up, we have the t-shirt!  Excuse the cat hair.  Macaroni made her home on it as soon as it came out of the box, which is fine since I'm honestly not crazy about this shirt.  I'm usually a villains fan, especially when it comes to Harry Potter villains, but Percival Graves didn't do much for me.  The text on the shirt reads "We've lived in the shadows for far too long."  If nothing else, it will be a good night shirt or workout shirt, or if Macaroni has her way a cat bed.

Next up is this pretty awesome pencil case!  This has Sirius Black's Azkaban number on there, and I think it's pretty cool!  So far this seems to be a lot of people's favorite thing from this box.  I may use it in my purse since I have my cool Have You Seen This Wizard compact mirror that I received in an old Fandom of the Month box.  I can have a whole Azkaban themed makeup situation!

This one is my favorite item from this box, even though I don't know that I'll use it a ton.  We received a stationary set all based around the Chamber of Secrets!  It included these cool black cards with the door to the Chamber embossed on the front, as well as black envelopes, and this cool wax seal set!  I've never tried doing a wax seal before but I'm looking forward to giving it a try!  Plus I also enjoy that I can use my white gel pens on this stationary.  It's going to look pretty badass!
Speaking of the Chamber of Secrets, our pin for the month is this cool Tom Riddle's Diary pin that has already been destroyed for you!  No need to worry about Tom trying to get you to kill your friends.  And just incase he's still able to try, you have a Basilisk fang handy to kill the diary!  But in all seriousness, I think this is a really neat pin.  It's definitely different and reminds me of something you'd find at Universal Studios!

The last item is another fan favorite!  We got replicas of Umbridge's cat plates!  As a cat person, I am SO STOKED on these.  Seriously.  My Aunt Ginny gets this box as well and sent me her's since she didn't see herself using them, so I have eight cat plates to hang up!  Crazy cat lady status:  Reached (as if I hadn't already).  The only thing I wish is that they would have made them lenticular so they looked like they were moving, but it certainly doesn't ruin them for me!  I love them so much!
Let me know what you thought of this month's box in the comments!  I want to hear what your favorite item is.  It's a tough choice, to be honest.  I feel like this was a really solid box!  The next box comes in July so make sure to keep an eye out for my unboxing!
