This months Geek Gear box came at me as a bit of a surprise, I didn’t expect it, so when it turned up at my door I was super excited, in the box each month you will get fun items depending on what fandom you choose when signing up, and obviously I picked Harry Potter and the surrounding world of wizardry.
This lovely little print, which like the others I have gotten from the box now sits in my children’s bedrooms, is from the recent movie Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, which I have yet to see for myself.. I know how could I not see it yet! but I am aware of the characters etc.. I have said before that many of the prints are fan made and honestly I hope they are paid for their contributions..
This month we had two prop items, I will get to the second prop shortly but the first prop is of course the world famous glasses worn by Harry himself, these are surprisingly heavy so aren’t a cheap item, they’re a bit on the small side, or my head is on the large size, either way I think they’re pretty cool and ready for when its Halloween and dress up time 🙂
The house item this month is this funky little clip on bow, it has a safety pin at the back so you can attack it to bags and even onto a thick hair tie, I have put mine onto my changing bag so it comes with me everywhere.. gotta rock the house pride!
As you can see from the photo, this is a large coin which is made to look like the opening of the Chamber of Secrets, its pretty heavy and a cool collectors item, not much I can really say on it really, its just a pretty cool ‘thing’ to put on display.
I also got another enamel pin to go with the Hagrid one from last month, This one is a Harry Potter one, Similar to the one last month you could collect three different colors, a basic one, a silver one and a gold one, I just had a basic one but I don’t mind, they’re pretty cool and Harry now sits next to Hagrid on my bag.
I think my favorite thing about the geek gear box is the t-shirts, when you are selecting the box you can choose sizes so no worries about if you get something to small, and if you get something large then you have a new shirt to wear to bed! This one is once again from the Fantastic Beast film, with the little pocket of Newt Scamander on the breast.
and finally the second prop item, a wand! I got a wand in a past box, it was Hermione’s wand and it was brilliant, I allowed my daughter to play with it as she loves the character, this wand was an bog standard one, didn’t have a character placed with it so it will be fun during role playing when they want to mess about pretending to be wizards.. it has a pretty good weight to it, which gives the feel of a real wand.. and its really well made!
There we have it, July’s monthly geek gear box! always full of fun items to play with and wear, I think out of all the cool boxes I’ve tried I like this one the most, while makeup and baby stuff is cool, I am such a nerd at heart and I love being able to share my enjoyment of my nerdiness with you. 🙂
