The Fan Empire August 2016

The Fan Empire is a monthly subscription that sends you out 4-6 peices of fandom merchandise.  Items can be anything from posters to t-shirts and are based around a different theme each month.  Previous fandoms include The Hunger Games and Harry Potter.  Boxes start at $14.95 a month but do go down a little with a longer plan.  Shipping to Canada was $5.50.  I am always wary of the fandom boxes because if you get a month that is not one of yours then it can feel like a waste.  Let’s see how we get on with this one.

Everything arrived in a bubble mailer with a sticker on the front.

The info card gave a pretty clear picture of the theme this month, “I Solemnly Swear”.  It’s Harry Potter themed, which I love so this should be a good month.

Marauders Map Pillow Case

This is cool.  You just add a 16 inch pillow form and you have a great addition to your house.  I don’t think any of my current pillows will fit but forms are pretty cheap so getting one will be easy.

I Solemnly Swear Pocket Mirror

The back of this is a small mirror.  I didn’t know what it was when I was taking photos so that’s why I didn’t get one of the back.  I thought it was a magnet, right up until it didn’t stick to my fridge.

Message In A Bottle Necklace

This necklace has a leather tie and in the bottle is a tiny Marauders map.  I’m not sure I’ll wear it but it’ll look good hanging off one of my HP pictures.

Marauders Map Key-Chain

I am getting quite the collection of key-chains.  This one is metal and on the back it has the phrase that makes the map work.

The Marauder Boys Bookmark

One can never have too many bookmarks. I always have more than one book on the go so I need plenty of them.

I’m very happy with this months bag.  I am a Potterhead so this is all stuff I like and am glad to get.  There was no issue with the card this month, and they were quite late but she had sent an email saying that would happen.  September’s theme is going to be Fandom Symbols.
